efficiency for effectiveness

Efficiency is the key to effective wedding planning. For months I have known that I was had this Friday to dedicate towards planning activities up in New Jersey. As a result, Mom and I have a very full weekend ahead!

Our Friday itinerary includes:

  • {Florist and Designer} This is our first consultation with the preferred florist of our wedding venue. I'm looking forward to talking to him about the options that are available! I absolutely adore flowers and wish that I could learn how to design bouquets and arrangements. 
  • {Limousines} The limo company we scouted out requested that we stop by to take a look at their fleet. Fingers crossed we can book the vintage Rolls Royce! Two benefits of having an RR at the wedding: the sheet joy of riding in the Rolls with my Dad as I get transported from my childhood home to the place where I become a wife and a Mrs. Secondly, it will make for some really fantastic pictures!
  • {Mother of the Bride Dresses} My Mom seems to have made more headway in her dress shopping than me, but that's okay! She found a great dress that she wants me opinion on. I have no doubt it will look great, she has the keenest sense of fashion.
  • {Lunch} Need lots of energy for a full itinerary like this one.
  • {Invitations, Printing, and Calligraphy} I haven't even purchased save the dates yet because I am waiting to see what this lady has in store. I will admit, I am a stationery snob. Every time I receive an invitation I will run my fingers over the paper to see if the ink is raised or if the paper is pressed. I'm willing to splurge on invitations because it is important to me - such a shame most people will throw them away the next day.
  • {Eyebrows at Anastasia} I have heard wonderful tales about the ladies at Anastasia and their eyebrow-taming-mastery. I rarely get my eyebrows professionally done, so I figured that taking a few trips to Anastasia while I'm in NJ between now and the wedding couldn't hurt to give some real shape to what has been referred to as the "monsters" and "furry caterpillars" on my face ;-)
  • {Century 21} It is an absolutely necessity to take advantage of the tax-free, reduced-priced shopping that is available in NJ. While at Century I plan to thoroughly expand my collection of mismatched, brightly colored socks. (That will make sense to my fellow flyers out there!)
Phew, I'm exhausted just thinking about what's in store for us tomorrow! OH, who am I kidding? I can't wait!! I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve. This is going to be a very productive weekend and I can't wait to get it started...

  1. Have fun and good luck! Not sure about your invite
    Vision, but if you are going traditional you can beat reeves engraving. Cranes paper and obviously engraved. Hope you enjoy this fun time!
