10 months, 2 weeks, and 4 days to go (318 days!)
My checklist for this month looks like this:
As you can see, not too much going on at this point. I can actually check off a few items..
Bridal gown= check!
Book location of ceremony= check!
Book location of reception= check!
Book wedding planner [if deciding to have one]= check! (....my MOTHER!)Registry= Bed, Bath, & Beyond= check!
Not sure if many of you remember or not, but I posted this post a few weeks ago.
I fell in love with this place at first glance & knew it was the perfect spot for not only the reception, but the ceremony as well!
Two Thursday's ago, we officially booked it & reserved our dates :)
Our rehearsal will fall on Thursday, June 9th & the ceremony Friday, June 10th at 7:00pm.
The next big thing on our list is the honeymoon.
Believe it or not, according to Wedding Etiquette, the Groom's & his family pay for the honeymoon.
Still unsure? Here's a few website that show you who pays for what:
I've had this tiny poll posted on the right side of my blog since I first started it back in March.
These are the stats as of now:
I'm happy to announce that we are going with the majority on this one! [Hopefully, that is!]
We have been trying to decide for quite some time now. Well, I take that back. I have been trying to decide for quite some time. The Mr. could really care less. He's not into this whole wedding planning stuff....? Any others out there experience this same response from their significant other?? Ha. I just consider it a typical guy thing. I'd rather do it myself anyhow ;)
Ohhh, and the reallly cool thing?!
There are even HONEYMOON REGISTRIES now-a-days.
I had no idea.
Whoever came up with that was genius.
I feel certain we will have that registry available as soon as we know the final details!
But for now, I want to know where YOU went on your once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon!
Give us some advice:
from what I need to make sure we don't forget in our suitcases, which excursions were the best experience to any horror stories that you may have experienced along the way!
THE HONEYMOON ADVICE
Being a virgin, Bob was very nervous about his upcoming wedding night, so he decided to seek the advice of his friend John, who was quite the local Romeo. "Just relax, Bob," counseled John. "After all, you grew up on a farm, just do like the dogs do."
Right after the honeymoon the bride stormed over to her mother's house in tears and announced that she wasn't going to live under the same roof as Bob for even one more night.
"He's totally disgusting!" she wailed.
At first Bob's bride resisted her mother's attempts to find out the exact nature of the problem, but finally broke down. "Ma, he doesn't know anything at all about how to be romantic, how to make love . . . He just keeps smelling my ass and pissing on the bedpost!"
Anybody else need help in planning/booking a honeymoon? TheKnot has a really nice website where you can find the answers to most of your questions.
Have a great Wednesday Y'all!
