ITS SO CLOSE!!!
pretty much a week til i get married!!! yeah!!!! i cant wait for it to get here!!!!!!!! i hope this next week goes by fast! i'll be a married woman!! woo hoo!!!
im so upset!
so the chapel we are supposed to be getting married at in 12 days decided to call me friday and tell me that we cant get married in there due to a leak thats been going on for years and now the roof is about to FALL IN!!!!! i was like, and you tell me this 2 weeks before the wedding??? they didnt give us a choice to take a chance, they told us we had to find some where else to get married. they refunded us all of our money. i was so upset. BUT... the church next door owns the chapel, so theyre going to let us use their church for free to get married in. we went and looked at it and its a lot bigger and it is really pretty, so i guess it will do. we were just really excited about getting married at the chapel because it was the first church built in our city, so its the oldest here, and it is so pretty on the inside!! but i guess all that matters is that i am still going to be able to get married to the love of my life. i told him if we had to go to the courthouse that day to get married, that we would haha!! im glad the church is right next door so everyone that we sent invitations to will see the sign that we're having made that says the wedding is moved to next door. other than that, everything is coming along great. im going to pick up the favors and programs tomorrow, then i'll post a picture of them!! 12 MORE DAYS!!!!
*Who all is having a lingerie party??*
I didnt even know until today that a couple of my bridesmaids are throwing me a lingerie shower. And i will be blushing through the whole thing. I get embarassed with this kind of stuff! but hopefully i will live through it!! haha!! cade thinks its a great idea of course!! i think itll be fun!! no telling what some of my friends will buy just to see my cheeks turn red!! i think its going to be next weekend, then we're going out to eat and have some drinks for the bachelorette party!!
So, our rehersal dinner is downtown at a restaurant called The Waldron. We had to book the downstairs because there was another rehersal dinner that night and they had already booked the upstairs, which is what i wanted :(..........because we were just going to have to close off part of the downstairs instead of having the upstairs to our selves.
Well, the restaurant called us yesterday and said that:
THE OTHER COUPLE HAD CALLED OFF THEIR WEDDING SO WE COULD HAVE THE UPSTAIRS!!!!!! ****YEAH FOR US, (sad for the other couple that called off their wedding) BUT STILL I WAS SO EXCITED!!! NOW WE'RE UPSTAIRS WHERE NO OTHER PEOPLE WILL BE AROUND AND THE BAR WILL BE RIGHT BESIDE OUR ROOM SO THE MEN CAN GO OUT AND TALK OR GET A BEER OR WHATEVER.****
So now we can decorate the room the way we want too and dont have to worry about other people being around us and all the noise that came with having to be downstairs!!
Wedding Rings And Jewelry
i FiNALLY TOOK iT TO GET CLEANED AND SiZED
So we took our wedding bands to get sized last monday....and i also finally left my engagement ring to get sized! i know i know, i should have taken it a long time ago but i just didnt want to leave it there for a week. well they called yesterday and said it was ready, so when the fiance got off work we went to pick it up. i go in, try it on and its still too big......i was like did yall size this?? they were like, "oh were we supposed to size your engagement ring too? we thought we were just supposed to clean it!" i about FREAKED out!!! Well yeah you were supposed to size it, i see where you wrote it down on that piece of paper right in front of your face!!!!!!
so......im still without my beloved engagement ring. for now, im wearing a fake one!! haha!! hopefully itll be done by friday. our wedding bands are done, but i'll just pick them up when my engagement ring gets done too!! i just miss it so bad!! :(
OH! and i got the bridesmaids their pearls. theyre wrapped up so cute!! i'll have to take a picture of them and put it up!!! the jewelry store wrapped them in ivory paper with brown swirlies on it and a light pink bow......to match the colors of the wedding. i thought that was a nice touch!! yeah!!!
***SORRY I HAVENT UPDATED, THIS FREAKIN SITE HAS BEEN DOWN ALL WEEKEND!!!***
So this week the bridesmaids dresses came in and all my girls went and got them fitted or went a head and took them home!! the guys have been fitted for their tuxes so they should be in really soon!!! We met at the church sunday with my 2 wedding directors and went over everything. Where flowers would be, where bridesmaids and groomsmen will stand, where candles will be and a whole lot more things. Then we went over to the reception site, which is right across the street, and went over where all the tables and food will be. I took the programs today to be printed. It'll take them about a week. Our favors should be done this week. what else??......um......we've been working on our house to keep us busy and to help time go by faster. we've got 2 more bedrooms to paint and we still have to finish the kitchen, so i cant wait for the house to be done.
OH!! what do yall think about us switching places with the minister....instead of our backs being toward everyone while we're saying our vows, the preacher will have his back towards them and we will be facing them. everyone loves the idea and says they would like that because they can see us and the photographer will be able to get some good pictures of us. My fiance doesnt like the idea, hes old fashioned, but i think i'll be able to talk him into it.
So im getting really really excited and cant wait for it to get here! my girls are planning my bachelorette party right now!!! yeah!!!!
