back in the game!

i have decided to start blogging … again. so much has happened since i started this blog; i got married, had a baby, moved into our first “real” house … i wish i would have documented these wonderful moments sooner. i have been inspired by real life friends who blog and also by the millions of other woman/mothers who choose to share a glimpse into their beautiful lives. i hope i can too.


Wedding Planning …

Jan and i recently got engaged (yay!) and for the most part, wedding planning has been very exciting. he popped the question on october 23 and already we have:

*picked our date (9.4.11)
*secured our venue (founders hall, roswell, ga)
*chosen our bridal party

*booked wedding limousine for venue arrival (visit to get more information)
*had our cake and food tasting (most importantly for jan, choosing his grooms cake)
*met with a florist
*taken engagement photos a wedding movie with one of this wedding video packages
*ordered save the dates
* Buy the hammered mens wedding band

* looked at some wedding rings, e.g., cushion cut engagement rings (we visited sites like to see their inventory)
*made and edited the guest list (which im sure will include more revisions)

I have also found a bridal company, allure bridals, which I love. They make the most beautiful gowns. Here is my dream dress by them:

Isn’t this such a gorgeous dress? The lace, the detail, the buttons …plus, it is only $972 (which is in my dress budget) from house of brides.

Am I getting too ahead of myself? I’m a planner by nature and I don’t want to be stressed out. We also have a tight budget, so shopping around for the best prices ahead of time makes the most sense, actually thanks to it I booked a marquee from wedding marquee hire gold coast so guests can enjoy outdoor activities. When you host an outdoor wedding ceremony, the trees, flowers, and another natural backdrop often offer all the decoration you need. Even if you add in a few personal decorations, decorating for an Outdoor Wedding Venue is often a lot easier and less expensive than decorating for an indoor one. If you have always dreamed of getting married in a beach, you can look for a Southern Beach Wedding Package that can help stage your dream wedding. 

Next up on our wedding planning agenda is to sort out the entertainment. We’ve been looking online at websites like this for inspiration. Our post reception is going to be a lively but classy affair, so we’re thinking of hiring a jazz group.

We are also in the process of hunting down a photographer for the big day. Some of our friends who live in New York recently got married and their photographer did a fantastic job. Check out her website to Learn more about this popular wedding photographer based in NYC.

I feel like September will be here before I know it. I still cant believe it is almost Christmas! Where do the months go?
