DIY Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes | Harry Potter & Donuts

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today I’m going to show you what I did for my bridesmaid proposal boxes! (The DIY video is also at the end of this post.)

I have been planning my boxes for awhile now (probably since before I was engaged #sorrynotsorry) and I couldn’t decide between a Harry Potter theme or donut theme … so I did both!

I proposed to five ladies:

  • Sister & Maid of Honor: Jenny
  • BFF & Matron of Honor: Saige
  • BFF & Bridesmaid: Lindsay
  • STB Sister-in-law: Elizabeth
  • STB Sister-in-law: Annie

(STB stands for soon-to-be… I just didn’t want to write it out. 🙃)

I decided to do Harry Potter-themed boxes for the first three ladies and donut-themed for the last two. (All boxes and tissue paper are from Target!) I also created all of my cards in Canva instead of buying them online!

Weekend Recap: Our Engagement Party!

And just like that, it’s Monday! Do you have the day off today? It seems like every single person in Chicago does … apart from me. But hey, the train was dead!


Friday was an amazing day and I was in SUCH a great day. I woke up pretty early and got in some work between working from my couch and working from the coffee shop. I can’t wait to do that EVERY DAY! #comeonuniverse

I signed off around noon and headed out to run some errands with Ben. First we stopped at Target, then off to my friend Saige’s place to grab some of her stuff to use for the engagement party. After that, Ben’s brother came in from Indy and we spent the night hanging out with him.


It was finally the day! I woke up pretty early, ran some last minute errands and waited for my friend Lindsay to come in from Madison. Once Ben was done with work, my mom and sister also showed up from Green Bay and we got ready for the party. We left pretty late, but ended up having plenty of time to get ready for the party. I purposely didn’t keep my phone on me, so here’s a bunch of pics from others!

Sunday started out a bit slow (too much tequila) but we headed out for brunch around 10 before Lindsay, my sister and mom all headed back for Wisconsin. Ben and I were SO dead, so we spent the rest of the day watching documentaries and trying to do a tiny bit of cleaning.

And that’s my weekend! How was your weekend? What are your goals for the week?

3 Ways to Pick the Perfect Wedding Venue

Welcome back to another Wedding Wednesday! 🎉  Ben and I finally bit the bullet and signed the venue contract + set our date for June 9, 2019!

3 Ways to Pick the Perfect Wedding Venue
We’re so excited, but it didn’t come without work. Since I absolutely love wedding planning, here are the steps I think you should take to choose your perfect venue. I’d love to hear any you’d add to the list in the comments below!

Style: What do you want the venue to look like?

(Or DON’T want it to look like, in my case.)

When I started out, I wasn’t exactly sure what “look” I wanted but I did know one thing – what I didn’t want. A ballroom. Nope. I’m just not interested in having my wedding at a hotel. (PLEASE DO NOT TAKE OFFENSE IF YOU USED A BALLROOM – IT WAS JUST NOT MY TASTE.)  After planning events for a few years, I just wasn’t feelin’ it that look.

Once I figured out what I didn’t want, that narrowed my search quite a bit. I started looking more into the rustic yet feminine route and that’s where I found my dream venue. I reached out to SO many beautiful modern and rustic venues, but based on budget (which we’re talking about next!) we were really stuck on one. Once we saw it in person, I got goosebumps and it was all over for me.

So, basically start narrowing things down. Meet with your fiancee and talk about the look and feel you’re going for. Is there anything you absolutely DO NOT like? Is there anything you love? Make a list and start emailing venues to get their price sheets and galleries! Also, is amazing for reviews, which I highly recommend reading.

TIP: Look into non-traditional venues like Air BnB’s on the lake or in a forest, restaurants, parks, barns (although those are becoming trendy), destination locations, etc.

Budget: How much are you willing to spend?

This is probably the most important question to ask yourself. Ben and I are doing a “budget wedding” according to industry standards (aka we’re not spending a college education on one day) so this was important. While I didn’t have a set price I wanted to spend on the venue, we DID have a set overall price that we’d want to stay within. So we worked backwards from that. The more we spend on a venue, the less we have for everything else. The venue will probably be one of the most expensive parts of your day (or THE most expensive part) so it’s important to pay attention to that. If your budget is $15K and your venue is $9K, that’s going to make it pretty much impossible unless you cut a LOT of other areas or you have some extra things included in that price (see the next step for that!)

