How Plan your Wedding Ceremony in a City Park | Charlotte Mecklenburg: Independence Park | The Rose Garden

Independence park is a huge park that has a smaller area within it called the Rose Garden. That is where we had our ceremony. The Rose Garden is absolutely beautiful and I fell in love with the space as soon as I saw it. It was also only $52 bucks an hour to rent which helped us to make the decision quite quickly. I also loved the various ways of entry.

Wedding Planning: Day of Itineraries for the Bride & Groom

Try multitasking as much as possible during the pre-ceremony time. For example, I will be getting my hair and make up done at the same time. I will also order lunch during this time and eat in between getting ready. If you have bridesmaids that will be getting their hair and makeup done with you before the ceremony, make sure to give them an expected time of arrival. Also, after consulting my stylist, she recommended 30 min prep times for hair and makeup. Keep that in mind also. Only you know exactly how you want your day to be so take some time to run through each section mentally and assign time stamps that work for you.

Crate & Barrel Wedding Registry Review

Crate & Barrel is a home good store. They are in the moderate to high spending range and their collections are often unique and of great quality. Needless to say, Joe and I love this store! We've been gifted crate & barrel things numerous times from my mother. We decided to go to the Crate and Barrel at the Grove. The Grove is an out door mall that houses a bunch of cool shops and restaurants. There's a Cheesecake Factory, AMC theatre, and a Giant three Nike store that Joe obsesses over.

Wedding Planning Overload

First, lets get out in the open that being newly engaged is some what of an awkward stage in a young women's life. I constantly introduce Joe as my boy-fianc-hus-friend. I later clear things up by making the intro even longer saying, "soon to be husband" instead of just calling him my fiance in the first place. Fiance is such a fancy word for "We're engaged now" and its a little intimidating to say at my age. Which leads to the next thing, being engaged at 24 is also awkward. I love my hus-friend to death.
