Wedding Update

In an effort to update more often, I’m posting a bit of a wedding update.
I hate planning weddings. Well, I hate planning my own. Very few things have worked out the way we originally envisioned. Luckily, though, we at least have a place to go after the wedding for good food, today we’re going to Cupcake Royale to secure cupcakage. As for meals w/ the fam… looks like we’re going to try for a big fam dinner on Wed, dinner w/ my fam on Thu and chill out w/ friends on Fri. We need to make reservations for Wed and Thu.

We have received the umbrellas for the wedding. I am hoping that they really aren’t necessary for next week, but I’m glad we have them if only as souviniers.

Marta has been helping to keep me sane this weekend. She’s a take-charge kind of woman, and I am so lucky to have her friendship, her tenacity, and on Wednesday, her additional presence. She will be assisting Amy , who has been laid up for 2 wks due to intense pain. Both of them will be arriving the same time, which is great, because hopefully they should still be in town before any of the relatives.

Speaking of Chicago folx, I am pleased that Fard and Danyell will be coming to Seattle this coming weekend!

I only wish that my other Chicago friends could come too. You know who you are. 🙂

The dress (made by Kate) will be coming w/ Marta and Amy . The rings, which are coming by way of Sumiche are due around Tuesday, I think. We have seen the waxes of them, and they should be gorgeous. The suit is due around Tuesday or Wednesday, and we’ll pick that up at the shop. The extra car keys so we don’t lose the one key we have are due to be ready by Thursday. My new glasses are due around Tuesday or Wednesday. I need to book a spa visit (at Habitude, if only to get my hands and feet exfoliated and mani/pedicured. I need to get my hair done (maybe I’ll do that today.) I need to find jewelry to go w/ my dress. Maybe flowers for my hair. And then we need to make the reservations for Wed and Thu night. Yikes. This is crazy. I can’t wait til we get to our honeymoon suite.

Family and friends are due in starting Wednesday.

The wedding is on Saturday.

And Monday, I’ll go into my workplace and say, “Hey, I need to change my status from Single to Married.”

And that is that.

I hope I’m not forgetting anything.
