Our first engagament part is this weekend! Where Wade and I will also be revealing the date of our wedding. Until then, it's a secret. My lips are sealed.
Do I enjoy reading about weddings and/or wedding planning on other blogs?....YES
Is wedding planning now going to become a big part of my life for the next few (weeks?...months?...years?....I can't tell yet, remember?)....YES
Is this my blog and I can technically write about whatever I want anyways?....YES
First things first, if this happens to be your first time to Enticing Healthy Eating, welcome! And if you'd like to catch up by reading all about the proposal story, just head on over to HERE.
Since becoming engaged on January 2, 2015, I've only just started to really dive in to the wedding planning stage. With Wade and I's first engagement party coming up this weekend I'm really starting to get excited about seeking out more planning resources and getting other's advice--particularly in the "how to plan a wedding without ending up in mounds of debt afterwards" category.
One of my favorite series featured every Tuesday on Budget Savvy Bride is this Wedding Budget Tip deal. And yes, I would LOVE to have a couple of signature cocktails at our future wedding, especially if it means saving money on alcoholic beverages overall.
Because I'm still a Disney girl at heart, I had to point out this article, "Engagement Inspiration for Disney Diehards". Reenacting the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti scene for an engagement photo shoot?...I like this idea.
With so many different types of ideas, including many DIY tutorials, real weddings, and honeymoons, you could get lost for hours.
This website is one of the best wedding planning resources I've found that really speaks to my own personal preference for themes and decor at a wedding. A mix of boho, vintage, classic, and romantic. That is what I picture as the main themes in Wade and I's future wedding. It just fits best with our style.
Green Wedding Shoes recently released this article for "Top 26 Coolest Places to get Married in the U.S.". I cannot pick just one off of this list as my favorite, they're all amazing!
It includes a to-do checklist, a place to store guests contacts, a nifty tool to break down your budget and keep track of your expenses, and a place to store your list of vendors. Not to mention a handy little tracker at the bottom that counts down the days to your wedding!
If you're interested in checking out my own wedding ideas, I have two Pinterest board so far dedicated to Wade and I's future big day.
My wedding dress ideas can be found HERE.

Maybe we have the same wedding style?...
Cupid has, indeed, hit me straight in the heart apparantly with the extravagant amount of excitement I have for this upcoming weekend. Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's weekend as well!
