Hey beauties!! Wow it has been a bit since I have posted. My goal for next year is to post at least once a week. Things will be much easier once wedding and moving into our home have taken place.…. I will say- this has possibly been one of the most CRAZY SEASONS OF MY LIFE. I do not recommend graduating college, starting a job, wedding planning, purchasing a home, and building a brand all at once. ALTHOUGH, this time of life has taught me so much patience and actively surrendering control.
SO today I just wanted to do a life update. There is SO much to be thankful for!! I feel like I can relate to so many people in different seasons. So if you are not in the midst of planning a wedding- please keep reading!
Lets start with HONEYMOON WOOP. I’m not going to say where we are going…. all I will say is that we will be enjoying lots of beach time & marg time! I am so excited for some serious R&R time with Alex. YA GIRL NEEDS A VAYCAY- stat. Wedding planning can be exhausting and stressful…. I can’t wait for a break! I have spent each month ordering a few new things online to wear on the HM. Honestly y’all, the sale racks have been so good recently!! It has seriously been so fun shopping for the HM. I can’t leave for this trip with out the right essentials for our honeymoon!! I have decided to write up a little checklist for y’all. You can use this for any trip in general too! I have spent most of my time on the sale rack at anthropology, princess polly, ASOS, free people & urban! I also got a ton of swimsuits for SO CHEAP at zaful and shein :). If you are in need of affordable/ cute (& a lil sexy… aka HONEYmoon) definitely check out zaful and shein. I’m not going to share what I purchased until after the big trip! I gotta keep y’all on your toes! But I will make sure to do swipe up’s on my insta (@emmyhennyyy).
So heres a good travel list for the beach/ honeymoon!!
Flow-y pants and dresses- urban, ASOS, princess polly, sabo skirt
lots of swim suits- zaful, H&M, topshop, shein
hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, FLOATIES!!! (where we are going doesn’t sell floaties lol)
sandals, heels, lingerie 😉 hehe – DSW, ASOS
Enough about the honeymoon.. you’re probably thinking why is she talking about the honeymoon when she hasn’t told us squat. I gotta keep y’all levitating on your toes!!
House update- So naturally, we will be closing 3 days before the wedding day….. so we won’t move anything in until after the honeymoon. Our beautiful cabinets and tile are all in!! It is seriously so close to being done. I will say.. all of the paperwork and what not is a headache. I would recommend closing wayyyyy before marriage begins. It is very stressful when it’s all happening at once! But will turn into one of the biggest blessings.
Wedding Planning- Everything is pretty much set in stone! We have all our vendors and everything seems to be finalized with them. All we have left is to create a seating chart for all the guests. I may print of a few pictures and what not. I also need to get a bridal portrait blown up so people can see it at the wedding! 30 days out is for sure all the small things. ALSO- nail appointments, getting flu shots, hair cut appointments & just making sure I am all healthy for the big day and the HM.
I am just going to be real with y’all! I have recently been anxious and stressed and have decided to not post on my blog or youtube because my thoughts have been everywhere. I wanted to make sure to be intentional with all posts and videos. I have let my feelings of control take away a lot of the joy that the Lord gifts us with. I am learning that God is in control of all the details of my life. I am assured that everything will be alright and have learned to just continue praising Him. Joy is not about all of the good times or those special happy moments. Happiness is a very temporary feeling and joy is something we can choose to be constant. SO today choose joy no matter what your circumstances are!
Have the best weekend!! About to head to my bach party WOOP 🙂
