It’s official… Wednesdays have become my new favorite day of the blog week! Ever since sharing my first wedding update last week (hilariously dubbed “wedding sledding” by my father) I’ve been in a tizzy of excitement realizing that I get to share this entire process with you! Having a group of friends (albeit virtual! :) to share my excitement with has already been the sweetest thing, so thank you for sharing in the fun of this season with me!
Last week I asked you to vote on Instagram whether you wanted to hear how Andrew and I met or when we’re getting married for the first update… me and Andrew’s story won out by a couple hundred of votes, so today I’m so excited to share when it is we’re getting married!
Let me start out by saying that I won’t be sharing the actual date here on the blog. I know if I was reading this from a blogger I follow, I’d be thinking, “Wait, no! I’m dying to know! Why not?!” To answer that, it really is just a small way to make sure I’m fully present during the week-of and, most importantly, on the big day itself!
I know I’ll be extra emotional/excited/tired/caffeinated/overwhelmed that week/weekend, so taking away the added pressure of social media will help me to soak everything in as best as I can! At least, that’s my hope! :)
I’m already looking forward to “surprising” y’all the day after, and rest assured, I’ll still be sharing all of the planning details leading up to the wedding! Plus, the week after the wedding (AKA the week we’re honeymooning… eek!!!) is when I’ll be covering all of the date-specific details that I won’t be sharing beforehand. Needless to say, it’s going to be a fun week here on Lonestar Southern, and I can hardly wait!
All that being said… I am so excited to share the month Andrew and I will be getting married. Drumroll please…
Yes, y’all, as in June 2019! If you do the math, it’s only seven and a half months away! (But who’s counting, right?) That honestly feels so soon, and I already know these next few months are going to fly by.
I’ll be sharing the reason why we’re getting married in June, specifically, in a future blog post, but that’s a whole other story! For now, let’s just say I am over the moon to get married in this picture perfect, summery month, however cliché it may be. I never imagined I’d be a June bride!
Now on to the “where.” Since both of our families, and many of our friends, are from Dallas, Dallas was such a natural, easy decision for us in terms of location. I’m so excited that we will be getting married at a church and dancing the night away at a reception venue that are each very special to us and to our families. Like I mentioned above, I’ll be spilling more about the exact locations after the fact!
I’m resisting the urge to type out my vision and ideas for the look and feel of the wedding right this second, but I think that’s a post for another day. Would y’all be interested in seeing some “wedding inspiration” for an upcoming Wedding Sledding post? Let me know, if so!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my quick intro into wedding planning thus far, it’s that planning a wedding in Dallas, and in June, is not for the faint of heart. I figured it would be a busy month for wedding vendors, but could never have predicted how far in advance many wedding-related services would already be booked up! Oh, little naive Kate.
Because of that, I’m feeling so incredibly thankful that we have the big things like the church, reception venue and a few other important pieces of the puzzle all booked and ready to go (can’t wait to share more about these!) and that now the fun, creative process can begin! My wheels are already spinning, and I can’t wait to bring y’all along!
Thank y’all again for sharing in this season with me! Don’t forget, if there’s a specific wedding-related post you’d like to see, let me know in the comments!
Love from Texas,
