I’ve been promising some updates on the wedding planning…kind of a cheesy post, don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉
Planning a wedding is like planning the biggest party of my life.
Which may sound incredibly stressful to some, but I’m so fortunate to have so many people to help. Not to mention that I love party planning. Obviously the Taster is part of every decision (most of them at least 😉 ) and our families and friends have been beyond wonderful, amazing and SO helpful. It makes me feel very grateful and so fortunate to have so many wonderful people in our lives.
The last few weeks have made everything feel so real. Up until now, we’ve mainly been thinking about the big picture. But then my Mom, Amy (Tasters Sister) and I went dress shopping in Chicago and I think I found my dress – I’m very indecisive so I’m going to order it and then try it again Dress shopping was so much more fun than I expected. I guess I’m not sure what I expected…what could be better than a weekend in Chicago with the two sole tasks of shopping and eating? Mom, want to go back?
The invites are 75% decided on, hair ideas in the works, and hotel, shuttle, musicians and makeup artist booked. Our ceremony, which will be held at the reception site is something however, that I really need to start focusing on. If you have any amazing ideas, please let me know! I just had a dream the other night that I forgot to plan the ceremony so I’ll take that as a sign to start planning!
Our photographer, Brandon M Sweet, is amazing and just what we were looking for in a wedding photographer – and I’m so excited for our wedding pictures after seeing our engagement ones!
We have yet to even talk about the food, although we are leaning towards stations and not a sit-down dinner. I kind of want to have macaroons for dessert or maybe an ice cream bar, but all of those details have yet to be discussed and worked out. Do you like the traditional route of cake for dessert or something with a twist?
And I’m sure this will sound completely vain, materialistic, and fill-in-the-blank with whatever you want, but I’m also really looking forward to registering for some fun kitchen toys. I would totally be lying if I tried to say I wasn’t.
It’s becoming more and more real by the day, and although I know our life won’t change much after September 17, I can’t wait to marry my best friend.
Hopefully you were able to follow that post…more to come!
