I'm crossing my fingers that I wake up totally healthy tomorrow because I have a full day of fun ahead.
My mom and I are exchanging spa pedicures Saturday morning! Of all the things I need/want, at the top of my list this year is literally having time to spend with others - a clear sign of growing up. After a little pampering, we'll be jumping into wedding mode for...
Wedding dress shopping!
This will be my first time trying on dresses and honestly, I have no idea of what I want so I'm just going with an open mind.
We're going to a few places near Eugene and if I don't have any luck, will likely head to Portland in January for more wedding dress fun. Not gonna lie, I'm kind of excited to start seeing all my visions turn into reality, but the big decisions are extremely tough to make. But like the man, I hope the dress clearly stands out as "The One."
During this whole process, I'm trying to occasionally remind myself that this only happens once. Yeah, it's a lot of stress, but I get to plan this celebration for 100 of our closest family and friends. No big deal.
Decisions I'll likely be making in the next few weeks:
- choosing our caterer
- scheduling engagement photos
- setting up wedding website
- hotel room block
Decisions I'm leaving up to the manfriend:
- Choosing a DJ (or asking one of our family members/friends)
- Picking out his suit/tux
In a cold induced fog, I maintained my appointment for a haircut and highlights yesterday evening. Not the most relaxing 90 min of my life, but my hair is fresh and a bit... lighter.
This was only my second time ever highlighting my hair. The first time was right before Kyle and Sabrina's wedding, but it was so subtle that no one noticed. This time, I'm a bit blonder and still not sure if I like it. BUT, it' just hair.
This smile must be the head cold talking.
In other news, snuggly clothes are pretty much the best thing about being sick.
Oh and I've completely given into this cold. No exercise other than a 15 min dog walk each day and Thursday morning was spent watching Love Actually. Again, body, I GET IT. I should slow down a bit more often.
Any suggestions on other great wedding planning tasks for the groom-to-be? Your favorite details of weddings you've attended or your own?
