We are less than 100 days away from the wedding!
So, like, now what!?
Well, there is still so much to do!
This weekend is my two bridal showers, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic – my next blog, I’ll share some info on those bridal showers!
Before the Saturday bridal shower, my makeup artist, Made Up By Celena Vada, is doing a trial run of airbrush makeup. Not necessarily my eyes, but just matching my incredibly pale skin tone. LOL! Trust me, it won’t change within the next 89 days.
But there is so much more to do than that!
I have to meet with people from church, meet with the pianist to pick music (HELP! I know nothing except that I want “Canon in the D” as the entrance song!), meet with our priest and photographer to finalize the timeline, update/print/send the invites, get my dress altered (which I have a feeling will take a while), have a hair trial run, get the liquor and marriage license, pick the rehearsal dinner menu, and more things!
However, I am cherishing and enjoying each step! A lot of my stress has gone away, and I’m enjoying being a bride.
A lot of other questions I get asked are about the fun trips!
Yes, I am going on a bachelorette party weekend – the new extravagant thing! We are going to Nashville the weekend of December 17th – partying our butts off, drinking way too many mimosas, and searching for the most perfect Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich! Woot woot!!!!
And, yes, we are going on a honeymoon! However, the honeymoon isn’t until July, as we didn’t want to mess with Dawson’s teaching schedule. When searching for the perfect cruise ship to board, there was one thing on my mind, “which one has a piano bar!” We cannot wait to drink all the tropical drinks (so, yes, we want to wait a while to have kids!!!), go to the piano bar, watch HGTV, and eat so much seafood!
I’m so thankful that I’m not planning a wedding and honeymoon all at once. I don’t think I could do it!
Now that I’ve given you a couple of fun details of what’s next…want a couple of hints at actual wedding details?
No? Well, then stop reading and peace out for the week!!!!
Yes? Okay, let me spill some tea!
My bridesmaids have trains! I’m pretty sure that’s unique, and I love unique.
The men’s outfits aren’t traditional at all, and I am obsessed.
Our reception entrance song has to do with finances, yet it’s a banger.
My flowers are ridiculous, and I couldn’t be happier about it!
The getting ready outfits are monochromatic for everyone and are different than any I’ve seen before!
There are four different centerpieces, and ¾ have DIY aspects to them!
Okay, I feel like that’s a decent amount of hints!!
For the past year or so, I’ve been so worried about the money aspect of weddings. With COVID, prices got more expensive, and our guest list grew like the Grinch’s heart…something I’ve been grateful for! Yet, I was so worried about being too extra or spending too much.
Now, after embracing it completely, I am totally okay with however much we spend – knowing we still won’t go into debt for it. This has always been my dream, and if this is what I want, I deserve it!
Now that my mentality has shifted, I am so, so excited to be incredibly extra and make my Hallmark dreams come true.
And I am so, so, so excited for this weekend with all my family. Girl time is my fav time!!
Have a great week, friends! I think it’s the finale (or almost finale!) of Only Murders in The Building, so that’s already a great time!!
