Oh my goodness! I’m may 30, and i have like nothing done, it’s so discouraging. I’m like just all ideas. 

We were talking yesterday about having the wedding in my parent’s backyard, we’re going small, casual – do it ourselves wedding. We have a lake in the backyard, so having the ceremony on the lake would be gorgeous.

But I don’t even have a dress. I haven’t found anything I love in my price range (but of course I fell in love with a st. pucchi dress, at 8k!!)..

We’re going to make our own wedding invitations, and my brother said he’ll pay for our flowers because his wife’s mom works at a flower market.

I have to go and make reservations on rentals because our wedding is memorial weekend – we need to rent chairs, tables and a tent.

I have my bridal party, I have my order of ceremony – but really I don’t have much…aghhh. and reading how much you all have done is overwhelming!


Oh. and I have a photographer (my sis in law is a professional photographer!!), and my grandma is making our cake.
