wedding planning


 
I just typed out this entire post and blogger wouldn't save...grrr! Anyhow...

I have been a terrible blogger...mainly because I have been trying to plan a wedding in 2 months! So far so good...aside from one major drama with the location yesterday. They were trying to pull a good-ol "bait and switch." We had to unleash a groom-zilla. It seems all is well now. Thank goodness. Wasn't sure what we were going to do. If we weren't getting married in a month we would have taken our business elsewhere. But I'm not going to let that blip ruin the fun I'm having planning. I have been enjoying it. Not stressing. I'm so excited but don't want time to go to fast. I want to take this all in.
I made the invites using Paper Source products: cardstock, Cottage Bloom stamp, and online templates. Printed them out on our home printer. They came out really nice. I found a dress off the rack at Lord & Taylor. It is a bit non-traditional but beautiful. And we foud my sister (my maid of honor) a salmon pink shift dress. Cary will wear his ASU (Army Service Uniform) and his best man will be in a suit. Our wedding will be overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and we will have a breakfast/brunch reception. Since we are paying for this ourselves we are on a very tight budget. I will be doing potted flowers for the centerpieces and making my own bouquet. The day before my parents are throwing us a rehearsal dinner BBQ. My mom is going all out with some fancy food. She is a wonderful cook.
Yesterday I ordered this for our sand ceremony...
It is called a Forever Frame and I really liked the idea of making our sand ceremony a more permanent memory in our home.

Today I have to order a photobook we made on Snapfish that will be our guestbook. It was fun putting it together with Cary looking through our years together. I also need to order a cake topper. We are having a very simple double layer sheet cake - strawberry shortcake from a local gourmet grocer. It is absolutely delicious! I am looking at this cake topper...


I just have to make sure it isn't too heavy for the cake. So I will order it and double check their return policy!

So it is all coming together slowly...

...or I should say quickly!

Happy Saturday!

Beautiful invitation Emily. I love the simple elegance of it. Your wedding reminds me a lot of ours. We planned simply, on a budget and with a lot of DIY elements. I had a few more months to plan but not much. And we were married in August too!
