It’s been a wonderful and magical year so far, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job – but I can officially say I will have my nights and weekends FREE of work for at least a few months and it couldn’t have come at a better time! Mr. Hess and I both work hard all year long, and it’s finally that time of year when we get some down time, or in this case some much needed wedding planning time. For the last 3 days I have actually gotten a full night’s sleep, naps, AND checked things off of our ongoing, evergrowing Wedding “TO DO” List.
First thing to get checked off?!
Purchasing my WEDDING BAND!!!!!
We FINALLY found exactly what we were looking for, and to my surprise it is actually opposite of what I initially was looking for. It in no way “matches” my Engagement Ring, but instead has a completely different look and I am IN LOVE!!!! In just 6-8 weeks, she will be home in our possession ready for the BIG DAY! 🙂 As for Mr. Hess’s? Eh…we are still going back and forth between 2. You think picking out a wedding band can’t be THAT difficult, but believe me…it can be. We’re almost there and I have confidence we will be purchasing his very shortly as well.
What else have we been up to in these past few “summer” days? EVERYTHING! It sounds so funny, but seriously the DAY my break started from my night job I was on the computer like white on rice. I answered e-mails, scheduled appointments, e-mailed my bridal party, researched more accessories, and really started the ball rolling on tieing up some loose ends. And the best part is…Mr. Hess is right there with me! He doesn’t really know this (until now, if he’s reading) but it really melts my heart when he initiates doing something for the wedding. I got butterflies today when he posted this song he heard onto his personal page and said it got him really excited about the summer & the wedding:
Tuxes (SO close…)
Videography (how important IS this to the budget?)
Honeymoon (Just a few clicks away from being booked!)
Invitations (Our part is almost done!)
Decor (finally starting to see the whole picture)
