wedding countdown:


8 months!

has it already been a month?! my goodness! people weren’t lying’ when they said these months would fly by! we have gotten so much taken care of this last month. i know i said in our last post that february wouldn’t be too eventful…yeah, i lied.

don’t forget to check out our wedding website // {andersoneverafter,com}

previous wedding countdowns // {10 months}   {9 months}

this month we:

  • booked an incredible videographer! i’ll list all my vendors at the end of the post.
  • booked our wedding flights. well actually we booked the majority of our flights this year. one of my best friend’s getting married a couple weeks before us and i’m a bridesmaid! so we booked that flight, our flights down right before the wedding, OUR HONEYMOON FLIGHTS, and next to book are my dress fittings and our bachelorette/bachelor parties. hello frequent flyer miles!
  • applied for our passports! technically i applied & cale renewed. we needed passports because….
    • aruba-bucuti8 this is literally a picture out of a room at the resort we booked! again, i will mention all vendors at the end!
  • my wedding bands came in! woop woop
  • we ordered cale’s band, too!


all you bride to be’s read carefully! i would of course recommend all of my booked vendors to you because…well they are awesome, duh! why would i want to be selfish and not want another bride to have the best wedding she could with these outstanding vendors! that would be just plain mean! i am not a jealous bride, i do not care if i have the exact same vendors as another bride because i know i have my own taste, and unless you were asking my coordinator EXACTLY what my wedding looks like, then you should have no problem because i’m sure your wedding will be just as gorgeous! i still have a few more to book, like hair & make-up, fancy departure transportation, night-of hotel and a surprise for our guests.

that’s it for now as far as vendors but we’ll keep y’all posted!
here’s just a few more pictures that our little jazmina took!

      1. You are going to LOVE Aruba!!! My husband and I are going again in September and I can’t wait!

        As for restaurants, our favorite restaurant in Aruba is El Gaucho, which is an Argentine Steakhouse. We go there every time we are in Aruba, and it is one restaurant you should definitely try. We went to Windows on Aruba for the first time last October and it is another restaurant that I would definitely recommend – everything we had there was DELICIOUS! My favorite Italian restaurant in Aruba is Hostaria da’ Vittorio – they have the BEST tiramisu that I’ve ever had and it is another restaurant that we go to every year.

        As for things to do, my husband and I always rent a Jeep for a day even though we have been to Aruba many times. It is a really fun way to explore the island. If you do rent a Jeep (or car), I would recommend going to the Arikok National Park , California Lighthouse (awesome views for some great pictures), and Baby Beach (MUST SEE – it is absolutely beautiful and the water is very shallow so you can swim out very far and the water will only be up to your knees).
        Each night, my husband and I usually just walk around to different hotels / stores / restaurants. One thing I love about Aruba is that it is the only island I have been to where I have felt safe walking around, especially at night. At 11 PM and later, you will see tons of families, couples, and people of all ages walking around – especially right near your hotel.

        Where are you staying? So excited for you! 🙂
