One Month to Go!

Hey y'all! Today was a very successful day. We finalized my bridesmaid luncheon. We got back the new part of the invitation (after having to print it a third time because of another mistake I signed off on)! I am going to put them together tonight and I'll be sure to take a picture of how our little mishap turned into a great creation.

My fiance picked up our rings! I can't wait to see mine. I have to wait for awhile because he is at his parent's house and I won't get to see him again for a week. =( This will be the last time we have to do the "distance" thing EVER so that is pretty exciting. I just want to be married!

We are still debating over linens. I hate linens and I'm so sick of looking at them. The hotel where we are getting married has odd shaped tables and so we have had a lot of trouble with finding the right size. I'm just leaving it to my wedding coordinator and my Mom.

Today is the deadline for our RSVP cards and we still have about 100 out! I find it hard to believe that it is so difficult to put a pre-stamped card in the mail. Hopefully we'll get a bunch tomorrow??

My bachlorette party is this weekend! Yeah! I am very excited. My little sister (who is 21) planned the party. Watch out! I have 9 friends making the trip to the beach. I'm going to miss a few of my bmaids and friends, but it is so hard to coordinate with spring/summer schedules. Anways, we have a great group and I can't wait. I just need to figure out what to wear...

I am so excited about our honeymoon. I would leave today if I could! I'm not sure if I ever shared our final itinerary with y'all. We decided to start in Germany at my fiance's bed and breakfast/vineyard that he worked in one summer in college. We will take the train from there to Lake Lucerne for 2 nights where we booked an amazing hotel! We will fly out of Zurich and into Nice for 5 nights in Ville Franche-Sur-Mer while we explore the French Riviera. Anyone have any suggestions if you have been to any of these locations? I need to start checking out the weather, I think I'm going to be in a lot of climates. What to pack, what to pack...

My fiance and I are also going to NYC in a few weeks to finalize our living situation. We have the help of a broker who is helping us for free, but I would love insight from any of you that know Manhattan. We like the Upper West and East the most, but we prefer the West because my fiance's job is on the West side. I can't believe I'm about to move! With all of this wedding planning, I keep forgetting!

My boyfriend lives on the Upper West Side, and it is always such a relief to get back there after being in the rest of the city. It just seems a lot more quiet. However, we have not always had the best luck with UWS restaurants-don't know how it compares to the UES.

Sounds like a fabulous honeymoon, I was in all three of those places a year ago and loved them. The train from Germany to Lucerne and Lucerne to Zurich will definitely be beautiful, my train went through several small villages that looked just like the movie Heidi. In Lucerne, I would recommend a lake cruise and a trip to the top of the mountain. For the French Riveria, lots of beach time, but be aware, the beach will probably be rocks, so chair rentals are a must.

Whew, you have some FUN times ahead - ENJOY it! sounds like you are on top of everything.
Last summer, we traveled in Italy & Germany (more in late June and July) and it was HOT - definitely pack for that but at night in the mountains, esp. in Germany it can be cool (cardigan/light pants cool). I keep thinking about the honeymoon now too..I just want to go!

I only lived in the West Village & SoHo....sorry I can't be any help in this dept. Good luck with your move!
Believe it or not once you are married a while, you won't mind doing the distance thing every now & then. A married girls trip is so much fun!!

I personally love the UES - but the UWS has much more interesting buildings, resturants and shopping.
