Wedding Planning....Month One

I promised you guys I would give an update on how wedding planning is going. It took me a month to finally sit down & write about it, but you guys have no idea how much I have gotten done in one month. I feel like I should be a wedding planner!! Boy, am I glad I am planning this without a wedding planner though, I'm way to picky & I know exactly what I want & how to get it done right!!

Wedding Colors: Soft Pink, White, & Cream
Wedding Fabrics: Burlap & Lace

I've always wanted a small wedding with fabulous decorations. I'm going to have around 50 people. I originally imagined a church, but when I saw my venue, very cute, small, & secluded I loved the idea. Etsy has gotten me very far!! I tell you what, that site is amazing. Obviously, I want to wait till the wedding to share all the goodies I have bought, but I would love to give a shout out to the etsy stores I have bought items from so far & you can pretty much tell what I have gotten or what I'm going for at least :)

Etsy Stores

In a month we have put down the deposit & booked....

Venue- Magnolia Hall

Reception & Ceremony will both be held at Magnolia Hall

Photographer: Timeless Photography

DJ- Complete Music DJ

Food- Magnolia Thomas House

Honeymoon- Royal Caribbean Cruise to Bahamas for 5 days

I have all the decoration supplies to finish the decorations i'm making on my own & I have ordered all the ones I'm not on Etsy. I also said YES TO THE DRESS yesterday at David's Bridal....I only went to too places & tried on four gowns total. I found my dream dress, same dress & same designer for a great price, over my budget, but still a good price, It's Vera Wang!! :) I also bought my wedding shoes at Nordstroms.
We have also chosen our bridal party, flower girls, & ring bearer. This is how I asked my bridesmaids to be my bridesmaids....

The first item is a box with a ring pop, the second is a makeup bag with "bridesmaid" on it, third is a book I made with the pictures in it, & forth is a little glass black letter which is the first letter of each of their names.
