MEP to MEC: Five Months to Go!

The first thing my dad said to me yesterday morning was “Five months from today, I walk you down the aisle”. I cannot believe that we are closer to the wedding than to the date that we got engaged. The past seven months have flown by so quickly, and I’m doing my best to savor the rest of our engagement. As bittersweet as it seems, I keep reminding myself that this isn’t an end; it is the beginning of a beautiful lifetime together.

Completed in January:

  • Mailed our Save the Dates
  • Met with three florists
  • Completed two cake tastings
  • Designed suits for the gents
  • Jody got sized and ordered his suit
  • Decided on our Honeymoon location
  • Made a list of the big ‘to do’s’ that we still have to complete
  • Decided how to honor Peru in our wedding
  • Scheduled our first marriage counseling session
  • Finished our wedding website (Friends, do not let this take you five months to complete like it did for me. So not that important!)
  • Printed my cake inspiration board and floral design inspiration board

Need to Complete in February:

  • Book our cake baker
  • Book our Honeymoon
  • Book our florist
  • Decide on hair and makeup vendor
  • Pick the specialty cocktail
  • Decide on songs for ceremony
  • Book our wedding night hotel
  • Start a workout program to tone up
  • Complete a couples’ devotional with Jody
  • Order invitations
