Wedding Updates!

Gris at A Little Piece Of My World has reminded me that I haven't talked about my wedding in a long time. I guess everything has been falling into place so I am not really stressing about it. No Stress=Not On My Mind.

But since we are officially only 38 days away, here's whats up (picture style, in chronological order)!

Here are our invites, made by yours truly =]

Front & Back

 I am debating on whether I want to take our pre-wedding bridal party photos at San Clemente Pier, where there is a really nice grassy area that looks over the beach and pier (I searched long and hard and couldn't find a pic of it, so here's the best one I could find)

I am gearing towards the beach because it is California, in the summer! The Beach is so beautiful, and oh soo Californian! I need your help ladies! What do you think?

We are getting married here, The Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club

The handsome groomsmen will be wearing tux's (I think it'll be really nice to break the military attire, after all, it's all I ever see. AND my lovely will look SMOKIN' in a tux) similar to this but with purple vests & ties.

Bridesmaids will be wearing this in purple

I will be wearing...JUST KIDDING!! That is a surprise =]

For ceremony decor I will be making these "flower balls" to hang off the chairs

We also are getting married under a Gazebo that is going to be draped in tulle, with those pomanders hanging inside it. I also was thinking about doing some design with the flower pedals up the aisle. Something like this,

But I feel like it is too structured and "posh" for my outdoor, country-esq wedding. Hmm.. there will be more thinking on that one.

My daddy (who is also my officiant!) will be walking me down the aisle to this song

Our reception will be at the same place. I already blogged about the yum, yumms so check that out here.

We will also be having a candy bar. My mom's friend, who is an amazing wedding planner (and helping me with our wedding here and there) is doing our candy bar. Here is an example of one she did at a kid's birthday. Obviously ours will be a tad different.


My lovely Mother in Law will be doing our centerpieces. What we talked about doing is so hard to describe but I assure you they will be beautiful!  It will include flowers, pictures of us, and possibly a few small candles.

And the last thing that can really be planned is our first dance song, which will be to this

After that we will be dancing the night away! I am so excited. The only thing's I have left to work on is all the DIY stuff I will be doing, like the pomanders & bouquets/boutineers.  I also need to make an agenda for the day, as well as a ceremony script. Oh! And I have to make sure everyone RSVP's because apparently, people don't think that is necessary. 

So that's the wedding update!! I hope you enjoyed!

It's going to be beautiful! If it wasn't so out of the way I'd suggest Laguna Beach for your photos. Its so beautiful and the water looks almost turquoise. But definitely do beach pics!

It all sounds amazing! I wish I could relive my wedding over and over. I told my husband, I am ready to renew my vows (I have yet to married for a year) because I want to plan another ceremony. LOL.

Jenna, I did my invites online at Vista Print. It was so easy and inexpensive. I paid like $160 for 200 invites, envelopes, address lables and rush shipping! Definately look into it!
