Pinteresting Wednesday!

Ever since I've started planning our wedding, I've fallen in love with the color turquoise.

I've searched pinterest over and over again for turquoise wedding inspiration and now I've found myself wanting to incorporate turquoise in so many other aspects of my life including our home!

Wedding Woe's

Well y'all. 

I think I had my first wedding break down last night. 

Now that our save the dates are out I've been hearing "yes's and no's and maybe's and we'll see's."

It's hitting me that people that I really want at our wedding might not be there. 

I guess I was kind of in denial at first and just thought people would find a way to come to Mexico. Now I'm realizing that's not necessarily the case. 

It's really getting to me especially because some of the "maybes" were getting are my family who I have always pictured being there on my wedding day. 

I also got the much anticipated email from the Travel Agent last night with the group rates and they're a lot higher than what we had originally thought. We did a lot of research on resorts and time of year to go before we decided on a resort so this is unexpected. We've also been watching expedia and travelocity and the group prices she gave us are a lot higher than those sites. 

I'm frustrated. 

I'm worried. 

If these prices are so high, all those "we'll see's" and "maybe's" are going to turn to "no's." 

As much as I wanted a small wedding, only having 15-20 people there isn't really what I wanted. 

I was thinking like 40-50.

I just need to say a big fat

UUGGGHHHHHHH

right now.

Honestly, I just needed to vent and get y'alls help to remind me what it's all about. 

I know at the end of the day it's about me and John. It's about us getting married and us starting the rest our lives together.

A destination wedding is US and what WE wanted and I know we shouldn't let anyone take that away from us.


I know at the end of that night in December I will be happier than ever and who was there won't matter.

I just have to remember during the planning process what it's actually all about...

How did y'all handle your wedding woe's??

Wedding Wednesday - Engagement Pics!

For those of you who don't know, John and I had our first date at the zoo! 

So what's better than taking our engagement pictures at the Houston Zoo where it all started???

It seems like EVERYONE in Houston takes their engagement pictures at Hermann Park or Discovery Green and I want something different. Something that fits as as a couple. I don't want that same colored wall that everyone has in their engagement pictures. I want giraffes, elephants, greenery. DIFFERENT!

I've searched Pinterest and the interwebs and found these CUTE pictures as Zoo Engagement inspiration. 

The last 2 were actually taken right here in Houston at our zoo and we will for sure be recreating some of these shots!

I've already called upon Emily who took our Christmas pics and can't wait to see what she can pull off for us!

Did you take your engagement pictures somewhere special to you as a couple?

(And because these pics came from Pinterest I'm linking up with my good friend Michelle!)
