Wedding Wednesday: The Checklist (Update)

Happy Wednesday!

For all of my fellow Southeasterners, happy snow day! It's just started falling again here and is covering the ground quickly. Thank the LORD I have a job that allows me to work from home in situations like this. I don't even want to chance the roads.

Today, I wanted to update you on a few things I've completed and now have in progress with my wedding. An updated checklist is below...

As you can see, I've completed a few things I had in process on my last checklist post, and I have a few new things in process. Most of what I have in process revolves around the reception. I went to Sam's with my mom over the weekend and priced out the candy for the candy buffet and cookies/salty snacks for the other tables and it came in to around $256!! Which is amazing! A HUGE relief knowing about how much it's going to cost and that it's under budget. I still have to price the drinks (they had the miniature water bottles but not those cute little mini sodas I want) but I don't think that will be more than maybe $150 at the most! Did I tell y'all I'm having miniature water bottles and sodas in these cute little galvanized pails at my reception? I love miniature things...bottles, cakes, I'm very excited to use the little 8oz water bottles and soda cans. I only have to price out the sodas (because they didn't have them at Sam's) and then purchase everything. But it's all coming together and that's really a big stress relief.

Also, I decided to borrow cake stands, platters and other serving ware (vases, bowls, jars for the candy buffet) from friends for my candy buffet, milk and cookies bar and "man" table. I think I'll be able to borrow everything I need without having to rent/purchase anything...which is also a big relief.

It's so amazing when you finally start to see things coming together. I'm really excited to have a unique, whimsical and fun ceremony and reception. It's my hope that this entire experience is very "us" and unique. I love the idea of surprising people with different ceremony and reception elements.

Also, I will leave you all with this. I saw this pin the other day and I've been thinking about it ever since.


  1. You are really on top of stuff! Go you!!

  2. You will "NOT" have time to make food! Forget it!!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
