One Month 'til I Do

Can someone please explain to me where the last 10 months have gone?

10 months & 1 day ago, this guy got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
We had a whole eternity of time in front of us in which to enjoy being engaged, plan a wedding, and buy a house. It seemed like forever.

But somehow, here we are, one month away from saying "I do" and celebrating the evening away. Where the heck has time gone? How did the days and weeks and months slip by that fast? Y'all seriously weren't kidding when you told me that our engagement was going to fly by.
Every single one of you was absolutely right. It flies.
One month y'all, one month. Soon enough, we'll be #happilymerritt for real.

The bachelor and bachelorette weekends have come and gone.

The invitations have been sent and the RSVPs received.
The bridal portraits have been taken and the very best photograph was selected.
{& this is still as close as y'all will get to knowing anything about the dress until July 30!}

The bridesmaids' dresses and groomsmen's suits have arrived and their gifts have been purchased.
The bridal luncheon and rehearsal dinner have been planned with invitations sent out.
The wedding ceremony and reception music are almost finalized.

Dance lessons have begun... more so for me, not the crazy dancing guy that is my husband-to-be.

There are 30 days to go and I can only imagine how quickly these days will pass based on how fast the last 10 months went. Cheers to the final 30 days of our engagement!


  1. Hoping you get to savor all these last moments! The best is yet to come, but right now looks pretty darn amazing!

  2. And this next month will fly by too! I tried to be really intentional on our wedding day about just soaking in every moment and trying to remember every detail because it flies by too!

  4. EEK! I can't believe it's one month away! It's going to fly by so enjoy every minute of it. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. Time flies when you're having fun and enjoying life!! Congrats to being so close! xo, Biana

  6. I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU! And also I just can't wait to see pictures!

  7. That's so exciting! Enjoy of every last minute of being engaged!

  8. oh my gosh! time really does fly. i feel like i've been a part of it and i should be allowed to come to the wedding. haha. jk. but really. wow! you guys have done a lot in the last 10 months and 1 day, i bet you'll have a baby in another 10 months and 1 day (get it, because in a month you're getting married and 9 months is how long it takes to cook a baby..... actually, i think it is technically 10 months so my joke is ruined).

  9. It's SO CLOSE!! It's gonna be here before you know it, and you're going to be the most beautiful bride!

  10. Soak up the next 30 days! I feel like I blinked and everything was over. Between the errands and everyone being in town I wish I would have taken a step back every now and then to see what was happening, enjoy it!
