Bride’s Diary: Last-Minute Wedding Planning Checklist

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

Well, it is about three weeks before the big day. I can’t believe how quickly time flew by since I got engaged a year ago! Since I still have a couple more important tasks to complete, I have made a wedding planning checklist of my last minute details that I am working on.

To-Do Before Wedding:

-Complete the final fitting for my wedding dress

-Order thank you cards and matching address labels. I’m loving these to go with my garden wedding theme:

-I still need to meet with my event planner tomorrow to finalize which linens, plates, and flowers I will use. I am completely inspired by these tablescapes below and am doing a combination of the two, with shades of pink, white and green flowers, off-white linens, bistro lights and hanging lanterns:

-Finalize ceremony vows

-Order wedding programs and wedding place cards (like these):

-Pick up bridesmaids gifts

- Make a schedule for the wedding weekend which includes a contact list of wedding vendors

- Attend the pre-wedding hair and makeup consultation (very excited for this one!)

-Meet with DJ for final walk-through at the venue

-Get marriage license (kind of a big one)

After I complete this list, then I will be able to breathe a bit easier! I can’t wait to unveil how everything turns out for my big day. Cheers!

Meet Alison

Alison met David over six years ago while attending the University of Oregon. Alison and David are grateful for everything that they have gone through together while dating, since it has made them stronger and molded them into the couple that they are today.

David proposed to Alison at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and they are excited to get married August 25, 2012 in Atherton, CA.

Bride’s Diary: It’s Official!

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

Wow! I can’t believe that on Saturday it will already be one month since Adam and I said I do. Everything has flown by so quickly these past few weeks but we both survived! The wedding was more than we could have ever imagined. In the morning I drank some champagne and watched Sex And The City with my girls—so fun and a great way to set the tone for the rest of the day. The weather was perfect and everything (well almost) ran smoothly. I just learned to go with the flow and be as relaxed as possible.

If I could give you one piece of advice, relax! Some things are going to be beyond your control and there is no point in stressing out about those things you cannot change. Enjoy every moment, good or bad, and know that everything will turn out the way it’s meant to. Take in as many moments as you can because it goes by so fast.

With that, here are some highlights from the big day! Photos compliments of Rock The Image.

Meet Ashley

Ashley and Adam met a little over three years ago when they were both out with friends at a bar. They spent the night talking about sports and dealing with other friends’ drama. A few days later they went on their first date and have been inseparable since. Three years later, Adam popped the question to a very surprised Ashley!

Ashley and Adam were married April 28, 2012 at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, California.
