Song requests!

13 DAYS!!

This weekend (among many other things), we're working to put together a list of songs that we'd like the DJ to play at our reception, and we want YOUR help! We know that many of you who read this blog will be joining us for the reception, and there will definitely be the option for song requests on the day of, but if you have any fabulous song ideas NOW, we'd love to add them to our list!

Here's what we're looking for:

-garter toss/bouquet toss songs
-dollar dance song
-last dance song (something fast and fun!)
-a couple good slow dance songs to throw in the mix (to appease Kevin, I suppose this will have to include country music :) )
-calm, chill music to play during the mingling/lunch portion of the reception (background music) (We're having some trouble with this one, so any ideas would be lovely!)
-and lastly, of course, just general dance music for the dancing portion of the reception

Can't wait to hear everyone's ideas! THANKS!!

Fiance Friday!


It's been so long! I know, I've missed you too. It's not you, it's me. No, really it is. Ok enough of that. The point is, I'm not going to be a fiance much longer! What on Earth will we start calling this section of the blog?? Man Monday? Wedded Wednesday? I'm at a complete loss! Help!!!

As many of you know, the big wedding is only 15 days away! Holl and I have been buy making things for the reception, as well as taking care of some last-minute details. We've been talking about all of these things for so long that now it's FINALLY almost here!

We had a phone conversation with our priest, Fr. Bert Thelen, SJ, on Monday to discuss plans for the Wedding Mass itself. There are literaly options for us to pick for EVERY part of the Mass! Thank goodness the Archdiocese of Omaha actually sent us a booklet with everything in it. so we could easily pick and choose what we wanted. Makes for much easier wedding planning! Any guesses on which readings we have chosen for our wedding? Lector's, you are not allowed to chime in, since you already know! I'll give a little bit of a hint. They are all readings from the Catholic Church's Rite of Marriage.

Anyhow, that's about it from me for today! Hope you all are having a great summer so far! Just an FYI if you plan on attending our reception...It might be BYOC (Bring Your Own Canoe)!

Plans for the upcoming weekend include working on the photobooth backdrop for our wedding reception. We are attempting to create one ourselves, so stay tuned for the results.

In other news, we are so excited about the props we just purchased for the booth from this Etsy shop.

Can't believe we are only 22 days away from wedding day!
