Today is exactly 99 days until our wedding (according to Bed, Bath, and Beyond anyways)!! A lot of people have been asking how wedding planning is going, so I thought I’d blog about it as a break from planning!
But first, let me share some really fun pictures, all courtesy of Sara Smile Photography (click the link to see her blog entry about us!).
We adventured around downtown Boston a bit with our awesome photographer before making her pizza at our house.
You can see all of the engagement photos here (look for the bonus “Pizza” section!)
So, wedding planning…this is what we have so far: date, location, caterer, dessert, booze, bartending, supply rental, wedding dress & shoes, best man/woman, flower girl/boy, wedding stage manager, photographer, wedding website, save the dates, registry, mini-moon, and honeymoon flights.
Wow, writing that list made me feel good!
Yesterday we went to do a site visit of the camp and it got me really excited (except for the part where I slipped and fell down the stairs – but good to get all that out now!). I forgot how beautiful it was there, as well as how big! We brought our moms with us, which was a relief to have other people see it and start thinking about all the things we need to think about and do! After we got home, I wrote a detailed list of all the things we need to do – it has now crested 60!! I’ve been grappling with the amount of tangible stuff we need to think about/get/bring – iron/ironing board, board games, center pieces, decorations, lights, bathroom kits, and who knows what else (hopefully my spreadsheets know?!).
Some of the “what we still need to do”: invitations, get officiant, get David’s clothes, Jenny’s jewelry/hair/make up, center pieces and decorations (a lot!), flowers, playlist, wedding rings, marriage license, design ceremony, write vows, cabin assignments, seating charts…ok, I take back the part about feeling good about what’s already done!
We’re definitely going to need to ask friends and family to help us…We just need to get organized to figured out what to ask for help with!
Lastly, the camp is going to be totally awesome. It’s not hotel accommodations, it’s better! It’s not really roughing it – the walls are sealed, there is heat, electricity, plumbing, etc. It’s going to be like a big sleepover with adults, or like being at college, but our family is there too!
Now, back to spreadsheets!

Jenny, I am so envious of your organizational skills. I miss your travel blogs but I imagine there will be more of those post wedding. Make sure to post lots of pictures. Break a leg with your biggest production so far!
I think everyone might overestimate my organizational skills…It’s funny you said you miss the travel blogs because I almost wrote at the end of the last entry “P.S. I miss traveling and writing about it!”.
WOW!!! I am tired and out of breath just reading this. It will all get done.
I think I can speak for the other Mom also – we really liked the camp! It’s going to be beautiful in September. Jenny, with your organization skills, you’ll get it all done.
