Business & Bridal Fun

Between business & our fast approaching wedding, it has been pretty insane around here!! Last week I decided to attend an all day short sale seminar, which I will say was well worth it. The main idea that was conveyed was exactly how to negotiate with the banks while avoiding their crazy tactics. VERY good inside data for me.

Now onto the fun stuff! My bridal shower is less than a month away. I am so exited for this. We decided to do something a little different. Rather than having the normal daytime shower; I came up with having a sort of girls night cocktail party. It will be at Lizzie’s house in the backyard. Think outdoor garden party on a warm summer night with romantic candles, yummy food, cocktails & games. Here are some photos to give you an idea of the overall feel I am going for.

And I’m pretty sure we will have to make some of these grapefruit mojitos too!

Here is a little sneak peak from our engagement shoot. More to come soon!

It’s wedding time! Only 2.5 months away

So I’ll admit, I’ve been a little off my game with the blogging :/ The truth is I haven’t had a whole lot of extra time + the wedding is so intensely on my mind that I don’t feel inspired to write about anything else. SO I have decided to just embrace it. From now until July 15th you will be hearing a lot more about the wedding. There are still so many decisions to be made.. and I figure, why not share my thoughts and get your opinions.  Plus my BFF/Maid of Honer is probably getting a little sick of me asking her opinion on every little detail!

First things first: the  BM’s outfits. Now this is tricky because I am really particular on what I want the overall look to be. First & foremost, I want my girls to look hot. I’m envisioning something completely different than the traditional bridesmaid looks we have all seen in the past. I want different textures &  colors that all go together. I’m thinking romantic-chic-glam.  The wedding colors are blush/peach tones, gold, silver, creams. This look  is sort of what picturing in my head:

And of course some sassy shoes. Maybe hot pink ? We will have to see though.  Thoughts on the BM dresses?

PS. If you are looking for a DIY home decor fix, my BFF has an incredible blog all about fixing up their home. She has beyond amazing taste & is obsessed with decorating. I swear every weekend she shows me some new crazy amazing project her & her hubby did together. Check it out

Love my MOH!!

The psychotic bliss that is our wedding

So here I am taking one of my “wedding planning breaks” which I have done frequently throughout this wedding planning process. And then I suddenly realize, I literally have done hmmmm maybe about an 1/8 of what I should have done by now!! My problem is that I tend to do a lot of researching, instead of actually completing or even starting projects. Ugh, I am a huge procrastinator.. Anyway, so my wedding is a little over 3 months away. Now that may not sound like that big of a deal, except I still have a lots and lots to do. There are bridesmaid’s dresses to pick out, groomsmen outfits, decor, furniture decisions, a million DIY projects, honeymoon planning.. Not to mention planning out, shopping & getting ready for my Vegas Bachelorette weekend.  I’m getting overwhelmed just typing this all out! I won’t bore you with all my wedding drama. It’s a pain, but I know it’ll all be worth it when I get to see the look on his face, when I walk down the aisle to marry my bestfriend.

Check out our Save The Date cards we just sent out – the picture in the top right is of Clayton & I when we very first got engaged! Love him!
