Imagine my surprise when I log into my Knot account and my upcoming “to do list” had gone from 130 to 75. WHERE DID ALL OF MY TASKS GO? I started looking through them and discovered that apparently the website did a complete overhaul of their checklist. YOU CAN’T JUST DO THAT, KNOT. I had already gone through and deleted the tasks that were not relevant, so now I am faced with trying to figure out for myself which tasks have been removed?????????????? I’ve only figured out five. 😦 I looked at a few other websites but no other checklist was as detailed. The greatest thing about The Knot checklist was that it included everything so that you don’t forget the little stuff, and now a lot of the little stuff is gone. If I forget something the day of the wedding no one is going to want to be around me.
Last week Joey and I registered at Macy’s. IT WAS SO FUN. Definitely my favorite part of the wedding preparations thus far. There was a lot of “What is that? WE NEED IT.” We kept each other in check and didn’t put anything on the registry that we won’t use. Your registry gets auto imported into the Macy’s website so you can go back and change things if you need to update quantities, decide you don’t want something, or you accidentally register for something when your fiance “sees what happens” when you press the button from far away. We went on a weekday so that the mall wouldn’t be crowded and we didn’t feel rushed. It took us about two hours.
Our second registry is with Z Gallerie. I found them when I was looking for something that Jeff Lewis used on Flipping Out because we love his style. We used this website more for the home decor type items. Registering online sucks. It’s not that fun and it takes forever to go through everything.
A couple people have asked if we were going to register at all since we “already have everything.” I beg to differ. We moved in together when we were 19 so most of our kitchen stuff is cheapo. Our dining sets are a hodge podge, our pans are all warped on the bottom, and much to the chagrin of Rachelle and my mom, we don’t own a coffee pot. We also have completely different taste than we did 8 years ago. We have updated a couple of things along the way but there are still quite a few things that we need. You’re basically an idiot when you’re that young and our tastes have become much more modern and refined.
We went over to my parents’ house over the weekend to address Save the Dates. I thought I wanted to print and my mom thought they should be in cursive. According to Joey, “cursive is dead.” We each addressed one and hers looked way better so we did them all in cursive. Joey was in charge of stuffing and stamping envelopes because if he were involved in writing they would all be returned to sender.
