84 days…

Time is flying by so fast, we have just a under 3 months before the wedding.  Things are coming along so far so good.  We ordered out invitations last week, hopefully they will be done within the next week and will be sent out by the second week of August.  We went to see a few florists, and I think we found the one we’re going to use.  We have one more appointment tomorrow, then we will make our decision.  I got my wedding shoes this week!!  Still waiting in the mail for them (I got two pairs >_< )… hopefully they fit well and are comfortable….but who am I kidding.  Even if they’re not comfortable, I’ll still wear them.

Anyways, I just wanted to share a few websites that have helped me along the way with the planning, to give me ideas for the wedding.

Weddingbee- I am currently obsessed with this website.  There is a forum where people can discuss anything wedding related (and not wedding related) – I love forums.  They also have a great DIY section for anyone adventurous enough to DIY their wedding things.  There is a classifieds section where people sell their wedding supplies after they’ve used them for the weddings.  They even have wedding dresses there!

Pinterest - For those of you who have not caught the Pinterest bug, try it out…it’s so addicting.  This has been a great way for me to organize wedding ideas that I’ve seen online.  I gave my bridesmaids access to my board so that they can “pin” things that they think would be good for the wedding to the board.  It’s also great for finding ideas and websites that other brides have found – they have a section just for weddings.

Etsy - Can I just tell you how much I love this website, not only for the millions of wedding items they sell on here, but for pretty much anything you can think of.  If you know me at all, you know that I having things that are different (that no one else has), and Etsy is the perfect place to find these things.  They have everything from invitations, to wedding gowns, to veils, to jewelry (I love their jewelry).  And I love the idea of supporting artists who aren’t mainstream.

Ruffled - I came across this website on Pinterest.  What I really like about this website is that it reminds me of my favorite store, Anthropologie.  A lot of their posts feature vintagey style weddings.  They also have a DIY section, along with a real weddings section (where you can get ideas from other people’s weddings), photo galleries, and a recycle your wedding section, where people sell their used stuff.

As you can probably tell, all I ever do these days is look online for anything wedding related.  So many things to help a bride out…what did people do when internet didn’t exist?  =D  Til next time… thanks for reading!

105 days…

Hi everyone!  A little update on the wedding plans for those of you who follow our blog.  *Whew*  Time is flying by and we only have 105 days left until the wedding.  Things are coming along well.  Actually, we haven’t really done anything in the last few months because we (actually, it was just me) were so OCD about finding and booking vendors back in January.  As we get closer to our date, I’m getting more and more nervous.  Not about the wedding itself, but just getting all of the payments together, the weather (since our ceremony will be outside), and just fixing up all the little details.  The only major things we have left to do are look for a florist and order invitations.  Not too bad, but we really have to get on the ball with looking for a florist.

One exciting thing that recently happened – my dress finally came in last week!!  I ordered it in February and it came in last Thursday.  So excited to see my dress since the dress I tried on at the salon was about a size too big on me.  The bridal salon won’t let me have a fitting until August, so I have to be a little more patient and wait.

Anyway until next time… :)  Thanks again for visiting our blog!
