We officially have a caterer.  I can breathe.  Let the fun begin! 

I can honestly say that this was the only stressful part of our wedding planning so far.  I hope I don't jinx myself. 

I love our menu.  Love the details.  

Now it's all fun and games until October.  Decorations, flowers, invitations, and favors.  

Wait - Save the Dates too.  We are taking our engagement pictures in a week, and I could not be more nervous. 

I am NOT photogenic.  I have come to accept it, and I have moved on.  

Till now.  What am I going to do?

This is going to be awkward, I know it.  M bug and I might have to have a glass of wine (or a mimosa since we are taking the pics in the morning) beforehand.  Or three.  

I started thinking about what shoes I want to wear with my dress.  I know, it's early.  BUT given that our wedding colors are orange and gray, Spring/Summer is the best time to find orange shoes. 

Yes, I will be wearing orange shoes.  I am thinking something like this for the reception. 

Yes? No? Hmmm maybe?  I am obsessed with Tory Burch ANYTHING.  And I will definitely wear those again! (Is that a good enough argument for spending $195 on sandals?)  Not sure M bug is going to agree.  


  1. beautiful picture and blog:)

  2. Love those sandals... I mean, if they match your wedding colors then the cost is justified, right? ;)

    I think it's alright to splurge a little when it comes to engagements and weddings. You only do it once! Enjoy.

  3. You'll definitely want to have SOMETHING comfy for the reception. I ended up taking off my shoes entirely. :)

  4. Congrats on finding the caterer! The food is one of the most important things about the reception. I'm sure things will be absolutely wonderful. Good luck with the rest of the planning :)
    Love the color palette you've chose. It'll be beautiful in October!!
    Happy weekend!

  5. All the stress and planning will be worth it in the end, promise :)
