Wedding ABC’s: Part 1

David and I are celebrating our first wedding anniversary on Sunday! It’s hard to believe it’s already been almost a year – Time has FLOWN by! I plan to finish my recaps (I only have one more!) before our actual anniversary on Sunday, but I’m posting this on my newlywed blog so I thought it’d be fun to post here too! I know most of you have probably seen these pictures and read posts on a lot of these topics, but it’s a fun little recap of the major details! My posts this week will be focused on our wedding and first year of marriage, so I’ll probably be double posting most of them. If you’re not following me over there yet, please do – I miss some of my Lucky in Love readers, and I post there much more frequently!

I know several different blogs have taken part in the wedding ABC’s posts, and I just love them. But, I’m going to split my post into two parts like Tara did since I’m a bit wordy and I like to include lots of details! Here we go.

Attending:

I think we had about 250-275 guests! We started dating our freshman year of high school, so we had lots of mutual friends and families from high school along with our own families, friends from childhood, and friends from college.

Bridesmaids:

I had a matron of honor (my sister), a maid of honor (my best friend), three bridesmaids, and a junior bridesmaid.

Cakes:

Our main cake was made by Cakes by Carrie, and the groom’s cake was made by Cheri’s Bakery and incorporated David’s love of the KU Jayhawks and reffing soccer!

Dress:

My dress was from David’s Bridal and I just loved it!

Engagement:

We were engaged for just over 15 months, which was nice since I was living 2 hours away and finishing my undergrad for 14 of those months. It seriously flew by!

Flowers:

All of our flowers were completely DIY! It was our biggest project, and I definitely couldn’t have done it without the help of my mom, SILs, and MIL. I LOVED how they all turned out, and have since done the flowers for a friend’s wedding!

We honeymooned at The Royal Cancun and absolutely LOVED it! We can’t wait to go back!

Invitations:

Our invitations were DIY too, from kits I actually found at TJ Maxx! I was so happy with how they turned out!

Justice of the Peace:

Our pastor was the father of one of my good friend’s from high school, and also someone who had known both David and I since we started dating. He did such a great job!

Keepsakes:

We have too many to count with all of the little details I made. Our main one would be our framed engagement picture with the photo mat that we had every sign instead of a guestbook. It’s on display in our dining room!

Ladies Night:

My bachelorette party/weekend was so much fun! My MOH did a fantastic job of planning it!
