We are officially inside the three month window!  Here are a few updates…


Loving this cake.  I already had finalized plans for ours, but these lace accents are really getting me.


I ordered my rehearsal dinner dress!  Thanks MOM!  Surprisingly enough… it’s not white, but black! 


Brandon and I have lots of fun parties coming up…  his cousins are hosting an oyster roast “Lawn and Garden Couples Shower” for us.  I’ve also got a couple bridal showers in February and March, too.  This is all too exciting… gives me butterflies to think about the festivities!


The invitations have been ordered and our calligrapher is assuming the position… it’s time to get these babies on the assembly line to be mailed out by the beginning of March.  I was going to show a sneak peek of our design, but decided to wait until the guests receive them. 


Rentals are really close to being finalized.  I just can’t stop thinking of new things to add to our proposal.  This has got to stop!  Shopping around the Ooh Events! warehouse was too much fun.  Rows and rows of unique rentals.





The flower girl dress has been picked out and will be ordered today!  Mom and I took Riley (my cousin & FG) shopping last weekend.  Of course, she loved all the pink dresses and couldn’t understand why I just couldn’t let her wear the “princess pink dress.”

This is not the dress we chose, but I have to share how sweet she is.



Oh, and the tuxedos have been picked out!  Brandon and his groomsmen will be dapper gentlemen in Vera Wang.  This is the exact tux, but they will not have a vest …cummerbund instead.


Ok, guess I can’t give everything away, but there’s a good dose of wedding plans to fill you in.  Figured I owed it to you for being MIA the past few days.


Oh, and if you’re recently engaged and looking for a great place to get married in Charleston, check out this new venue, Palmetto Landing.



This gorgeous backyard venue belongs to my Aunt and Uncle.  They live along the Wando River and have decided to open up their grounds for weddings!  It’s only 15 minutes from downtown Charleston.  Seriously, if you’re looking for oak trees, spanish moss, and a waterside sunset… this is for you!


 Oh, today is the last day of my Stella and Dot Trunk Show! Anyone who orders is automatically entered for a chance to win this Julep Bangle.

    What a beautiful venue! Great minds think alike with the tuxedos! 🙂 And I bet I could blow my entire budget just on beautiful rentals from Ooh!

    You are getting so close! My wedding is in June and I am envious of all of the strides you have made. And I totally know what you mean about butterflies. I'm basically living with a case of them at all times!

    Oh my goodness! I wish they rented their house 3 years ago when I got married!

    Umm that Oh Ah place looks like a slice straight out of heavens doors. I would go crazy in there.

    And whenever I get married I think I just might have to truck down to you aunt and uncles because that place is gorgeous

    Palmetto Landing looks dreamy! I had an indoor/outdoor wedding at the Daniel Island Club and it was perfect! Ooh Events warehouse looks dangerous. Glad I didn't know about it while planning! Can't wait to see all of your wedding details! I'm pretty sure I was a wedding planner in a former life!
