Greyson and I have made a little progress this week on wedding planning. We purchased several things this past Saturday at Hobby Lobby’s 50% off wedding selections sale. We are trying not to break the bank on this wedding, mainly Billy’s bank (my dad). We found some great things at great deals. We bought a unity candle holder, guest book and pen, garter, tea candles to go around our centerpieces and lots of thank you notes in preparation for all of our showers we have coming up,
And the item I am most excited about, our invitations! I purchased them at Michael’s. They are ivory with purple swirls and purple ribbon. We are going to get them printed at Kinkos. I can’t wait to hear people’s reactions of them. We are going to have an envelope stuffing party early in March with our friends. I thought if we feed them they will work and we won’t spend hours doing it ourselves. I’ll be sure to blog about the party.
And another exciting start, we have our first premarital counseling session with Brother Darryl Turner of First Baptist Church of Hartsville on February 2. Brother Darryl is a precious man of God and we are both honored he has decided to guide us during this time and to officiate our wedding. I already have many ideas and scripture that I want to be apart of the ceremony. I will share some of my ideas and scripture in another post soon.
My new job is still going great! I have some busy days ahead of me though. We are booked solid with conferences and weddings starting tomorrow and ending Monday so I’m heading towards my bed. Until next time!
