So we moved! And we love our new place!! It's amazing!

After our engagement shoot 2 weeks ago, and after looking at them I was devastated, heartbroken and felt gross about all of them! We had a buddy retake some of them and I couldn't be happier with them. I only have our sneak peak photos, which is 2 but still... I canceled with the photographer I had hired and am out about $1000 BUT hired someone who came highly recommended. I am now over my budget so I will have to cut cost somewhere else which is fine...

But now it's time to get back in the grove of planning since now we are down to 6 months. HOLY SMOKES! Now I am just pushing things off....sheeshh. Need to find my excitement again and find my motivation! Help me ladies!

    What do you still need to do? I'd make a list and then start at the biggest thing and knock that out then work my way down to the 'don't sweat the small stuff' stuff! I love your pictures, that background is gorgeous!

    I've got a list and I'm just like meh. Haha!! I have most the bug stuff done. All of our tastings are this month with some big decisions and working on the music for our playlist. But I've given our DJ most the reigns. But everything is else is pretty close to finish but smaller pieces

    Tastings are what FH is looking forward to the most! If you haven't come up with a Do Not Play List I would move that up to the top of your to-dos where it comes to your DJ! I'm a detail oriented crazy person, so I'm already planning to have "Wedding Days" where I plan on working on detail things as I get closer to our wedding date (which is a year a way, lol)

    Yes! These new pictures are great!
    I had a whole list of stuff to do the 2 days before the wedding. The list never got done. I felt like as I crossed off 1 thing I added 2 more. It never ended. As long as you’ve got your big stuff checked off your le good to go!!

    Hey Nicole! You look beautiful in your photos! I'm so happy that you were able to get a friend to retake them!

    Congratulations on your move!

    We're just getting back in the groove too! 5 months to go! Smiley smile

    I've just been redoing lists and getting everything ready to go! My matron of honor and I went to our venue and did an in depth self-guided tour lol and made note of certain things (ie: doorways that everyone can walk in and out of, special spots to get pictures, etc.) so that at our rehearsal we can get everything all set up and get some really awesome pictures too!

    Aside from that I've been working on a photography must-have shot list and will be sending it to our photographer in January. She's awesome and asked for it so she could get an idea of what's most important to us and even has her own pinterest board for our wedding haha.

    Other than that we will be doing decor (have to make pew decorations and put vinyl on our signs) and solidify timelines so I can get our timeline of events board down.

    Next month i'll be order invites during the cyber monday sale vista print usually has!

    A good photographer is so important and one thing we definitely splurged on. You won't regret it! Your sneak peaks looks great and congrats! 6 months is going to FLY!
