Okay, so I don’t really write checks anymore. I make almost all my payments online. In fact, I don’t even have physical checks anymore. I ran out about 4 months ago and figured that I didn’t want to order a new set until I have my new name after getting married. Then…THEN my friends, I will have checks again.
Anyhoo, this post is about getting things checked (off my to-do list) and getting things checked (paid for).
This is what I got done this morning:
I signed the contract for our band, The Funktastic 5, and mailed it out. We are very excited about this band. Everyone loves them, they’ve got variety and energy, and I think it’s really going to help everyone get up and dancing at our wedding. CHECK.
I sent in the room block reservation form for our out-of-town guests. CHECK.
I signed the contract for our photobooth (Joe’s Photobooth). Yay!!!! I still need to write a physical check for this, so I’m going to wait until I get paid on the 1st to send this in. That way I can up what I pay my FI, and he can write the check. (ps: I just ran that by my FI who is sitting 10 feet away from me who laughed when I asked him to write a check. He thinks it’s HILARIOUS that I’m in check hiatus.) CHECK.
I also am being a good girl and making copies of everything and keeping all contracts and what not safe in my wedding expandable folder. CHECK.
I scheduled my first dress fitting appointment for June 12th. At this appointment, I’ll be trying on the muslin mock up. This will be a VERY interesting appointment as it will be the first time that I’ve actually seen Brandie Thomas‘s handywork. I’ll take lots of pictures and post about that after the fitting. CHECK.
The last check (to-do) that I got done today was that I sent our invitation designer, Lindsey Ryan, all of our wedding info. This was something that I had put off for some reason. Gathering information was just something that I did not have time to do this last month until my grad classes were done for the semester. I finally got all my ducks in a row, and she’s got all the information she needs to start designing our stationery suite. I also asked her if she’d like to meet in person when I drive to Chicago on the 12th for my dress fitting. CHECK!
I’m le tired.
