It's Back...Wedding Wednesday

First of all, I wanted to send a huge thank you to so many of you for all the comments and advice on what we should fill our weekend with while we're in Atlanta in a few weeks... I very much appreciate the tips on hotels, eateries, and shops and will be taking advantage of as many as possible--only problem now is how do I narrow it down? =)
As for today, it's Hump Day which means Wedding talk time. 73 days/10.5 weeks to go and I am shocked at how fast its starting to fly by...hold on, it's going to be one bumpy ride!
Last night, Mom and Dad came over for an invitation stuffing party--I know, we know how to let loose, right? Jeff cooked dinner while us three sat down and got down to business...a little assembly line, I sealed and stamped while Mom and Dad assembled the suite {invitation, response card and envelope, tissue, and accomodations/information cards} and double checked inner and outer envelopes to make sure they were correct! So efficient--1/2 are now done and then we'll finish the other 1/2 once I finish the rest of the calligraphy next week.
These next few weeks are filling up with odds and ends to get taken care of! In no particular order we have to knock-out the following:
  • Ordering personalized cocktail napkins for reception
  • Finishing thank you notes for shower/wedding gifts
  • Meeting with the dress alterations guru for the final fitting
  • Finalizing the ceremony {readings, programs, vows}
  • Stocking the reception full of alcohol--we know what our guests like ;)
  • Addressing rehearsal dinner invitations and mailing those out
  • Buying items for out-of-town guest gift bags
  • Finalizing paper items {stickers, labels, signs, welcome itineraries, etc}
  • Ordering the rest of the gifts for family, flower girl/ring bearer, and groomsmen
  • Completing the song and set list for our reception band, Scat Springs
  • Meeting with Mary Alice {wedding planner extraordinaire} to hand over the reins and give her full control of "project wedding"--OH SO EXCITED!!!!

As for what I am loving today, the weather most certainly isn't one of them, but there are a few good things to perk up the forecast:
The Britney Spears "I am Femme Fatale" special comes on MTV on Sunday--
you bet your bottom dollar this girl will be watching
Mule Day is this weekend in Columbia...Lauren and Andy are going and we're hoping we can go at least for a bit depending on schedules and weather--sounds like fun to me!
I'm also loving my new hot pink running shorts via Target.
Seriously it's so about the little things ;)
