So now I'm "shopping" or should say browsing for reception and ceremony details trying to get ideas so I can show Nick tomorrow or sometime to see what he thinks. And I've been hunting for flower girl and ring bearer gifts, which I think I might have figured out what to get them. I know it's early to be doing all this, but if we can get it out of the way now it's one less thing to worry about later. (that's become my mantra) I am thinking backpacks with their names embroidered. I thought it was practical and cute (because you can choose different colors, and any little kid with a backpack is adorable). But I have to see what the posse thinks about it, because not everyone thinks what I think is cute or a good idea. We'll see...
I'm off to "shopping" again, wish me luck!!

After we had our meeting and we went to Honesdale to look at four wheelers, snowmobiles, and motorcycles. We started at Rusty Palmer's and just looked around, but didn't really find anything. Then we decided to go to Baer's. We went in to check out the nightrod, and ended up coming out wanting to buy a touring bike. We even test drove the General Manager's bike (a ultra classic electraglide)!! It was like riding on a cloud through heaven...seriously! So what does this have to do with the wedding you might ask??? Well we are considering buying one (probably used) and riding around the country (1-2wks) for our honeymoon. We'll see what happens with it...
Sunday we went down to meet with the Caterer with Nick's parents. We tasted stuffed chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, and pasta salad. Everything was good except for the pasta salad..it was way too oily. So it was a good thing that we tasted it even though it seems like a pretty generic thing. But other than that everything was great! The guy, Mike, is really nice and seems like he will be super easy to work with! We have to call him back in Jan/Feb to schedule a meeting in April to go over the menu a little more (we already have it decided, but around that time we will have more of an idea of numbers and things).
So that was our weekend of wedding things. I don't think there is much else coming up, except on the 20th. Nick and I are going to Middletown to see what kind of tuxes they have. We'll definitely keep you updated on how that goes.

We are getting the ringbearer tuxes from here too. They have a lot of dresses to choose from, and even have holiday ones too. So if you or someone you know is looking for a pretty little girl's dress or flower girl dress, then let me know and I will send you the website!!
I know it's stunning with the calendar backdrop! Be expecting that at the wedding too...Every table with their own HUGE calendar, because we never want you to forget what day it is :)

Tomorrow is the day the girls come up and meet each other (all but Michelle in AZ-she's here in spirit though), so that is exciting. I was just working on the food for it, but it's late and dark and I'm a baby...I kept hearing a thumping and the dog started to growl so I hightailed it out of the kitchen and am now ready for bed. :) I still hear the thumping, but it's not as scarey up here with Nick in the next room (even if he is sleeping). Yes, I'm a scaredy cat of the things that go bump in the night.
I'll be sure to check in tomorrow and let you know how that went.

So now the maybe funny story...We got a DVD from a company that does photog, videog, DJ, live bands, and photo montages. So of course I watched it, and then the next night watched it again with Nick (he was too tired & interested in 'Trick My Truck' the night before). While I must say we were overall pleased with everything we saw, except for the live band. So the DVD is over and Nick looks at me and says "wow, this is coming up really fast. We are getting married SOON. Now I'm getting nervous [bc of all the people]" and I was like "well compared to 3 years, yea I'd say 9 1/2 months is pretty soon, but at the same time-not really". But it was more funny in real life because you could see the look of shock-like whoa it hit him, & how scared/nervous he is about having to be in front of all those people and DANCE, lol. (His biggest anxiety!!) I just thought it was funny that he was sorta freakin this far away, and wonder how he'll be when it gets even closer...oh no! lol

We are trying to get as much as we can done now, so that the months before aren't insane & I'll be able to focus on school more than the wedding (at least in theory that's how it is supposed to work). I'm super excited, & Nick- he's playing it cool.

Studio $85 a night!!!! (I'm not sure if they offer anything besides a studio though)
Looks nice, seems comparably reasonable.
Nice looking cottages, studio-3bedroom. Cheapest I've found so far!!
Best for people who don't mind sharing a house with other family/person(s).
Here are some hotels: (These were given to my by Capt. Howie [wedding officiant])

Below are the websites where we found these activities (some are repeated), along with the general prices for the activities:
Of course you can always relax on the beach, worshiping the fiery blaze in the sky while watching the ocean waves, for free.
Here are some websites for:
(1) rentals in Waimanalo http://www.beachhousehawaii.com/beachhousehawaii_c/index.cfm?fuseaction=sitecontent.default&objectID=498&parentID=498
and (2) all of Oahu Island:
I think that some of the deals are pretty good especially if you don't mind sharing a house with another family or person.
Also-I have been looking at cheaptickets.com (b/c they seem to be the cheapest) vacation packages (not for exact dates yet b/c can't yet) and find that you can get a pretty decent deal for a hotel room in honolulu with a plane ticket. It really is up to whichever you would prefer, but I'd be happy to help along the way.

Well we have our first wedding dilemma: to have a traditional wedding here, or to get married in Hawaii. When we got first engaged we wanted Hawaii, but over time we have leaned towards a traditional here wedding, but now we are leaning back towards Hawaii. If we chose Hawaii we will get married and have our immediate family, (and whoever else wants/can come) and then have a "reception"/BBQ when we return. The price is about the same for both.
So I guess my main concern would be: would people come to the very casual "reception"/BBQ? and if we had it streamed LIVE through the net would people watch it (or is that a waste of money)?
We really need some input, so any ideas/advice is welcome!!
