Crunch time!

It's been a while since I've posted anything. The holidays happened and well life happened. Now we are in wedding planning a prep full tilt. Things seem to be trucking right along but I am very good at deluting myself. We've crossed off a lot of things this week...

We purchased my wedding band. It's a simple white gold band that tucks right up next to my engagement ring. We bought it at Wright's Jewelers. They are the ones who did an amazing job fixing my engagement ring so we have stayed loyal.

We ordered the gifts for our bridesmaids and groomsmen. We got a great price on those and once they get here we just have a few minor finishing touches to add.

We have met with the Gordon Lee Mansion to finalize the menu and various details. The ceremony will take place on the front steps of the house and the reception will follow in the formal garden. The menu consists of heavy hourderves and is as follows:

Sliced Roast Beef with assorted breads and cheeses
Mushroom caps stuffed with a crab stuffing and a swiss cheese and wine stuffing
Fresh fruit array
Finger sandwiches: chicken salad sandwiches and Cucumber Sandwiches
BBQ chicken Drummettes
Mini Quiches
Vegetables and dip

Drinks will include a mock champagne punch, sweet and unsweet tea, water, beer, and wine. We will have real champagne for toasts.

More to come over the next few days...
