Hey guys! I wanted to share a little wedding planning update with you. I can’t believe it’s already July! Where is the time going?! Our wedding is in March so while we still have a good amount of time to go, I know how fast it’ll be here.
We hired a wedding planner to help us along the way and it has been SO helpful! Especially planning from afar. Our wedding is in New Orleans and not being able to be there all the time can be a bit difficult but our planner Natasha has been amazing! Before we hired our planner we used The Knot’s checklist to keep us on track and that’s super helpful as well.
We sent out our Bridesmaids and Groomsmen proposal boxes. You can check out the rundown here of how we created them! Luckily not one said no to the request 😉
We have secured some pretty major vendors, florist, lighting, and photographer and I’m obsessed with all their prior work! I wanted to share some photos with you of some inspo I have for our wedding. I’m definitely leaning with a neutral, bright color scheme and a lot of pretty greenery thrown in. Our venue is primarily outdoors with some of the food and cake inside. But the ceremony will be held outdoors as well as most of the reception.
We also sent out our Save the Dates and set up our wedding website! We created our Save the Dates through Minted and I love the way they came out. Our website is through the Knot and it was really easy to customize!
I did say yes to the dress! Ahhhh! I honestly could’ve bought a million wedding dresses, this part was so hard. I love my dress and can’t wait to see it again once it comes in! I’m an idiot and was so wrapped up in the excitement I never took a cute ‘I said yes to the dress’ photo in regular clothes haha. So when I go back for alterations I will definitely have to snap one of those for the memories of course!
Our checklist for this month is to secure a DJ. This is super hard because I loooove music and I definitely want everyone on the dance floor at our wedding. The DJ is such a huge part of the atmosphere at a wedding!
I’m also still trying to figure out bridesmaids dresses. I knew I definitely wanted some sparkle when it comes to my girls’ dresses and finding that has been tough while making sure the dress is flattering for everyone.
There’s still so much to plan but I’m lucky that David is so helpful and honestly 100% more organized than me haha. I think that has really made the process more fun and way less stressful!
I can’t wait to share more details along the way!
