This is The Mrs. Furleigh!
And we have sooo much to share with you. Really so much has happened in the last month I don’t know where we will begin. Then again I do….
Firstly, We would like to thank everyone who was a part of our special day! Thank you, thank you,
We cannot say that enough from everyone who helped pull everything together before hand (like my MOM who was always there to spring board or bounce ideas off of), day of, and clean up. Especially both our families and friends. We could not have been happier with the outcome. I was over the moon with the whole thing. So many of the details came together, of course, nothing is perfect and a few things didn’t happen that were originally planned but there were also many wonderful surprises throughout the evening. An appearance of sorts by my little sister through song (Its amazing how the things she left behind keep her present) Thanks, Dad. A swearing in ceremony for the presidents that was masterfully crafted and orchestrated by our MC (one of Richard’s cabinet members), my VP, and I. And also, a karaoke song dedication to the lady president by her mister president at the end of the night, right before the home made steampunk cake (blue velvet)!!!
With everything being crafted top to bottom ourselves and having never orchestrated something of this scale before it was amazing to see it all come to fruition. It wasn’t always easy though there were moments but it was worth it. For such a wonderful day there was also a great sense of accomplishment in it and I wouldn’t change it at all except maybe wishing we had known somethings ahead of time. 😉
Maybe this will help you or someone you know:
~The internet was our BEST FRIEND! (Pinterest!)
~Research, research, research…ahead of time. It will save you money and sanity so you aren’t rushing last minute.
~Make a list. Work up a spreadsheet. Have a plan. Share it with your other. It won’t always be 100% right on but you will at least have some direction/point of reference so you don’t feel like you are floating around in a sea of EVERYTHING!
~My best advice is to be flexible. You might find something you have to have or do but it might not be plausible but that doesn’t mean something like it can’t happen. Use that wonderful brain and work that creative muscle.
~Talk to friends they can help get those wheels a-movin’ and know somethings that all the research in the internet world you wouldn’t find.
~Make delegation lists of what needs to get done, when, and who is doing it ahead of time so you don’t miss anything the day of.~Above all remember what this day means to you and don’t get caught up making it more than that. The “things” are nice but they aren’t what is special about this day. I won’t define it for you because it is going to be slightly different for everyone but give it a bit of thought as you head into this big day. Write it down. It might help you in the long run when it gets to be a bit stressful in the process of everything. 😀
If there is anything we can help you with when it comes to planning one yourself we will gladly share our knowledge with you just send us a message!
