Still a truckin'

So things are still moving along. I know we are still way ahead of the game but I can't help but be anxious to get more done. I am anxious about getting the reception venue booked. I keep telling myself that once that is done, I will be able to relax some but really, who am I kidding?? I have been a lot better than I ever thought I would be though. This is a lot of fun (I know, I know, so FAR) but I have really enjoyed most of this process. But then again, talk to me again in 6 months and see how I feel about it. I do feel excited that we have gotten a few big things out of the way. First, the church then my DRESS..(which my the way is my new favorite thing in the whole wide world). I want to go visit the sample at the store just about every day. Also, we have pretty much decided on a photographer (Emily) and all we lack with that is sending in the contract with the deposit. Hopefully we will have that done this week. We both really liked her and think she will do a fabulous job at our wedding. She reminds me a lot of my sister's photographer who is based out of North Carolina and we really loved her pictures and the way that she captured the day. That is one of the initial things that drew me to her. I am really glad that Mr. Stilts and I actually agreed on SOMETHING on the first try. We walked out of our meeting with Emily and both said, "she is really great". So YAY score for Emily!!!
Some people we have been dealing with are a little off and this really surprises me. I would think that people in this industry would be on top of things but GEEZ. Some people just seem really sort of air-headish (ok, not a word but it makes sense to me). I won't go into specifics but it seems like certain people just can't seem to get things right on paper. We have gone over it a million times verbally and it seems to register there but apparently the time it takes to get from the brain to the paper something malfunctions. I am crossing my fingers and my toes that this gets resolved soon, like today. That's a check mark I am SO ready for. I guess even though I have watched and helped friends and family go through the wedding process I never really realized all the componentsthat go into one. I will say that I have greatly improved on my "wheeling and dealing" skills. Something I have NEVER had before. I rock.
I do have something else done though. I have finally asked all my bridesmaids to be in the wedding. We weren't sure if we were going to stay in town for a while and so I held off asking all of them. I am really happy that they all said yes and want to be a part of Mr. Stilts and I's wedding day. I am so excited about it all and even though I know the time between now and March 20,2010 is going to fly by, I'm ok with it. I know we will get everything done and it will be perfect.

  1. I know how you feel! At first, everything seemed to happen pretty quickly. I am an out-of-town bride so I did a lot of searching online and found a lot of vendors and was able to eliminate a lot of them without having to do tons of leg work. We found the perfect ceremony location, I found a great dress pattern (I'm having mine made) but the reception site we want can't be booked 'til six months out... That makes me sooo nervous! I'm debating whether to book somewhere else, just to be safe. Ahh!
