the wedding seems so much more real now. we received our first wedding present last week. nana, joe’s grandmother, bought us eight settings of our casual china. i’m so excited! it’s really pretty. in a few weeks we’ll be picking up my parents’ china cabinet, which they don’t use anymore. hopefully we’ll be getting our formal china as well. 🙂
now that rachel’s wedding is over, the focus is all on us now. i spent some time after the wedding on saturday night talking with my flower girl’s mother about her dress and how she’s going to do her hair. she’s really cute. i can’t wait to see her in the dress i picked out. all of joe’s relatives were asking us about our wedding and telling us they’re marking the date in their calendars. it’s making me even more excited!
and yesterday we bought our baskets for the yarmulkes and programs. i love them. i also bought white and royal blue ribbons to decorate them with. now the next step is to sit down with the people at the chapel and give them our menu. we also still need to meet with our photographer and d.j. man, five months is going to go by so fast!
