His+Hers=Ours: 3 months and counting…

IMG_4454We are now at the 3-month mark until our wedding! The past couple months have been very productive and, definitely, a learning adventure. Here are a few things we’ve crossed off our list, and some helpful tips and wedding ideas to go with them.

1. Food. We have been looking at the list of food options that our reception hall offers for over a year, drooling every time we looked at it. And finally, it was time to do our food tasting! We picked four different items from the menu and tried those first. They were good, but it wasn’t until we were eating that we figured out what was important to us. We realized we didn’t want to serve something at our wedding that you could order at any restaurant in town. We wanted something a little more memorable. Tip: Before making the decision on what you’d like to taste test, ask the caterer what their top entrees are in your price range and talk over what you think would be the biggest crowd pleaser. We did that for our second tasting and wow! Ah-mazing! We are now very confident with our food choice.

2. Invitations. Wedding invitations are such a big deal. This is the only communication piece between you and all your guests, so it better be clear and informative. You do not want guests calling friends or family members (or worse, you!) to get the time of the ceremony or address of the reception hall. Better to err on the side of giving too much information than not enough. Tip: If you can’t fit all the information within your wedding invitation ensemble, direct them to your wedding website for additional information.
