Our Wedding // Wedding planning

February 24, 2015

One of my many Pintrest boards for our wedding. You can see more of it here.
When I first started blogging two years ago, I could not wait to get engaged so I could blog about the whole thing. I swear, I wrote post drafts fantasizing about what I would actually write when I was wedding planning (embarrassing). I made board after board on pintrest about my dream weddings, which, by the way, I had many dream weddings, so my pinning it was quite obsessive. When I actually got engaged, life was crazy busy and I was overwhelmed. I sifted through my pintrest boards, trying to find my style and create a vision for our day, but there were just too many dang choices. There were too many vendors to choose from, from photography to caterers to florists, as well as design layouts and napkin colors and decor ideas and guest favors. Pintrest became my worst nightmare. I changed my mind every other week and gave my planner (who was thankfully my best friend and had to love me no matter what) a heart attack whenever he saw my number pop up on his phone. Not to mention, I was THE BIGGEST control freak. Like, I redid my to-do list every day, emailed my family with weekly to-do lists, and would spastically freak out when I forgot to do a significant errand or was behind on my "list" (that damn list....). We chose a style "relaxed garden party" (It sounds ridiculous, I know) and after months of feeling overwhelmed by decisions I knew I just had to trust that it was going to all work out. And in the end, the day was more beautiful and perfect than any Pintrest board I could have ever imagined.

I can't wait to finally document my wedding planning process because even though it's only been six month since our wedding, if feels like it was years ago and I don't want to forget any of it.


  1. The party planning pro is extremely responsive. I'm pretty sure he has a hundred weddings/events to coordinate at any given time, but still manages to respond to me within a few hours. I can tell what's on my mind to him straight and he won't get offended.
