wedding report, 46 days out...

Wedding planning is CRAZY. And I feel like I'm losing my mind a little, to be completely honest. Who would have thought that planning a wedding would be this stressful? Not me, that's for sure.

But it's good to know that 46 days from today I will be happily married to Michael and will never, ever consider bridesmaids outfits, color combinations or reception food again. At least until my own kids get married... But that is not going to be for a very, very long time.

But for those of you who are curious (ahem... Rachel) I'll let you in on the progress :)

The announcements: Printed! My dear mother is working on addressing them.

The pictures: That's a different story. We are redoing them on Friday. If you haven't already noticed, I have included a few for your viewing pleasure...

The venue: Eldredge Manor in Bountiful, UT. This place is gorgeous.

The cake: stiiill in the works... But will no longer be in the works as of this Saturday at 10am. Let's just say that it is going to be a.w.e.s.o.m.e. Just wait and see.

The dress: purchased! And I love it!

The colors: revamped. For maybe the fifth time... Originally they were shades of yellow and grey, but then I bought an ivory dress. Whoops! So the colors then became coral and grey. But I was so in love with yellows that I decided to change it back to yellows for about a day. After realizing that ivory and yellow really wouldn't work together, I settled back on coral and grey. But then! Genius in the form of my little sister Maddie (Maddie of my last post) Suggested adding turquoise. Wow. Perfect. So Tiffany Blue (not quite turquoise) was added as an accent color. And guess what, I love the combination. I have heard complaints from every female in my family and Kennan via email from California, but I think they are great.

What's next on the docket? I'm glad you asked.


I have been looking forward to doing this for weeks. Fun.


Valentine's Day :)

I already hacked into Michael's laptop and made a list of my Valentine's Day expectations (they include him not working & sappy love letters).

When I got engaged I was all about "keeping it simple" and "not stressing about anything". Ha.

I am stalking your blog. :) I love you, love your pictures, and love your wedding plans. Good luck with everything! I do not envy your wedding planning responsibilities right now. Nope.

Love it! Thanks for the update :) You'll be glad you put so much thought into it, I wish I would have put more effort into my wedding. I was just like GET ME MARRIED and didn't care about the details.

Have I told you how excited we are for you???!!! Your pictures are adorable and we just love you to pieces! We were going to road trip it to your wedding, however that happens to be the same weekend that my step brother and his wife are flying in from New York and the entire family is gathering in San Francisco. I'm sad to miss your big day. You will be beautiful!
