Updates and Back Tracking

I attributed my lack of posting lately on just needing a little break from my own wedding planning. I think it's quite natural for brides to come to a point {and maybe even several points} where they just want to put down the planning for a moment. I'm a little over a year away and so far

I've booked:

-Ceremony/Reception Site
-Photography
-Videography
-Florist
-Limousine
-DJ
-Hair stylist

In addition, I've purchased/made:

-Unity Candle Holder
-Unity Candle Supplies
-Ceremony Program Supplies
-Card Box
-Charger Plates
-Wedding Shoes
-My Wedding Band
-Memorial Bird Cage
-Trash The Dress Gown
-Aisle Runner
-Baskets for Ceremony Items

Mistakes I've made along the way:

-Purchasing invitation supplies too soon {falling in and out of love quickly}. Don't get me wrong, the invites I bought are beautiful, but they just aren't going to cut it for the overall "je ne sais quoi" of my wedding. Instead of throwing them away or selling them, let's just say I'll have the fanciest bridal shower invites in all everness. lol.

-Giving out too much info. I've learned that I can't disclose everything. That's what makes blogging hard at times. I want to tell it all, but if I do then there won't be any surprises later!

-Purchasing a guest book/supplies that I thought I was "in love with". I no longer like the idea I had, but I don't necessary feel stuck with the supplies because I'm sure I'll use them for something or someone else.

(Even though I've made my mistakes, they were with MY money. Can I just add that I HATE, HATE, HATE when people tell me what I "should" spend my money on or what I shouldn't "waste" it on. I don't get that often, but when it happens, it gets under my skin in the worst way)

Things that are currently on my mind/ to-do list:

-Get outfits for engagement photo shoot
-Design a Save-The-Date that I love 100% {have an idea in mind, just need to price it}
-Get my cake designed
-Officially book my make up artist {after trial}
-Officially book our pastor
-Details, details, details! (and boy oh boy are there a lot of them). This is actually my favorite part of the planning!


I do have a lot more to share as I continue down this road to marriage so just bear with me!
