So much progress!

I've been a busy bee.

My dad and I took a trip to Planet Smoothie and talked with the owner, who is lovely, by the way. We booked the smoothies for the wedding! I am so excited. She's going to bring 200 smoothies (I'm going to pick a couple of flavors). AND she's throwing in regular sized smoothies for the wedding party in whatever flavor we want. Hellllloooooo Screamsicle (my absolute favorite)! So you should be able to sip on a smoothie and eat some pop corn while you watch Josh and I say our vows. How cool is that?

Also, I have our invitations finally! I am so happy with them. They're so pretty and exactly what I wanted.

I finally got them all stuffed in envelopes and I have addressed almost 10 of them. I know that sounds pathetic...but Lauren (my maid of honor) is coming over Thursday night to help me address them. So if all goes well, I will be mailing them on either Friday or Saturday! I'm so ready for everyone to get them.

Finally, I have been stockpiling the newspaper since December and I finally did a practice run with some of them. They make beautiful paper fans! I'm really happy with them. 

I'm wanting to hang a TON of them behind us on the stage. So it will look like a wall of paper fans behind us. I'm thinking of spray painting some of them yellow. And I bought some card stock to cut out flowers and circles for the centers.

I also worked out a game plan for the cake with Carla. 
Basically a cake with 4 regular sized layers and flowers like these.

I'm not sure what color I want the fondant to be yet...gray, white, or yellow. I know that you're thinking this cake is going to be pretty amazing...but the best part isn't even the decoration. The cake is going to be FUNFETTI! The best ever.

So things are starting to come together! It feels good. It's only 87 days away! I can't wait. I'm going to marry the coolest guy on the planet. I'm so lucky.

save the dates, invitations, wedding soundtracks, and honeymoons...woo!

Well, I have save the dates printed. Since they're postcards I thought it would be sweet and personal if I wrote a little note on each of them and hand addressed them. Now that I've gone through 55 of them, I still think it's sweet and personal but OMG I have a lot left to go.

I also got a paper proof of our invitations today. They look awesome! I'm so excited :-). Things are coming together.

We have also finished compiling our Wedding Soundtrack. And just for fun I'm going to post the list of songs that we've chosen. :-) They're not your typical love songs. But let's just say they all have something to do with relationships. It's actually a really good playlist I've listened to it in my car and it plays well.

2. Feel Like Makin' Love - Bad Company
3. Marry You - BB King and Eric Clapton
4. She Does - Collective Soul
5. Better Together - Jack Johnson
6. Faithfully - Journey
7. Can't Take My Eyes Off of You - Muse

I'm so excited! I already booked our honeymoon resort and plane tickets :-). We're staying at the Royal in Cancun for 5 nights and 4 days. I CAN NOT WAIT!!! It is going to be the best! Only 169 days left! WOOOHOOO!
