I don't have a picture to accompany this post so you're just going to have to take my word for it, but we got our cake toppers finally and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! The lady was so awesome to work with and they're just perfect. I can't wait for people to see them on our cake and laugh. (BTW, if you are looking for a cake topper or a clay sculpture, she offers more than just robots! Check her out!)
We finally got off our butts over the break and finished registering! Our registries are now Bed,Bath & Beyond (or Tri-B as C likes to call it) and Target. I've heard sometimes things go funky with Target's registries so we'll have to keep an eye on it but I think it's ok so far. The hard part is having 2 registries though because we were wandering around asking each other if we remembered registering for X at Tri-B.
I'd like to manage it online but I have no idea what my password is so I'll have to do something about that soon.
Also, I can almost cross chairs off my list since I'm under contract with a rental company for the ceremony. The price is reasonable as long as we're willing to set up and tear down ourselves, which, I have brothers and what else are the groomsmen doing that day?!
I also contacted someone about transportation for myself and the wedding party for the ceremony. It's only 3.5 miles from the hotel to the ceremony but I don't know anyone else to help us so I guess we'll be renting a limo bus of some kind. C's friend has an Escalade but it won't fit the entire wedding party and someone else would have to drive the bridal party since he's a groomsman. Maybe we could make it work... It'd be nice to save some money.
We were planning a trip back to Chicago but I'm not sure we need to do that just yet. Seems like we have a plan for most things. We'll see as the wedding gets closer.
