This last month was so full of crazy, and I feel like we are shoveling money out every other day for something related to buying/selling our houses. We have had to compromise on some wedding details, and on other things we have had to just “let go”. I was so ready to order flowers for the wedding from Bouqs.com – but then life happened and we needed the money for that to go elsewhere. In searching for an alternative to them, I learned that Sams Club offers wedding flowers packages. Say what? For around the same amount of money, we could get twice the amount of flowers that we would have with Bouqs.com. Don’t get me wrong, I love Bouqs and I love their sustainable farming practices – but I also love a good deal, and saving money.
Invitations go out this week, and I need to get a linens order in as well. Then we need to finalize decor! I have 2 friends who have offered me decor from their weddings, just need to go through it all. I think we are going for a little country, and a little shabby chic. Its a mix, and that’s ok! It isn’t going to be perfect, but guess what – we aren’t either!
In the coming weeks, we will talk about the maids & the gents, and more about our colors, special touches and more. I am going to try my best to get this wedding Wednesday post up every week!
I am so ready to marry the love of my life, and to be able to call Jake my husband!
