I know, I know it’s Thursday but whatev. After my sad but real post yesterday I thought I d come here and write about something much happier – the wedding! I think I’ve mentioned before I was not one of those girls that had been planning my day for as long as I can remember or anything like that. To be honest, the last wedding I’ve been to I was the flower girl and I was seven. So to say I didn’t even know how to plan a wedding would have been an understatement. I didn’t even know exactly what happened at a wedding!

Thank God I found this awesome wedding planning checklist which saved me so much research and stress. I printed it out and made a cute little binder and it’s been really helping me know what to do next. So I just thought I’d drop by and share a little bit about what I’ve been planning, the general theme (rustic) of the wedding and what we’ve done vs what we’ve still yet to do.

To start I thought it’d be a good idea to share a “mood board” I believe they’re called.

The more I plan, the more excited I get. Those are actually the bridesmaid dresses that I chose, they’re going to alternate colors and I just love that idea. I’m just so excited for the day to be here and all the planning to be done. So far I’ve gotten probably not as much done as I should.

Venue
Caterer
Photographer
Dress
Bridesmaid Dresses
Groom’s Suit
Groomsman Suits
Cake
Flowers
Centerpieces

To see a lot of the BIG things like the venue, photographer, and my dresses crossed off makes me feel better but there’s still so much to do! We basically have found a caterer, we just need to finalize it and I have done a lot of research for the cake, flowers, and centerpieces so I’m happy about that. I can’t wait to be able to check off some more things for sure though. It’s going to be here before we know it. 4 months and 1 day!

This post was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be to write. I think I may just do it again sometime soon 😉

  • That sounds like a lot of fun and a lot of work! The bridesmaids dresses are so pretty! I like the alternating colors, that is a nice touch. What does your dress look like out of curiosity? Also that checklist is so long. I had no idea so much planning went into that kind of stuff, but then again I’ve never been to a wedding before or ever thought about weddings in general.

    • Haha right isn’t there so much to plan for?! I never knew either but that cheklist is a LIFESAVER let me tell you lol. My dress it kind of hard to explain, but it is strapless (which I never thought I would have bought) with a diamond belt type thing. It also fits in with the rustic feel because of the print on it.

      • That checklist seems like it’s a life saver haha. The dress sounds so pretty! Post a pic?

        • let me figure out if I can message you it 🙂 My fiance reads my blog sometimes so I just don’t want him to see it!

          • Oh okay, go to my blog and you will see my email, send it through that

  • I love that cake!!
