Wedding Bells and Whistles

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, this may be redundant information.  Still, I want to gush all in one place (well, two places because I wrote about event planning on, as well, but that one is less gushy).

David and I are getting married September 5th here in San Francisco.  It’s less than 3 months away now – 86 days!  We’ve gotten a lot done but there’s still quite a bit to do.  On the DONE list, we have:

Invitations designed by Ruff House Art (via Etsy) printed, addressed, and waiting to be mailed (just a peak)

My wedding dress (that I got for $93! at the Jessica McClintock outlet) purchased

a blue diamond necklace bought for $30 on ubid

A San Francisco organic cake baker booked who will make us this beautiful Martha Stewart cake

the design of which was chosen to go along with our cake topper

A notched antique style wedding band from Da’Carli Jewelers in Florida that we searched high and low for

so that it matches my engagement ring (also blue diamond.  I like blue a lot.)

I also have (comfy) shoes, and we’ve booked our flight & accommodations for our honeymoon to Italy.

Obviously, there is still much to be done.  David is lucky that most of his stuff can wait (it’s always easier for guys, huh?) but we need to nail down a tux and figure out if there is a thin, lightweight ring out there that isn’t going to bug his fingers.  Oh, and I have to find someone to do my hair and make up that isn’t going to cost $500+ and we need to rent a tent for our backyard.  And buy wine.  And get my dress hemmed (I’m short).  And…probably other stuff that if I think about I’ll get anxious.  Wedding planning is a pain.

But, we are mostly there.  We have enough to actually have a wedding (David owns some nice suits if it came down to it)!  Yay!Enhanced by Zemanta

  1. Do you have a friend who could do your hair and makeup? That's what I did, and it only cost me the price of a flat iron and some lipstick.

  2. I'm loving ALL your wedding elements. You have good taste 🙂 Did you say September 5th? Because I might be in CA at that time visiting fam in Sactown!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not that I'm inviting myself to the wedding or anything 🙂 You will make an adorable, beautiful bride. Do you have anyone doing your make-up? If not, I kind of know some stuff 🙂

  3. Yes – September 5 and your invitation is in the mail chicky. I hope you can make it!!!

    I have a makeup/hair trial next week. Hopefully it goes well. If you see any inspiring photos to pass on, let me know. I have no idea what to do with my hair.

  4. Well…I've had friends try to do my hair and makeup before and, um, it hasn't turned out well. 😛 I ended up finding someone who fits in with my budget, though, so we'll see how it goes!
