Walk down the aisle & say I do!
A lot has been crossed off the list, or will be crossed off soon, which makes me so happy and relieved. Everything is coming together and woah! …where has the time gone? We got engaged on November 23, that was over 10 months ago. What?
Less than 7 months to go!
I’ll leave you with some mouth watering yummies.
Now I ask you…
What is your most favorite menu item you’ve ever had at a wedding? Could be a late night bite, could be the main entree or station, or it could be a passed hors d’oeuvres! Do tell.
