wedding countdown

I can’t believe our wedding is less than 2 months away! If you are familiar with the knot, you know those annoying emails that come, proclaiming “Two Months to Go! Here’s what you need to do!” I delete it because it stresses me out and then end up going directly to the website so I make sure I’m not missing anything. :)

Last weekend was my bridal shower and bachelorette party with my good friends and we had a blast! It was wonderful having a weekend with my closest friends!


Onto the other wedding details…


Although our tasting was months ago, we still haven’t made any final food decisions. (I’m sure the knot will send me a reminder any day now.) Between me and you, I’m kind of thinking that they might come out with new menus for summer/fall and it would be just horrifying to decide without all of the available options, don’t you think? We have started to narrow it down however.


Are finally decided on! After loving one, ordering another, canceling the order, loving another one all in about the time span of 72 hours, a decision was finally made – just in the knick of time and they went out last week. Do you know how expensive paper is? (I’ll never tell my Dad, buwhaha)


Apparently I don’t excel at making decisions. Like the invites, before I knew what happened, I had ordered 5 different dresses, finally trying on “the one,” making a decision – and then moving on to shoes and jewelry, which are almost done! Hint: it’s an everyday designer and was the least expensive “major” item purchased!


The venue is grey and white so we are using a splash of color with magenta flowers. I can’t wait to see them!



Because we aren’t getting married in a church, we have to really hash out a lot of the ceremony details on our own and it has now moved to the top of our priority list! The fun part is that we can add our own twist, and really have a blend of religions and cultures.

And that leads me to today – with a long to-do list and a teensy frazzled feeling, I’m starting to get really excited for this wedding! (The one that is in 52 days, not that I’m counting or anything) :)

      No, I originally looked at and tried on JCrew dresses and loved a bunch, but they just weren’t “right!”

    I bet if we surveyed we’d learn that food bloggers decide on the food last. :) Better to have an out of season color than a boring menu! Ha, ha! Congrats and enjoy these final days of planning. Tha venue is gorgeous!

    All your plans sound amazing! One of my favorite things about wedding preparation was getting to spend so much time with my nearest and dearest, all in one place (at showers, bachelorette, etc).

    Enjoy! It’s a blast and stressful at the same time, but it’s a beautiful transition in life. My in-laws got married at the beach club and I’ve coordinated a few events there. I used to be a wedding planner here in the cities, so let me know if you need any last minute referrals!
