Wedding Planning: 12 Days

Can you believe it?  I can't.  Wow.

Here is where we stand.  

Brides Gown, shoes, and accessories - Ready!

Brides Hair and Make up - Trial run a success!  Good to go for the big day!

Flower girl and Ring Bearer = Ready!

Flowers - ordered.  I pick them up early on Monday the 28th and drop them off to my friend Susan!

Centerpieces - Ready!

Plates, flatware, napkins, cups for hot and cold drinks - Ready!

Photographer - Lined up and Ready to Go.

Our venue is great, they are very helpful and easy to work with!

We have one hundred and four people who will be attending.  We will be comfortably squeezed in!  They use a wonderful online program called "All Seated."   This has allowed me to move tables around, put in our guest list, and if we were not doing open seating, we could even do the whole seating chart online!  Awesome tool!

The other evening we had a little gathering of friends to meet up casually and have time celebrating Emma's upcoming marriage. 

 I was thankful for a time to relax and visit with my good friend, Bee.  We've been friends for a very long time, and our girls are close. (that's one of her girls in the first photo with Emma)  We laugh a lot when we are together!

Her cousin also held a personal shower for her this past weekend. 

So I think we are just about ready.  The groom arrives this next week, and Emma can't wait!

Thanks for your interest and your encouragement.  Have a great weekend!
