Soooooo I realized that it has been a LONG while since I've updated you guys about how my wedding planning is going. Well I didnt really have too many pleasant things to say about wedding planning, LOL! I didn't want to come on here and rant so I just stayed away from blogging about it...and kind of fell off blogging all together. I even found it hard to log on to my beloved WeddingBee account for about 3 months and that is my haven on all things weddings!! Needless to say I wasn't in the greatest place. What was the issue you ask? Well first and foremost I realized my fiancee and I had a LOT on our plate with planning this humongous wedding, house searching, holiday shopping, jobs, family, etc...it just got to be a tad overwhelming. Second of all we noticed that the budget we had just was NOT enough for what we want to do, that was the hardest part for me because it really forced me to take many steps back and reevaluate EVERYthing. We met with our planner who really helped to put things in perspective and offer us some really good advice. After that my Fiancee and I prayed, we fasted, and asked God to just take control and have his way in our lives. So now we are pressing on in a positive direction and I have NO doubt in my mind that God will be glorified on the day of our wedding!!
Now fun stuff!! I'd say the best part of wedding planning is being able to create things that are a reflection of you and your fiancee. For instance, I know it seems corny but I really had a LOT of fun making our save the dates. We had a fall engagement session with our photographer and we used those photos to make the save the dates. It was cool sitting down with my honey and going through our favorite pictures and choosing different layouts and colors, we had alot of fun with that! We went with http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com/ and they had the best options in comparison to other stationary sites...they were a little more expensive but we saved over $100 using coupon codes. So WIN for us!!
