I know I promised pictures of my bridal showers but I left the picture taking up to Kate and Tara. I haven't seen Kate in close to 3 days and we live in the same house, and Tara decided to fly to California for 2 weeks on a minutes notice. So here I am... pictureless.
But today is a good day to blog anyways because
a MONTH from today we will be saying I DO!
Did you hear that folks???
I'm not going to lie... I tend to go into a slight anxiety attack whenever I think about how fast time is slipping by. I mean it feels like yesterday that I was saying, "Only 380 days until our wedding!" But here we are, a month out and it's CRUNCH TIME PEOPLE. No more french fries for me. Sigh. I knew this day would come.
So to keep me occupied and not focused on my ravenous hunger, I've been focusing my time on the music. Here's a little taste of what's to come.
Bridesmaid Processional- Re:stacks by Bon Iver
Coldplay Cocktail Hour- Yes, an entire hour dedicated to Isaac's favorite band Coldplay, which will include songs like Viva la Vida and, my personal favorite, Strawberry Swing (Watch that video! It's so cool!)
The Wedding Reception we wanted to have a soft acoustic feel so there will be songs like
I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons) by Nat King Cole, Love by Matt White, and Think of Me by Rosi Golan
For the Bouquet Toss, I got the inspired idea to play Single Ladies by Beyonce. And for the Garter toss? oh, just the theme from Jaws. Nothing too crazy. ;-)
And there's a section at the last half of our reception just for Kate. Yep. She had such a fit that we weren't going to have dancing that I finally said "Fine! But you're going to be the DJ because I'm not hiring one." So there is going to be a Phil and Kate Dj Hour which will have songs like Cha Cha slide by Mr. C, and E.T. by Katy Perry. It should be pretty fun. And I have a feeling Kate will be doing more boogeying than DJ'ing :-)
PS. Check out her fashion blog, KaitKulture!
