Wedding Planning Update

When I went back home last month, I was more than successful for wedding planning.  With the exception of save the dates, I’m on a roll.  Once the big stuff is done (catering, venue and dress) then the less fun, smaller things will be the focus.  I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about my wedding and it’s obnoxious but my parents reminding me this is a once in a lifetime thing.  You are supposed to talk a lot about it.

So what have I done wedding wise?

First Tim and I picked out the venue.

We took engagement photos.

We found a wedding planner who has been nothing but help.

I have also knocked a few more things off my big to do list…

My parents and I went and tasted food.  Food as well as alochol has been an important factor for me.  Not because we want everyone to get drunk and forget about our wedding ceramony, but we want people to enjoy themselves.  We also want to have good food.

In the majority of weddings I remember:

Did I have a good time (DJ)? (or did I take a lot of photos in a photobooth)



Was there food good (food)?

Was there coffee (or alcohol)?

 I told the caterer that I would walk down the aisle in runderwear if it meant good food for the guests #sacrifice.

Long story short we were able to put together a menu and find some good food.

We also found a great DJ that I’m quite excited for, especially now that the song Anaconda by Nicki Minaj is out (has anyone seen that music video?   I dressed as Nicki Minaj from the video Superbass for Halloween senior year of college…I’m glad she hadn’t released this song).

Last but not least, I got a dress!

Wow, I’ve gotten a lot done.  I would like to think I can relax but I still have these Save the Dates to get out.  Wedding planning has been really fun and I’m enjoying this chapter of my life.

I suppose the final two big things we have to get done are flowers and wedding cake.  If anyone knows any florists in VA Beach area let me know.  I’m not a big fancy flower person (sorry they die anyways, I would rather go on vacation) but I do want and need some flowers.

Then all the smaller stuff like decorating but that’s why I gave that a solid 6 months to actually do.

Questions for you:

What kind of decorations did you do for your wedding?  Do you like flowers?

What were your favorite and least favorite parts of wedding planning?
