Days 324 - 329

i cannot believe it's already sunday again. the weeks are zooming by way too fast! fairly busy week in wedding planning i suppose...here's the rundown --
  • we received the ring vessel! that order was super speedy and it's beautiful! so excited for everyone to see it!
  • the rsvp's have started to roll in-- it's really happening! and really soon! getting more excited by the day.
  • my new dress from boden arrived and i think it will be the rehearsal dinner/ night out dress.and it fits perfectly and was on sale. could not be happier finding a cute dress for under $30!

  •  the chalkboard paint was also out and the frames are looking cool. i love being able to re-purpose old things! it just makes me happy.
  •  and i found more shutters!! $20 for 3 shutters just a few towns over (a nice change from most of my crazy craigslist adventures!). now i think i'm finally ok with what we have. though i really enjoy the hunt!
  • we attempted to head out to saugus, ma to see a girl about some frames, but she cancelled on me. hopefully i'll be able to snag the cool frames she used in her wedding this week sometime.
  • oh and we hung one of the windows frames on the wall today -- it's looks really cool, especially after painting 1 of the walls a lovely shade of goldenrod. of course it'll look even better once it's filled with colorful pics. i also get really excited to use the wedding decor purchases in our house, in case that wasn't obvious already :)
  
lots to do this week - on the list so far--
  • try on dresses with jewelry to make see if everything works
  • fill up our frames! which means ordering engagement pics and printing out old family/childhood pictures
  • make a final decision / call for reservations for the night before shin-dig
  • more ceremony stuff
  • order liana's ring
  • figure out photo booth stuff
  • figure out a signature cocktail that is served over ice and with straws...we welcome suggestions!

Can there not be sugar in the cocktail? There are ways of having it be sweet but w/out sugar...

I'm ridiculous. :)

About this blog

in an effort to keep me sane, relaxed, organized, humored, and hopefully useful to others, i'm going to document the next 365 days of wedding planning. i'd also like this to be a way to keep family and friends that don't live in boston feeling like they're in the know and involved over the next year. in a nutshell - liana and i are having a very non-traditional, modern wedding with vintage and sustainable elements. these 'elements' are still in progress and over the next year, we'll be on ebay, craigslist, random blogs and websites, trekking out to various antique fairs in New England, and using the skills of our friends and family for DIY projects.
