Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas! In case you missed it, yesterday’s post was all about my bridal shower outfit. Today is all about the actual bridal shower! My mom and sisters planned the loveliest Christmas tea party in a beautiful venue overlooking the lake. It was perfect!
I am so thrilled to be sharing this post. Nicolas and I have found our dream wedding venue, and I simply couldn’t wait until the wedding to write about it! In case you didn’t read my last post about our wedding cake, we are getting married in Pittsburgh! It is a beautiful city not too far from where we (and the rest of my family) live, and there is an international airport that makes it easy for Nicolas’s family to fly in.
Today’s post is a little life update. I am so excited to share what I’ve been up to!
I’m not sure if I wrote about this before, but I am not a big fan of change. I also have a difficult time when I don’t know what the future holds! I like schedules and plans. 🙂 So when Nicolas and I were planning our big move to the states, I was struggling!
Ecstatic is the only word I can use to describe how I feel about writing this post. I dreamed of finding the perfect wedding gown my entire life. I would watch Disney movie upon Disney movie in awe of how beautiful all of the princesses’ wedding dresses were. As I got older, I watched Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings all the time (and still do hehe. 🙂 ) I can’t believe that I found the one. It still feels so surreal!
One of the things I’ve always loved most about Nicolas is how family-oriented he is. Our families are so important to us, and we are both very close with our siblings (and each other’s siblings!) It was the best thing ever when all of our brothers and sisters met this summer and became instant friends.
Another week has come and gone, and I never got around to sharing my engagement party look! Thank you for the lovely emails and comments on my last wedding update all about the actual engagement party. The wedding planning is going great, and I look forward to sharing more of the process here on my blog!
Eek! I cannot believe how quickly things are moving. I feel as if Nicolas and I just got engaged. This past Sunday was our engagement party, and the best part is that Nicolas’s family was here to celebrate (and will be here for the rest of the week!!!) Our families met for the very first time, and it has been so wonderful.
