I found this great tutorial on how to cut a glass bottle cleanly and without a saw! Boom! Safe and easy!
This is the tutorial: http://makezine.com/2010/03/08/how-to-cut-a-wine-bottle-in-30-seco/
This is the glass scoring tool I bought on Amazon for $19: http://www.amazon.com/Generation-Green-g2-Bottle-Cutter/dp/B004ZRV3AU/ref=sr_1_1?s=power-hand-tools&ie=UTF8&qid=1377051614&sr=1-1
This is why we want to cut wine bottles...
I'm excited! My ideas for the centerpieces are finally coming together.
I had a meeting with the venue event planner today and it went really well. She seemed surprised (and a tad bit judge-y) at some of my answers regarding traditions that everyone does that we're not (i.e. garter toss, place cards, and cutting the cake). Oh well, lady! It's my wedding! I'll do what I want!
So here are major to-do list items we have crossed off recently:
- Find an officiant - We found a WONDERFUL one! We love him!! BONUS: He's an elementary band director! This is great because Dan and I met in band! It's fate!
- Create a wedding website - Done! (I won't publish until we finish both registries).
- Finish Honeyfund registry - Done!
- Find dress - I GOT MY DRESS!! Wooohooo!! It's perfect and I didn't want to take it off! Yay!
Next to-do items:
- Finish BBB registry - we are purposely keeping this small to encourage people to go to the honeyfund registry instead. We have been living together for two years and we really don't want more house items. We would rather have an amazing trip together!
- Get hotel block and talk to hotel about room for me, bridesmaids and bridesman to get ready in.
- Take Engagement Photos - We are doing this in the next two or three weeks in Ellicott City.
- Send out Save the Dates.
- Start DIY projects - wine bottles and chalkboards.
- Talk with a travel agent about honeymoon/shop around for deals
School started this week for staff. Students come back next week. I'm glad that I have the major vendor decisions taken care of for the wedding since I won't have a lot of extra time to do that during the school year.
:) Peace out!
