Wedding Update: Part IV

Only 65 more days until our wedding!! The past couple months have been pretty uneventful as far as wedding planning goes. We're kind of just waiting for the week of so we can start making all of our decor ideas come to life but I do have a few updates to share:
  • Tuxes
    • We picked out tuxes! The little shop we are getting them from even ordered a sample for Michael to try on so I could make sure that I liked it. I'm excited to see how they look with the bridesmaid dresses.
  • Invitations
    • Invitations are in the mail! My mom made ALL of about impressive. I love how they turned out!
  • Pizza Truck
    • We got a pizza truck! Manzo's Wood-Fired Pizza truck is going to make an appearance at the end of our reception and I am SO excited about it.
  • Alcohol
    • Alcohol has been ordered. And gosh there's a lot of it! We had a hard time deciding how much beer/liquor to get so we decided that it was better to have too much than not enough. Luckily, my dad knows someone who works for a liquor distributor so they are hooking us up with a discount.
  • Wedding Bands
    • Michael's wedding band came in last week. He had my ring and band designed at Randy's Jewelry and they were so helpful that I decided to get his band through them as well. It turned out great!
  • Dress Fitting
    • I had my first dress fitting a few weeks ago and it went well. They had to alter a lot in the bust but the rest pretty much fit perfectly. Since my hair and makeup trials are this Saturday, we figured it'd be a perfect time to schedule my second dress fitting as well. It'll be fun to see how the look comes together!
  • Bridal Party Gifts
    • My bridesmaid gifts have been purchased and Michael has an idea for the groomsmen as well. I'm glad to have that one checked off the list. 
  • Outdoor Lights
    • Michael's had their outdoor lights on sale so I bought a bunch of these lights. They're so fun and perfect for an outdoor reception. I'm so eager to see how the reception decor turns out. 
Stay tuned for updates on Etsy purchases, bridal showers, and other fun wedding stuff!
