Wedding Wednesday: The Inspiration

Since the reality that I am planning a wedding sank in and let's be real.. even before I was engaged, I would browse wedding inspiration boards to get an idea of the type of overall look and color scheme I want to incorporate into my wedding. I have always had an idea of the type of look I am going for but looking at these pictures has really helped me start to think about the details more closely. Thank goodness for sites like Style Me Pretty and Pinterest!

Other than gathering inspiration photos wedding planning has slowed down a teensy bit for me. Since we already have the ceremony and reception venue booked, the date set and a photographer hired I'm not in the same rush I had been in. Don't fret though.. there is still TONS to do and thanks to the many wedding planning checklist out there I haven't forgotten about my to-do list. I'm going to post parts of my wedding planning checklist on here so that I can always look back and remember every detail of the planning process and also to keep me accountable. 

For 12 months from the wedding day the Knot Checklist suggest I:
  • Start inspiration boards
  • Decide on a city and season
  • Start guest list 
  • Choose bridal party 
  • Set engagement party date 
  • Decide on wedding colors
  • Book the ceremony and reception venue 
  • Finalize guest list 
  • Book the officiant 
  • Find a photographer 
  • Begin researching caterers 
It feels good to be coming along on the checklist. I just love being able to cross things off! By the end of August I should be able to cross off finalizing the guest list, booking the officiant and start researching caterers. Happy Planning!
