Let the good times roll . . .

Before we left for St. Louis on Friday for the Tiemann Wedding on Saturday, May 18th we mailed out all of our invitations! It was such an exciting feeling to have that daunting task checked off our to do list. It was so relieving to be able to kick back and enjoy myself for a weekend without stressing about our wedding and get to really enjoy Dan and Danielle’s – which was GORGEOUS, by the way.

As exciting as it was to get the invitations mailed out, I did not anticipate how exciting it would be to start receiving responses! OMG, you guys, it is AWESOME! I love coming home and checking the mailbox and seeing little response envelopes inside. What I love even more is opening those envelopes and finding cards that say ‘Accepts with pleasure.’ We have received five in the last two days and all of them said yes. I can’t even begin to explain how much it means that people truly want to be a part of this day. Blessed comes to mind.

What might be even more exciting, if that’s possible, is the fact that we have our engagement session booked with our A.MAZE.ING photographer, Dustin. I can’t even tell you how awesome this guy is – you’ll just have to wait and see the photos.

We also finalized all of the details for the rehearsal dinner, which will be at Fiorella’s Jack Stack BBQ’s Freight House location. This place is stupid delicious and I am looking forward to our out of town guests experiencing it.

AND the wedding is going social! The wedding has its own hashtag, #SuddrethWedding, its very own Twitter account (@SuddrethWedding), and it even has its own Facebook page, Suddreth Wedding! If you want to follow along with all of the excitement there are so many ways to connect with us. And if you use Instagram, you can find us there as well with the handle, you guessed it, Suddreth Wedding. As the wedding gets closer and people begin taking and posting photos, tweets, etc be sure to use the #SuddrethWedding hashtag so we can follow and see all of your lovely posts!

Finally, there is still a more time to vote for your choice in the Father/Daughter Dance survey – the results are really close, so make sure you get your vote in and your favorite song wins!

Phew, that was a TON of information. I was going to work on program designs, but I think I’ll have a glass of wine and catch up Grey’s Anatomy instead!

3 Months to go . . .

As of today we are just 3 short months away from the wedding! It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine months since we got engaged and started all of this planning. But, here we are!

All of the invitations have been sent out and people have started letting us know they received them! So fun. Hopefully, you are here because you saw the web address on the back of the envelope!

If you are looking for information on where to stay, or what to do while you are in town, be sure to check out the What to Do page. We teamed up with the Drury Inn in Merriam and have a block of rooms set aside. Be sure to use the group number listed on the Places to Stay page.

We’ve made lots of progress on planning and getting things checked off our to do list. We went and picked out the Groomsmen’s tuxes this evening and I can’t wait to see all of the guys dressed up! The bridesmaids have ordered their gowns and I love that they have each picked out a dress they will be comfortable in. I can’t wait to see them!

I’ve been looking up hair and makeup ideas and think I have made the final decision on a hairstyle. The makeup search continues.

Our engagement photo session is set for the second weekend in June and I am really looking forward to it!

We went to a wedding this weekend (Congratulation Dan and Danielle!) and I got lots of ideas to incorporate for our reception, and some that we were already doing!

Finally, there is still time to weigh in on the Father/Daughter dance! Be sure to check out the survey and cast your vote. The vote is really close and there is a tie going on – will your vote throw the advantage to one of the songs?! Check it out!

With the summer holidays upon us, these next three months are going to be gone before I know it!

I can’t wait!
