If there is one thing I have done, that is absolutely soaking up the experience of being a bride! No joke I call my mom every day just to tell her that “BEING A BRIDE IS FUN!” And it is 100% true, being a bride is fun! But let’s be real here, the reason this whole bride thing is so magical is the fact that I am marrying the most amazing man out there, Kyston. And that I have such an amazing mom and friends to share the experience with!
Right after I got engaged my mom gave me a bride book/wedding planner. She didn’t really know if it was a gift I would actually use but I am obsessed with it. It was made by Happy Planner and is SO CUTE. And it is really helpful with planning a wedding. I have had so much fun creating a mood board, printing inspo photos and pasting them into the pages, writing down lists, etc. I am a total documenter (hence this blog) so this type of thing is totally up my alley. I even went and bought a blush pink planner just to match the bride book!
My mom totally spoiled me too and bought me so many bride magazines. I have read every inch of these magazines gathering inspiration for the wedding and getting ideas! Little things like this truly make the experience memorable, when else do you have an excuse to splurge on 5+ bride magazines!?
I really had fun getting creative on how I wanted to ask my best friends to be my bridesmaids. I got a fun gold scratch off card that I mailed to each of them with a personal polaroid photo of us! They all loved it!
Kyston and I went cake tasting together as well as catering testing. It was so fun! And we got free food! I really loved doing this together, I love how Kyston is a part of the whole planning process and is involved. Excuse the ridiculous photo of us though, it was SO sunny outside haha!
Every aspect of planning the wedding has been a blast for me. I am on cloud nine! I cannot wait for May 20th to come!
