Wedding Update: No. 2

Since I wrote the first update, back in June, we haven't got too much done. But the biggest thing we
did do was book our honeymoon. We're going to New Orleans and staying in the French Quarter!
And the best part is that we are flying there. Which is pretty neat since we've never been on a plane together. I'm so excited about this. I cannot wait to show Alex all of my favourite haunts and have him fall in love with that place too. If you know me, you know I've been there three times already - and have a special place in my heart for the town. It just so happens, that Alex has always wanted to go there so it worked out.

I was thinking that sometime soon I would post a New Orleans Travel Guide as well. That way I can keep track of the places Alex would like to go and the places that I would like to take him. So keep your eyes open for that.

So in other wedding news, here's what we've done:
  • sent out our save the dates (digital + print)
  • decided on our formal wedding invitations
  • constructed our wedding website
  • finished our registry
  • decided on who will be catering our wedding
  • we're working on narrowing down the ceremony time
  • compiled decor items (I need to start making them)
  • booked our flight and hotel for the honeymoon
  • chose the bridal party and groomsmen
  • bought my dress
  • bought Alex's outfit
  • decided on wedding bands
  • decided on the rehearsal dinner venue 
  • started the day-of timeline
Be sure to stay tuned for more wedding updates in the future. It's getting close - we only have 128 days left until we get married.


  1. We love New Orleans too (as you know!). How exciting! Looking forward to more updates!
