5 Things Friday.

I've decided that I'm going to start a regular post every Friday called '5 Things Friday' because I heart lists. I'm a list making maniac ya'll! So every Friday I'm going to list 5 wedding related items, tasks, things that I need to get done and hopefully I'll actually get them done over the weekend.....but just in case I don't, I'm going to give myself until the next Friday. Because I'm generous like that and 'because I'm the bride THAT'S why'! Haha, I love that saying, I actually have a hot pink koozie on my desk at work that has that saying on it, I keep my pens in it. Anyway getting back on track are my 5 things!

1. Go by Tux Rental place at the mall and pick out tuxedo for my ushers to wear (ushers are my brothers who refuse to wear kilts because they are from the south and are way to manly and macho to wear 'skirts', I beg to differ though.....these guys look pretty macho to me!)

2. Keep looking for dresses for my mom to wear to the wedding.

3. Buy rest of Sparklers for send off and buy Matches, also look for cute tall vase to put the Sparklers in. (I saw the CUTEST photo last week of someone's sparklers and matches and cannot for the life of me remember where I saw them! UGH! It's driving me crazy!)

4. Look for a nice pen to place with the Guest Book at the ceremony. Anybody have any suggestions on this one, I'm at a total loss??? I don't want to spend a lot of money but I do want something nice.

5. Need to decide on a piper for the ceremony.


  1. Thanks for stopping my my blog.

    Can't wait to read more about all your wedding plans. I so miss planning my wedding.

  2. If you need suggestions for your Mom - my mom got her dress from Nordstrom - she loves it. My mother in law got a Watters dress - it hasn't come in yet, but hopefully she will like it!

  3. I second the idea regarding going to Nordstrom. That is where my mother found her dress.
    In regards to the pen, I had a pen stand by Waterford that I received as a gift when I got engaged and there is a pen included.

  4. Great suggestions!! We will definitely check Nordstrom out this weekend and I'll take a look at Waterford, thanks suburban prep! Thanks girls! :)

  5. I got our pen (with holder) at Michaels. (a craft store)If you have one out there they have some nice ones that are pretty inexpensive. I think I paid $10 for ours on sale
