So today we just dropped almost $5,000 on flights and L’s having a minor heart attack. He’s definitely the saver and I’m the spender – but even this made me a little nervous! This summer we have two weddings back in Boston-area, so we book both of those flights. Then we booked our honeymoon, so now I’m just counting down the days (232 in case you were wondering).
Today I read an article about a bride who spent $4,500 and planned her wedding in five days. I know L wishes we could do that, but we both have too many family and friends. Okay, well some we can attribute to my expensive taste.
Today it was actually on the warmer side, so I wore short-sleeves! It’s funny – my mom keeps asking when I’m moving back to the northest, but with southern ‘winters’ like this, I’m not sure I will.
Sound off: any wedding planning tricks?

At first when we got engaged in March, September 2017 felt like a million years away. Now that we’re less than a year away, I feel so far behind! Tonight L and I watched Deadpool (obviously the most romantic movie we could find on television) and got to work at some wedding stuff!
Because I’m a perfectionist, I wanted to make our own website – the prefab ones from theknot.com just weren’t cutting it for me. I’ve been waiting on L to add in his groomsmen and finish up our proposal story – and he finally completed that tonight! Meanwhile, I finished writing out addresses and adding the stamps to our save-the-dates. As an added bonus, L even picked up sushi so we didn’t have to worry about cooking and cleaning. Overall, a successful night in the books.
As to my outfit, this morning really truly felt like fall. During this nice weather, I like to leave the heating/cooling off, but this morning I definitely woke up chilly! I wanted to wear a nice comfortable and big sweater and this J. Crew piece is one of my favorites! Since it’s a little on the big side, I paired it with a fun chunky necklace and some neutral shoes.
