yeah, i said four..

The past four days of my life has been consumed with nothing but thoughts of all things wedding.  We had ups and we had downs, but I'm definitely happy to say, I'm glad those four days are behind us..  With 67 days until the big one, I'm ticking right along, well for the most part.

That room up there is the reception hall - it looks much smaller than it really is..  And those colors, not ours, its from another wedding.  I can't wait to show off our colors ♥

But as for things now checked off our wedding to-do list, we can now show the following items completed:
  • Bride's Cake  (3 different flavors)
  • Groom's Cake (1 flavor)
  • Dress completely fitted (fiasco I tell ya - more on that later)
  • Flowers (includes brides bouquet, toss bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, all the mens' boutonnieres including dads and ushers, moms wrist corsages)
  • Ceremony decor
  • Reception decor
  • Invites/Response Cards Printed and almost assembled
  • Bridal Hair Piece
  • My mom's attire
  • My Hair & Make-Up Arranged

Phew, I can tell you I feel extremely accomplished at this point, but we still have ALOT left!!   If you notice, we have FOUR cake flavors!! Yea I said four!  We just couldn't decide and it was in the budget, so what the hey, we took it.. I'm sure there was more we completed, but thats the big important stuff I can remember.  We still have...
  • Reception food & flatware (this including cups and silverware)
  • Flower Girl attire (yea I know!)
  • Guestbook
  • His ring (Am I that big of a procrastinator?? dudes are so much easier though!)
  • Officiant (yea I know, again)
  • Mail out the invites
  • Finish getting Bridal Gifts
Eeps, I'm sure I'm forgetting alot of things, but thats ok, I will eventually remember them.

Anyway, thats what I have for now folks.



  1. Hey Bethani! That is a really nice reception hall! Definitely a lot to work with in terms of space to decorate! Don't stress too much! I'd definitely start focusing on the food and find the officiant, but you still have a good bit of time!

    Enjoy these moments...they are the best!

    Hope you're following along on my blog for my wedding tips and advice! Would love to have you!

  2. Hi Bethani,

    Today I found two wedding blogs, perhaps you already know them, but you never know if you
    find some of the things still on your to do list on them, hope you are enjoying all the ticking of the boxes and for that beautiful weather, could you send some sunshine overhere please?

    Here are the weddingblogs:

    (they also have a market place, see website)



    Good luck!

  3. YEEHAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So exciting :D

  4. Wow! Congrats on getting ALOT done! That's awesome! :) I got my Guest Book done at Shutterfly.com... You can just upload and use your engagement pics.. They have deals all the time and it ships quickly... JUST an idea.

  5. You have tons done! Way farther than I was. Lists always help :)

    I'm a new follower and the blog is so cute!

  6. I'm in the midst of planning my wedding as well and I swear, every time I cross ten things off, another ten get added.

    Congrats though! Cute blog, too. :]

  7. You did get a long done! That's great!! Sounds like a lot of work but fun too....

  8. yay for wedding planning! As stressful as it was to plan, I do miss it! You only get to plan your [first] wedding once! hahaha by first I mean, well, of course you can renew your vows! haha I plan on doing it someday!

    Make sure you get that officiant soon! They can book up fast! Our friend did it for us. If nothing else, find a friend that you trust and have them do it for you! It's cheaper and you get a personal touch! If you need any ideas for writing your own vows/ceremony let me know, I have tons of resources!


thank you for stopping by!
you made my day.
