Wedding Planning Journal

This will hopefully keep you guys informed about where we are in planning our wedding. I will try to write in it as much as I can.

Months later....


I really haven’t kept you guys informed! It’s been a crazy couple months. I am now the JV and Varsity Cheer Coach at Franklin High School which has really taken up a lot of my time. I still kept up with my wedding planning though. I bought my dream dress! It is just perfect! I’m very excited to get it in December! I also have my shoes, jewelry, and veil.

I just looked at him like he was weird when he asked me again and pulled out the resized ring. I screamed and snatched the ring from his hand so he again didn't get the YES that he was hoping for. I guess he'll...

Wedding Planning is underway!

     I have been engaged for a week and we have already done so much! We told our families and visited our friends which helped us get ideas, especially from my so experienced sisters :) My sister Sarah gave me a bunch of goodies from her wedding and Beth gave me HER BOOK! I can't believe she is willing to part ways with it for a year! Sarah helped me pick the color scheme of champagne and plum. Once that was picked, ideas for bridesmaids dresses, decorations, and...
