Wedding: what I've been up to lately

I'm getting married in less than 55 days. 
Craziness, I tell you. 
Let's chat about what's been going down. 
Cory and I have chosen our wedding bands.
Silly as it may sound, I first fell in love with this Sydney Evan's love ring for it's uniqueness and simplicity, but I instead found a classic diamond band to go with my engagement ring, and let me tell you, I want to wear it, like, right now. (I'll still take the Sidney Evan's one too though!)

I found this Rope Vase DIY on Green Wedding Shoes Blog, and it gave me some more inspiration for what I already had in my mind for table decor. Although I'll be scrapping the neon for coral and grey, I really like the overall look of having clusters of wine bottles housing bundles of baby's breathe. 
Did I mention that I have one of the best friends/bridesmaids ever who is helping me with all of this?! 

I found my wedding earrings via Anthropologie. 
I love how delicate they look, and they didn't break the bank.

I have my wedding flowers booked and ready to go, and sent in this photo as my inspiration.
 I chose a blend of peaches, mango, and corals for my bridesmaids with more creams and peaches for myself. 
Flowers were never the number one thing on my wedding list, so I'm placing complete confidence in my florist and will not see them until the day of the wedding. Although I cannot wait to see the finished result! 

And the best thing I've accomplished for this wedding is changing my figure.
29 pounds and 15 inches are gone, people!!
I'm happier, healthier, and a stronger gal than I was 8 months ago.
Oh yeah, and the above photo was taken at my gym. They don't play around.

And that, my friends, has been some of the fun stuff going around here (well, besides my bridesmaids gifts which I LOVE, but one of my girls has a blog of her own - hi there, Erica! - so I can post their gifts just yet). I still have tons of more stuff to do, and I'm so thankful for the family and friends who have kept me level-headed through this whole thing.

Congrats on losing the weight, Whitney! I would love to do the same... What did you find to be most effective? Did you workout by yourself at the gym or with a trainer?
