The title of this post pretty much sums up my weekend. The fiance' and I were very productive this weekend. We completed another wedding project and have almost finished another. I love that our list is getting shorter and shorter!

This past weekend was also the date that we gave our guests to have their RSVP's in. Now I know that we will probably still get some in the coming weeks. We actually planned for that, but with our wedding being right after the holidays, we didn't want the RSVP's getting lost in all of the holiday mail. So over the next couple of weeks, I will probably be harassing some people to see if they are coming to the wedding or not. I hate to have to do that, but we definitely need to know who is coming and who isn't. Not only do we need a number to give to our caterer, but we also have a seating chart and place cards to do, so it is kind of an important thing ya know?

Something else that we have been going back and forth with are Menu cards. I am absolutely in love with the idea of it, however, I am not in love with actually having to do the work, haha! So right now it is still up in the air. I keep thinking that this day only happens once and that I should do what I want with it, but then I think about all the work that I would have to do with ordering the card stock and then designing them and then printing them and it makes it seem like it is not important (even though if I do this, I think I will have Staples or an office place like that print these for me). I know that probably sounds horrible, but I am just not sure that I want to add more stuff to the mix. Knowing me I will go back and forth with this for a while.

Something that I get to look forward to today is that my jewelry is supposed to be here. I can't wait to get it and try it on. I hope that it looks as good on me as it did in the pictures. And luckily I already received a phone call saying that my alterations were done on my dress. And they have already scheduled me for my second fitting so that will be on the 2nd of December so I can take my jewelry and try it on with my dress really soon!

I think that is about it for today. Work is going to be pretty busy these next three days, so hopefully I make it out alive. And if I do, then I get a nice four day weekend. Too bad I have to get up at the butt crack of dawn on Thursday to help out with Thanksgiving dinner. I have never cooked Thanksgiving dinner so I am helping my brother this year so that he can teach me how to do everything so that eventually one day I can make my own Thanksgiving dinner for everyone. Hopefully I will have a few other posts this week, but if not, I hope that everyone has a great week and a great Thanksgiving!

Did you have to call and harass people about RSVPing? Also did you have an office supply type store print your programs and menu's? What program did you use to design these?



  1. yes, we had to call people who didn't seems to just be a fact of life..some people will just NEVER be as organized as we are :)

    getting your menu cards printed at staples does NOT sound horrible! It's a good idea..dealing with printers is a pain in the butt - design them in word and then have them print them for's a little time consuming, but not impossible, and can be a nice touch to your table.

  2. I have toyed with wanting to do menus too but I'm just not sure they are really necessary..although beautiful just not sure I want to take on an extra task. I am already sure I will have to hunt down people for RSVPs when it comes that time for me.

  3. Ugh, we had to track down so many people that didn't RSVP.. it was ridiculous. We also had around at least 100 people that RSVP'ed yes that didn't even show up. I really hope that doesn't happen to many people!

    I printed my own programs that I designed on pages on my mac. They were a pain in the butt, but I love them.


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
