Going to the Chapel...

First things future sister-in-law (FSIL) is a genius! She just got her ACT scores back and she got a 34 out of 36. Ridiculous! FSIL is now basically garunteed entrance and scholarship to any school she wants to go to. Seeing as she one day wants to work for NASA, this is a very good thing. She's planning on going to Florida Tech for astro-freaking-physics. Congrats FSIL.

Now on to wedding details. It's getting closer. 2 months and 5 days. Ah!

Mom and I went wedding shopping on Saturday. We got the rest of the wedding favors. Our unity candle is this really neat floating candle set and we were able to find 75 single floating candles to use as favors. I think we all know by now that I'm going to have more than 75 guests so we had to find something for everyone else. So we got some squatty votives and candles to put in each votive. So every table will have an arrangement of favors. A pick and choose, if you will.

We also found flowers, yay! Dahlia's and blush roses. Unfortunately the store we found them in only has about half of what we need. You should have seen mom and I trying to figure out how many people needed boutonnières and corsages. The owner tried calling the manufacturer yesterday and got their voice mail. Hopefully they will call back with the great news that they can get the rest to us. I'd really like to get these flowers from this establishment b/c it's smaller and I'd prefer helping out the little guys.

We also got stuff for the rehearsal dinner. Green gingham place mats on white tablecloths with a plant in the middle that will also have an assortment of sparklers planted in them. I figured that since my wedding is so close to Labor Day, we should have sparklers. And better to have them outside at the rehearsal dinner than inside at the hotel reception room...I shudder to think what some of our friends would try to do :)

So everything is right on schedule. My dad is planning on printing up the invitations this afternoon, so maybe we'll be able to put them in the mail on our way out of town to the beach (!) on Saturday.

ALSO: Today fiance and I have been together for 17 months. Happy month-a-versary sweetie!

Ah, Happy 17 month anniversary!

Sounds like everything's right on track. Candles are nice. I love candles. The dahlias and blush roses are a good choice. The sparklers are a nice quirky touch :)
