We had our first official wedding shower this past weekend at my home congregation at North Mac Church of Christ! It was so great!

There was delicious cake, wonderful ladies, some of my family, and PRESENTS!

I was overwhelmed by the generosity shown at our shower! We are so very grateful!

Not to mention our kitchen and bathroom is almost fully stocked....

I take no credit.

For our wedding invitations that is.

I have gotten an overwhelming amount of compliments on our wedding invitations and my biggest contribution were the envelopes...the part that gets thrown away.

So thanks be to Kyle Turman who took our measly idea and transformed it into a beautiful invitation that suits us perfectly.

I wanted to wait to post a picture of them until after I had sent them all out and now that I is the final product:
Beautiful, non-cheezy, perfectly us wedding invites.
Now we just have to wait for the RSVPs.

Let's Get Personal!

I had my personal shower last night with all of my OC friends before we leave school and...


It's so funny when 20 christian girls get in a room and talk about THE wedding night. We're so awkward/hilarious. It was fabulous.

My sister and Lacy hosted the shower and they did a great job! We ate food, named lingerie, had a fashion show, and gave some good advice. It was perfect. Everything I imagined it would be. Not to mention I am stocked up on lingerie for at least a month! I got some great goodies!

Here is the night in pictures:

Everyone writing me advice and love notes
My clothesline of goodies

So unsure....
I love each and every one of you! Thank you so much for being a part of that night!

Side note: I got David's ring in! It's shiny and heavy and manly and perfect. He loves it. Check.

Card Business

I should open up my own card business because after this wedding I will be a pro at it. Over the last two weeks I have made and sent out my personal shower invites and addressed and stamped over 200 wedding invites. Exhausting.

My sister and I spent about 5 hours making shower invites, but they turned out really cute in the end so it was worth it.

That's my Maid of Honor.
Not even half way done...

Cute, huh?

My personal shower is in two days!
That's really weird.
Going to showers makes this even more real.
I'm so excited.

Also, I think we have FINALLY gotten out all of the actual wedding invitations (minus 3 that we still need addresses for). They turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Kyle did such a great job designing them! I take no credit, I only addressed and sealed. Now we just have to sit patiently and wait for the hundreds of RSVP's. (Exaggeration.)

We finally have our official wedding party nailed down!

I have asked all my bridesmaids/honorary bridesmaids and David has asked all of his fellows except for a few ushers.

My bridesmaids have known for a while now (seeing as they have dresses)...but I just now completed the task of asking all my honorary bridesmaids.

So here is the official list:

Maid of Honor- Courtney Martin
Bridesmaid- Lori Phillips
Bridesmaid- Kaleigh Hamilton
Bridesmaid- Westin Pickens
Bridesmaid- Lacy Rosenbalm
Junior Bridesmaid- Ashton Martin

Honorary Bridesmaids:
Meagan Branch
Carly Conklin
Carla Dobbs
Hayley Kopf

Flowergirl- Alyssa White

Best Man- Austin Nation
Groomsman- Keith Ellingson
Groomsman- Taylor Walling
Groomsman- Jeremy Schofield
Groomsman- Brett Vanderzee

And...I don't know the official list of ushers (that's David's job) so I'll leave that off for now!

Here are some examples of the cards I made for my bridesmaids when I asked them!


As far as all the other people involved (guest book, cake server, etc.)...I'll figure that out later....:)
