Wedding Update Wednesday

The only thing I've really done is found some information for honeymoon, and am booking an appointment with a travel agent to see if it's feasible for us to even afford right after the wedding (FI wants to do it right away, but I want to wait a few months...).

How about you guys??

Re: Wedding Update Wednesday

  • Picked out bridesmaid dresses. We're going with this design in deep purple:



    Started researching invitations. I came across beautiful designs and talented graphic artists on Etsy. My plan is to purchase a design suite that I like for invitations, programs, etc. and then have them printed elsewhere. I discovered Catprint which looks like a high-quality, reasonably priced online print house.
  • FI agreed to do the first look photos!  I typed up a preliminary time line for our wedding day.  I'm super organized, so it's pretty exciting to see everything written out by the hour.  I have 3 major things to get done in January :  BM dresses, GM suits, and invitations.  Hopefully I'll be able to update with these checks soon!

  • I actually got all our invites, envelopes, and response cards printed. We bought a DIY kit from Michaels, and I love how they turned out.  

    This weekend, FI is going with his BM, and a groomsman to pick out tuxes. I'm really excited about this, not sure why!

    Finally picked out a favor. Yankee Candle votives in all different scents (FI and I just came to the realization we are OBSESSED with Yankee Candles, but come on, who isnt?!)

    Lastly, BM dresses were ordered last thursday! 


    Things are moving along so well, I am so happy!

    In the baby carriage! 
  • I started addressing our STD's a couple days ago. I also picked out plates, napkins, and some decor for my shower. Other than that, haven't done too much! I'll get more planning done once the holidays are finished!

  • Thanks, mek! We had picked out a different design but decided to go shopping once more. I loved that one the second my Maid of Honor put it on.
  • Chelsea are those dresses chiffon?  Whats the designer? If you don't mid sharing...

    I want long, flowy chiffon, I had been thinking strapless but a few girls are saying they might prefer straps, which I'm finding much harder to come by.

  • Hey Meagan - The dress is chiffon. It's part of Jordan Fashions new spring line. It's available in a ton of colors. I'm going with deep purple and have 3 or 4 shades to pick from.

  • My only update for the week is that my dress came in and I went to try it on! I was getting anxious because I still glance at dresses from time to time and was starting to second guess my choice because it had been so long. But the second I put it on I was so relieved... so in love with it! phew Laughing
  • I only have one update-My bridesmaids gifts came in!

    I got them each a locket with their initial on it. I'm going to put a picture of the two of us in it. The plan right now is to keep it a surprise and have my florist wrap it around their bouquet. I hope they like them!
