{Wedding Wednesday} Checklist Part 3

Bridal Image 2

Ya’ll we’re just 73 days away from the big day, but who is counting? I still can’t get over the fact that I’m getting married in a few months as I feel like we’ve been planning for ages. Speaking of planning, I’m all over the place with wedding things and not in a good way. I didn’t realize how emotionally draining it could be. Let’s talk a few different things, okay?

rehearsal dinner // This is probably making me more crazy than the wedding! I’ve been looking at a few different venues and a lot of them are out of budget in the immediate area surrounding our wedding venue.

hair trial // I’m trying to plan my hair trial appointment after I get my hair done this month, but I’m nervous about hair color and about looking like a boy with my hair pulled back. Humph! #roundfaceproblems?

details & signage // Being detailed oriented with this whole thing means that I still haven’t figured out welcome signs, table displays, and how to showcase the menu. I’ve been browsing pinterest and etsy for some easy DIY ideas. I also have no clue about what to do about cake decor and we are meeting with our baker and will have our tasting on Saturday. I’m hoping to get a few ideas out of meeting with them!

On the bright side, I just received my bridal shower invitation and I’m so excited! It will be lovely to be surrounded by such a wonderful group of close friends, family, and family friends.

I think I found my getting ready playlist for the morning of the wedding. I am looking forward to a lot of things on my wedding day, but I’m really excited for the getting ready portion with my bridesmaids and the mom’s!
