Some wedding deets!

So I've got the man, the dress, and the location... what more could a girl ask for?
As much fun as planning this wedding has been, can I just say for a second that I am so ready for it to just freaking get here already?! 

Caleb and I seriously talk about our wedding every day...now I am ready to just be married to him already and become sleepover pals for life. Not to get too mushy on ya, but he literally is my best friend. He makes me laugh, he encourages me, and treats me incredibly.


Onto a few wedding day details.

-PHOTOGRAPHERS: We spoke with them on Monday night and set up an official 'day of' timeline for photos... did I mention that Caleb ABSOLUTELY, 100% does NOT want to see me before the ceremony? Leave it up to him to be different than the rest of the world (no "first look" opportunity for him!), but you know what? I love that. I will truly get to see that look on his face as I walk down the isle... according to my best friend he will "fall to his knees" when he sees me... pfftt ;)

-CAKE: We decided on a smaller 3 tiered cake for us, the bridal party, and our immediate family to enjoy... top layer (ours) will be red velvet, and the rest will be regular white cake covered in buttercream icing, with the middle layer covered in edible hydrangea flowers. The rest of the guests will get to gobble down on some delicious cupcakes of their flavor choosing! Know what I am nervous about though? Caleb throwing cake in my hair... should I worry? Nah.... right?!!

-MUSIC: we are still in need of a first dance song!!!! We have it narrowed down, but some ideas wouldn't hurt... *ahem*

-JEWELRY: I have none so far. Woops!

-SHOES: I have only found one cute pair I'm considering. Help (pale yellow, please)!

-DRESS: not gonna lie, its amazing.

Okay that is enough little details for today...don't want to give TOO much away!

Cannot believe it is almost our WEDDING MONTH!!!!!

  5. We didn't do a first look because Andre' didn't want to, but seeing his face as I walked down made it so worth it :)

  6. We're not doing a first look either (his idea), I'm ok with that but I'd like to talk to him before so I'm not a wreck. I'm exited and cannot wait to see y'alls pictures.

  7. You could always get Caleb on board of smashing cake into the matron of honor and best man's face like we did. ;) Goes for a great memory!

  8. I was on a hunt for yellow shoes for about 2 months, and finally had to give up! Not even Zappos had any decent options. Sounds like you've got most things under control. I'm a week and a half away from mine and tired of waiting too. Good luck!!

  9. I definitely got to that point in wedding planning where I just wanted to it to be the wedding day already!! 7 months after my wedding- I just want to rewind and do it all again!

    Good luck with your planning!! Oh and love that engagement picture- too cute.

  13. YAY! It's coming soooo fast :) We did the cake/cupcake thing as well, and my guy was the same way. In my head I had these cute first look pictures planned out, but he didn't want to see me until I was walking down the aisle. It took a day or two for it to sink in, but I'm so glad we waited. It'll make it that much more special :) So excited for you, Kayla!

  21. I think my shoes were one of the last things I bought. Are you looking for flats or heels? I think I already told you we danced to You and I by Michael Buble. I think that is SO sweet that he doesn't want to see you ahead of time. It will make tha moment so much more special.

  24. J didn't see me before the wedding either, so we scheduled it at 11:30 in the morning (small private ceremony) so I wouldn't have to wait. Such a good moment though. I think you'll be so happy :)

  29. If you still haven't found shoes... look here! http://www.dyeableshoestore.com
    I was having the same problem finding cute shoes in the color I wanted and with heels I could actually walk in. I just ordered a pair from that website in the exact color I wanted and the pair I like only have 3 inch heel which is perfect! Hope it helps!!

  30. If money wasn't an issue, Zach and I would be getting married this June and not next June. We went to a wedding today for a friend, and it made me want my day to be here even more!!
