One of the best parts of this weekend though was finally being able to check out inside of the Chapel where we are getting married. Yep I booked it site unseen. I lived in Athens during university, passed it a million times but never noticed it until I needed to find a place to get married. I found it online, loved the pictures and booked it. Though every time I've been to Athens it has been locked up so I have only peeked in the windows. (Eric went inside once and took that picture to show me.)
Yesterday it was unlocked for a play so I got to inside. It is so cool. I love the details on the railing, the great old fashioned chairs my guests will sit in. I am so excited to have explored the building. My Mom and Dad who met us on site arrived before Eric and I did. My Dad was really happy to see it and he secretly practiced with my Mom how the whole wedding day aisle walk will happen with my Mom before I arrived. My Mom told me today.

Can I have a rum punch please?


Eric and I tabled our honeymoon for a while. We didn't know if we could take one, with time, money and his job being a factor. Though now we've decide we can and are going to go on one. And my wonderful husband-to-be is planning the whole thing. So with some research and desire for a cabana on the beach. He's decided we are going to go to St. Marteen/St. Martin Island. I am so excited.

All dressed up.

Time is going by so fast. I feel like it was just last August and I was feeling the "it will be for-EVER until next August and our wedding day" slump. Well now its 4 months and a few weeks and I wish I could slow down time just slightly. I do have great new though! Our groomsmen have suits! Eric wanted his guys to wear suits instead of the usual tux.Well my deal hunter of a Fiancee found exactly what he wanted and put in an order for 3 fantastic suits from Jos A Bank. So with that taken care of I can sit back for a bit. Watch the mail box since he ordered them online and relax.

Also if you are going to hunt for deals for your maids or men, make sure you get there measurements early. It is very stressful trying to locate 6 peoples sizes. Especially for suits.

It's forREAL.

So today I picked up my wedding band from the jewelery store. We had it made to match my engagement ring. Every band I tried on at numerous jewelry stores didn't line up with the channel set diamonds on my band. So we went to a great store in Atlanta and set about getting one made. So in a little over a month they made me a ring to match. I am so excited to have it. I've known for months now that Eric and I are getting married but buying that little ring of gold really made it feel real. I'm so excited.
