I really really LOVE the garters I listed below from etsy, but this weekend my mom and I found the garter she wore and I am considering making it my something blue (it could double as something old and borrowed too). Here’s a picture…

I’m thinking that I could get it dry cleaned, add a little more beading in the front, and put some monograms in it. I could put my parents wedding date and then mine and Marks’. That way, it could truly be an heirloom!

I have been away quite a while from the blog, but I have completed quite a few wedding tasks!

  • I booked a DJ and I will later blog about ALL the songs I do and I don’t want played. FYI..I’m anti- organized dances
  • I met with three florists (exhausting!) and decided on one-ofcourse the most expensive-but she is soo creative and we are gonna come up with some ways to save money. Later, I’ll blog about the creative ideas!
  • I met with a caterer and he is gonna get a quote to me on all of my desserts for the reception. My bridesmaid that I took with me is on Weight Watchers (as am I) and it was torture to talk about desserts for an hour!
  • I met with my wedding planner and she set me up with a baker, linen rental place, and stationers to meet with on my next visit home.

Garters! I still have ten months to plan my wedding, but I tend to want to check off some of the little things on my list. As of now, I have three options for my garter. I want it to count as my “something blue” and also for it to be something original. When I think of original, my mind goes straight to etsy. All of these Garters are made my Rose Tree Garters AKA GarterLady on Etsy.

    I’ve always been a little OCD with creating to do lists. I love the feeling of crossing off an item on my list. With wedding planning, it seems like the lists are never ending. The current list I’m working on is everything I need from the florists….Here’s what I got so far.

    • Bridal Bouquet
    • Tossing Bouquet
    • Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid Bouquets
    • Groom’s Boutonniere
    • Best Man and Groomsman Boutonnieres
    • Ring Bearer Boutonniere
    • Flower Girl Tossing Flowers
    • Flower Girl Flowers for Hair
    • Usher Boutonnieres
    • Program Attendent Corsages
    • Minister Boutonniere
    • Reader Corsage
    • Singer Corsage
    • Mother Corsages
    • Father Boutonnieres
    • Grandmother Corsages
    • Grandfather Boutonnieres
    • Flowers to Mark Aisles
    • Flowers to Decorate Gazebo
    • Flowers to Mark Entrance of Aisle
    • Hairpiece for Reception

    My fiance and I wanted an outdoor wedding (even though I am scared to death that it will rain!). We looked at places all over East Tennessee and finally decided on Ridge Valley Farms. It’s a gorgeous location that we can have the ceremony and reception at. Here are some pictures I took on our first visit.

      There’s not too much about me or the wedding I’m planning that’s traditional. The overall theme I’m going for with the wedding is modern, fun, and funky but I still want a few traditional items thrown in. One tradition I would like to keep is having a white cake.

      Here are a few of my favorites…
