Less than 150 days to go now to our big day. There's still several things left to sort or finalise but a large part of the planning is sorted, thanks to Rachel.
And I will hopefully have a new site up soon dedicated to the two of us, where we can put photos we have taken and for the next 5 months provide a portal to planning.
This week we have been looking at wedding invitations, we got two samples sent to us and another two to Rach's mom. I'll see the latter pair on Sunday as Rach is home in Ireland this wknd. Then we can make a final decision. Though there is a favourite from last nights pair.
Then the big task is the list itself, that is no small task at all, and with two large families the table plan closer to the day should be good fun. Though the hardest part is deciding what friends to invite given the size of our families.
Rachel sorted her dress months ago, as well as the bridesmaids. So myself and my brother had better get our act together and sort the suits. I know what the boss wants, just need to get measured I suppose.
My stag also needs finalising, but a firm plan is in place. Just need to settle on the wknd and work out how many can make it.
The last time Rachel was home, she talked to the photographer, so we know what we want there. It's the same guy they her sister used and those photos were lovely, so very happy there. Other areas like florist are booked but not finalised. Whilst the hairdresser & makeup, Rach has planned, I believe there will be a practice run through.
The cake is being baked by Rach's auntie B, her godmother. Since the family home is so close to the church and not far to the hotel, I believe an uncle is driving her. And Alan, Rach's brother has offered to make a video of the wedding. These are a lot more than small comforts to have help with, and we are very grateful.
But everything isn't sorted, still need to decide on favours and our honeymoon amongst other things, but that is enough of an update for today.
