Wedding Chat: Choosing Bands & Meeting Our Officiant

Wedding Chat: Choosing Rings & Meeting Our Officiant - ItsHollieAnn
I know it's only been a few short weeks since I posted a wedding update but I couldn't help but share another because.. We've chosen our wedding bands! We'd originally decided on getting them in either late April or early May but the more we thought and the more our calendars filled up, we decided it would be best to get them early so that we've got longer to make any changes. 

As always our appointment with Rob was a dream. We caught up on the past few months over a coffee and champagne before the big reveal. I fell in love with my band as soon as I saw it - It's ever so delicate and compliments my engagement ring perfectly. My fiancee's is the perfect classic band however she's undecided whether to go for one that's an extra mm in width - You wouldn't believe the difference it makes.

We've decided we'll have them engraved after the wedding and I'm toying with the idea of getting my engagement ring done too. It's currently off to be resized which is giving me all kinds of separation anxiety but hopefully this time around it will be the perfect size, plus it'll get a little polish too so it'll be even more sparkling. We also chose to emboss our boxes. My fiancee's was ready yesterday but mine should be with my when my engagement ring comes back - It's exactly the same but the initials are reversed. 

This week we were also introduced to our officiant, Judy, over in Las Vegas. She's an award winning officiant with years of experience with all different kinds of ceremonies. She's down to earth, very fun and right up our street so we're very excited to be working with her.  

Also, we finally got round to having invitations printed so we're in the process of sending those out as we speak - I'm a bit nervous that people are going to tell us they're coming but not actually RSVP so I can see myself chasing people closer to the time. I'll apologise to them in advance.

We're still putting together a playlist to send to our DJ but I'm hoping he'll get the vibe and play some songs we've probably forgot to add. I almost forgot to mention that we also found vases for the tables at our Celebration/Reception party yesterday - They were a bargain from Ikea and they look 5x the price. Very happy indeed!

As of today, it's 75 days until we get married. I say this all the time but it's coming round so quickly! We're both incredibly excited but we'll be so sad that the planning and prep is over because we're truly having the best time!
