Wedding Wednesday: The Final Prep

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Since everything is basically in place for the wedding (which is merely 2 months away now!), all that's left to do is final prep stuff and finalizing everything with each vendor. Of course there are always unforeseen things that go wrong while planning and probably the day of, so I've been trying to be as prepared as I possibly can and then let everything happen the day of, even if it's not exactly as I may have imagined.
Here's a small glimpse into what has gone on over the last 9 months of planning...

Ordered my dress!
DIY'd the guestbook
Hired a photographer
Bought my reception outfit
Ordered the Bridesmaids dresses and Measured the boys for Tux rentals
Of course there's a lot more that goes into planning a wedding than I ever imagined, but I've loved every minute and cannot wait to enjoy our actual wedding day! Hope you've enjoyed followed along on the journey so far too!

Wedding Wednesday: A New Life

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

As many of you married folks already know, planning a wedding is not the only thing that needs to be done when you get married. Since both my fiance and I both still live at home with our parents, we have a lot to do to prepare for married life. One of those things; Find a place to live.

Well thankfully this week we found out that we got the place that we really wanted, and we are so excited to move in April 1! Here's a few basic pictures from the listing but we're hoping to go back sometime in March to take some pictures and measurements so we can start buying furniture. Here's where the fun begins.
Now for the fun part; finding inspiration! I've been obsessively looking through websites such as Houzz, Apartment Therapy, and Freshome for ideas on decorating our apartment. Here's what I've got.

Party like it's your bachelorette!

Monday, February 20, 2012

This weekend we celebrated my bachelorette! It was great to spend time with all the important ladies in my life and enjoy a day of pampering and good food. Sam's sister did a great job planning everything perfectly and I couldn't be luckier to be gaining another sister like her.

Happy V-day

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I thought it'd be fun to do a little Then & Now.
Since I have been with my fiancé since I was a wee 17 years old, we have gone through a lot of changes together. These photos are from one of our very first dates (Darien Lake Amusement park) and our Engagement shoot. Oh how we have grown up. Hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!

V-day date night

Monday, February 13, 2012

Since I only see my fiance on the weekend, we decided to have our Valentine's date on Saturday this past weekend. We enjoyed a lovely dinner where we both ate way too much, and then went home and threw on the stretchiest pants we could find. It was very romantic. I didn't get an actual good picture of us, so unfortunately this grainy iPhone pic where I have one eye will just have to do.

Outfit: Living Dangerously

Monday, February 6, 2012

Have you ever been walking through the mall or down the street and you can feel eyes following you? I bought these bright blue pants (they're not as bright in real life) and took them out for a test run this weekend. My fiance was a little embarrassed but he got over it. I on the other hand was a little uneasy as I was walking around the mall feeling like I had a sign over my head that said, "I am wearing bright blue pants, look at me!". I'm not a daring fashion blogger, but I'm working on it.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Did you do anything dangerous or risky?
Scarf: n/a
