Sorry it has been a while since the last update, we have been super busy. The week after the bridal shower we left to go to Lake Geneva/Chicago with Erik’s family. We had a wonderfully relaxing week, thank you to Aunt Sue and Uncle Kevin for their hospitality. We had so much fun it was sad to come back, but it had to be done!
As soon as we returned to Virginia I was back in the swing of wedding planning. One of the first things I did was order our wedding cake, and let me tell you this cake is going to be one to remember. The only setback with the cake is that we have to arrange for someone to pick it up the day of the wedding. We have 180 people coming to the wedding surely someone will be able to go pick up the cake right??
I do not know what time the rehearsal is going to be but the rehearsal dinner is going to be at Fort Hunt Park in Alexandria at 3pm. This park is right near the GW parkway and overlooks the Potomac River. It should be a really nice setting for a sweet summer BBQ! Depending on the church we will either be having the rehearsal before the BBQ at around noon or after, let’s say around 6. I will post all the details about the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner/BBQ when I get confirmation from the church.
I had my trial hair appointment this past Saturday and I loved it. Now to find a make-up artist who will come to the church, that is the key. I have also started some preliminary seating charts for the reception, if you have any special requests please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate them.
YAY.. only 44 more days!!!!!
