All of our big stuff is done. We sent out the invitations last week and have gotten responses back already. Now we are working on our rehearsal invitations and I want to put together our flip flop basket. Also we need to start picking out readings and songs for the ceremony. 58 days!

Yep Ghana, done with everything and glad for it. There are like a million tiny details in an Indian wedding.


I must admit though, I had a lot of help from my mom, sis and FMIL.

I just found out the hair and make-up person we were planning to use in Boston flaked on someone else--twice.  I'm therefore now trying to figure out a replacement quickly.  Unfortunately, with two brides needing hair and make-up done in two different cities, the cost of hair and make-up is quadrupled, so we really need to find someone with rock-bottom rates.


My caterer had a close friend die, and has been too tied up with funeral stuff to work with us on finalizing our menus.


On the good side, I finished my lantern-style bar menus, got the cardstock for the lantern-style food menus cut out so I can make them as soon as the food is finalized, ordered a new toner cartridge so we can finish up the programs (which are done and ready to print), ordered our photo sharing cards, finished the final details on the chuppah, worked out the final recipe for our strawberry champagne cocktail, and drafted the explanation of the traditional Welsh love spoon we are putting on our cake.  That pretty much finishes off my DIY projects, although NotFroofy still has a few she needs to do.  I also managed to get the cost of accommodations for everyone reduced by $400, and paid off the remainder.  And the last of our linens (including the chair covers and napkin rings I finally broke down and bought) should arrive today.
