Guys, it’s April 13th and we’re just three months away from our wedding day! When we first got engaged in November and picked July as our month, it felt far away. I’m here to tell you two things: 1) time goes by faster and faster each day you get older and 2) wedding planning, living life, working, and planning for your future with your soon-to-be spouse makes said time go by at 4x fast forward speed. Basically, I feel like I’ve lived one month in about 5, so it’s wild to me that we’re at the 3-month mark.
We’ve made some really great progress in just the last couple weeks!
My sister was in the city with me yesterday and I found my wedding shoes! I tried these on at Nordstrom and was impressed with how comfortable they are. They also look great on and you can’t beat that price tag! They’re easily a pair of heels that I would wear again, as well.
I think we’ve decided on ties and pocket squares for Mike and his groomsmen…which has been a process. Stores don’t always have a ton of great options, so we were having a hard time finding something we liked that he could try in on a store with his suit. As Kate and I were walking around yesterday, we found The Tie Bar and popped in. There were so many great options and I was able to pick out a few things for Mike to try on at home.
We had our tasting at the beginning of April and were all so happy with the food! Having good food is definitely at the top of our priority list, especially since we get to choose who our caterer is, so we’re very happy with the company we’re working with. It was the first tangible thing we’ve done and it made the whole thing even more real.
Our honeymoon is booked!!! YES.
I mentioned on Instagram that we’ve been working with Heather, of Heather Christopher Travel, to book our trip. Mike and I have never planned a trip to Europe and weren’t really interested in adding that to our list of to-do’s, so Heather took care of everything for us. She’s been an absolute dream to work with – being flexible and accommodating, but also showing her expertise in her recommendations and suggestions. If you have a honeymoon, European vacation, or family Summer vacation on your mind, I totally recommend working with her.
We will be flying to Paris, spending 3 days in the city, and then heading over to Italy, where we’ll spend the remaining 9 days. In Italy, we’ll be staying in Florence, Tuscany (where we’re doing a cooking class and I CANNOT WAIT), Rome and finishing the trip on the Amalfi Coast. Mike and I are both so excited!
This week’s goal is to order wedding invitations!
