Where did the time go?

How is it 3 weeks have gone by already???  Time is fly fly flying by - and that is NOT a good thing when you are trying to do so much planning.

One reason for the time slippage is that we went to Ohio for the Memorial Day weekend for a graduation celebration for Kandi's cousin.  It was really great to be able to catch up with friends and family.  And of course, talk about the ceremony.  Lots and lots - which is always fun for us!  We have many folks who are going to try to make the trip and it would be great to get to see them.

We officially received the contract from our reception venue.  That had a few bumps in the road that we needed to work out but as of yesterday we got the confirmation that it should be smooth sailing! Woo hoo!

So as of today we have deposits/contracts out on our florist, photographer, bartender, venue and by the end of the week we will have one out for our caterer as well.  Then hopefully in the next few weeks we can make a decision on a "Day of Coordinator" because we realized that no matter what we want to do or wish we could do, we just can't be in two places at once.  We can't be at the venue making sure stuff is getting ready AND be at the church at the same time.  We even have a really strong lead on a seamstress for Kandi's outfit!

It's exciting to think that the "major" planning will soon be over!  Of course, this means that the really major planning it still to come.  We've been looking into doing electronic RSVPs and we need to figure that out before we can send the invites, but of course before that we have to send the goodies we got for Save the Dates. All the tiny paper goods details can be almost mind numbing.  And then there's the details of what the ceremony itself will include.  What DIY projects we've been looking at that we will decide to undertake.  All of those little details that don't seem like much, but when applied consistently could be like Chinese water torture - IF you weren't doing it with someone you love so very much and laughing about it the whole time. 

Luckily, we are.  :)
