Our shower was last weekend. It was a perfect day to spend with friends and family. I am so grateful for everyone who made the trip! Even Diana from Ecuador was there!! :) Alec, my mom and all the family that helped did a great job. I don't have any of the pics, but if I get some I will post them. We had a couples shower so Dave got to be involved too. I loved it. It was a wine theme which I loved. Dave picked the beer for the guys so we had some Sam Adams too. Everything was really great!
I had my first dress fitting yesterday! Getting it hemmed slightly, bustle added, and some taken in around the waist. It was fun to put it on and see it being tailored to me. Now it really is MY dress! :) I am also working on shower thank you cards when I am not at work. Well, I have to go back to work. More updates to come. Next event: Bachlorette party! :)

Here we are almost to the 3 month mark. Wedding to dos will start picking up soon. MOB and I finished the invitations this week. They were a lot of work! I have to bring them to the post office next week and get them out, so if you got a save the date, check your mail in the next couple weeks for our lovely handcrafted invites! :) Dave's birthday is today so we are having a party tomorrow. Next weekend is the shower! I am excited for both events. I have to call my hairdresser and make my practice hair appointment! I keep forgetting to do that. Wedding night hotel room has been booked, and I checked on the reservations. There should be plenty for anyone who wants to stay Fri or Sat night. I think that is it for now, more updates in the weeks to come! Everyone enjoy the nice weather this weekend! :)

Dave and I had a good time playing in the mountains last week and came back with a million bug bites. This week my MOH picked up the bridesmaids dresses. There was a minor glitch with one of them having a a different color sash but we ironed it out with her wearing the different one :) I feel like I should be doing more to prepare for the wedding, but there isn't a whole lot to do at this time. I need to start working out and firming up for those honeymoon pics! haha. I started a new job at work so the next 4 months will be stressful... good... but def stressful! Shower is in just over 3 weeks. Super excited about that! :)

We finally figured out how we want the invitations this weekend! That was a lot of work, but now we just have to make them, address them, and send them out! We also have to start thinking about all the music during the wedding. So many different songs to pick and to choose from! I didn't think the music would be this hard. The bridesmaids dresses are in! I hope they fit everyone. I can't wait to see them all together :) That is all for now, Dave and I are going to vacation with my family next week so there probably won't be any wedding posts for a few weeks. LOVE that it's finally summer! :)

Shower invites were sent yesterday by MOB. Let the festivities begin! :) I am so excited to start celebrating our marriage. Tomorrow I am going to Strongsville to see my dress. It finally came in and I can't wait to try it on again! I have some accessories I want to bring to make sure it all goes together like it does in my head. I still have to get a gift for the ring bearer, what do you get a little boy? Does it need to be something he has forever? What would he even be interested in that would be a keepsake? Two weekends ago Dave and I went to the Posendek wedding in Columbus. It was a lot of fun. We loved dressing up in the photo booth, and the food was great. I hope our food is that good! It was served family style which was a lot of fun too. I'm sure I will be busy with wedding stuff and have more interesting posts as it gets closer, but it has been slow for now!
