Guy's Attire

I did these using S & K's Build a Tux feature.
This would be for Jon and the GM. Our ring bearer will wear one as well.
And this would be for the dads.
I made these the other night. Jon likes them, but we're obviously going to go to S & K and see if we like the vests when we actually see them. But I called today to see if I can get a price. Oh, I got a price. $120 for each. Jon's is free. The others--20% off. Making them a whopping $100. And this price includes everything--jacket, pants, shirt, vest, tie, shoes. The whole shebang. Uh, yes, please!

Ceremony Reading!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

(9) Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work;
(10)If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
(11)Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?
(12) Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

I love it. FI and I got it from the list our pastors gave us.

Love it!!

First Meeting with Pastors: check!

We had our meeting this weekend and it went GREAT! It was basically an introductory meeting. We went over the typical ceremony timeline and discussed the wedding rehearsal. We also were given examples of wedding programs so that we could get a feel for how things will go. Then, we were given a list of scripture readings to read through and see if we liked them. Obviously, if we don't like any of them, or we want a different reading, we're more than welcome to do so, but it gave us a start for sure! And finally we were given an "inventory" it's called. Basically it's a booklet with 115-ish questions regarding various marital subjects (i.e. money spending, children, communication, arguements, etc).

Before our next meeting (which is T.B.D.) we will need to give them the surveys so that they can look through them. Then at our next meeting, we'll go through what they call "red or yellow flags". We'll also talk more about our music selections.

It's crazy to think that things are actually becoming concrete. It seemed like forever until we were going to have to start meeting with our pastors. And here we are!
