Happily Ever Johnson: Updates

It has been so cold and windy lately, I'm not ready for winter lol. Well, I know I haven't updated you guys on the wedding planning lately and I wanted to have things in place before making any announcements or updates. We have decided to change venues and the wedding back to the states. It was somewhat of a mad rush to book a space. I got a little frustrated at some point because the plans were changing and I was worried about everything and if plans were going to stay concrete. I can breathe now because we officially have a venue! I felt like I was starting all over again with making appointments to visit venues, doing walk through, asking all those questions again and breaking down each price to make sure we were getting the best value and won't spend outside our budget. Our original date was not available anymore so we are now getting married in June of 2017. It was good that we have a later date so we have some more time to plan. So now it is back to deciding on center pieces, favors, escort cards, decor and so much more. The dress that I was going to purchase was not going to fit this new venue and kind of glad I didn't commit to it at the time. I started looking at dresses that I've tried on before and went out myself to try on some dresses. It was actually nice because I was able to look at the dresses and hear my opinion on them in way. And I can say that I will be saying yes to a dress! When I saw myself in the dress, I saw myself getting married in it. It was everything I was looking for and I didn't want to take it off lol! Of course you guys won't see it until the big day but I love it! I have the bridesmaid dresses picked out and the groomsmen tuxes as well. We also figured out what the groom was wearing as well! It seems like things are starting to really come together now and I'm getting excited! I am now trying to get the guest list together, collect correct addresses, figure out seating charts, invitations and so on. We also need a new hashtag for the wedding and I can't think of one lol I'm hoping I don't drive myself too crazy but glad I have the help of family and friends. I have been on Pinterest like crazy looking for ideas and have been finding some really great stuff. I just want this vision for our wedding to come together and we remember our special day forever.

See you guys Thursday!

  2. Just take a breathe and all will workout. It sounds like you have loads going on, but at least the later date is better for you. I used to help planning wedding events so I know it's a lot of work. <3

    1. Thank you so much! Yes I do have a lot going on and glad we have a little more time for everything!

  3. I feel like picking out the venue is the most important part so I'm glad you finally have everything figured out! Glad things are coming together for you!

    1. Yes it was important because I was basing my dress off the venue. I'm glad that part is over lol! Thank you Tanya!!

  4. That's great to see everything's coming together for you! Can't wait to see your dress!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
