Getting Married NEXT Month!!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , at 9:02 am by Molly

So we can now say “We are getting married NEXT month!!”


Things are really coming together nicely.  I’ve spent the past week getting in touch with our vendors and finalizing the details.  I’ve been making place cards as our RSVPs roll in (still waiting on around 48 or so) so we are right on top of things.

I decided to add more DIY projects onto the list in the past month.  We now have menus for the tables as well as a card box made by yours truly.  The card box is not entirely finished but will be soon.

Last weekend I went to have the seamstress look at my dress.  She will be shortening the straps and putting in a little bustle so my tiny train doesn’t get stepped on at the reception.  YAY!

Next week Mitch and I are going to take a trip to the Brookline Town Clerk’s office and apply for our marriage license! We found out that Brookline charges $35 as opposed to Boston’s $50 and they are open until 8pm on Thursdays, where Boston is only open 9am-4pm (closed on Wednesdays). No contest there.

Today is also a big day for Mitch as I have ordered him his FIRST pair of flip flops for the honeymoon! Marriage is already changing him. 🙂

That’s all the updates I have for now.  We are taking a NON wedding related weekend and heading up to Maine. Much needed break.

More to come!!

42 Days to go!

Small Hiccups have occurred…

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , at 10:50 am by Molly

Things have been going very smooth so far in the planning and executing of this upcoming wedding day. That is until now.  Granted what I’m about to complain and gripe about in the grand scheme of things is not a huge deal and most likely will be worked out in the near future, however, I can now see where people get stressed out with this stuff. I am only borderline stressed and only if these things are not resolved will I actually get stressed.

We mailed our invitations on Friday, July 11th.  This was one day away from being 2 months to the day before the wedding.  Giving ample time for them to arrive and for the RSVPs to be returned by our date of August 15th.  Now I know this is early to be freaking out, however my parents who live an hour and a half away from me and who always get any mail I send them next day STILL have not received their invitation! Mitch and I actually joked that we should say we had to cut the guest list and they got cut. HA! I have heard from multiple people that they received their invitations including Melanie, one of my California Bridesmaids (yes it made it there in 3 days). Seriously. WTF?  I’m not sure if other guests in my hometown are receiving theirs (if anyone there wants to chime in and let me know that would be awesome) but it seems very odd.

So against my previous decision to not post any pictures of the invites until they were received I am about to show you the front of the invitation envelope.  This is what to be on the look out for! (click image to enlarge)

If you see any of these laying in a gutter somewhere please return them to me.

Second hiccup issue:  I had the Wachusett Village Inn send over the list of rooms that have been booked already for the night of the wedding.  We added a few more since I believe there are people that still need to book a room.  Anyway, as I look closer I notice that the suite for the bride and groom that is included in our package has the wrong dates! It has us arriving on the 13th of September (the day AFTER our wedding) and leaving on the 14th (When we will be in Punta Cana on our Honeymoon!) siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh.  They also had an extra night down for one of our guests when they had requested only one night.  I contacted our coordinator there and hopefully they were just simple typing mistakes that can be easily rectified, but geez!  Wouldn’t you think that when booking a room for the night of someone’s wedding, for the bride and groom no less, that you would get the date right?

This is how people get stressed out about wedding planning.
