Meet the Hargroves!: 6 months until we get hitched

We've officially reserved our wedding date and it's only about six months away! That's right...we're tying the knot in April of 2017. Time to get planning! Here's what we've accomplished so far in only a week of being engaged:

THE VENUE




We've reserved our venue! The ceremony and reception will both be held at Little Kings Shuffle Club in Athens. Little Kings is one of me and Matt's favorite bars in Athens. They  have a great indoor area that has beautiful arched windows and a vintage-industrial look with lots of cozy seating. And the outdoor area is spacious and has a quirky vibe with cool graffiti pieces on the walls, a boat with a deck built around it, and an old red and yellow tin can rv (all of which will be great for photo ops). The ceremony will happen outside then the guests will head inside for a cocktail hour heavy on the mimosas and bloody marys. Then back outside for a brunch buffet. Speaking of which...

THE CATERER

 

We've nailed down a caterer! White Tiger Gourmet, a hip, quaint neighborhood eatery with delicious modern Southern food will be serving up a yummy brunch buffet for our guests. We almost have a menu nailed down and so far we're thinking a biscuit bar with toppings like pimento cheese, jam and honey, cheese grits, veggie frittatas, fruit, bacon, and other goodies. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

OTHER THINGS WE'VE DONE

- Figured out our budget
- Booked our officiant
- Started our guest list
- Chose our wedding party (we will officially ask them at the beginning of November)
- Started our registries and wedding website

WHAT WE NEED TO DO IN THE NEXT MONTH

- Book a photographer
- Decide on wedding party attire
- Find a florist
- Reserve a block of hotel rooms
- Order cakes and rentals

HOW WE'RE FEELING

Pretty good so far! We had talked about eloping to Vegas and then having a big party with our family and friends to celebrate. But somehow plans have evolved into a fairly traditional yet casual wedding. Some of the planning is stressful, mostly because I have no idea what I'm doing, but as we get new things booked and figured out, we get more and more excited.

Stay tuned for more wedding updates! #mattandchelseagethitched

XOXO
