Unfortuntely Jeff had to go back to Wake today for football, it was a very sad day, but happy at the same time as this is the last time will be apart. But next time he is back in Florida it will be wedding time. Hard to believe it has gone by so fast, we have already been engaged over a year.
With that said we had an extremely busy week. I wanted to try to get as much in as possible so he could have some say in the little things. Tuesday we went for our food tasting at the University Club along with both of my parents. We have decided to do stations for dinner so it is more of a party and noone is sitting down for a long amount of time waiting for a plated meal. We have chose some really fun food that will be presented in different ways. We are really excited as food was so important to us. We dropped by the church and dropped off our marriage counseling certificate so that is done with.
We went and checked out the place for the rehearsal dinner, Jeff had not seen it before and I wanted to get his approval. It is apart of the Jacksonville Historical Society, Old St. Andrews church. It is a beautiful old church that is rented out for parties now and you can bring in your own food and booze. This was just what we wanted especially since it is so close to our church where the ceremony will be held. We are having more of a formal reception so we wanted our rehearsal to just be laid back and fun.
We are having someone design all of our stationary and we picked out the designs for our menu cards, programs, invitations, rehearsal invites and so forth. So that was a big check. I also picked out my bridesmaid luncheon invites, which i was so excited about I am having a themed luncheon Kentucky derby style, we will all be wearing big hats and have sort of an afternoon tea at an awesome place in Riverside,so i was so excited to come across this invitations that worked perfectly with my theme
I just happened to be on a little shopping trip and came across an amazing BCBG dress. I could not walk by so I went and tried it on and it was perfect. So I bought it for my rehearsal dinner dress. I can not wait to wear it, now I just have to find shoes to go with it.
Things are starting to come together as I am trying to not have to worry about the main things since when football season starts I am on the road every weekend. So I wanted to get as much done as possible in the next month or two. The wedding will be here before you know it.
Lastly, I wanted to say Happy Birthday to my Dad today. He is amazing and wanted to wish him a wonderful birthday. Hope everyone had a great fourth of july weekend.
