We made GREAT strides in the wedding planning this weekend. We finally sat down and actually made a wedding/honeymoon budget (on paper mind you!) and talked seriously about saving and figuring out what we need/want at our wedding and same for the honeymoon. Dave's finally starting to get a tiny bit excited I think, which I am SO thankful for...because I have been AMAZINGLY excited, you know us girls, give us something to plan and have us shopping and organizing and we are excited, but it sometimes takes a lot to get the guys involved!
As for the honeymoon we looked at cruises this weekend and found an AWESOME one that leaves out of San Juan, Puerto Rico (so we'd have to fly there) and goes to like 7 different places, St Thomas, the Dominican, Barbados, St Lucia, St Kitts & St Maarten! So that is like MAJOR, I mean wow that would be an amazing start to my non-outside of the US travel! I'd get to see SO many places!!
As for our wedding talk, I think I am going to cut down on some of my expenses...instead of spending $150 on cake servers and flutes, I think I'll try to cut that down! A Lot! LOL That is a tad ridiculous huh? Although the Park Avenue Things Remembered set still has my heart, there's other things I'd rather spend that money on!
So on my list for this week is to find out measurements for tables so that I can start getting fabric so my mom can start on table linens. I also need to call and check on additional chair rentals for the ceremony site and get that going. Also need to start calling around to caterers, which we think we are just going to do BBQ so that'll be fairly easy. Then I need to set up a tasting/appt with the bakery for the next few weeks to go ahead and get one of the other costly things checked off the list!
I guess I'll close this post off for now until I think of more to gab about :)
