Wedding Recap, Wedding Tips Needed, and The X Factor

Nick and I just got back from my cousin’s wedding. We always have such a good time when we get to leave Columbus for a while, even if just for a day.

I gave the camera to my mom to take a picture of us before we left the hotel, but she seems to have trouble with cameras that are six years old…Wedding Recap 1

I’m no fashionista, but I do know that animal prints are “in”, so I thought I’d show off my tight snakeskin skirt on my blog. It was a score at Kohls. The shirt is from White House Black Market. The wedding was pretty casual so I thought this outfit worked out well. It was perfect for dancing…..Wedding Recap 2

We will not be playing the Electric Slide at our wedding, but I’m always down for it at other people’s weddings (I guess).

If you read my blog regularly, you know I’m obsessed with wedding cake. I was slightly sad to see that the wedding “cake” was cupcakes, however, these were AMAZING. They were moist and the buttercream frosting was some of the best I’ve ever had. It had that very defined almond extract taste, which I love. Two things I will not have at my wedding; fondant and cupcakes (I’m a cake snob, what can I say?!).Wedding Recap 3

I haven’t talked about my own wedding plans on the blog yet, but today I’m going to give a little insight. Basically Nick and I are doing a destination wedding sometime in the Fall of next year (I don’t want to give the date on my blog because of those weirdos who read blogs for information like this!). We are going to Bald Head Island, North Carolina and I couldn’t be more excited. So far I have;

  • Bought my dress
  • Chosen my bridesmaids
  • Picked a florist
  • Picked a photographer
  • Picked an officiant on the island
  • Chosen the caterer
  • Chosen the location of the ceremony and reception
  • Created a list of the people we are inviting
  • Created the invitations

Still left to do is;

  • Send the invites
  • Register for gifts (FUN!)
  • Pick out bridesmaid dresses
  • Create the programs
  • Write the vows
  • Create centerpieces

This is where I need your help! Do you have any tips for writing vows? Do you have any ideas for beach wedding centerpieces? I love the simple idea that they used at last night’s wedding (below). I want to choose something that can be made by my crafty aunts, or that really doesn’t cost a whole lot.Wedding Recap 4

Last but not least, have you been watching The X Factor?. I’ll admit, I’m not a huge fan of the show, however, one of the final contestants, Josh Krajcik, used to work at the burrito shop that Nick manages!! Yep, Nick comes home every day with a new story of a newspaper or TMZ having called the store and interviewed him, or come in with cameras to tape “Josh’s previous place of employment”. It’s AWESOME! And, if you haven’t heard Josh sing, you’re missing out. Check out his first audition video here (it’s the third one to the right). And of course, VOTE FOR JOSH!!!!

QUESTION: What are your tips for writing wedding vows? Any ideas for beach/fall-themed centerpieces?
