6 Months to Go!

I don't know about you all but I'm excited to see Wednesday here again!

We now have less than 6 months until the big day -  actually 178 days, but who's counting...

I've been busy little bee bride lately, checking things off the list left and right!

I teased a little about these on Monday that Peter and I began our search for the perfect bling for our left hands. I've read quite a few places now that it's best to start that search 6 months out so that you give yourself enough time to look around or have something custom made! Of course we went on Saturday to start looking - Peter picked his ring in maybe 2 minutes tops, and I'm still debating my decision as we speak. We are wired SO differently! Here are some peaks at my options! Since my engagement ring is Tacori, they make it pretty simple by offering a (very overpriced) matching band to all their rings. That being said, I was also curious about some more eclectic options to add a little something extra to my left ring finger! What do you think?
I'm already 99% sure which one I'll be choosing, but that'll be my little secret for now ;-)

2.) FOOD
Arguably one of the best parts of the wedding! If you ask me, the food can really make or break your guest's experience on your wedding day! I could not be any happier with our choice of caterer and we met with her on Saturday to finalize our menu. We decided to go with 8 passed hors d'oeuvres (think all things mini),  3 different active food stations, and a dessert buffet to finish it all off! We're sticking to fresh, local, and seasonal foods. I'm still trying to come up with my choice for a signature drink - any suggestions are welcome! I'm thinking something light, refreshing, and possibly blush pink!

If you would have asked me when we first got engaged what I envisioned for our wedding day, I would have had a general idea. I've found that the idea I came into wedding planning with has changed and evolved as we finalize more details. I think I've finally honed in on what I want our day to look and feel like for us and our guests - and I'm quite happy with what I've come up with with our floral/decor team! Here's a little peak into what's inspired me as we get into the final stages...

There you have it! A little update into what's being going on at my wedding headquarters over here. I'm working on something for next week that entails some "rules" every bride should follow when planning their wedding! Comment below if you have some advice that every bride should follow and I'd be happy to include it.

Linking up for Wedding Wednesday!
Wedding Wednesday


  1. Your ring is gorgeous first. Second I love the look you are going for, very feminine but classic.

    Food is so important and it was something I stressed over, but our guests LOVED all our food which was so awesome to hear.

    For a signature drink have you thought of a madras? vodka, cran and orange juice, it's a pretty peachy color if mixed correctly. I also like dirty shirley's but that's just cherry vodka and grenadine which could make a mess. Maybe a light colored sangria?

  2. Your ring is stunning and looks great with bands. Loving that wedding cake and the rustic feel of the decor.

  3. I was so nervous about our food since our venue is doing the catering themselves. But we tasted it last week and it is AMAZING. I love all of it. There was only 1 thing we ended up changing and it was a minor thing. So so good! The tasting part is the best!

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. I love the middle double band! I am trying to convince G that I need one like that :) I can't wait to see all of your decor, those inspiration pics look amazing!

  5. Love the middle wedding band! Looks gorgeous on you!

  6. I love the first wedding band but all are beautiful!

    Your wedding inspiration is so lovely! I'm sure it will be a stunning day!

    I think the best advice is to remember every once in a while to step back and take it all in while keeping the important things in mind: the wedding is a big day, but the marriage is the most important part!
