wedding countdown:

10 months!!!!

we are down one more month! yipeeeee!

if you aren’t fully up to speed with cale & i’s story, you can check that out at our actual wedding website www.andersoneverafter.com. this domain will eventually become the home base for this blog but for now it will remain strictly our ‘wedsite’. so go give that a little look see. this month i released some more pages [vendors & the wedding party!]. each month i have been releasing a few pages ultimately leading up to february where we will release the whole website, that’s when everybody should have their save the dates!!! i can’t wait to share those with you guys!

here are just a few details to get y’all up to speed.

Villa Antonia

this is our gorgeous venue! who would have thought that this is in texas?! she is located just a few miles outside of austin and oh my goodness we are so so in love! we booked this place blind, basically just off of reviews and pictures. when we toured it this past september we were floored. it’s even more beautiful in person! can you say fairy tale wedding…fairy tale wedding y’all!!!!

our date is set for october blah blah 2015. hehe most people know as i might have slipped on some social media but i’m trying to keep hush hush until the save the dates go out. we chose october because it is such a pretty month in austin. it’s not too hot and not too cold, although at night it can get pretty chilly.

this month we…

  • finalized our guest list.
  • got addresses from all of our guests [sheesh that was a doozie, just give me your address people!]
  • bumped up our decor coordinator to our full service coordinator [easily the best decision we’ve made thus far]
  • ordered save the dates! *you guys have to read my embarrassing story at the end. <insert facepalm here>
  • ordered our cutesy ‘cale and jessica’ return address stamp
  • booked our florist! the sketches they made for us are absolutely gorgeous! {how many times have i used that word in this post now?}

*okay now for the embarrassing story; so while ordering our save the dates, cale & i went through our guest list and added everyone up for the head count. so if everyone shows up that we are inviting that would be 160+ people. {worried face here} but okay so i got onto good ol’ Minted.com and entered 175 just to have some extras just in case. enter credit card info, verify address, submit orderyay! they are ordered!!! next day rolls around and i’m poking around with our guest list, color coordinating it {i’m ocd} when i realize…son of a monkey’s uncle…we ordered about 75 too many. there’s this thing called marriage and some of those married couples live together which means * drumroll* only one needs to go to their house. luckily i was able to call them and cancel and replace our order with the correct amount. however, in doing so, we ate a good chunk of change for the inconvenience. boo. again {facepalm}

stay tuned for monthly updates on our adventure to becoming the andersons!

 

always
