Hey My Lovelies

I know I have been MIA, looking for work and my part time job I have been hemmed up.

Any who…. my wedding madness….

As many of yall know I am getting hitched…. and we are getting married where we met at Tuskegee University.

Skegee had a Hotel and Conference Center on campus and that is where the big event will happen.  Or at least that is the plan today lol

Here are a few outside shots of the Kellogg Conference Center tu1

I am excited to get married at Skegee, it was some of the best times in my life and we met there.  I wish the University didn’t have the calendar taken up so I could get the date I wanted but oh well you win some you loose some lol

Now on to the menu since my MOH has told me I can’t have fried chicken… *which is the biz at the TUCC* I am a bit dis hearten as to what we should serve lol.

So I have one check down our venue…. now for the 20 million other things you have to do for a wedding…. 

‘Til Next Time

Love Peace and All Things Pretty

Are Those Wedding Bells?

NOPE Not Bells!!!!

No that sound you hear is the sound of the Cash Register Cha-Ching….


What is it about getting married that makes folks think that you are Donald Trump in the pockets and have all this money to blow on a 12 hour day?

Vendors hear WEDDING!!! and their eyes light up and you can see them mentally counting the extra money they are going to charge you because it is a WEDDING. 

Who wants to go in to hock for one day?

We are having a destination wedding to help keep costs down, as much as I would love every one to come that is just not realistic.  It will be a hard push just to get my family and his family there and not have any body mad at us.  Clearly its going to be some mad folks… sorry…. 

From the dress to the flowers to the FOOD *OMG who knew food would cost enough to buy a tropical island* to gift bags, to wedding party gifts, the list goes on and on…..

My head is spinning

Only thing that helps me not to go crazy is I am the DIY queen so I will be making a few things for the wedding, but not my wedding dress…. 

Any body have tips to help keep costs down? I am all ears….

‘Til Next Time

Love Peace and All Things Pretty
