Engagement Update: Month 2

I’m definitely a big fan of this candy-filled holiday but today my mind and heart are focused on something else. I have just lived through my second month as an engaged woman!

So far everything is moving along smoothly. We officially booked our venue a.k.a. 20% down(Thanks Grandma!). We’re so happy with our choice. It’s the perfect reflection of us. I’m going to do a whole post on it soon in case anyone else out there is looking for a spot in Southern California. I also want to share some ideas and maybe you guys can help me plan out a few things?!

I’ve also purchased my wedding dress, veil, petticoat, and shoes! I’m surprised how much got done this month. But I’m also really happy that I ordered my dress early so that they can sew me a brand new one! I’ll be the only girl to ever wear it, with the exception of my future daughter. I have a feeling she’s going to love it and beg to try it on.

That’s the latest for now, but there are more fun wedding posts coming soon!

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween!

Thursday Thoughts

Dreams EndSometimes life takes us in unexpected directions and we have to redefine our dreams. But just because things didn’t work out as planned doesn’t mean we’ve failed. The awesome  song ‘Closing Time’ puts it best, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”.

Monday Wish List: Little White Dresses

little white dress White dressesI need white dresses! My plan is to wear a cute little white dress for every wedding related event. So far, so good. I wore a white spaghetti strap dress to look for my bridal gown and now I just need to prepare for the next bridal occasions!

All of these lovely LWD can be found on Lulus.com. They have an amazing selection and their prices are reasonable! Here’s the link to see everything they have available in white: Lulu’s LWD

Which one is your favorite? Isn’t that little bow adorable on the top right dress?!
