How I’ve been feeling lately——–(The Scream by Edvard Munch)
The only things that soothe me are Nickel Creek and the sweet texts my fiance sends me.
I have been sooooooooo stressed the past couple weeks – it’s midterm week(s) at WVU. Some classes have midterms before, and the others have it during the actual week. I’ve had projects due, research to complete, and meetings to attend and to top it all off, this Friday it will be exactly 3 months before my wedding [insert scream now]. Granted I have almost everything done and paid for, its the little details that can kill ya. So that’s the reason it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry!
I recently sent out my save-the-dates which were from Magnetstreet Weddings, and obviously they were magnets – however they have other items as well. Here’s what it looks like, but I tweaked a few things on the colors:
Disclaimer that should have been on the website: when you try to send these save-the-dates through the mail, technically they aren’t letters because letters are paper. The post office considers them parcels, which cost $1.20, and we sent about 105 save-the-dates, (you guys can do the math!). We learned that at the first post office we went to – thankfully, the second one we went to didn’t seem to notice the difference. So we managed to send them without a hitch. I love getting comments on how pretty they came out from my guests!
I relinquished my planning duties of my bridal shower to my Mom and my sister (thank goodness!) and those invitations have been sent out, or so they tell me. I’m just kidding, I am so grateful that they took that stress off my back. We were having trouble finding a venue that worked for both my family and my fiance’s family. We live about 40 minutes away from each other, so we were trying to find something accommodating yet pretty at the same time. We found this one venue, Linganore Winery, which is a small, family owned winery off interstate 70, (it’s practically in the center between our 2 endpoints).
It was a beautiful venue, which was perfect for us and they included a private wine tour with wine tasting for the our party. The only thing is, that they didn’t provide catering. So on top of the rental rate, we would have had to pay for catering too and we weren’t willing to pay that much for the bridal shower. The next place we checked out and what we decided to go for was Turf Valley golf resort. It’s much closer to my house but it’s also right off the interstate, so it’s easy to get to.
I’ve been to Turf Valley once or twice and the food was pretty good and so were the views. It was a popular place for people from my high school to work at, so at the time I knew a lot of people who worked there. I have yet to see the bridal shower invites but when I get it, I’ll scan it and post it on here.
Here’s a cute wedding video to keep you all busy:
