Wedding Plans

Things are moving along on the wedding plans. We have had the ceremony and reception venue (McCamly Plaza Hotel) for awhile now, but lacked other plans. Last Sunday, I attended the Bridal Expo in Lansing with the Bride and Maid of Honor. We found our photographer!! Actually, a wonderful husband/wife team. They were enthusiastic and delightful to talk to. The examples of their wedding photography was first rate.

On Friday evening, I met the Bride and Maid of Honor at the bridal salon to see THE wedding gown. On the hanger, the dress is lovely, but on the Bride-to-Be, it is amazing!!! What a beautiful bride. They have also selected the dresses for the attendants and they are lovely.

I took the FOB (Father of the Bride) to the tux store for his fitting one evening last week. The Groom took his attendants, also.

Next Sunday we will attend another Bridal Expo, but this time it is in the same city as the wedding will be. We hope to find vendors for a few remaining details that need to be closer to the ceremony/reception site.

Things are moving along nicely toward a July wedding.

Knit content in the next post, hopefully. Tax season has significantly cut into my knitting time.

Happy New Year!!!

Where did 2009 go? Around here, it seemed to fly by me. I had intended to post about Christmas, but did not get to that. We were in CT for Christmas and that afforded me the opportunity to make my annual knitted donations to the Jersey Battered Women's Shelter via my aunt who makes the actual delivery. I may get around to sharing photos of those donations another day.

Awhile back (can't even remember how long ago), I was on a Mason Dixon bib knitting craze. They were kind of addictive as mindless, relaxing knitting and would later serve a useful purpose. I finished twelve bibs and put them away, still in need of a button closure. I have an abundant supply of very cute buttons that are suitable for baby and children's items, but just did not take the time to sew them on. I sat down today, sewed a button on each bib, and now they are ready for donation.
