Progress post: 100 days

June 19, 2009 1 comment Posted by Jeff under: San Francisco, Wedding

Well, it’s about 100 days ’til our wedding on September 26, so — without giving too much away — let’s run down what’s done and what’s left to do! It seems like a lot, but I’m not stressing out (yet), ’cause we have some pretty clear ideas of what we want to do for most of them.


  • Venue reserved: The Cliff House, Terrace Room, San Francisco. The ceremony will take place outside, and the lunch reception will be inside the adjoining room. Remember to bring your camera to catch the great views of the ocean and beach (in addition to our happy faces)!

    Thom’s previous blog post with photos is here, and here’s a photo of the terrace from Here Comes the Guide:

  • Save the date cards sent
  • Music performers chosen
  • Officiant chosen
  • Photographer chosen
  • Honeymoon scheduled: a cruise of the Greek isles!

To do list:

  • Invitations and other stationery
  • Attire: linen suits for ceremony, and barongs (traditional Philippine shirts) for reception

    To give you an idea of what barongs look like, here’s Thom’s photo of barongs that we have. This was taken on a trip to the Philippines in 2007. Mine is on the left, and Thom’s is on the right. We wore them to a big school reunion that my mom had invited us to.

  • Rings: This is where I really need to narrow down some choices. So many great designs out there!
  • Cake: Something with a tropical fruit filling, for sure.
  • Food: We’ll be having a sit-down lunch. We need to go back to the Cliff House soon for a tasting, so we can narrow down entrées and include those choices with the invitations/RSVPs when it comes time for that.
  • Flowers
  • Favors
  • Ceremony and music

OK, whew, that’s all for now!
