Things I've Learned While Planning: 4 Months To Go

Wow, four months left...then what will I have to write about? Here we go...things I've learned while planning this shindig, the 'four months to go' edition:

1. Before securing the space for the morning-after breakfast, there is no limit to the number of questions we can be asked by the staff. We're hosting a casual breakfast, not the next G8 summit.

2. When I mention "the wedding" to my fiancé, he will usually respond by asking "Whose wedding?" And for whatever reason, he is seriously asking this question.

3. The salesperson at Priscilla of Boston wasn't at all prepared for me to spout off my credit card number in ten seconds flat when paying for the balance of my dress over the phone. I'm not the only one who has this memorized...am I?

4. My fiancé doesn't have my address, cell phone, or email memorized. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on the address (I've moved a lot in the past few years), but my cell and email...I've had those longer than we've known each other.

5. Every time I go in to ask the tailor at my dry cleaner something new, I'm just waiting for him to say no to my request at this point. So far, so good. But I feel like I'm really pushing the limits.

6. Is it possible to stare at honeymoon itineraries saved in your email too much? I say no.

7. When the bridal shop can't find my dress for a nerve wracking 30 minutes even though it is supposed to be hanging on a rack somewhere, a self-edited montage of Say Yes To The Dress freak out moments will play on a continual loop in my mind, acting as my own personal calming mechanism.

8. Having our tasting rescheduled because of burst pipes in the ballroom and what sounded like a minor flood in the kitchen is not only a major bummer, but also totally throws off dinner plans for that night.

Until next month when I'm back with more...thanks for reading, as always, and be sure to check out TWB for all of our other features!


  1. Ha! This is great! Keep us posted on the next 4 months!

  2. Oh of course - thanks for the comment :)

  3. hahaha, love that "fiance" doesn't have address, cell phone or email memorized...and keeps inquiring about whose wedding all this planning is about! Hey, he's not a numbers guy ;) Except for a few statistics here and there...
