Only 4 months to go...

Our wedding day is only 4 months away! In some ways it seems so far away, yet it also seems like it's going to sneak up on us. The planning is going well so far. There are several big things that have been decided. There are also several big things that are still undecided.

Here's what has been accomplished so far...

-The date: July 5, 2008

-The wedding party

-The officiant: my grandfather

-The colors: sage, cream, and khaki

-Invitations and programs have been purchased

-Bridesmaids' dresses have been picked out

-Fabric for the bridesmaids' dresses has been ordered

Hopefully the ceremony and reception locations will be decided on soon. The cake, flowers, and decorations are the next big items that need to be finalized. Oh yeah, and a dress for me! Oh, and the guys' suits and ties. And, the wedding favors. And....oh boy, we've got a lot to do!!

Four months? Wow! That really puts things into perspective, doesn't it?! I pray, after this week, some big things will fall into place because that means it will be much easier to decide on and get a jump on the rest.

Wow! Four months???? :)

Hey Babe,

Don't be stressin' yourself too much about all those "oh, and's!" ;-) You're doing a wonderful job with it all, which only makes me more confident of the manner in which you'll keep our home.

I love you,

Strem: I am also praying and very hopeful that things will start falling into place in the next week or so.

Sweetheart, Thanks for being so encouraging! I'm really not stressing out too much. It's been a lot of fun so far!

It seems like you will never have enough time to get it all done. You'll get a little stressed and rushed; not everyone will agree with you about everything you want to do.

My aunt gave me the best advice during that time. "Something will go wrong and it will be ok." Repeat that over and over. As long as you keep that in mind, nothing is too drastic. :)

oh also, delegate, delegate, delegate. Anything that someone else can do let them do, after all everyone whats to help, and I promise you don't have to do it all yourself.

lydia said...

Dani, Thank you for the advice. Delegating has already come in handy and I'm sure it will even more so in the next few months. We are blessed to have so many friends and family who are willing to do anything to help. It's wonderful!
