Wedding Check List

Our wedding is fast approaching and I still have soooooo much to do.
The major things are taken care of, but there are alot of little detail things to do.

Date--------May 31st, 2008

Type Of Ceremony-------Private, Somewhat Traditional with Family.

She is one of our Family Court Judges and a friend of ours.

Reception----Hors d' oeuvres
Location-------Federal Grove Bed & Breakfast Auburn, Ky.

Check out the web site. It is a beautiful place.

Cake-------Found one that I liked online & sent a picture to Teri at Federal Grove.

She will take care of the rest.

Wedding Accessories------Guest Book, Cake Servers ............
Invitations-------Finally Ready To Go Out.
They take some time. Getting together the guest list, finding addresses, and then getting them ready to mail. Takes some time.

Dress-------(actually a suit) Beige and Gold.

Maid of Honor-------My Daughter

Best Man--------Michael's Son

Person Walking Me Down The Aisle-----My Son

Flower Girl-------My Niece
She has her little basket and has been practicing scattering the flowers.

Music------Members Of Bowling Green Symphony Orchestra.

Honeymoon-------St. Augustine/Daytona

Travel Agent------My Baby Brother
He has our flights and rental car booked.

Hotels----------Nashville/Loews Vanderbilt Hotel
We have stayed here before...I HIGHLY recommend it.

St. Augustine/
Casa Monica Hotel
An 1888 Landmark restored in 1999. Romantic Spanish Style Decor.

Daytona/The Plaza Resort And Spa

Beautiful hotel overlooking the beach with a private balcony in every room.

The last night of our stay will probably be spent in Orlando, since that is where we will fly out of to return home.

Hotel arrangements have yet to be made and we will most likely just wing it. Surely there will be lots of hotels to choose from.

Our list of things yet to do are:

To make the final decision as to which dress Maid Of Honor and Flower Girl will wear.

They have two and I can't seem to make up my mind just yet.

Still in the process of getting together the guys suits.

Meeting with Teri at Federal Grove and deciding on which Hor d' oeuvres to serve and what kind of flower decorations are needed.

Putting together the wedding favors.

Making the final decision about the vows.

Deciding how we are going to get to Nashville after the wedding.
We have been playing with the idea of a Limo, so that our car will not have to be at the airport the whole time we are gone.

I still need to decide on my Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.
Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

I'm sure there are probably things that I am leaving out.

As you can see we have been busy and we still have things to do.
It has been fun putting everything together and watching it all come together.
I have loved sharing some ot the wedding traditions with my daughter.
I've actually learned alot about them myself. Several of them I did not know the reason for, I just knew that was the way things usually were.
Anyway, I am having fun putting this together and starting this new phase of my life.
I hope that you will share in this begining with me.


  1. Hey Jeanette, plans sound like they are coming together. I have Mammaw's gold heart-shaped little diamonds and ruby necklace that you could borrow for something old and borrowed. Don't know if it will fit with what you are wearing. It's Not real big, but the chain it came with keeps breaking, so you would have to use one of your gold chains or something. That way you could determine the length you want also. I would of course want it back right after the wedding. It is what I got after she died. We all gave it to her on her 70th birthday party. So its about 20 years old, ha ha. Don't know if that's old enough. Just let me know if you want to borrow it. LOVE ya, Carol

  2. Great pictures what a beautiful young lady


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
