Here's the latest in my Terkelsen in Training life:
1. We had to change the reception venue to a rise in cost. Apparently the fine print stated that prices were subject to change without notification. The price went up to more than I felt the place was worth so my mom and the wedding planner (the amazing Pam Hill) found a new place: The Bass Hall! It's way cooler than the other place and it's cheaper. I'd say it's a bargain....and I loveeee me a bargain.
Yep...that's the place. AND! Jacob and I get to leave the reception in a horse drawn carriage. I was immediately sold on this....Jacob- not so much.
2. I picked my bridesmaids dresses a couple of weekends ago. I was lucky to have all of my bridesmaids together for this special weekend! We talked about the next time we'd all be together for sure would be at the wedding! I found "the one" dress at the first stop but needed to make it settled in my own mind that I had exhausted all options so we went looking at another place. Naturally, I found one I liked there too. Naturally. So, I needed to go to another place to settle my mind. Luckily nothing at the 3rd place was any sort of options. Here's a picture of my beauties and their dresses: (Like said on Facebook, right now they look like a bag of Wildberry Skittles, but rest assured they'll all be in the dark purple color in December)
3. Jacob and I completed 2 of our 3 registries last weekend. Jacob claimed we spent 5 hours in Bed Bath & Beyond, but actually we only spent 4. I can honestly say I've never been that overwhelmed in a store ever. It's a big deal to be picking out stuff that you'll have for the upcoming future. Big deal. No pressure. Our Bridal consultant guy was a hoot. He literally followed us around the entire store commenting on certain items and how much he recommends them. I'm sure I'd recommend a $600 set of pots too if my job depended on it. ;) By the end of it all, we had 14 pages worth of items and we still didn't get everything we had thought of. After we left BB&B, Jacob needed to go home and take a breather. I convinced him to let me start at Target without him. It was across the street so why waste a trip?! Jacob re-joined me about 45 minutes later and we finished the Target registry relatively quickly. Jacob even scanned a Nerf Gun. :)
Next big thing on the wedding planning list is the cake. :) I'm uber pumped about the cake and so is Jacob.
