- Wedding: April 2013
Just wanted to share our planning and current stress with the wedding being 55 days away! (gasp)!
As far as venue, we booked Longan’s place back in December for our small wedding of 72 people (including Mr. Tuned and I). It’s a beautiful new-ish venue by Homestead Miami, with a bridge over a koi pond with a waterfall in the background for the ceremony, a tiki hut for the cocktail hour and an indoor venue for the reception. The prices was fantastic, so besides it’s beauty, it was very affordable. The owner, Julio has been an EXTREME pleasure to work with on every detail of the wedding. I am definitely looking forward to see it all come together.
I bought my dress in December at David’s Bridal (future post spoiler) and have had absolutely NO DRESS REGRETS, thus far. Although, I do cringe when I see a beautiful french lace gown but with a price tag of 5k+ to those beauties, I knew it wasn’t something I would be walking down the aisle in anyhow.
Now, I am facing the usual bridal issues of what shoes to wear, what bracelet, etc. I am definitely not a traditional type of bride and do lean towards the vintage/whimsical feel for things. I’ll put it this way, it took me 3 months to find the right shoes to wear for our engagement pictures (another future post spoiler- trust me these babies deserve their own post lol).
My biggest slacking area with all of this is that I have NOT, and I repeat have NOT sent out my invitations yet. Hopefully they will be going out by Wednesday, but let’s see how that plays out. I swore I would send them out by the end of January but then decided I wanted nicer envelopes, which then turned into ordering vintage stamps to go with the nicer envelopes; which turned into adding bling to the invitations to match the nicer envelopes and vintage stamps (phew).
I am stressed just writing this! As soon as they go out I will post pictures of the lilac spring vintage glam invitations (that’s what I am calling the theme, and I’m sticking to it haha).
