6 weeks to go....checked off 11 things in 1 week!

With 6 weeks to go, we've just begun to get our act together in getting our details wrapped up. (Not to mention, I've got 4 more weddings to coordinate before ours!)
Tonight, we have our last meeting with Reverend Wilson to review our ceremony. I'm very excited, not only because Reverend Wilson is tons of fun (it's hard not to smile around him) but also because I'll finally get started on printing our programs.

In the last few days, we've been able to check off the following and feel a little bit more sane:
  • Mail our invitations -- Genevieve Walker created a fabulous custom wedding map for us to enclose with our invites (will share once our guests receive the invites first!)
  • Ask our uber-talented friends, Jessica, soprano, to sing me down the aisle (to the song that always brings tears to my eyes) and Jard, classical guitar, to mesmerize us with his mad guitar skills for our ceremony at Christ Church of Sausalito
  • Order uplights from ImpactSF - blue for the stage (where we'll dance) and amber for the reception hall
  • Send our photographers, Davina + Daniel their final payment 
  • Set up a jam-making session (for our favors) with Slow Jams at La Cocina
  • Pay the balance for our Oahu honeymoon to Mundi Travel
  • Book parlor and bridal suite at Four Points Sheraton San Rafael
  • Select a caterer, Cibo, for our rehearsal picnic in the Marin Headlands
  • Schedule a final fitting with seamstress, Anne Ventresco 
  • Choose linens from Hartmann Studio Rentals -- here's what the specialty linens look like (we got poly cotton orange and beige for all other tables)
 {Turquoise Nepal for the head table and 6-foot banquets}

 {Tiffany Blue Lamour for the candy buffet}

So, what's left? A lot...

We're waiting on the final menu from our caterer and still need to hire servers. And Guitar Fred has yet to buy his suit. Eeks!

5 love notes:

Oh, gosh. I love the linens you chose. I can't wait to catch up with you after your wedding. Have a smashing time in the next few weeks.

Congrats on progressing so quickly this week and loving those linens!

Getting the invites out definitely made me feel more sane...and buying stuff. There's a lot of shopping to do! Agh!

Thanks, $10,000 wedding and Sarah! We just got 3 RSVPs back after sending them on Tuesday, so I'm starting to feel more sane, Echo. :) And Guitar Fred bought his suit today (and so did his best man, Men's Wearhouse is having a buy one, get one free sale). I wonder if I should keep it a surprise since the one we picked out on Friday together isn't the one he ended up buying.
