Rain, Rain, Go Away!

What a rainy, gloomy, chilly day we've had in Columbus today! Actually the past two days have been gross. I have wanted nothing  more than to just lay in bed all day long and do nothing but nap and watch movies. It'd be nice if we had a fire place that didn't cause our smoke detector to go off every time we used it too! :)

We officially cannot cancel our wedding (not that we'd ever in a million years want to), but our friends and family are starting to receive our Save-the-Dates!! I am thrilled that we finally got them sent out and they're already getting delivered! I am actually surprised with the postal service!

I know I probably say this quite often, but I cannot believe how fast the planning process goes! we have exactly 7 months, 7 days, 21 hours, and 28 minutes until our wedding and everything is going by so quickly. I can't even think about all of the things we still have to do. In the next 7 months we have to pick our bridesmaid dresses, decide on a florist and DJ, go to food tastings, pre-marital classes at church, pick out invitations, get my dress altered, decide on a suit for the guys... I can't even fathom how all of that and then some is going to be completed in the next 7 months! I'm so thankful for the people in our lives who actually want to help us with this HUGE to do list!

...Are finished! FINALLY!! I feel like we have been so far behind on wedding planning, so I am so happy to finally have these done! All I am waiting on now is to have the envelopes printed so I can put them in the mail!!

Getting everything ready... I sat down on Sunday for THREE hours and attached the photo corners and pictures to the car stock!

Final product! I love them and can't wait until our friends and family get them (hopefully by the end of this week)!! ;)

With one item checked off my list, there are a ton more that I haven't checked off. For instance, I STILL do not have a florist! This is becoming frustrating! I have heard some not so great things about the florists I've already met with and the one a**hole still hasn't even given me a quote! Who knew finding a florist would be so hard! I'm making one more appointment this week, hopefully they will be able to squeeze me in.

So we have no florist, no DJ... We haven't even begun looking at DJs!! I keep telling myself, and Matt, that our goal for the week is to schedule some appointments with DJs so we can make a decision and have all the major vendors booked but we have been so busy it keeps slipping my mind!

I am going straight home from work and googling Columbus DJs (right after I Pinterest and catch up on the bloggy world)!! Haha! Just kidding... Kind of!

Matthew got out of coming to florist appointments and to my appointment with the Venue, but he's not getting out of me to these appointments! I feel like he would be much better at choosing a DJ than I would be so... :)

Today has been so gloomy. I would much rather be at home, on my couch watching daytime TV than at work today but hey, I have a wedding to pay for! No more lazy days off until after May 5, 2012!!!

Engagement Pictures!

Happy Labor Day! My future hubby and I have had a very relaxing labor day weekend! Aside from working Saturday and going out with some friends to celebrate September birthdays on Saturday night, we've done a whole lotta nothin'!! I can't remember the last time we had nothing to do!

I have to say, planning our wedding has been so much fun thus far and I feel like we're moving along and making good progress! I have my last (hopefully) florist appointment coming up on Thursday and this week Matt and I agreed to research and call potential DJ's!

Our photographer finished editing our engagement pictures! YESS!!! And it just makes me that much more excited to be marrying Matthew! I love that we'll have these pictures to show our children and grandchildren one day! And... looking at our engagement photos makes me all  happy inside thinking about how our wedding pics will turn out!

The ONE thing I have been disappointed in so far is that one of the florist I met with never e-mailed me back with an estimate! RUDE! I really liked the guy when I met with him but it's been almost three weeks and I haven't gotten a phone call or an e-mail with a price quote. Looks like he's outta the running!

Leaving you with some of our engagement pics! :)
