Wedding Plans

Now that Skylar has arrived, we are back into the wedding planning full swing. For those of you that are newer to reading, Eli and I got married in October of 2008 but are having a big wedding this July. We have most everything done, but are now buttoning down the rest of the details.

So far we have the photographer picked out along with the videographer, DJ, cake, flowers, place (for wedding and reception), caterer, all center pieces are done, we have most of the favors done other than last minute touches. I know there is a lot more, but I can't think of it all off the top of my head right now.

Today I went with my mom and grandma to do some more wedding things. We went the rental place to figure out the tables and that sort of thing. Let me just tell you that the reception is going to be beautiful. The tables are going to look awesome and to think that everything on them that you see (other than the plates, glasses, napkins, etc.) will all be hand crafted! I am so excited. Being able to see it was awesome. We got a few more things that we need to do some touches, got some decorations for the cocktail tables, and then some. I am just stoked. We were so productive. It feels so good to know that things are getting done.

In a couple weeks we will be going to pick out bridesmaid dresses. I had one picked out that I loved, but the place that it was from is completely flaky. Now that I have decided not to use them, I have heard from a few different people nothing but bad things. So, we are starting from square one there. I know what dress I want to get for Swae to wear, now I just have to buy it. And I want to look for something cute for Skylar to wear because she has to look like a little princess too!

Eli and I went on Sunday to wear he bought my engagement ring to get it sized. I didn't do it sooner since I found out I was pregnant right at the same time of getting engaged and I didn't want to take a chance of swelling and not being able to wear it. So I am without it for a week while it is getting made much smaller. Let me just tell you all how naked I feel. I freaked out earlier feeling like I had lost it or something until I remembered where it was. And the best part!!!! While we were there, we started looking at wedding bands and we found the perfect one. Two more payments and it is ours. It is absolutely beautiful. I am so excited.

I can't believe that the wedding is less that four months away. I can't wait. This is something that I have dreamed about my entire life and after figuring out the touches we did today, I have no doubt that it is going to be beautiful. I can't wait to add the new piece to my ring. I can't wait to walk down the aisle to the love of my life. Swae and Seth are so excited. They love knowing that they get to be a part of something so important in our lives, something so important for their lives.

I no longer have baby on the brain, just wedding! Don't get me wrong, I am all about loving on Skylar and enjoying every minute, but now her and I will be busy getting last minute things done.
