Wedding planning era

14 July 2023

 Hi, friends! It has been a little more than a month since J and I got engaged, and since then we have:

  • chosen my Man of Honor
  • pencil-booked the venue
  • enlisted our chosen officiant
  • inquired with an event stylist
  • booked a photographer
We dropped by our chosen venue the weekend after we got engaged

We are still 47 weeks away and it feels too far, but I know days fly by especially when the -ber months come, so we shouldn't chill too much.

This weekend I am looking at checking the printers and printing houses recommended by friends and strangers in the Facebook Groups I asked in, as we are thinking of going the DIY route when it comes to designing and printing our save the dates, invites, wedding programme, menu cards and place cards, et cetera. We'll mostly do evites but would still love some print copies, while we might have the wedding programme printed professionally as we would need a bunch to distribute on the day of the wedding.

My friends Ashley and Sarah will also accompany me to a bridal fair this coming Sunday. My goal is to look for an HMUA, a tailor for J's suit, and a seamstress for my dress. J is away on a company trip and the next bridal fair won't be until February, so it's best to go this weekend as February might be pushing it. 

I've also started choosing flowers for my and my bridesmaids' bouquets.

Floriography by Jessica Roux has been very helpful!

This evening while I was washing the dishes, ideas for my vows just came rushing to me that I had to hurry up so I could type them down. That's more than half of my vows done. :)

I am so excited. :,)
