- Hired a florist.
- Found suits for the guys.It's difficult to see in the picture but it's a charcoal suit with little tiny squares (I'm told that's called hammerhead, which means exactly ZERO to me) woven through. Up close it has a bit of texture. It's pretty snazzy. We got them from Jos A. Bank for $200 each (6 suits) and they are going to ship them for no cost to us to the local stores for each of our groomsmen (scattered in 4 different states- VA, MO, FL, and CO) which is nice.
- All my bridesmaids have ordered their dresses. My sister's should be in any day! Good work ladies! Can't wait to have some of those pics to share with you.
- Ordered our Ketubah
A Ketubah is a Jewish marriage contract. Traditionally it's like a prenup which protected the bride from being destitute in case of divorce, since women had no prospects and no property in those days. It's actually extremely forward thinking for it's time. However, ours doesn't have the traditional legal language which is required for a wedding between two Jews, we chose instead an interfaith text that is basically a restatement of our vows. We will sign it during the ceremony, along with 2 witnesses. I'm preparing a whole post on our Ketubah, coming soon.
- Approved our invitations
The proofs came Friday. Not gonna give anything away there because I want it to be a surprise for our guests. But they are BEAUTIFUL!
- Took Dan ring shopping.
My ring was ordered custom to match my curvy engagement ring so that's checked off. But Dan is still looking, he wants some funky metal like Tungsten Carbide so we went around to different jewelry stores so he could try some on and see what's out there. No decisions made yet.
I don't know if I mentioned, but I'm doing my own makeup. This is surprising- or perhaps completely unsurprising- if you know me, since I regularly wear no makeup. Literally on my face 99% of the time is untinted SPF 30 moisturizer. And that's it. If I get "dressed up" it's nude-ish shimmer eyeshadow, mascara, and perhaps lipstick. So for that reason, I don't want too much makeup on during my wedding and doing my own gives me control over that. But... I don't really know much about doing makeup. So my plan is to go to Sephora and be like "make up my face for my wedding." Then buy some of the stuff they use and practice. And practice, practice, practice. Item #1, learn how to put on eyeliner. Seriously. It seems dangerous, pointy things next to your eye, and I've never done it. But I have heard its kinda a requirement for wedding makeup. So, now's the time to learn!
