Long delayed update

So I bought a mason Jar at the swap meet, well Mitchell's dad bought it for us, but we brought it home =).  It's full of cornmeal....for now.  I'm going to use it as a test for our centerpieces.  Hopefully I like it or its back to the drawing board.

We have a meeting with our photographer this Friday to get stuff figured out; shot lists, the second shooter, preliminary day plan, etc.  We are trying to set up a meeting with the venue to figure out linens and the plan for the day and to book their B&B overnight.  Its hard right now with my schedule because I'm just so busy, but we'll make it work.

Once those things are settled we're going to try cakes, then menus, then who knows...

Procrastination....uh oh

Last week I ordered swatches for the bridesmaid dress because we are ordering them online but I panicked because I didn't want to order anything without being sure of the color.  Well I got the swatches yesterday, loved them.  So I know have colors (and once we order the dresses I can't change my theory).  One huge step done.   Now that colors are decided I can start buying stuff and crafting...yikes.

In other news, we are meeting with an officiant Thursday.  She's a woman I met at the Bridal Bazaar, also happens to be one of The Knot's top picks.  We are on the fence about having a woman officiant, I'm all for equality and all that, I've just never been to a wedding where there was a female officiant so I have to get out of that mindset.  She was very nice when I meet her and very easy to talk to so that's good.  Thank you Nicole for making me open minded, lol.

 Next up on the planning block: invites (just in time for Arielle and Caitlin to come visit), cake, and center pieces.
