We fly to New Jersey today for the wedding. Wow. It is hard to wrap my mind around the fact that it is so close. The excitement is really building. Most of the major things are taken care of and we can start to relax.
This afternoon we are going to drop off the welcome bags at the hotels. We don’t want any of the out of town guests arriving a little early to miss out on anything. I put the bags together when I was home in September so they would be ready for us.
I am excited about what we put in the bags – a little something from the places important to both of us – but we don’t want to give anything away too soon. I promise to blog about it after we get back from the wedding.
The bags and our wedding have a bit of a green theme. We decided to reuse shopping bags for the welcome bags in order to minimize the waste we are producing during the wedding. At the wedding, there will be potted plants that the guests can take home.
