Well, tonight was September 19th. Exactly 2 months til I walk down the isle and become Mrs. Bishop. Lots of emotions come to the surface when I think about that day and what its going to be like. I have most of the MAJOR details hammered out. We have the Ceremony & After Ceremony Celebration site locked down. All the dresses have been ordered. Still gotta help Paul pick out a suit for the big day and working on getting in touch w/a couple of far flung invitees, but all those close to us have been informed and I am working on finalizing the wording for the invitations. Had planned on sending them out the end of this month but its looking like it may not happen til early next month. Going to have our engagement photos taken this coming Tuesday and I'm really looking forward to that! Just have to decide what to wear, lol! Then I'll have a couple do-it-myself projects to keep me busy once I have the pictures printed, lol!
Have to make an appointment next month to start the Pre-Marital Counseling at our church and meet w/the Pastor who will be performing our ceremony so we can discuss what we would like it to include. Gotta go downtown to file for a marriage license and make an appointment w/my seamstress for the final dress fitting. Have to finalize the menu for our "After Ceremony Dinner Party" and decide if I really wanna make all the cupcakes or just get store bought ones. The original plan was to serve different flavors of cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake. I may be crafty, but I'm not a big baker.
I'm trying not to stress about all there is to do and enjoy all that I can about the process but some days that's more difficult than others. Oh, well...it will all be over in just under 2 months and then I'll be able to relax, LOL!!!
