I can’t believe I’ll be a married woman in LESS than one month! (I missed documenting the official one month mark yesterday because I was busy wedding crafting.)
Last weekend was a whirlwind of wedding activities: hair and makeup trials, dress fitting, and meetings with our coordinator, our caterer, and our photographer. In two weeks, we’ll return to York for my final dress fitting and (hopefully) a meeting with our DJ. This is what happens when both the bride and groom live out of town — weekends are extremely busy!
I must say that I was reminded last weekend why we hired professionals. Each vendor asked questions we hadn’t considered: Who will walk the mothers down the aisle? Do we want to do a “dollar dance?” Who will take the centerpieces at the end of the night?
And offered useful tidbits of advice: Ask someone other than a groomsman to drive the golf cart. Ask a family member to be a liaison to the photographer. Use bottled beer for the cocktail hour and kegs for the reception.
And eased our minds: My hair and makeup will not be overdone. Our photographer will scout the site the day before the wedding. Our coordinator will decorate and display all of our DIY projects.
Whew! I’m glad such details and logistics are now in the hands of our vendors — our very competent vendors.
Did you get any surprise questions at your final meetings?
