Wedding Invitation

Change of RSVPS

In order to save $$$, Nate and I decided to implement a rule that only people who are in serious relationships, engaged, or married can bring a guest; otherwise, no guests. Plus, we don't want a ton of people that we don't even know at our wedding and we have a lot of cousins that we don't want brining random people just to have a guest.

We also decided to have an adult only reception which will also cut down significantly on costs of children who won't even eat the $30 meal.

So....I am re-ordering our RSVP postcards to say:

M_______________________________

________ accept with pleasure

________ seats have been reserved in your honour

(this way, we can fill in how many seats they get)

I got VERY good deals on my dresses for my bridal shower and rehearsal! The ivory/satin dress is for the rehearsal (very bridal) and the other dress is for my bridal shower :)

Glad to have these off my list of To Dos before the wedding!

Wedding Rings And Jewelry
Feb 15, 2010

Bought our wedding bands!

Nate and I bought our wedding bands this past weekend and we were actually able to take them home with us that same day! I really love my band and can't wait to be able to wear it in 3 months. It is a 1 ct., platinum, eternity band (30 diamonds). I will officially be wearing 45 diamonds on my ring finger after the wedding!!! Ah! :)

Nate's ring is traditional, like him, and both rings have a lifetime guarantee for anything from losing diamonds to re-dipping Nate's ring in white gold whenever he wants.

SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are staying at an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic - Punta Cana for one week. We got a really good deal through applevacations.com including the non-stop flight, hotel, meals, tips, activities (wind surfing, snorkeling), and more fun stuff!

Picked out the Tuxes
Nov 24, 2009

Men's Warehouse

I get to spend the week with Nate so one of the things that we got done was picking out the tuxes and getting him measured. I really like the style that we went with....all the groomsmen will have black shirts with black vests/ties and Nate will have a white shirt with an ivory vest/tie. :) I think that it will look very classy and go well with the all black/formal bridesmaid dresses.
