ABC's of our wedding

Chris and I have been married for 6 months and a day! I could post about our wedding daily but don't think it is as exciting to everyone else as it is to me. I have seen this post done on many different blogs and think it is a great wedding recap! In honor of our 6 month anniversary... here are the ABC's of our wedding.

A- Attending
We had around 155 people in attendance.

B- Bridesmaids
I had 6 amazing bridesmaids. My sister was my maid of honor, I had 3 friends from high school, and 2 friends from college. 

Our cakes were one of my favorite parts of the entire wedding. I had seen my cake in a picture 2 years before our wedding. I always thought it was beautiful and I had to have it. Not only did it taste amazing, but it looked amazing!! If you are getting married in the Houston area, I have the best cake lady to reccomend!

D- Dress
I knew this was my dress when I first put it on!

E- Engagement
Our engagement was very low key and perfect! We got engaged at our house and then went to dinner and celebrated. Here are a few of our engagement pictures.

F- Flowers
I loved our flowers! We used an Aggie run company but I do not remember what they were called. They were awesome!

Chris also had 6 groomsmen. His brother and 5 friends from highschool/college. We went to highschool and college with all of the groomsmen. Great group of guys!

H- Honeymoon
We had an amazing honeymoon. We stayed 7 nights in Antigua at the Sandals resort. It was paradise.

I- Invitations
Our invitations were a task. I wanted to make them myself and life happens. They ended up having to be reprinted. They turned our great! I know I have a picture but I can't find it.

J- Justice of the peace
I guess this means preacher... Chris's youth minister married us. It was very special. He also married his uncle a few years before.

K- Keepsakes
We didn't want a guestbook because we didn't think we would look at it. We choose a picture that our guest would sign around. We haven't found the perfect place to hang it just yet but I loved how it turned out.

L- Ladies Night
We went to San Antonio & New Branfuels for my bachelorette party. It was so much fun and we have a ton of great memories from it. My girls really know how to throw a party!!

M- Music
We used traditional music for the most part. We walked into the reception to the Aggie War Hymn.

N- Newlyweds
I still definitely consider us newlyweds!

O- Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
My something old was a coin that was tapped to the bottom of my shoe.
My something new was my dress (original, I know). My something blue was stitching on a hankerchief that Chris's grandmother sewed for me. I can't remember my something borrowed. ( I think it may have been one of my bridesmaids deodorant)

P- Photography
Our photographer was amazing!! He really caught some great moments.

Q- Question Popping
This is similar to the engagement question right?!? Here is a picture of our ring collection.

R- Reception
Was so much fun, here are a few pictures from the reception.

S- Shoes
Nothing to special. They were a white/cream color with pearls & bling. Here is a picture of some of the bridesmaid shoes. I loved them!

T- Trash the Dress

U- Unique
We had our reception in a barn... I don't really know anything that was unique. It wasn't a real barn, it had been totally renovated into a wedding venue. 

V- Vows
We did the traditional wedding vows. 

W- Wedding Woes
I don't know what to put here so I will put my favorite picture :-) 

Don't think so!!

Y- Young Kids
My little sister was our flower girl. My little brother and Chris's little brother were ushers. 

This post took me forever!! I hope you enjoyed it. If you have done this on your blog, leave me a comment so I can go look at it!! Now, I am going to sleep!

Have a great rest of the week and stay warm!!

Cute post! I think I could have talked about my wedding everyday for about the first year. Then it may have slowly decreased to every other day, and so forth :). Your dress is gorgeous and I love the pic of you and your ladies in the robes--such a cute idea!
