According to the Target Wedding Registry I just created a few minutes ago, I have less than 150 days till my wedding.
Yikes! Where did the time go?
Based on the Mindy Weiss Wedding Planning Planner that I purchased months ago and only opened today, I am way, way behind on wedding planning. I don’t even have a bridal party yet! But the big things have been booked so that makes me happy. The rest can all come later.
Last year, Rob and I made St. Matthew’s our new spiritual home. I was very hesitant about getting married in a Catholic church (mainly I was concerned that we would be rejected since we live together) but we were very lucky to find a wonderful, accepting (and beautiful) parish! We will get married here, get our children baptized here, and hold our funeral services here. This was the biggest decision we made in the whole wedding process so far and I could not be happier.
On a side note, I get extremely nervous whenever I attend a service here. The aisle looks really, really long.
With the church in place, it made finding a reception site a lot easier! Carnegie Institute is home to an organization dedicated to scientific discovery. What really sold me was the upstairs library which is full of lots of books and smells of rich mahogany.
I don’t even want to talk about this because wedding food is notoriously bad. Please wish us luck, at least our tasting was good! This was my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process!
Rob and I purchased our wedding bands in December at Quest. I can’t be happier with my purchase, which just happens to be my very first large scale purchase ever (besides my car). Sometimes when we are bored, Rob and I try on our rings and pretend we are married.
Honestly I don’t even remember how it looks like and have to google it every once in a while to refresh my memory. This was my least favorite part of wedding planning. I will say the following things though – try something that you would not normally try on and you will know when you have found “the one” immediately!
