Last night I worked on the wedding program while David was at band practice. My first trial run at creating the program was half good half bad…I liked the way it turned out but I had formatted it wrong so instead of coming out like a booklet it came out weird…I’ll have to cut each sheet of paper and that is too much work, plus it doesn’t have all the info I want and some of what I realized isn’t what I want. David really liked it so I am at least headed in the right direction. I am now conducting some more research.
I’m also researching cake toppers, as well as a hair comb/brooch that I like.
We also finalized most of what we’re doing in regard to the ceremony. We’re writing our own vows, but there is so much more to a wedding than the vows. I’ve completed my vows, but need to fine tune them. David, on the other hand, is still working on his. So we went through the book I have about ceremony’s and figured out what we wanted in regard to opening words, gathering words, ring part of the ceremony, final blessing, etc…
We’ve also figured out which readings we want, as well as what we’re doing about a song, but we still need to figure which song and I need to make sure my uncle can sing and play the song. I am really excited about how much is coming together.
I’ve also begun saving all the empty sauce jars, Starbucks cold frappe bottles, etc to use as decorations since I now know that I can spray paint them whatever color I want and put flowers in them…YAY!
Since we spent the money that we were going to use to buy the invitation supplies on contacts for me, and on fixing my broken glasses, we now have to wait on buying the invitation supplies, which we really need to get working on because we don’t have that much time left before they need to go out. But the good news is, we’re cutting our guest list down. We’re only inviting close friends and family. If we haven’t seen them or talked to them in years then we’re not inviting them. David’s attitude at first was “The more the merrier,” and I understood, but I really don’t want people I don’t know at my wedding, nor do I want people I never talk to or see…Part of the great thing about our wedding theme is that it’s a party with a wedding, like a family get-together and if we have people there that aren’t our family or that don’t feel like family (like how your close friends feel) then it will take away from the feel of the wedding. So that will help us afford to have more decorations, the photography, the bouquets, etc…
I feel a little overwhelmed with how much
I we still need to do, but I’m also excited about everything we do have done and with what we are doing.
