Weddings on my mind...


No matter what is going on, somewhere in the back of my mind I have wedding details (decided and undecided) floating.

Monday morning before work, Mom and I went to the church where J and I are being married to look at reception facilities. Tuesday evening after work I met with the violinist for the wedding to go over music possibilities. Today--my day off--Mom and I got together with my friend who's making my bridal gown. We picked patterns to combine, found fabric, etc. Then, Mom and I spent 4 hours wondering the major stores at the mall nearby looking for potential bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dress. In case anyone was wondering, Mom and I aren't particularly good shoppers; we tire easily. Today, we just plunged ahead and were quite successful! We found two possibilities for bridesmaid dress (both significantly on sale), a top for Mom, wedding shoes for me, and then I decided a also needed a couple of cute clearance sundresses. Next week we're tackling catering, church coordinator, and photography. Progress is being made.

In other news, I think the fiance may have a replacement car. We've been looking for something for 3 weeks--he's had my car in the interim. Also last week I bought a much needed table and chairs from a consignment shop in town. It was an amazing deal, the woman knocked $45 of the sticker price and threw in an extra, almost matching chair! Doesn't it look just right in the apartment?
