Oh my goodness! Only 220-something days until David and I get married! It’s coming so fast but it’s taking sooo long at the same time. We’ve been busy saving all of our pennies and planning every detail of our wedding so that it’s everything we’ve dreamed of! I’m trying to savor every minute of the planning but it’s so easy to get caught up in the logistics of everything.
There’s quite a few things left on my to-do list, so I won’t bore you with the small details but there’s some pretty big ones I thought I’d share!
choosing the dinner menu
Our venue has a delicious restaurant on-site that will provide the catering for our reception. We still haven’t tasted any of our options yet, but we’re so excited! The options are really endless as the Landmark Restaurant tries to cater to every couple’s personal tastes. We’re doing our tasting in August!
First dance music
Oh goodness. This one will be tough. David and I love to dance (even though we can’t) and have a blast on the dance floor at every wedding! But at our own, we don’t know what our first dance song should be! David wants a country song, I want a Nat King Cole song. So combining our taste in music should be interesting. Either way, that first dance will be so special!
My dress is absolutely everything I ever wanted… but its way too big on me! I need to have it altered but the seamstress suggested I wait until the summer. That’s honestly perfect because I’m trying to drop a pound or ten (haha!) before getting it altered. I also need to choose a veil, shoes, and jewelry to compliment my dress so having all that taken care of by then will be perfect!
Choosing Bridesmaids Dresses
I’m so excited for this! I have a few dresses in mind that I’ll be sharing with my bridesmaids in a month. It’s difficult when you have a huge bridal party (8 girls!) and you have 8 different body types to dress. No one has the same body and making my bridesmaids feel comfortable in what they’re wearing is important to me!
I can’t wait to share more details with you in the coming months! I’m trying not to giveaway the entire wedding before it even happens (trust me, it’s so hard!) but I’ll share what I can!
