I also have a photo booth rented...this will be the the wedding favors and I really hope that this will be a fun thing that will cross generations. I can really see family and friends that are my age enjoying this idea, but I can also see family and friends that are my parents' age enjoying this too. I'll keep my fingers crossed! So far in the wedding this is the one thing I've just HAD to have.
I purchased my dress about a month ago and this past weekend my future mother-in-law, Donna, was in town and I took her to see it. I was a little nervous because although my mom and bridesmaids (minus David's sister) all loved it, I really wanted Donna to like it as well. There was no need to worry because she l-o-v-ed it! Phew! We went ahead and brought it home from the bridal shop because my mom is considering making the few alterations herself. That and the bridal shop is moving...which makes my mom and my dad nervous. They've both helped pay for this and both of them have heard stories of bridal shops going out of business and brides being left high and dry with no refund and no dress. Both of my parents are confident in this particular bridal shop...but, also don't want to take any chances. So! The dress is now hanging in a safe, undisclosed place! No peeking by anyone outside of the bridal party and mom's!
In addition to my dress, I have picked out the flower girl/train holder dresses and, in fact, my train holder just got hers in on Saturday! She's even tried it on and it looks so cute! Her mom, my matron of honor, ordered the dress and shoes with a little room to grow and all looks good. I can't wait to see how they all look on the big day!
Next, of course, would be the bridesmaid dresses...I have a pretty good idea what dresses I'm going to use, but I'm not 100% sure yet. So, we'll just have to see on those.
Next...the cake. I have already been to one tasting and have another scheduled for this week. The one for this week is actually the baker that my wedding site typically uses and I've heard very good feedback from girls that I know who have been married there before. Wish me luck on this decision because I really liked the first baker as well!
Lastly, I am currently considering the florist. My dad actual had a connection in this department and I am waiting on feedback from her regarding price.
Overall, the wedding planning is going pretty smoothly and Donna told me she's having a lot of positive feedback on David's side of the family as well. There are already a couple groups of family members that are planning on coming from long distances that Donna was unsure of before. It's all very exciting and been a lot fun with only mild stress to date!
