Wedding Planning

Do you remember the time I was going to be a good blogger? Yeah, me neither. Oh well, we do what we can in a day. Right?

Last time we talked I mentioned I was engaged. Time out. You know, it was mean of me to drop an engagement bombshell and just walk away. Sorry, Blogger World. Hopefully, you guys will still be my friend? Please. Perhaps this will persuade you?
First of all, ignore my wrinkled hands. I was in desperate need of lotion. Second of all, isn't the ring beautiful??? Canada Travis picked it out all by himself. It's exactly what I would have selected. I love it!

Right now, we are deep in the trenches of wedding planning. Since I'm super cheap and have two sisters, I did not hire a wedding planner. Currently, things are moving along nicely. We have a date, place, invitations, reception food, cake and I have a dress. I'm sure we've accomplished more but I do not have my checklist in front of me. Yes, I have a checklist. Scratch that, not a checklist. I have a notebook dedicated to this wedding. It's full of list. Lots of list. I require lots of list for this shindig.
If anyone has helpful tips for making a wedding stress free I'm all ears, or all eyes.
Leave me your suggestions.

When's the big day??? No, sorry, I don't have any suggestions for making it less stress! Maybe my advice would be to make whatever you and he want the most about the day to be your priorities. Then don't worry so much about the rest. If that makes sense.

Hooray! My mantra was "we're only going to do the traditions meaningful to us." That made it easier to let go of what other people wanted us to do and focus on what we wanted. Very excited for you!

WOW! Congratulations!
I don't really remember any good tips for self planning...yes, I did it myself, but it was 26 years ago! lol.
I'm pretty sure that I mostly just went down the check list that was in a bridal magazine. I guess one thing to remember is that no matter how well you plan, something WILL go "wrong"...just go with it the best you can. Me, I got married during a hurricane! Oye! We also had issues with the reception venue the day of...things that we were assured would be done were not. :p Ah well. The marriage is the most important part.

I can't wait to see the pictures Mrs Travis. ;)
