When we first got engaged, WAY back in early November – ha!, I signed up to be a registered user for theknot.com and weddingwire.com, among other wedding sites. As you get more information about when & where you are getting married, you start adding that to your profile and they start sending you planning emails to help the preparation process. Well, since our engagement is about 6 months shorter than the average, they are sending me emails just about EVERYDAY with a new planning milestone I should be completing. Nothing like a little pressure!
Today I got an email from TheKnot saying “you only have 4 months to go”, with all of these recommended items you should check off your list at the 4 month mark. But I was literally stopped in my tracks by the ‘4 months to go’ subject line. Can you believe it, 4 months until Joe and I get married on a beach in Jamaica – whoa! How amazing is that? I am so excited, not only to get married to Joe, but to have some of our closest friends and family with us on our special day. Fun in the sun, on the beach – with a few umbrella drinks in Jamaica – is guaranteed to be a great time. 🙂
So what have we done so far in the few short weeks since we decided when & where to get married?
- Signed our hotel contract
- Contracted with a destination wedding travel planner
- Booked our travel
- Built our website
- Sent our e-mail save the dates
- Ordered all the ‘stuff’ for making our invitations
- Scheduled dress shopping for this weekend on Saturday
- Assembling invitations on Sunday this weekend
- Found a photographer in Montego Bay
- Found bakery in Montego Bay for our cake
- Found a florist in Montego Bay
So what is left on the list, ohhhh man…so much stuff, I don’t even want to bore you with the details. Suffice it to say, I have a full time job all day at HTC and then another full time job each night managing wedding details – ahhh!
4 months to blissfulness in paradise…-N
