Happy Wedding Season, Buffalo Brides!
My, oh my has this last month been a whirlwind of exciting wedding things! Besides being five months out from saying “I DO,” we just landed our first home! We couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter in our lives!
Not too much has been developing in the wedding area this last month. Rather smaller things.
To start, my first Bridal Shower is rapidly approaching, coming up in less then 50 days! My mom and I are in the process of basket making for prizes that our attendees will get to pick from. Thank god for her creative ideas because I know I would never have been able to come up with such great choices on my own.
Along with my first bridal shower, we went with The Village Bake Shoppe again for supplying the desserts! Light, lemony cupcakes add the perfect touch to a frilly shower brunch! To tie into my “Bridal Brunch,” we were able to find the perfect invitations online at Vista Print. With thousands of templates to pick from, the options are endless (and not to mention a GREAT price especially if you are having a larger shower like I am!)
So in the mean time, I have been keeping myself busy with the smaller details of the shower such as décor. Pinterest and Hobby Lobby have become my best friends over the last few months. For each table (gifts, sweets, the mimosa bar, recipe cards) I have been able to purchase templates on Pinterest and add them to picture fames to place at each spot. It is great because the individual vendors on Pinterest have specific designs, so all of the signs will be decorated the same way!
As for my lovely groom, he is in the process of selecting the tuxes for himself and his groomsmen. Who knew there were so many styles to choose from!?
Now, as for any couples that are getting married in a church know, there is a required Pre-cana class to attend. This is something we have been able to experience fairly recently. We decided to take the class at St. Vincent dePaul Parish, (the one we will be married at) in Niagara Falls. It was not only a great learning experience but helped us to understand what it really takes to be married and how everyday, you should be the best person for your spouse.
The teachers are great and talk about real life experiences and bring in a lot to discuss, some things that you as a couple may never have thought about. Things such as, how you will spend holidays between families, how you will raise your children, how finances are handled and so on. I highly recommend those looking into the classes to try this one. It is not just a “typical boring class,” but more of a helping hand and great enhancer for those freshly going into marriage!
As for now, I am still on the deciding end of table centerpieces, booking a limo company, deciding on hair and makeup styles for the big day as well as the smaller details like “Thank You” gifts for my bridal party and what to wear for my showers!
Until next time, Brides-to-be!
