We just sent out our invitations and I’m so excited to start getting RSVP’s back!! How soon did they start rolling in for you? 

I’m picking up my dress in a week and a half for my bridal/boudoir photos. I’m still hoping to lose about 10 pounds before the wedding so hopefully I’ll have them take it in a little.

We just got our card box last week and we’ll be getting our guest book in another week. Yay details!

Here’s my list: 

Signage (menu/drink menu/welcome sign/itinerary for tables/exit/just married sign for car)
Buy cute lingerie and honeymoon attire
Rehearsal dinner dress and bachelorette dress
Place cards/escort cards
Buy sparklers 
Settle on centerpieces with the florist
Bathroom baskets
Buy items for welcome bags
Order food for day-of
Settle on groomsmen ties and Fiance

Yay for December brides! I cannot believe how close everything is. This time of year is always so hectic and goes by quickly. I still have…


First and final dress fittings and alterations (do not need much done)

Picking out my fiance’s tux

Creating a seating chart (blah…not excited for this) for the reception

Deciding on a guest book-any good ideas for this time of year?

Deciding who to invite to rehearsal dinner (all out of town guests? Just family from out of town?)

Deciding if I want a MUA…yay or nay? Any suggestions?


We’re close!
