Wedding Update: 6 Month Countdown

Wedding Update: 6 Month Countdown - Chasing Cinderella

We are about six months away from our wedding, and I cannot believe it! Time is absolutely flying by! One of the most common questions I have been getting asked lately is about how the planning is going. Since a ton of you seem to be interested, I thought it would be fun to share with y'all what all I have checked off my to-do list, and what else still needs to be done.

First I'll start with some of the things that I have already taken care of. Obviously the list is longer that the ones I am including below, but these are the few things I get asked about most often.

Wedding Planner: I'm going to be writing a full post on this subject at a later date, but I highly recommend getting a planner.. or what I love to call my wedding best friend! I am working with Nicki of Nicki Page Collection and she has been an absolute dream! She has helped me SO MUCH with the parts of the planning that I had no idea where to even start!

Bridal Prep Location: This was actually one of the first things I booked after getting engaged and I am super excited about it! We will be getting ready at The White Room, the perfect spot for me and my gals to get ready for the big day! It has everything you will need- from great lighting, to a beauty bar!

Hair & Makeup: I'm so excited to have the opportunity to have Bride's Best Friend do all of our hair and makeup for the wedding! I have been non-stop scrolling through their Instagram trying to decide exactly what kind of hair style I'm going to want. I don't know how I'm going to choose!

Wedding Band: I held a poll on my Instagram stories for y'all to help me choose which wedding band I should get, and I'm so glad then I liked best won! Diamonds Direct has so many gorgeous wedding bands to choose from, but I ultimately went with then that I couldn't get out of my mind! 6 more months until that baby is on my finger for good!

Catering: We had our tasting with Hamby Catering the other day and Y'ALL, I'm still full! Everything was absolutely amazing, and we are going to have too much so much food it's going to be crazy! Honestly I already can't wait for the leftovers! 

Pre-Wedding Workout: I shared a few weeks ago how I am getting in shape for my wedding, and I am having the absolute best time working out at FitCulture. To read more about FitCulture, and why I am loving it so much, make sure you read this post

Teeth Whitening: I have always been a little insecure about my smile, so when I had the opportunity to get my teeth whitened with Charleston Laser Teeth Whitening before my engagement pictures, I was ecstatic! The results were incredible, and I can't wait to have another session closer to the wedding!

Invitations: I actually placed my wedding invitation order today with Minted and I can't wait for them to come in the mail! They have such a huge variety of invitations to choose from, and I think I found the ones that best represent Cab and I as a couple, and also set the tone for our wedding!

The Dress: I said yes to the dress!! I did a fun try-on session with Stella York a few weeks ago, and it ultimately ended up with me saying yes to my dress!! I am so so excited and absolutely in love with my dress! I can't wait to share with y'all the one I picked (hint: it's not one of the dresses from the try-on post).

As you can see I've gotten a ton of things checked off my wedding planning to-do list! We do still have a few things to take care of though! Here's a quick list:
Groom/Groomsmen Attire
Welcome Bags
Party Favors
Bridal Party/Parents' Gifts
Wedding Night Accommodations

So if you have any recommendations for the things I still have to take care of, send them my way!!

Thanks so much for reading! xo
