  • Wedding: September 2017 - Ceremony and Reception: Historic mansion on the water


Wedding Planner/DOC


Wedding dress

BM dress


STDs (but not yet sent)


In Progress:




Hotel room blocks

I am quite happy where I am in the planning.  My WP is keeping me on schedule although I am on it myself.  While working on the above I am also gathering ideas for my cake, makeup/hair looks, thinking about my guest list, booking the wedding night suite, song lists, and BP gifts.  Really I am just working on everything at the same time.  LOL!

  • Wedding: September 2015 - Contemporary Art Center of Peoria

Done: venue, colors/scheme, my dress, bridesmaid’s dresses

In Progress: photographer, caterer, videographer, linens/centerpieces, invites/STDs, calligraphy, flowers

I feel okay-ish. Some days I feel great, like I’ve done so much. Other days I feel like I haven’t done jack sh*t. FI says it’s a good middle point. We haven’t fallen behind, but we need to keep checkin’ things off to stay on track. 

I’m worried about the holidays! I think it’s really going to put me behind. I need to get ahead on planning so I can not worry about wedding during thanksgiving & christmas..

  • Wedding: October 2015

Done: Found my future husband   In progress: Everything else, aahhh!!

I feel so behind! We’ve just started planning, but we really want september 2015 so now we’re looking at venues and churches. I’m a little stressed out! But as soon as those two are booked (and we have a photographer), I’m sure planning will go from stressful to fun! 

My family and FH even thought it was wayyy to early to start planning now. Haha.
