jerzgrlnmd :   sunshineglam :  Good luck to both of you! I HATE shopping; I would pretty much rather do anything else than go to the mall or somewhere else to shop for myself. Must be why I’m not loving figuring out all the little details. Haha.

Since both of you are working on your homes, if you’re near Catonsville, my Fiance works at the Lowe’s there and loves to help out people however he can. 🙂

loveeee those stamps! You two will be moving in before you know it. I recall when my Fiance and I decided I would move in at the end of March…it seemed soooooo far away but now it’s been about a month of living together. Time flies when you’re having fun (or planning a wedding lol)

jerzgrlnmd :  Thanks, the stamps are my favorite part of the invites, I am a sucker for the details.  Congrats on the 1st month! Last week I just wanted everything to hurry up but now I am ready to just enjoy the next few months.  LoL!

jerzgrlnmd :  So cool you saw a bee on SYTTD!

If you go to Lowe’s, my FI’s name is Mark, and he’s usually in flooring. 🙂

Hi Ladies!

its been a long time and a whirlwind of changes since my last post. I’ll have to do a full update but for now I’m popping in to ask past and future brides about their ceremony.

What are you planning? What special things are you adding? I know a 30 minute ceremony has become the standard but I don’t want to rush ours…I think we’re going to take a full hour but I know it needs to be timed and planned well. What are you most looking forward to in your ceremony?

tmpierson :  Can’t wait to hear about your updates! My wedding is 80 days away! I can’t believe it! Practically everything is planned at this point; we’re just deciding on a few small details, and we’ll be ready!

Anyway, we’re just doing the short 15-30 minute ceremony. Are you doing something religious? If not, what are you planning to do for an hour? I’m really looking forward to hearing my FI’s vows. (We’re writing our own.) I know I’m going to cry like a baby. 🙂

tmpierson :  congrats on all your changes!  Unfortuantely I am not going to be much help with the ceremony either, I want the shortest ceremony possible, I even think 30 minutes is too much.  I want to get to the party ASAP.  LoL!  Good luck on planning everything!

Hey!  Long time no update, we haven’t really done much though, I even went almost 2 weeks without talking to my wedding planner. I’ve been buying some things; our flower girl dress (pic below), tuxes for the ring bearers. I also bought hangers for the wedding party (pic below)and booked my boudoir shoot (more for me than him though) and my mom picked up our canvas for our guest book (pic below). I am also deciding on ribbon for my bouquet (inspiration pic below) and working with an illustrator to make an illustration of one of our engagement photos for thank you cards.  As you can tell I am really getting “deep in the weeds” with the details – but I live for this stuff!  We are now just 101 days away and invites are going out this week or next. How is everyone else?

  • Wedding: March 2018

You ladies are all getting so close to your date!  So exciting!  I’m not getting married until March 2018 so I’m still pretty far away!  So far, we’ve booked our venue, caterer, photographer, videographer, and DJ.  I also already have my dress!  My mom used to be a florist, so she’s going to do our flowers.  We’re also making our own save the dates so we’re still in the process of doing that, but we’re almost done.  Our engagement photos are scheduled for mid-June, so hopefully it won’t be unbearably hot.  

The events coordinator at our venue left about a month ago, and they haven’t found a replacement for her yet, so hopefully they will hire someone soon!

melissa17 :  congrats!  Our engagement photos were taken in the freezing cold and turned out great so I am sure you will be fine!  Congrats on making progress, things will start to move faster sooner.  Although I still feel like it is taking forever (we will be engaged a little more than 11 months once we get married in August).  Good luck!

tmpierson :  we get 30 mins for our ceremony and I want it to be quicker lol.  We don’t have a wedding party so that should help with time. We aren’t writing our own vows and will have a family members sing apart of a gospel song. That’s about it. What are you having in your ceremony?

As for updates, I got my dress for our engagement photos as well as some tshirts for our casual shots. We take those next weekend.

Excuse the mess I was also trying on shapers and heels lol
