Well I found this gorgeous white dress- for under $100- so I thought it was about time to give you a wedding update!

WHYYYYYY did all of my friends and family make it seem like planning a wedding was so easy and fun??!! Maybe it is different for me, but wedding planning is stressful and hard!!!

How do people do this AND have full-time jobs?!! So much respect for you guys! This is a full-time job in itself!!

If you would ask any of my childhood friends, they would tell you I am a procrastinator. I have never disagreed with that! It is not a good idea to procrastinate when planning a wedding!

I now have three months left before my wedding and the list of things to do just keeps getting longer!!

Tomorrow I need to work on:

-booking shuttle services

-getting uplighting

-renting the chairs and table decor

-sending out invitations

-shoes for the wedding

I will keep you updated on my Instagram stories to let you know what all I got done from the list above. After I finish that list… there will be an entire new list :/ I will keep you updated up until the wedding so that you can see where we are at on everything!

If you have been looking for a great dress, this one is under $100 and so gorgeous! I am wearing a size XS and it fits true to size! I love all of the pretty details and tried to give enough close-ups so that you would be able to see it too!

You can never have too many white dresses!

The Outfit:

White Bodycon Dress

Nude Shoes

Nude Prada Camera Bag

Kendra Scott Chandelier Earrings

    I’m getting married in 5 months and have found it mostly fun (except that our venue was under construction and they couldn’t tell us if it was going to be done in time until about a month ago – so that was stressful) but for the most part I find the planning process fun! That said, I keep having this feeling that I’m forgetting a million things because we haven’t hired a planner and am doing it mostly myself. Sounds like you’ve got a lot ticked off the to-do list! A few on mine that you haven’t mentioned (just in case!) are hair, makeup, mani & pedi booked for the bridal party, entertainment (band, dj, or DIY ipod) and officiant!

      Thanks love! My bridal party is going to have to do their nails before they come haha we are all too spread out! Butt I do have a band and officiant already and am working on hair and makeup now!

    Ugh I feel ya girl! I’m getting married in July and it’s been so stressful trying to plan everything. If I could just design everything on Pinterest and give one person my board to bring-to-life…. that would be a dream come true. Good luck with everything! PS- LOVE those earrings!

    I found this was the most hectic time for me (3 months out), because everyone needs answers and sometimes, you just don’t have them!! Just make sure to enjoy it because once it’s over, it actually makes you feel a little empty inside (LOL – how romantic)! I cried as we left our wedding venue the day after our wedding. My husband asked me why I was crying and I said “it’s just all over!” But in all seriousness, you got this!!

    Thankfully my wedding won’t be until 2018 and I am currently taking a break at looking at anything wedding related because it is SO stressful! Everyone kept telling me it was going to be so much fun planning the wedding, but I find it more stressful than anything! Good luck in the planning! I’m sure it will all work out in the end! 🙂
