Happy Hump Day friends! It’s been a little bit since I shared a Wedding Wednesday update with you! Last time I checked in in October we had booked our wedding photographer, I picked my dress, we asked Michael to be our ring bearer, we booked a caterer, and I had been in touch with a florist. 

Since then we’ve been planning slowly and doing little things, but the holidays really took up most of our time. We DID ask Chris’ childhood friend to be our officiant, had our engagement photos taken by Naomi, and sent out our Save the Dates! I LOVE our Save the Dates and will share them with you all soon! 

This month we are:

Visiting the venue & locking in the floorplan. Our venue, Main Street Ballroom, is having an Open House on Saturday so I’m going with my Mama, MOH (Katie) and Macy (Bridesmaid + Wedding Planner). We will be able to see the space set up for a wedding and lock in the floor plan for the big day! I’m a visual person so I can’t wait to walk the space and finally be able to see what everything will look like. 

Securing hotel blocks. I had planned to go visit the hotels near the venue but honestly, I don’t know if it’s necessary so we will just call a couple nearby hotels and reserve a room block for the wedding. 

Meeting with the florist. I’m so so excited for this meeting! I’ve been talking with our potential florist for a few months and am really looking forward to sitting down and going over all of the ideas we have for the wedding day. I love the work I’ve seen online so far and can’t wait to start planning!

Hair & Makeup Trials. Mama and I are doing our makeup trials this Sunday and I’m excited to meet Justine from Detloff Makeup. I have my hair trial later in the month and although I wish both makeup and hair were happening on the same day I’m just excited to finalize both and get a sneak peek of what I’ll look like on our wedding day! 

Since my event season ends on January 24th and I don’t have another event until May we are planning on getting a lot done over the next few months like settling on a DJ, finding a videographer, figuring out our signature cocktails, and cake tasting! 

254 Days to go!

    I’m so excited for this weekend and to really get a visual for how you want everything! It’s great to check so many things off in a short amount of time, too. Can’t wait to see how the makeup and hair trials go!

    You know I am here to help with the cocktails! In the meantime, can’t wait for Saturday!

    How exciting, wedding planning can be so fun and you’re on the ball. Have a great time this weekend!

    Girl, you are ON IT!! :) So glad you’re enjoying the ride and have so many fun items coming up to check off the list! Funny, we visited the 2 hotels nearby our venue but afterwards I thought, that was kind of unnecessary… florist meetings are THE BEST!
