Planning A Wedding: Where To Start

When I got engaged, I think I waited a full 24 hours before I started planning! I’m a planner at heart and I couldn’t wait to start the process, so I figured I would share my journey with the internet and help someone else get some pointers too.

WEDDING PLANNER:

I got mine from Kate Spade.  Kate Spade-Bridal Planner ($48.00)

I’m in love with it, it comes with all the information you need and even timelines of when you should start. I know there apps and websites where you can plan weddings, but I think it’s a nice idea to have a binder full of the process. It even has inspiration pages you can cut and paste on! A couple years from now it’s going to be great to look back and see everything all together. Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

WEDDING APPS/WEBSITES:

The Knot – The Knot is probably the app/website I use the most. If you’re more of a digital type of planner this one will be great for you.

It has checklists, vendors, guest lists, wedding websites and also a wedding vision quiz to help pinpoint what kind of style wedding for you, and even colors!

The Wedding Spot – The Wedding Spot is an amazing app/website that gives you estimated quotes from vendors. This really helps if you have a budget and what to know right away what kind of price you’re looking at because sometimes it can take days for vendors to get back to you.

INSPIRATION:

Pinterest – Pinterest is the best place to find wedding inspo, it’s full of wedding dresses, themes, flowers, days and everything you can think of to plan a wedding! It’s a MUST have while starting out to plan and figuring out your style. It may even help you come up with creative things to do for your own day.

I’m ENGAGED!

On November 9th everything changed.

So here’s the story!

I was home waiting for Chris to come home after going to see his parents. Being the annoying girlfriend I am, I decided to hide and wait for Chris to walk in and pop out and scare him. Haha! If you know us you know that I always try and scare him and I have waaayyy to much fun with it.

After I scared him to death we talked about our day and I didn’t think any thing of it. I changed into my Christmas pajamas 😑 and at that moment Chris started telling me all this sweet stuff about us and got down on one knee! I thought he was joking and was yelling that he better be serious, lol. Then the big question happened he asked me to marry him! My heart was pounding I was in shock and excited all at the same time. I said yes and he put this beautiful ring on my finger ❤️.

I’ve never been more happy in my life. I’ve always known that Chris was the one and I’m so happy to call him my fiancé and soon to be husband!

I can’t wait to document the progress of wedding planning and share the experience with everyone

Lazy Sunday 

Lately I haven’t been feeling inspired, maybe it’s this annoying weather I don’t know. But last week Chris and I did a mini shoot with our growing record collection! 

Hope this inspires you to jam out in a robe and collect some new music. Xoxo
