Well, as of right now – we have our florist, photographer, and my dress came in! Hooray! It feels SO MUCH BETTER knowing that the biggest items on our list are taken care of. I also love knowing that whenever I want to, I can go to the fiance’s parents house and try on my dress and whatnot…which reminds me my mom said I should cover the dress in a sheet instead of keeping it in the garment bag it was given to me in. It is SO PRETTY. I can hardly wait to wear it! It almost makes me forget why I’m wearing such a pretty dress in the first place. :) Just kidding dude.

We decided to go with Molly’s Flower Studio and Stephen Geffre for our florist and photographer, respectively. I’m really looking forward to working with both of them. Stephen includes an engagement session in his package…but that will have to wait until my lovely mouth jewelry (read: braces) come off in a few months.

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll just go back to working (sort of) and trolling’s discussion boards (more likely).

Getting there…

So, the lovely Miss Angie accompanied me to another florist appointment last night. We had to drive down Broadway “over north.” After dark. (For the non-Minneapolitans – that’s in da ghetto.) Thankfully there were no drive-bys so we’re okay. But anyway…so hard to decide! Both florists I’ve met with have great ideas – but I guess it’ll come down to price in the end. I like them both! Bah!

Tonight we’re meeting with our first photographer…of the potential 5 we’ll be meeting with. As soon as these two things are out of the way I’m going to feel so much better! (I’m not losing as much sleep anymore.)

losing sleep.

So, I slept like crap this morning because I kept trying to remember all the things I should be getting done for this wedding. More recently trying to get crap together to mail the save the dates.

Why is wedding planning so stressful?

And more importantly, everyone on is way more into this than I am. These girls have like – e-scrapbooks of things that they like from hairstyles to flowers to “memory tables” – I can’t handle it. Do you people have jobs?!

Tick a couple off the list…

Well, after meeting with Susan last night, I think we’ve got our woman. I mentioned her before – and she’s definitely a perfect fit for us. we pretty much will get to hand craft our ceremony. And she’s a bargain compared to some of the other officiants – sold! Aside from that – we also decided to go with Instant Request as our DJs. everything seems to be falling in place for the big details! Tomorrow morning – our first cake tasting. We’ll see how that goes as well. I’m not in as big of a rush for that, but it should be interesting. I hope I can get hungry for cake at 9am.

Ceremonies and Beer

This is far too entertaining not to share with everyone. I’ve been emailing back and forth with a woman about officiating our ceremony. I found her online at When I asked her about when we could schedule a meeting, the Reverend suggested we meet at a place in NE Minneapolis called Gasthof’s. For those not familiar…this tends to be a rowdy German bar/restaurant. In the words of the fiance, this is handy – we can “Have a beer, snuff shot and book our minister.” Should I be concerned? Or elated? I’m not sure – I’m leaning towards elated. :) Anyway, we’ll see what happens next Thursday night when we meet her there. :) Tonight – 7pm – meeting with potential DJ. This should be interesting!
