DIY and Projects

10 months and counting.

July 20, 2014

Since we’ve been engaged for nearly a full year, and by the time we actually get married it will be a solid 20 months, we’ve had the luxury of taking our time planning the wedding. Some things- like the venue- had to happen before the big move, and other things- like buying my dress- have happened gradually.

This is absolutely not my strong suite, but lucky for me, it absolutely is Adams (we’ve got a nice yin and yang thing happening here). So we’re pulling together some wedding inspiration, talking about colors and decorations, mapping out save the dates (!), and genuinely cranking on all the things that will make our wedding us.Β Because we’re fancyΒ  Adam’s super creative, we’re organizing everything in a nifty display that looks pretty rad and adds some nice pizazz to the bedroom (all credit for this idea: Adam).

Stay tuned for more wedding updates (/arguments) in the next year. T-minus 10 months is officially on! #zwirdakbash
