Saturday, we grabbed a quick lunch then headed to pick out our wedding bands. I thought this was going to be super easy but it actually took two glasses of wine and about an hour. Ha! Then, we headed to South Park mall to look for a Mother of the Bride dress for my mom. She has been a little worried about this but we were successful and found a pretty mauve/lavender chiffon dress with a beaded bodice and jacket. Perfect Mother of the Bride! We headed home and enjoyed a nice dinner out to celebrate.
Sunday after church, we headed for another quick lunch then went right back for our first of two premarital counseling sessions. I thought this was going to be a little stressful but it went super smoothly and now we are halfway finished with our sessions. We took a long walk afterwards then had a Southern barbecue dinner. Yum!
Our day Monday was completely full. We met up with our wedding planner, Cortenay, and started at 8:15 am at The Tuxedo Lady in uptown Charlotte where we picked out tuxes for Corey, the groomsmen, and our ring bearer. Then, we headed straight to Ballantyne Resort where we had a meeting about decor. We chose table linens, discussed chargers and room set up, and talked about centerpieces. From the meeting, we headed straight to our dinner and cake tasting down the hall. This was by far my favorite part!
Yummy menu for our tasting! We'll discuss this more another day!
Sneak peek at our entree choices and the options for accompaniments! We made a final decision but everything was so good that it was tough!
We met with Cake Lady Jill of Charlotte to discuss the design for our cake and taste flavors. More to come on the cake next week! Everything was delicious!
Today, I'm off to meet with a potential florist, then to my hair and make up trial, then straight to check out a rehearsal dinner venue.
Tomorrow, unfortunately, isn't nearly as fun. I have to go to the gynechologists and finish up my taxes with our accountant. Not the most exciting end to my trip! Ha!
Happy Tuesday ladies!
