Wedding Update

As of today…the wedding is only six months away! I can’t believe it’s been three months since I first shared the news! Plans are definitely in full swing -- Brianna (aka "Breezy") has found and ordered the dress of her dreams (I‘ve seen it and it’s perfect for her!) The beautiful bridesmaid and flower girl dresses have been ordered, as well. The photographer has been booked, as has the church, reception hall and rehearsal dinner. The guest list has been compiled and finalized. The wedding rings, invitations, flowers and fabric for the reception tables and other decorative items have been purchased. They’ve had multiple pre-marriage sessions with the Pastor conducting their wedding (each time Brennan is home, including this week). In addition, this week they picked out the tuxes! (Whew!)

They both have a very busy summer ahead and they’re trying to have nearly everything done by August. It’s a tall order, but Breezy is a planner extraordinaire and there are lots of us looking forward to helping out any way we can! ; )


Oh…this reminds me! Before I go, I want to quickly share with you a gift idea for a special bride you might know. Are you familiar with
Lisa Leonard Designs? She’s a very talented jewelry designer, and a true delight to work with. This past Christmas, Tom and I bought one of her necklaces for Brianna. We chose an existing design and asked her to alter it slightly for what we had in mind. She was happy to oblige. As you can see, one heart has their marriage monogram, the other has their wedding date. Breezy positively loves it and wears it nearly every day! If you know a special bride-to-be who might like this, or possibly one of Lisa's other designs, stop by and shop her site. If you type in the code “welcome 15” on the order page, you’ll save 15% on your order! (Don't know anyone getting married? She also has some great gift ideas for Mother’s Day, as well!)

Happy weekend, my friends! We're looking forward to enjoying a little more time with Brennan before he heads back to school.

First off, that necklace was a fantastic idea...beautiful. I've seen LL designs around blogdom before, just not that particular item.

They are such an adorable couple...so excited for them that the big day is not too far off.

Julie said...

Your son's wedding is 2 weeks after my daughter's. We are Oct. 3rd. We've gotten some of the things on your list done, but still many to go... like finding a photographer that isn't as costly as the reception....

I've got my dress, we've ordered, Court's and the bridesmaids dresses... we've booked the site, reception, DJ.... moving along one step at a time!

Happy planning to you friend. I'm going to go and check out that necklace, now!

Sweet one I'm so excited for your family. This is a beautiful and special time. I pray that even in the busy times that each one of you especially your son and soon to be daughter in love will each stop and treasurer each moment.

I pray a blessed Wedding day and Marriage for both of them.

Love ya.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Tracy, What an adorable couple! I am so excited to see wedding photos someday. I like the idea of the Lisa Leonard Design necklace. It is fun to give special and unique gifts. I am sure Brianna is getting one dear mother-in-law.
