Wedding Updates

It's been quite a while since I've blogged about the wedding, so I thought I would share a few details today! We have a date in concrete, and as of yesterday a completely new location, which I don't exactly love, but it will all work out just fine. Initially we were supposed to have the wedding at Nate's parents lake house on the balcony, over looking the lake...gorgeous..right...yea...not so much anymore. The lake house is a little over 2 hours away from home, and between scheduling conflicts with our preacher, and the struggle of trying to plan in a location that's 2 hours away we just decided to keep it a little closer to home, so I'm hoping it still turns out how I've planned. The location we've booked has an outdoor "gazebo" type building...so we will plan to have the ceremony there, and the reception in the banquet room.
  • I've purchased a dress that I love, I can't wait for it to come in and me to actually be able to try it on in the correct size/color. It's a bridesmaid dress that I ordered in champagne, but it will work perfectly because I wanted something simple. 
  • We've decided what were going to do in place of a unity candle/sand...because we didn't really want either of those in our ceremony. 
  • I've purchased several pieces of decor that I think will be great with our "Country Chic" theme! Just think antique wooden crates, mason jars, galvanized buckets and lots and lots of gorgeous hydrangeas!
  • I've picked a cake style I love, and decided on a menu.
  • I've picked invitations, and decided on programs.
  • I've decided on one favor for sure, and am debating a second
I'm hoping from here on out there are no more bumps in the road...I still have a million things to do, but with the help of my 2 favorite girls, this should be no problem at all! Ultimately I just can't wait for it to actually be here, and I get to marry my best friend...
I love these hydrangeas in mason jars! This is the direction we're going with our theme! Country chic, right!? ;)
