Wedding Update:: Part II

Last week I posted about everything that I have completed so far in the wedding planning process and boy was it a lot! Today, I'm sharing a list of incomplete items that are currently a work in progress. I'm sure there are a million other things that I forgot or haven't even thought about yet, but I'll keep you updated on those things as they pop up. So here it goes, all things currently on my radar:

  • Bridesmaid Dresses
    • In an unfortunate turn of events, I had to cancel the appointment we had to go bridesmaid dress shopping in January due to bad weather. We have rescheduled for March 4th and I am eager to see what we end up with!
  • Flowers
    • My mom is going to make the flowers for our centerpieces and decor, but we will use a florist for the wedding party's flowers. I am waiting to see exactly what color we end up with for bridesmaid dresses before getting my heart set on any floral arrangements.
  • Cake
    •  My mom's cousin makes wedding cakes so I believe we are going to ask her to make ours. I think we are going to go with several small cakes rather than one big one. 
  • Wedding Website
    • I have started our wedding website and just need to put some final details on it before I share it with all of you!
  • Registries
    • Michael and I have started completing our wedding registries. We are going to be registered at Kohl's and Target. I contemplated Bed Bath & Beyond but really there isn't one close to either of our hometowns so I felt like Kohl's and Target would be better options.
  • Invitations/Programs
    • We have a general idea of what we would like our invitations to look like but still have a lot of research to do before starting on them. 
  • Reception Decor
    • Honestly, I'm letting my mom take the reigns on the majority of the decor. She is so creative and has such great style that I know it will be absolutely perfect. I'll share some of her ideas with you in a later post. 
  • Tuxes
    • I think I want to go with navy tuxes for the guys but still need to figure out where to get them from and get an appointment set up to go actually look at them.
  • Ceremony Musicians
    • We have made no progress on this. Neither of us have any friends or family who are singers, so we still have to figure out what direction we want to take as far as the ceremony music goes. 
  • Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
    • Michael's bachelor party plans are still up in the air, but us girls are going to the Lake of the Ozarks in September and I cannot wait!
  • Honeymoon
    • Jamaica is looking like it might be our honeymoon destination but we are still in the negotiation phases.
