We are 3 months away from our wedding. 3 months. 92 days. Double-digit-days remain!
On the agenda for 3 months out:
1. Finish addressing invitations.
2. Details. Yesterday, I finished the majority of our ceremony outline/text (Mark still needs to read through it) and we chose our ceremony songs. Next, I want to get supplies to do some DIY ceremony programs, escort cards, and table numbers. I'm so so so SO not into DIYing anything, but I'd like to go the cheapest route possible and that seems to be it. There's no guarantee that I'll finish that stuff this month, but I at least want to have a plan in motion.
3. Hair & Make-Up. I'm not sure why I've been avoiding this so much. I really need to choose somewhere to get my hair done and set up a trial. I finally got my hair highlighted last night after about 4-5 months, though I still need it cut. I think maybe I've just been embarrassed of my untamed, damaged locks that I've been hiding from the world of bridal styling. There's no time to lose, now.
I'm doubtful that I'll be able to accomplish much else, especially if I'm attempting to do anything DIY related. We have so much to do, and progress still feels kind of slow. I think at the point we are blaming school and finishing up this semester as the major culprit. Lucky for me, next week one of my classes is canceled, meaning I'll only have two classes to attend (wahoo). Although I have a few assignments in lieu of class, that still leaves me a lot more time to get some wedding related things done.
Last night we attended a cupcake tasting event through our bakery. I had been looking forward to this event since we booked her, and it certainly did not disappoint. There were actually quite a lot of attendants and the bakery is pretty small, but the cupcakes were so delicious and I can't wait for our guests to enjoy mini cupcake utopia.
My favorite cupcake flavor was the first one we tried, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. The chocolate was very understated and the peanut butter buttercream was excellent. The cake itself was very moist, for whatever reason it seemed to be more moist than a lot of the other cupcake flavors. I was very tempted to take more than one of those, but I refrained :)
Events like this aren't good for a girl trying to eat healthy. The cupcakes were pretty tiny, but how can I be expected to take just one bite and waste the rest? There were a few circumstances where I may have eaten the whole cupcake, and a bit of a stomach ache may have resulted :/
After much deliberation, I also bought a dress! This is my "multi-functional" dress for the moment that I plan to wear to both showers, the rehearsal dinner, and possibly even my graduation. It's a little bit non-conventional, almost bohemian, but it's white so I figured it fit. I may go back and purchase my second choice dress also, but we'll see where funds lie.
What do you think?
Odds are it will be too cold to wear just the dress itself, so I'd probably pair it with this jacket/sweater thing. It's not a sweater...it's just one of those "things," I don't know what it's called.
And maybe these shoes? They might be too colorful. Excuse the kitty.
Oh Samantha and her eyelet clothing items. Even shoes make an appearance in the collection.
