6 months to go

6 months to go

It’s coming around quicker than I thought it would but we’re now counting down the final 6 months to the wedding. Eek!

The last wedding update I did was at 8 months to go. Here is what we have done since then:

Weddings rings

We bought the wedding rings in August. Mine only took a week to come in, but as my finger size isn’t available in stores, it had to be shipped off to be re-sized. That said, it all went rather smoothly. Joe’s, however, hadn’t arrived after a month so he enquired and was told they’d made an error and it needed re-ordering. When it finally arrived, Ernest Jones gave us 10% off our entire order for the inconvenience as well as a bottle of bubbly to say sorry. Winner!

P.S The size difference between our rings is hilarious. I’ll show you once we’re married…

Invites

All of the day invites have been sent and we’re starting to get most of the RSVP’s back. The evening invites have been written and will be going out next week. I’m loving that so many of our guests are going to be staying in the hotel with us! As I have quite a big family, it’s not often we’re able to get together, so I’m super excited and mega grateful for everyone really getting involved.

By the way, for those that have asked, I did make the invites myself. I will be doing a post on this at a later date but i want to wait until after the wedding so I’m not broadcasting the details to the whole world. Not that I have stalkers or anything…That’d be weird.

Joe’s room

Although we’re not generally a traditional bunch, we did decide that Joe would stay in a different hotel the night before the wedding. This is booked and he’ll be sharing a room with his best man, just like I’ll be sharing my room with Amy, my sister, best friend and Maid of Honour 🙂

Chair covers

Booked and paid for. Easily the most boring task of the wedding so far.

Photographer picked

Really chuffed with our choice of photographer and relieved we’ve got this booking done and dusted. More on this later…

Cake

We’ve picked our cake, and done some tasting (it was in the name of the wedding. I in no way just wanted to binge….) and we’re just waiting on some final details before booking next week. BOOM!

Fitness regime

I couldn’t put it off any longer. I’ve started with a personal trainer to get my butt into gear. My dress fitting is going to be either just before or just after Christmas, and with all the ‘cupcake tasting’ I’ve been doing, I definitely need some help.

Groomsmen’s suits

These are booked and paid for! I’m going to do a post on this separately, but needless to say, it was an awesome day and another huge task polished off.

Phew! That sounds like a lot doesn’t it? It still feels like we have plenty to get stuck into though. I have a week off work now to finalise the last big bookings we need to make and I’m hoping most of the planning is done before Christmas meaning that the New Year will be left free for fittings, alterations, fitness, and hen and stag weekends 🙂

Until the next update…
