“Getting married is like trading the adoration of many for the sarcasm of one”
OMG… our wedding is NOT going to be Fyre Festival 2.0. Our guests won’t be served sad cheese sandwiches & no one is going to show up to a reception room filled with flilmsy FEMA tents. Praise be. Things are finally starting to come together & the invasive, relentless wedding nightmares have slowly started to dissipate. I might even go so far as to say that I’m ACTUALLY getting excited. With less than one month to go – things have been pretty crazy over here so I’m just going to get straight to it! ENJOY!
My Bridal Party threw me the absolute BEST Bachelorette Party of all time. I’ve already recapped it here on the blog, so if you like all things cute, & downright adorable… please click HERE!
Met with our Officiant
Believe it or not… we literally did NOT reach out to our officiant until about one week ago. So as of this past Sunday we finally have someone to marry us on our wedding day. Big checkmark off the “to-do” list. We are using Enduring Promises & the entire process/experience thus far has been incredibly seamless – even though we’re just about two weeks out!
My one hesitation of using a service like Enduring Promises was that our ceremony wouldn’t feel personal, however after meeting with our officiant these concerns have truly ALL dissipated! Andrei & I have complete control over how our ceremony will play out – ie. readings, prayers, order etc. – & I am MORE than confident that Enduring Promises will ensure our wedding ceremony is the right fit for us! YAY!
This has quite possibly been my favourite part of the whole wedding planning experience. CAKE TASTINGS. My aunt & cousin will be doing our wedding cake & I am just the MOST excited about it. My aunt had Andrei & I over for dinner followed by cake tastings with my cousin & they delivered everything we asked for & MORE! Our extensive “cake research” for the wedding was to simply google “winter wedding cake flavours” & then just send over the ones we thought were most interesting & they totally hit a home run! I’m not even blaming them for the 5+ lbs I likely gained from that evening because it was honestly SO worth it!

We got our wedding favours a couple of weeks ago! There are a few more “crafty” additions that I need to add to our favours so I’ve enlisted both my mother & future mother-in-law to help me out this weekend up at the cottage.
Finalized Menu with Caterers
We finalized our wedding menu with the caterers this month! Hor d’oeuvres, salads, mains, late night etc. have all been selected & I am just the most excited to eat all of the yummy foods.
Okay, that’s all for now! As you can tell by the length of the last two categories, I very much ran out of energy…
