Wedding Chat!

Hello loves! This is going to be a different kind of blog post. Why? I am talking about my wedding! Squee! I am just starting to get really excited for it! There is a reason why I was not looking forward to it, but we shall get into that later!


As I sit here painting my nails for Halloween (yes, I know they probably wont even last a day), I am starting to think about the wedding. Thursday we are going to be sending out some very last minute invitations. What do I mean by last minute, in a little over 2 weeks I am getting married. Oh. My. Gawll! Seriously excited and nervous.


We still have quite a bit of minor stuff.. or well major stuff that we need to pick up but we can't get it until the 3rd for reasons. Hah. I still haven't figured out how I am going to do my hair or my Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid's hair. ( I only have 1 bridesmaid so thats simple enough lol) We are having a very small wedding like around 35 people at the most. I think it is really only 30 with Chris and I. Let me check my list... Okay 31 including Chris and I and we are still not sure if 2 people from his side are coming or not.


If you have been following me on Twitter, you will probably know that a lot of stuff has been going wrong with the wedding. We have had 2 cancellations for venues and 2 others that were pre-booked. So it has not been a fun experience trying to find a place to get married! Thankfully everything has fallen into place and we have somewhere. Thank goodness because I was starting to get discouraged! That is one of the main reasons I was not looking forward to the 10th of November because everything kept going wrong. Hopefully nothing else will go wrong! *knocks on wood*

I did have a second bridesmaid, but that wound up not happening, but its okay. To be honest this wedding would probably not be happening if it were not for my Parents, Grandma Morgan and my Aunt Helen. They are the 4 people that have helped up out the most! I will be forever grateful to them for that! I will also be forever grateful to my Uncle Rick for marrying us as well. I don't think I could have ever asked for such a supportive and helpful family! They are the best!

To all of the ladies out there who are planning a wedding, I just want to say, don't give up! I almost gave up planning the wedding because it started to become way too stressful. I also want to say that you can do it perfectly well without a wedding planner! Goodness knows we are! :) Ours is a very budget friendly wedding, but at the same time we are spending more than I probably would have liked to spend. I also have been making all of the centerpieces myself. So really, it is a very DIY wedding. I am even cooking the food for it! Pft holla!


I still haven't figured out how I am going to do my hair, so that is something I need to figure out ASAP. I haven't decided if I am going to be going to a Salon (probably not) or if I am going to be doing it myself. That is something I need to figure out hah. I am doing my own makeup and I pretty much have it figured out how I am going to do it :) I even know how my Bridesmaids are getting theirs done.

I was thinking about doing a giveaway with the products I used for my wedding makeup, but I wouldn't be able to afford it honestly! I have been planning a giveaway or two after the wedding though! I already have the majority of the products for that (thankfully) bahah, but for my wedding makeup I wouldn't be able to afford it, unless I were able to find drugstore equivalents. Or if it were sponsored, but don't hold your breath. I'm not holding mine! :P


For the week of the wedding I am probably going to have scheduled blog posts. I am going to make sure I get them done before then, because I don't want to leave you all hanging! I always feel bad when I don't blog! Definitely keep an eye on my twitter though! I will be so active on that baby that it wont be funny haha

That is really all for now! I am seriously starting to get super nervous. My Grandma Morgan has been super cute, every time we talk about it she starts to cry. She told me when we went to go do a fitting for my dress (seamstress woo) that she loves being in the know because she is so excited, then she started crying. I don't know who is going to cry more. My Dad, My Mom, My Grandma or myself! Hah, we are a bunch of emotional saps huh!? :P


But, I shall talk to you all later! I hope you all are having a lovely week! I am going to go back working on the centerpieces! (Yes at 2:36am!)




  1. Yeah, I love reading about weddings. I don't know why because I'm not getting married anytime soon, maybe it's just a girl thing. You should show how you did your center pieces and share some of the recipes you'll be cooking.

  2. I definitely will! I was going to do another post or a bunch after the wedding comes. I may do a few recipes before hand. :) haha it probably is as girl thing! Wedding excite me like crazy as well!
