Invitations: Basic Invite c/o / Bag: Chanel / Sunglasses: Karen Walker
I can’t believe we are in the final stretch of wedding planning now! If I think about it as a whole, it’s entirely too stressful. So I try to keep in mind the major things that we have accomplished. We booked the honeymoon this month, a cruise through the Mediterranean. Jeremy has never been to Europe before so I can’t wait for him to see how beautiful Italy and Greece are. We also booked the bachelorette party (Charleston, look out) and the bridal shower.
As an added touch to the parties, I love sending out formal invitations via snail mail. I partnered with Basic Invite to design these bridal shower invitations. They have every kind of card you can imagine! Once you pick a design, you can change the colors, font, text, etc… it was so easy! (Finally, something easy about wedding planning) Plus, they were under a dollar per card. For more designs, check out Basic Invite’s entire selection of bridal shower invitations.
Now, there are only a few smaller details remaining. Luckily, my day-0f coordinator is superwoman and doubling as the entire planner. I meet with her on Saturday to iron out menu, centerpieces, and decor for the ceremony.
We’re having a band play the classics and a DJ fill in when the band goes on break. I will have to share the playlist I passed on to the DJ – you’ll love it if you love 2010-2012 rap. Those were a few good years! I also want to get a playlist together for getting ready with the girls; nothing sappy though because this girl’s makeup has gotta last.
Finally, when it comes to the various signs we’re using throughout the wedding (seating chart, welcome sign, signature drinks, photo booth), I am designing them myself. I can’t wait to share those templates, plus my bridesmaid proposal templates with you soon – they’ll be free downloads!
