Wedding Things VIII: Wrapping It All Up

Our wedding is in five months!

One of my favorite bloggers, Jenn, got married this weekend and it wasn't until she wrote this post on all of the things about her wedding that she's looking forward to, that our own wedding finally started to feel real.

In the last month, we've just about finalized all of the details. We worked out all of the details with our florist, hired transportation and reviewed the first mock up of our wedding invitations. My sisters (and college bff) ordered their bridesmaid dresses and aside from some final paperwork, we finished Pre-Cana. I had my hair and makeup trial and my dress is coming along (slowly, but surely).

Everything left is little details. Designing our programs, making our play and do-not-play lists, finalizing and sending out invitations, getting our marriage license...little details.

It still doesn't quite feel real, and it feels soooo far off. Everyone has told us that our engagement would fly by and it really hasn't, at all. I guess that's a good thing, but I'm just really excited to be married and to celebrate being married with all of our friends and family members.

Wedding planning has been great. It's been so much fun and so easy and I'm so excited to see how everything comes together.

I probably won't write another wedding post for awhile since just about everything worth writing about is done! According to my checklist, we're way ahead of schedule. I'd like to keep it that way, so I'll definitely be checking off some more things in the next month or so, but I'm really feeling like everything is taken care of.

The things I will be working on in the next few months? Some DIY work for our centerpieces, finalizing our invitations, and designing our programs. Oh, and booking our honeymoon of course! There isn't really much else that can be done until around July when we hit the two month mark, and that's great!

This is exactly how I wanted wedding planning to go. Smooth. Easy. Our conversations have shifted from wedding planning back to normal life and that's perfect. I find myself only thinking about the wedding a handful of times a week, rather than on a daily basis and that's awesome.

I'm so excited for the spring and summer months and for the moment when our wedding finally doesn't seem so far away!


  1. I'm in the process of wedding planning now and it's so nice to read about someone who is ahead of schedule!

  2. Being ahead of everything is perfect! That's how you don't get stressed out. Everyone on the wedding day said "you're so calm! How are you so calm??" Because, I did everything I could and the rest was out of my hands. And I knew the important thing (getting married) would happen. And it was PERFECT! I'm sure it will be the same for you guys too!
    And thanks for the shout out :)

  3. Soo happy for you! I also enjoyed wedding planning and I think this is how it should be. Do you know where you go for your honeymoon?

  4. So finding someone who's planning things ahead of time, like me. Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when I say that I'm basically done with everything (minus the little details) at 5 months out.

    Love that your engagement is flying by for you! Such an awesome time, that you'll never get to experience again, so it's great that you're getting to enjoy it at a good pace. I definitely can't say the same. I feel like it was just yesterday, we got engaged!
