My last wedding update was exactly a month ago, so today’s post is right on schedule! I’ve got some big news for this Wedding Wednesday: I SAID YES TO THE DRESS! Officially, anyway. I found the dress I knew I wanted awhile ago, but I wanted to go back to LeAnne’s Bridal in McKinney, TX to order it because I loved the store and the people that work there so much. It’s been ordered and we are on our way with the planning process! Here’s what’s new and what I’ve been working on lately:
-We have most of our rentals selected and ordered. We aren’t completely finished because we are still trying to compare prices, but we recently got my plates and a few other decor items squared away at Loot Vintage Rentals. We still need to finalize our silverware, wine glasses, napkins, tablecloths, chairs, a bar, and a stage for the band… So we can’t cross this off the list quite yet. But it’s coming along!
-I am currently in the process of finalizing my ‘save the date’ cards with a company that I’m really excited to share with you guys! More info to come on this sometime soon.
-I have been to two cake tastings now, but have yet to find the perfect cake. Y’all know I’m all about the food so I’m pretty picky! I really want something other than plain vanilla and plain chocolate, and that’s proven to be rather hard to find. I do have one more tasting set up at Michelle’s Patisserie for today so wish me luck! They have 4.8 stars on Wedding Wire so I have high hopes. Check my Instagram stories to see how it goes!
-I have an appointment set up at Bella Bridesmaids to go look at bridesmaids dresses. Now that I’ve found my dress it’s time to find the perfect one for my girls! I’m looking for something most likely in the blush pink color family, and I want it to be flattering for everyone. There are so many different options out there but hopefully it isn’t quite as overwhelming as the wedding dress hunt.
Next on my agenda is finding a hair and makeup artist I’m scouring Wedding Wire to find someone with good reviews! I think there are also a few showers in my future, so that’s something to look forward to in the midst of all the planning. Wedding planning is fun, but overall it is way more work than I ever anticipated. Getting my dress ordered at LeAnn’s Bridal was definitely a step in the right direction though! Stay tuned for more updates!
