Something every girl dreams about… I found my wedding gown! I was so excited to have my bridesmaids, mom, and future mother-in-law there to help me make this decision. I will be wearing a dress designed by David Tutera, my favorite celebrity wedding planner. There will be no peaks until the big day, but I can’t wait to wear it as I walk down the aisle to the love of my life. I said “yes” to the dress!
With all the business of finishing my student teaching, there are a few exciting things I have not been able to share yet. Don’t worry, I am catching up now. First, we had a very special engagement party where we got to introduce our bridal party. It was Coca-Cola themed after our favorite drink as a couple. For our entire relationship, when we were celebrating something, we drank a bottled coke together. Since we are celebrating beginning our lives together, we thought we would share our tradition with friends and family.
I have been very busy student teaching, but I wanted to share an update in our planning. On Sunday we attended the Bridal Extravaganza downtown. The bride, groom, all of my girls, our moms, and the best man got to come with us! We were probably the biggest, craziest bunch there, but that’s what made it fun.
While we were there, I had my first experience trying on wedding gowns. We didn’t find “the one”, but it was fun to look!
Most of us ate WAY too many cake samples that day. But there were so many designs, flavors, and fillings. It was so fun to try them all!
Another of our favorite things was the photo booths. We would all pile in and take pictures together. Although it was not in our original plans, we decided to go ahead and book one since we had so much fun! So be prepared to take a lot of photos at the reception!
Last update- We also had our engagement photo session yesterday. I should get some proofs soon. I cannot wait to see how they turn out!
Ok, this is something I never dreamed could happen. Today, our proposal story and photos were featured on the Disney Wedding Blog: Magical Day Weddings. I don’t think you understand. I have followed this blog for YEARS! My two very favorite things: Disney and weddings. It is always something to brighten my day. And now, I’m on there! This is so special to me. I have to thank my wonderful fiancé and friends and family who gave me a dream proposal absolutely worthy of this honor. Plus, now I can go pin them on all Pinterest!
They said yes!!! Today I got to ask my girls to be my beautiful bridesmaids. Lucky for me, they all agreed. I am so glad, because this special day would not be the same without them. It was so fun to make these hangers for each of them. They are going to make some great dress pictures!
So yesterday, me and the fiancé got to go look at our first wedding venue! It was so exciting, I couldn’t take it. Poor Stephen, dealing with me tearing up over everything lol. But still, it was a wonderful experience touring the place. I’ve done my homework online, so I was already pretty set on the place going in. The tour was better than I had hoped though! The staff was great, the facilities gorgeous, and the drive was long but lovely. I’m going to make a call to their required caterer, but I’m thinking we will be booking it soon! How does July 20th, 2014 sound? I think it sounds like it will be the happiest day of my life.
It’s finally happened!!! I’m engaged to the love of my life. 💍💕 So now it’s time to begin planning the wedding! Just kidding, that started when I was 5. But now, it’s time to start putting all of those plans into action and that’s what this blog is all about. I’m wanting to keep this as a record for me to look back on, as well as share the journey with anyone who wants to join me. So, here’s to beginning my happily ever after!#justengaged #weddingplanning #happlilyeverafter
