Dana and I have had 10 days to plan our wedding so far. Here’s where we’re at:
— The date is finalized for July 22, 2006.
— The church facility is secured for that date.
— The reception area is secured.
— Wedding reception arrangements are made.
— Decorating ideas are complete and already underway.
— Dana’s uncle committed to performing the ceremony.
— The wedding party is finalized.
— Wedding colors are picked out.
— Bride’s Maid dresses have been selected and purchased.
— Dana has her wedding dress selected and paid for.
— Invitations are ordered.
— Wedding bands are narrowed to two choices.
— We had our first pre-marital counseling session with our pastor.
— I’ve secured two ushers and will talk to two others tomorrow.
— The honeymoon location is selected. We’ll try to reserve it tomorrow. If it’s already booked, we’ll go with our second choice.
— The rehearsal dinner is down to two options and will be finalized tomorrow.
— Tomorrow we’ll also create our registry at Target and pick out a tux for me and the groomsmen.
— Oh, and Dana has a lingerie party scheduled already, too!
Yes, all this in 10 days (11 days including tomorrow’s plans). It’s amazing how easily everything is falling into place for us. Dana’s not one of those girls who had her wedding planned out at age 12 either. Most of this is from scratch. We’re blessed to have families who are really stepping up to the plate and doing a lot to help, too. The support and quick responses have been great.
Tonight I gave my credit card info to Dana. Now THAT’S commitment!
