As I promised, I thought I would fill you in on some recently accomplished plans.
- Bridesmaid Dresses Are Ordered!!!
This was a very large accomplishment in my books. I decided early on that I wanted the dresses to be a Mauve color but turns out that it’s nearly non-existent in the world of bridal gowns. My style is pretty simplistic and I feel like that’s very much how I imagined my wedding when I first got engaged. Simplicity just gives off such an elegant vibe that I love. Of course the bridal store didn’t have any of the dresses in the mauve in stock so we had to hold up a different style to get the realistic picture.
Thanks to my roommates/ bridesmaids for being very patient and trying on for me. So, the dresses Emily and Terra are wearing are in the correct style and the dress in the middle is the color I chose.
2. We Finally Have a Band
Ever since this past summer at Ben’s best friend’s wedding in Tennessee, we knew we wanted a live band at our future wedding (we weren’t engaged at the time). Most weddings I have ever attended have had DJ’s, which is totally okay, but doesn’t compare to live music in my opinion. Our only problem was that our wedding won’t be located in Tennessee where there are unlimited amount of bands to choose from. However, the band we chose kind of fell into our laps and we are more than thrilled to have them play for us. We recently sent (Blue Pluto) a playlist and can’t wait to see what they come up with.
3. Flower Girl Attire
Although this is a small detail, there is a very high chance the flower girl dresses are decided on. Funny enough I came upon this site through Instagram and fell in love with the options they had.

4. Save The Dates
I probably shouldn’t count this one, but half of them are sent out so I’m feeling pretty good! I ordered our “save the date” cards through wedding paper divas, who I found through The Knot (the site we made our wedding website through).
I cannot recommend The Knot enough to anyone planning a wedding!!! If you would like to check out our site the link is —-> www.theknot.com/us/benandtianna
In this crazy stage of my life, I can’t help to just stop and pinch myself to make sure it’s all real. 186 days from this day I get to call Ben my husband…now thats just surreal.
