I feel like I’ve started nearly every entry the same way: “sorry”. I’ve been neglecting the blog and for that I apologize. However- we have actually been able to get a few things done!
A few weeks ago, my bridesmaid Caroline met Andrew and I out in Amherst and took our engagement pictures. We have only seen a few so far, but I am loving them already. Here are a few of my favorites:
Caroline and Paper + Frame did a great job setting everything up and making us feel comfortable. I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures!!
This past weekend I had the worst cold I’ve had in years. Probably ever. I’m relieved to be semi-over it.
Earlier today Drew, my mom and I met with Jennifer at CMS Flora in Bourne and talked flowers. She was able take all the pictures and descriptions I’ve been sending her over the past few weeks and visualize what we want. I feel so relieved to have the flowers under control. She talked to us about the centerpieces, the bridesmaids bouquets, my bouquet, the groomsmen and groom’s boutonnieres, corsages, and church flowers. And best of all- we came in under budget. PUMPED. Its so important to find a place that will actually sit and talk with you…I’ve read that a lot of places will just have you fill out a questionnaire 8 months before your wedding and you don’t hear from them until the day of. Ugh, I can feel my anxiety rising just thinking about it.
We also booked the hotel room where I will be staying the night before the wedding, getting ready the morning of, and where we will be staying the wedding night. The Flying Bridge Restaurant is owned by the Coonamesset Inn in Falmouth which is gorg. I was actually a contender for the reception. They gave us a 10% discount (hollaaaa) since we are using one of their restaurants for the reception. The wedding suite is HUUUUGE and so cute inside. The perfect amount of room for myself and the bridesmaids to get ready and for getting pictures taken.
I feel like we’ve made a lot of progress in the past few weeks. Its all little things & baby steps, but its going to help so much knowing that they are out of the way come crunch time. Only 8 more months to go! (i’m throwing up right now).
Until next time…hopefully sooner than later!
