I Went Wedding Dress Shopping.....

This weekend was a weekend full of so many emotions and events. Our moms and my sister were here for a visit, Justin had a show, we explored the city and last, we went wedding dress shopping. I've watched all the shows and movies - all the girls who've found the dress of their dreams, cried and knew that it was "the one". I never thought that could happen to me. I was sure I would find a dress I loved, I just didn't think the emotional part would hit me until my wedding day. But I was so wrong.

Wedding Planning Update: What We Have So Far!

I'm asked probably daily how wedding planning is going for Justin and I. And every time I say "well, we're pretty much done for now" I get the "what do you mean?!" response. So, I'm going to start this blog with a little disclaimer. I have NO IDEA why everything has been so easy for us in this process. I know I've said that in multiple blog posts, but it really has been such a breeze *knocks on wood*. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted for our wedding, so maybe that's why things have just fallen into place, but I decided to write a blog post to let you know some of the things we did and how we've gotten to where we are now in the wedding planning process.

Our Weekend in Gatlinburg + OUR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES!

When I first started writing this post, I was going to tell you about all of the awful things that happened to us on our trip to Gatlinburg/North Carolina this weekend leading up to our engagement photos. But as I started writing, all I wanted to do was get to the good part because the good part was just SO GOOD that it overshadowed every bad experience we had. So, instead of telling you about our awful hotel experience, the crazy things that happened to us in Gatlinburg on Saturday, and our even bumpier ride up to Max Patch Mountain, i'm going to tell you about all the amazing things that made this trip, and our photos, so amazing.

DIY Bridal Binder

I know i've said this before, but I am a planner and a stresser. To help me combat that stress and stay organized at home and at work, I make little notes on post-its or in my phone to help me remember things. When planning a wedding, it is so easy to get lost in all of the vendor emails, phone calls, appointments etc. so I've been doing a lot of research on finding the best bridal planner out there for me. I wanted very specific things - a checklist, places for me to write my own thoughts and ideas, a folder to keep my contracts together etc. While there are many, and I mean MANY wedding planning binders/books, none had everything I wanted, so I decided to make my own.
