Getting all dolled up.

Make-up trial today! Luckily there will not be some creepy old lady looking over my shoulder like in this photo so it should be fun.

ALSO - invitations are scheduled to arrive today. Whoo!

2 months!

Seriously, it's only 2 months!?! Mother of Pearl - where did the time go? I feel like I'm officially stepped on a train heading straight for the aisle and I hope I can keep up with the pace. For the past year I’ve tried very hard to ensure that the “wedding” did not take over my life. Instead, I let non-profit benefits do that for me. Well now it’s time to focus…60 days to go and I can’t wait!

What is your song?

What is your must have song at a wedding? Is it "Shout" or "The Electric Slide" that makes your feet move during a wedding reception? Our music list is due to the DJ soon so we're taking request.

You must check this link out. If I was getting married in Charleston, I would totally borrow this idea.

Lenny's Tux

We picked out Lenny's tux today at a local shop here in Spartanburg. Now all I need to do is track down 10 other men for their measurements and this can be taken off the to-do list. Yeah!

Dancing all night long...

I started the music list for the reception today and this song has been stuck in my head for hours. Enjoy!

Our wedding exit?!?

Frankly, I have not really thought about our wedding exit until this morning when a co-worker asked. Due to past fires, I know sparklers are out of the question – sorry sparkler fans but what about other things like rose petals or bubbles?

To typical?

Ironically enough, I found this neat post from Wedding Paper Divas. What do you think of the streamers?

Hmmm...Mac & Cheese

One thought that we've had for the reception menu is upscale southern food and the favorite of conversation is macaroni and cheese. Would you eat mac and cheese at a wedding reception?

Whoo! Wedding Gift – Check!

I’m so, so excited about Lenny’s wedding gift and very thankful for the team of people who helped this frantic bride make it possible.

On other wedding news…I think we finally decided on a favor. Praise the Lord! My grandmother was known for her Apple butter Jam and I plan to recreate the recipe for our guest in little jam jars.

My thought is to have the Apple Butter and buttermilk biscuits at the wedding for people to take home as a midnight snack.

We also have our rings sized and back from the jewelers. Smithworks Jewelers did a wonderful job creating my ring. I can’t wait to wear it – only 82 days!
