Emily has been telling me for two months that it's particularly exciting when you reach the actual month of your wedding and can say, "I'm getting married this month!" Technically, that'll be on Tuesday; but today is an important day because today the countdown clock has officially dipped under 30 days. That means tomorrow is exactly one month from our wedding.
At one month out, here are some things that are going on:
-We're going to meet with the photographer probably this week to discuss times and poses and groupings, etc.
-The groomsmen's ties need to be settled. My guess is we're going to rent them with the tuxes, but Ben was hoping to buy some and the only problem with that is that the popular purple color for men this year is grape purple, not lavender purple. He's still pondering having silver ties, but we'll probably take care of that for sure over the next few days.
-We're still waiting on the house closing, but I've been pondering over paint chips and looking at pictures and we're ready to get the house set up as soon as we have keys. If anyone's interested, the colors are mainly linen browns, cream, slate blue, and a touch of fern green. We might have a hint of a dusty rose color around too. We'll see.
-Showers are all done (and boy, were they nice!).
-We're gearing up to call everyone who hasn't RSVP'd by the end of this week.
-Dress fittings for the girls will probably be Tuesday evening if we can get it set up.
-We'd like to discuss the ceremony with Dad this week.
-I have to pick out a bouquet.
-My ring needs resizing from a 6 to a 5.5.
-The shortbread cookies for the favors are going to be tested (maybe Monday morning).
There are lots of other things, but for now that's the main to-do list!