Once Ben and I decided on our budget, we split everything out into a budget tracker in my wedding spreadsheet (hells yes I have a wedding spreadsheet) and figured out where we were going to allocate our money for each part. If you’d like a copy of my budget, send me an email or leave a comment below and I’ll send a blank copy over for you to get started!

TIP: Have a Sunday wedding (or M-Th). Fridays are becoming just as expensive as a Saturday wedding now, so why not a Sunday? We’re saving almost $4K just by having ours on a Sunday and no one that’s coming is upset about it!

TIP 2: Watch out for food and beverage minimums!! I found a bunch of restaurants in the Chicago city limits that I loved where the venue price was within my budget, but then I was hit with a $15,000 food and beverage minimum. WHAT. That’s almost $20,000 just for the venue and food! No, thanks. Sometimes restaurants can be a cheaper venue, but just watch out for that hidden cost.

Value: What’s included with each venue you like?

This is key 🔑 – maybe your venue is a little higher in price, but the food is included. Or maybe, like me, my venue is a little less but food is NOT included plus we’re required to use their food vendor list. Pay attention to those little intricacies that might be in fine print.

For us, our venue includes a day-of coordinator, gorrrrgggeous wooden tables, and most decor. I’ll only need to bring a few flowers and decorations, which helps me save tons of money on the decor/floral part of my budget. We get the whole venue for the whole day (yes, I’ve been to a venue where they allow people to walk around while you’re getting ready – what?!) + a bridal suite and groomsmen suite (with video games, so Ben’s excited.) The only extra charges we’ll have are for anything we’d like to rent through them (like backdrops or signs) and a $500 security deposit that comes out right before the wedding to CYA.

TIP: Watch out for things that AREN’T allowed. My venue does not allow real candles due to fire hazard and doesn’t allow you to bring your own alcohol into the bridal suite. I’m fine with both of those things (plus, they’re giving us champagne so we’ll still have mimosas!) and will probably rent their candle (they’re flameless) special so I don’t have to worry about it. They’re very strict with people being over-served, which for Ben and me is perfect, but I’ve been to quite a few weddings right after college where alcohol was very important. Just make sure you read every little thing and ask questions before you sign on that dotted line!

I have a bazillion more tips (and TONS of research) so if you’d like to hear anything else, let me know in the comments below! Otherwise, I hope this was helpful to any newbie brides out there or interesting to my married sistas. ❤️

Weekend Recap: Stuck in Arizona!

Happy Monday, friends! I can’t wait to tell you ALL about my time in Arizona for the Bloguette’s Workshop, but I’ll have a post up on Wednesday so keep an eye out. It was (hands down) the best conference I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to my fair share!

But, back to the weekend!


Weekend Recap: Stuck in Arizona!
Unfortunately on Thursday morning I got an email from Southwest saying that my flight back to Chicago for Friday night was canceled due to Snowmaggeden 2018. 😂  I quickly booked another night at the hotel I was at and Ben adjusted my flight (he used his account for his miles.) All seemed well …

The rest of the day was amazing at the conference. Once it was over, I headed over to a Mexican restaurant near my hotel, but the service was HORRIBLE. I ended up having a drink and chips and salsa (which were also bad – and that takes a lot for me to say) before heading over to a sushi restaurant that I had been to before. Might as well go back where the food is amazing, right?

Weekend Recap: Stuck in Arizona!After dinner, I honestly sat around in my hotel room, watched HGTV and tried to unwind.


Weekend Recap: Stuck in Arizona!I woke up pretty early to the sound of construction on a Saturday morning, but used the time to get ready and pack everything up. I met my friend Brittany (we worked together at McDonalds in High School – small world!) for brunch and she took me over to the airport. Unfortunately my nerves kicked in at that time + my flight was delayed another hour, so I didn’t end up getting back to Chicago until 8 pm. Thankfully I sat next to the nicest older couple from Michigan so I was feeling pretty good. I’ve never been more excited to see Ben and Cora, though!


Weekend Recap: Stuck in Arizona!
We woke up to Cora barking at 6:30 on Sunday (she’s been having stomach issues again …) so we both got up and hung out with her. We headed out to the Chicago Auto Show with Ben’s fam, then headed back home to grab Cora and head out to the ‘burbs! Ben’s mom is GRACIOUSLY helping us with the set-up on Saturday for our engagement party (!!!) so we chatted about everything that was needed for our taco bar. I also asked his sister to be in my wedding BUT you’ll have to wait for that post – I’ll be showing y’all how I made two different kinds of bridesmaid proposal boxes based on my friends’ interests! Once they’ve all received theirs, I’ll have a blog up – hopefully by next week!

