Hip Hip Hooray!

We have a band!! Great wedding dance bands are crazy expensive. Like break-the-wedding-budget-in-half expensive. I mean, like my-eyes-just-popped-out-of-my-head-and-I-wanna-cry expensive. You get the point. But, I'm insanely lucky and I have some of the awesomest friends ever. (Yes, I'm aware that's not a word.) My ridiculously fantastically amazing friend Dara has agreed to sing at my wedding! Hooray! Here she is with her band in Las Vegas called HNLV:

It would be waaaay too expensive to fly her band to Seattle for our wedding, of course. I mean, really - they book fancy pants hotels/casinos in Vegas. They're big time!

However, we told Dara our budget, and she's offered to round up some folks she knows in local Seattle bands to play for us within our budget. She's making this happen by donating her services as lead singer as our wedding gift! How unbelievably terrific is that!? Plus, not only is she gorgeous and talented, she's a performer, you know?! Of course you know - you can see the video. If you want to hear more, (or you just want to boogie down to her music in private - don't worry, I won't tell) you can find Dara's YouTube page here and her website here.

One more big fat thing crossed off the list! We're looking to hire a pianist for the ceremony as well, but we have a resource for that already. Now we just need to find an officiant and I think almost all of the "biggies" will be crossed off the wedding to-do list. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy crossing things off of lists? I makes lists just to cross things off of them - yep, I'm one of those. This probably doesn't surprise many of you.

Things are really coming together and this is going to be one heck of a dance party!
