 I will admit, my mom has been doing most of the wedding planning, and I honestly don't know if anything at all would even be done had it not been for her. We have our date, venue, photographer, videographer, florist, and more, already set in stone, and I feel like I've taken a back set as it's all happened, lol. Ok, not a complete backseat, because I pretty much say my idea, and my mom actually gets it done. However, this week, I actually started planning things on my own. I got ideas for the gifts for my mom and dad for the wedding day, including quotes to add with their gifts, picked the song for the videographer, searched for robes for my bridesmaids, looked for a Photo Booth company, booked our officient, scheduled our engagement photos, etc. Even just doing all of that, I thought, how on earth has my mom found time to do all of the big stuff?! It's a lot of work! lol. Being an only child, though, I see why my mom is so excited about the planning, and I'm sure I'll be the same way once I have a child of my own. 
If you are a bride to be, I highly recommend using the app The Knot. It seriously helps you stay on track, being able to check off from a list of things that need to be completed every month before your wedding day. Plus, it has a wedding countdown, which I love. 234 more days till I get married!

  2. So obsessed with this pretty dress! The color is perfect and I love the ruffles! Also, I don’t have a clue as to what my style is… it changes daily haha! I’ve come to embrace it and like you said, there’s nothing wrong with that!

  3. Wedding planning is fun but super stressful! Sounds like you are on top of things… Your ring is gorgeous! :)

    Thanks for the tip!! I just got engaged and I have yet to start planning. Gives me anxiety just to think about it lol.

  10. You have 234 days and you are already planning the wedding? Oh boy, I’m getting married in July and I’ve only got the venue and the photographer. Now I’m stressing out….I should have started earlier. I hope I have time to do everything. I want to do a to-do list so I don’t forget about anything. I’ll probably get my mom to help me out too. Since I’m an only child she’s only going to get to do this once so I bet she’ll like it :)

  11. Your ring is so beautiful! Excited to see wedding photos! | Luxury. Fashion. Lifestyle.
