Wedding Wednesday: The Proposal and a Few Updates

11:06:00 AM

We are making some progress this week! (only 297 days to go LOL) We picked our main wedding color, started to ask our bridal party (more on that next week), and now are in the works of finalizing some vendors. Things are happening people!

First things first, our proposal story was published on How He Asked! You can see more of ours here.  Seriously, it was so much fun to write about our little love story and I hope you all enjoy it. 
How adorable is this vintage initial ring box?! Ps. This may or may not contain our main wedding color. Wink wink
I'm really loving these hangers as bridal gifts for the big day! What do you think?
