Wedding Wednesday - 8 Months!

Yesterday marked 8 months until we say I do!

Things on the agenda for this month: 

~Schedule our next premartial session at the church with the wedding director
*we had our first one on Saturday and it went really well! The next one we'll go over our "test" we took :)

~Schedule a meeting with the Deacon doing our church ceremony to go over our ceremony readings and vows
*We're having a very very small church ceremony to do the Catholic/Legal thing in the states before we leave

~Shop for a white dress for our church ceremony
*I'm thinking short and lace with my teal wedding shoes ;) 

~Schedule my first dress fitting
*They told me I have to do this very far in advance or they book up! CRAZY!

~Ask John's groomsmen to be in the wedding 
*yes he still hasn't done this

~Shop for John's suit 
*We're thinking a tan suit, whit shirt and pink/teal tie

~Shop for the groomsmens ties 
*they will match John's tie and will be part of their groomsmen gifts

~Decide on shower/bachelorette party dates 
*this is tough because all 3 of my bridesmaids live out of town. We're going to do a Mexican Fiesta theme for the couples shower ;) Margaritas included!

~Start working on the must play song list for the DJ
*this is gradually getting done little by little 

~Start thinking about all the extra music we need for the ceremony and reception 
*I'm going completely non-traditional on the ceremony music. No Canon in D or Wedding March for me ;)

And the biggest thing... 

~Decide on our invitations! 
*I haven't been able to find one that I'm truly in love with so I have a feeling after searching Etsy I'll end up having one designed mixing and matching different things that I like.
