Wedding countdown – 13 more days!
I can’t believe it’s August already, and my wedding is in less than 2 weeks!! We’re definitely scrambling a bit right now, trying to nail down all the final details and make sure everything is in order, so it’s becoming almost impossible for me to take time out to blog! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that we made our own invitations and place cards to save on costs. Since we didn’t have a printer at home, we just sent the designs to CatPrint my bridesmaids helped put me together and address everything. Yay for teamwork and DIY! I adore Kate Spade shoes, especially for weddings. The feminine bow elements is right up my alley, and I like how they have varying height heels. I’m not trying to break my ankles by wearing 3+ inch heels all day long! Amazon had a sale a while back so I was able to buy these at 40% off retail! My bridal + bridesmaids bouquets got delivered this week, and I’m so in love with them!! I knew right from the start I didn’t want fresh flowers – it’s such a shame to spend so much on gorgeous flowers only to toss them away in a couple days! Instead I went with real touch + silk flowers from Songs From The Garden, which look, feel, and even smell just like the real thing. And they’ll still look beautiful years after the wedding :D So this isn’t totally wedding related, but I have to give my planner a shout out because it has been what’s keeping me on top of everything these past few days! Putting things on my phone is hopeless, so this is the only system that really works for me. Besides, it’s fun to decorate the pages and take a break from all the wedding craziness! It’s unlikely I’ll be able to blog again until after my wedding (08/16) since I’ll be gone next week for my bachelorette party. Hope you all have a great weekend!
