Planning, Planning, and More Planning

I have found my calling- not really surprising to anyone that really knows me but I LOVE PLANNING MY WEDDING! I have been engaged for almost three months and already I have so many things accomplished. Of course, I have to give credit to my trusty sidekick "The Bride's Book of Lists" which is pretty much my timeline and organizer. This book keeps me not only sane but cool as a cucumber!
-So far we have the temple booked for November 26 at 9:00 am! We will be sealed in the Birmingham, Al temple since the Atlanta one is closed for right now.- The reception site- The Trolley Barn in Inman park in downtown Atlanta. This is such an awesome open space that really is perfect for us. It has sort of a loft feel to it and looks really really nice.- All wedding stationary is ordered
-Save the Dates have been sent out
-Bridesmaid's dresses picked outThe girls will be in Marigold with a Charcoal sash. They also have extra fabric for those that need to add sleeves. I think these are really perfect dresses!
- Men's wear picked out
-My dress bought
-Caterer booked. Which our caterer is also doing our flowers, and linens!
-Bakery selected
-DJ selected
-We are registered at Target and Macy's (this was my least favorite part. I thought I would enjoy it but it turned out to be very stressful!)
-Photographer selected
- And the rehearsal dinner is being planned!
So far so good! No one has gotten too stressed out and I think I have been the perfect bride :)
We have chosen shades of yellow and gray for our colors with Marigold, Slate Grey, and Ivory the main colors.


  1. I can't wait to get the dress and try it on for reals. It will be great to be in the good colors of marigold and charcoal instead of that awful bright blue, not to mention having the correct size instead of a size 10. Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing good colors and a good dress. :)

  2. AWWWW J- I am so glad you like the colors and the dress! I think you guys will look great!I can't wait to get them as well! I am serious about you coming out for the shower in September- I miss you J!
