Wedding Planning Tag

I may be a little biased, but the person you choose to entrust with one of the most important days of your life – some refer to as the wedding planner. This person should not only have access to a wide variety of vendors, but a passion for people and a love for all things gorgeous! So, I knew that whoever was holding my day would have to be someone very special – and I had just the person!

I am 100% for Wedding Planners – OBVIOUSLY. BUT I will be the first to admit that I was trying every angle to not have to hire one. I mean, I am a wedding planner right?? COME ON. How hard could it be to plan MY wedding. After much denial, I decided to grab coffee with my girl Lottie over at Grit + Gold Weddings. Lottie and I met up a while back over drinks and I immediately knew she was awesome. This woman has an amazing eye for design and is always up for a challenge. We sat Friday morning talking about life and eventually my wedding planning came up and I was kind of embarrassed to say that I -the wedding planner – didn’t have a wedding planner!

Y’all. I cannot even tell you the weight that was lifted after I booked Grit + Gold and realized that I wouldn’t have to worry about anything. I could sit upstairs and soak up those sweet moments with my girls. PRAISE THE LAWD. And we didn’t just choose to go with them because Lottie and I are friends, but because they are some of the BEST and we knew that we would have NOTHING to worry about with them on our team.

So remember, when you are debating on whether or not hiring a Wedding Planner is worth the search and money, we are on your side! We want the absolutely very best for you and your groom!

Happy Thursday!

I think one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is trying to keep the same theme going through out everything you do. So, when it cam time to pick our save the dates, I knew exactly where to look! If you are a bride on a budget, then Etsy is the place for you! It’s the perfect place to blend your style with affordable prices.

These are the 3 we were looking at:

Shop: Hazel Bloom Boutique

Shop: Kibb K Studio

Shop: Fotovella

I loved all of the above ones, but I honestly fell in love with the one we chose instantly! When purchasing from Mallory, we picked her not just based on design, but based on the fact that she would print and mail them to us. For us that saved us a step of having to get them printed and the price difference between DIY printing and having her printing was so small that it was worth it to just have her do it. 

So here we go!!!

We can’t wait to send these out to our friends and family and get this party started!!

This day was a long time coming. We had been waiting out rain for a couple of weeks and when the day finally came, we were still unsure of the rain, but we went for it! It was so great! The sun poked through right as we got there and it is one of my favorite memories so far!

Thank you Elisabeth!! You made it so fun!

One thing I see other bloggers do, that I LOVE, is their recaps of the month. It can be anything from goals they set for themselves or pictures & today I’m going to tackle both!

Every year, I do the same thing as every other person and set goals I want to accomplish over the next 12 months. They’re usually things that never end up happening and gather dust on a shelf in my room. BUT this year, I wanted to create goals that would be attainable and something that I would have fun working hard towards.

So, with my handsome man in tow, I came up with a list of things that I believed would make me a better person AND a better wedding planner. Once the list was finished, I mailed it to him- we are long distance- with a letter attached saying that I wanted him to ride along with me and help me achieve my dreams. Once I decided to start these monthly wrap-up posts, I also decided to include my goals and check them off as I go. That way I not only have Josh, but you guys keeping me accountable!

Now enough talking. Here they are!

2014 Goals!

Learn Basic Graphic Design
Take a Calligraphy Class
Run a Half Marathon
Give the Blog a “Facelift”
Book 10 Weddings
See Josh MORE!
Pray Every Day
Save. Save. Save.
Finish Paying off School Debt

Hopefully I’ll be able to start checking some of those off VERY soon!

Now, as I promised here is my January Recap!

1// New Year’s with my man!! I loved being able to ring in the New Year with him!
2//Cotton Bowl with such a great group of friends
3//Road Trip! Since Josh and I are long distance- Texas and Oklahoma- and never spend more than the weekends together, we decided to spend 6 days together and drove all across Oklahoma and Texas!
4//Cotton Bowl (again) I surprised Josh with tickets for his birthday and it was awesome!

5//Phantom Grand Staircase! I’m sure most of you know that I am stage managing Dallas Baptist University’s: Phantom of the Opera ! This is the grand staircase that they will perform Masquerade on.
6//I went ombre!!! Or as my stylist calls it, “sombre” – soft ombre
7// Stephanie Asselin and her sweet sweet gifts. This was at one of the Phantom rehearsals & I really needed it!
8//I am DYING over these booties! They are so cute, but being 5’9″ doesn’t always have it’s perks, plus if you will refer back to to last goal, I am trying very hard to pay off school debt this year; so I won’t be buying them anytime soon…

9//This girl. She has been such an amazing friend to me over the past year. Her and her handsome hubby were featured in our New Years Shoot. They were called to work at another church a few weeks ago and this was on their last Sunday.
10//Jackson has officially encountered his first cat. He honestly didn’t know what to do.
11//This was taken a couple of days ago; when it was freezing outside. I had been dying for a taste of Spring, so on the way to work, I stopped and bought myself some flowers! It’s amazing to see how it truly brightens your day.
12//Lastly. After 6 long days together, he still kept me around 😉 So, naturally, I put him to work. These next couple of weeks are going to be bringing me into a new stage of life. After 14 months of living in our lovely apartment, our lease is finally up and I spent many nights praying and felt the Lord calling me back home. So, the last weekend in February I will be loading the car and saying goodbye to living on my own and moving back in with my parents. I am definitely blessed to have parents that will take me back in and take this time to encourage me to accomplish my goals. This picture was taken this past weekend, when we painted over my aqua blue high school room and chose a more neutral color. I loved spending this time with Josh doing normal stuff, that we never get to do together.

I goodness, that last one was a doozie! But that is ok because January is kick starting an amazing year for me! I am eager to see the work the Lord will do in me over the next 12 months.

Happy January!!

Love, B
