A little while back Austin and I received our first wedding gift from the sweet team at Graphic Image NY! I was sooooo excited because it was so unexpected and so sweet of them. All of the personal touches got me in my feels real quick. They even included our wedding hashtag, wedding date, and I think the real kicker was the Mrs. Passmore on the passport sleeve! Ugh, so sweet!!!
I love all of their amazing leather products and I know we will be using these gifts for years to come and to look back on. I'm ready for 2020 to use my cute planner to put all our dates in for upcoming wedding deadlines and events. The guest book is so beautiful, it will be the perfect touch for our entrance table :) Everything is made from beautiful quality leathers and can be personalized in so many ways. I'm also loving the tiny little notebook that is great for keeping in my purse to jot things down or little notes to remember for planning.
Right now Graphic Image is having a friends & family sale with 25% off your purchase with code WEAREFAMILY; perfect timing for any fall weddings or Christmas shopping (if you are an early shopper like that).
Thank you to my Graphic Image NY fam for the sweetest wedding gift!!
Starting to plan your wedding can be quite intimidating! Right when we got engaged, my bestie gave me The Bride's Essential Book of Lists by Amy Nebens and the entire book narrows down each detail to plan and when to plan it based on your timeline.
We are about halfway there and I'm in the thick of planning and lemme tell you, this book has been such a help! It also has a spot for business cards which is nice because who actually keeps up with those but then still needs them later? ME!
Planning so far has been pretty fun for me. I've had my wedding Pinterest board going since I was in high school... literally. Austin is also very involved which I LOVE because I'm not the best at making solid decisions super fast and he's got the right amount of opinionated personality to balance me out.
Here's my list of to-do's I've got going on for October/Nov (Items you should be doing at least 6 months out if you have a slightly longer engagement. My plan is to hopefully have everything wrapped up by the time Christmas rolls around so that we can just chill and enjoy the holiday season.
1.) CAKE: We met with our bakery last week to taste test and figured out what we needed size and style wise.
2.) CATERING: I need to solidify this still. We've known what we want for a while but just haven't bit the bullet and booked them yet. Honestly if you are booking your catering through a non-caterer I think it's less of a big deal on how advanced you plan it.
3.) SEND SAVE THE DATES: Okay people, if you follow me on Instagram you have seen a sneak peek of our engagement pictures. I'm so excited to get the rest. There are sooooo many Save-the-date options on so many different websites that I'm trying to narrow them down. Right now I'm looking at Shutterfly, Minted, & Basic Invite
4.) FLOWERS: Scheduling a time to meet with the florist soon, now that we have an idea on things like if our cake needs it and the total amount of people that need flowers it will be a lot easier to have her plan everything we need.
5.) FINISH REGISTRY: Yeah.... this is hard for us. We both have a lot of things that we won't need to register for because we have lived on our own and needed things throughout college. I will probably do a whole post on what we are registering for and what not a little later on.
Starting to feel a bit more accomplished in planning and it feels so good!!
