Next in the Series….From Planner to MOB!!

Continuing the series “From Planner to MOB” takes us now to what has transpired since the last post.  

Quick recap of where we are — Officially engaged, bridal party selected, dress purchased, venue selected, invitations ordered, caterer selected…!

We have also determined the date and confirmed the venue.  The wedding will be in March {yikes less than 2 months}!  As I mentioned in the first post, originally, my daughter, Jessica, wanted to get married in Sarasota, FL at the beach. Aside from spending so much time there growing up, she was really considering that location because the relationship between she and Rocky blossomed there.  However, after much discussion we determined that it would be best to have the wedding here in the Atlanta area, so the search began.  We considered a variety of venues, but in searching their hearts, they truly wanted to choose a location that had meaning for both of them, so the decision was made to have the wedding at our church.  I admire that they came to the conclusion that the wedding should take place in a significant place rather than just a random venue.

The groom and groomsmen have selected their tuxes and it seems that the bridesmaids dresses have been decided upon as well.  That was a HUGE decision.

Now from the design perspective, our church doesn’t offer a “beautiful” background like many traditional churches, so my mind is filled with ideas of how to soften the look and make it look more weddingish.

Since the color palette and theme has been selected, I have accumulated a large supply of vases, containers as well as other decor items.  It’s been like a treasure hunt and it’s interesting where you can find perfect pieces!  I am so excited to pull it all together and then to see the final product.  There are some DIY projects that we will be working on to create just the look we want, so I’m sure that will provide a few fun stories to share.  :o)

Vendor selection is well underway and we are super excited about the Team that will be executing our vision!! Keep following as I will be doing a vendor Spotlight on each of them.

Jessica & Rocky are currently working on vows and music selections…..which has turned into a massive undertaking  – but they are making good progress.

They had their Engagement Photos (Michelle Pratt of Elephants and Apples) which turned out great.

The Bridal Shower will be held later this month hosted by her Matron and Maid of Honor.  We are both so excited for that celebration. The invitations are adorable.

Tune in next time for an update on our next steps and a recap of the shower and other details.
