Wedding Wednesday...It's Almost Wedding Year!!

Wait, it is really Wesdnesday isn't it? My days are so messed up this week due to the holidays someone could tell me it's Monday and and the blonde in me wouldn't even think twice...
OK, so I cannot tell a lie--I got on The Knot yesterday to see the day countdown because I hadn't checked in awhile and WOW, that final number has sure come down. As of today, we're at a mere 164 days to go. I know that sounds like a load for some brides out there, but for me, that has me checking my to-do lists to make sure I am still on ahead of schedule.
Thankfully, Mom is in full effect--yesterday afternoon, she visited with with the lovely ladies at Bella Bridesmaid one final time and ordered her dress! I know she is going to look incredible in her custom Lula Kate silk dupioni gown--and Mom, I KNOW you made the right decision ;).
This is the overall style of the dress with the one strap {LOVE!}, however hers will be a different color and is floor length for an even dressier option for my big day.

Jeff and I also signed up online to take personal assessments for our upcoming pre-marital counseling sessions... talk about in-depth! These questions ranged from finances to emotions to babies to arguments and covered anything in between--of course we were dying to talk about our answers with each other, but were told not to as we'll be bringing them up very soon once we meet with our pastor--I know this is only going to strengthen our marriage so I am all for it! Let's just hope it doesn't have me making these faces...haha!
 
We also have on the books another reception coordinator meeting the 2nd week of January to discuss our invoice, floor plan, rentals, and design. The first version of everything came back looking fantastic and I can't wait to discuss each detail so we know exactly what aVenue will look like!
And finally, our wedding team {Mom, Dad, Jeff, and I} are going to let the boys try on tuxes in a few weeks... the boys couldn't be more excited to get their James Bond on and see how spiffy they will look--they are so entertaining together I tell you.
Until next time for more updates, I'll leave you with some more of my fabulous inspiration pictures for anything and everything wedding...Happy Wednesday!

  7. Your Mom's dress is gorgeous! She has great taste! My husband and I filled out very similar online assessments and were forbidden to talk about them until our first pre marital session. It was so helpful because it really helped our pastor narrow down things we needed to work on. I'm so excited for you guys, enjoy this fun time :)