We ended up not leaving the ‘burbs until after 9 pm last night, so we got home and passed out. Quick weekend for me, but can’t wait to see my loves this coming weekend for my engagement party!

How was your weekend?

Do you like reading out my weekends? I’m making some changes to the blog and I don’t want to continue writing these unless y’all enjoy reading about my random life! No hard feelings either way 🙂 

5 Things That Happen When You Get Engaged

Ben and I have been engaged for almost two months at this point and I feel like a LOT has happened. I love being engaged, but some of it can be quite stressful! Here are the 5 things that happen when you get engaged (at least according to my own experience!) The funny thing is … these could entirely ONLY be happening to me soooooo … 😂

Everyone will ask what your date is

This one isn’t a negative OR positive question, but it’s definitely the most asked. Ben and I still haven’t chosen our date (though we’re about 99% sure, just have to book the venue) and I swear that’s constantly the question we get. For good reason, though! Every single vendor asks the date (obvs), family, friends, friends planning their own weddings, colleagues, blog readers, YouTube comments, Instagram comments, etc. Basically the only one that HASN’T asked is Cora. 🙃

You’ll show EVERYONE your ring and/or EVERYONE will ask to see it

I think this is a positive, but the people around me probably don’t. 😂  I love my ring. Ben and I designed it together (I’m picky and engagement rings are A LOT of moolah so he didn’t want to pick one I wouldn’t love.) Sometimes I just want to look at it in every lighting I see. When we tell people we’re engaged, they always grab for my hand. Basically anyone I’ve seen since December 15th when we got engaged has grabbed my hand before they even acknowledge me, then they usually say “Good job, Ben!” and then “OH HI, JESSIE HOW ARE YOU?” It happens!

All you’ll talk about with your significant other is the wedding

This is actually an interesting one – not necessarily negative, but not always positive. I feel like I tell Ben about wedding stuff all the time. In fact, he even asked me to only bring him stuff once a week because it was getting overwhelming (which I’m not doing very well at, if I’m honest.) A lot of our conversations are now around our wedding and our future in general. I love that Ben and I have always had open conversation but sometimes I miss just being able to talk to him about random stuff without being like, “OH, did you look at that photographer’s proposal yet?”

With that, you will probably disagree about (a lot of) something(s)

This was definitely a negative for us, but it did happen! Ben and I lived in pretty bliss mode where we rarely fought. Yes, we had disagreements, but they were usually small or had to do with the fact that one of us (or both of us) was hungry. I remember clearly getting so hurt by Ben twice in the last two months because 1) we had very differing opinions on how important a photographer is and 2) I felt like he was so wrapped up in the money part and didn’t appreciate what I was doing trying to make everything fit into a very small budget.

This one can be a struggle, but it’s definitely helping us talk through bigger and more difficult issues that come up in a relationship. For the most part, the worst thing we’d disagree about was something so trivial, whereas a wedding really makes you think about the hard things – what you want for your future together and MONEY (<— hard one for both Ben and me.) And we just started this process! It has also made us really think about things like …

  1. How we both have issues with money and need to work on them separately and together.
  2. We need to make sure we’re showing each other appreciation in all things.
  3. Where we want to live.
  4. How many kids we want and when.
  5. How we want to work (I don’t want to be a full-time working parent away from home and he doesn’t either.)

It definitely makes you start to think about all kinds of things you may not have been thinking about just in “relationship” status!

People will say “Can’t wait to come!”

This was a negative for me… I couldn’t believe the amount of people who said, “OHMYGOSH Can’t wait to come!!” when I put up our engagement “announcement” on Facebook. Then I read Jasmine’s post (she’s also a newlywed!) and saw that it’s not just me! I had cousins that I haven’t spoken to in YEARS say, “Can’t wait to come!” or random friends try to pop back into my life. Ben and I are having a very small wedding and I have a very huge family. We will not be inviting any family besides immediate or those that have been integral in our relationship. I couldn’t believe the amount of people that just expected they’d be invited when I’m not sure I’d even recognize them on the street! If you get anything from this post, just please promise me you’ll never say that to a bride or groom to be. Thankfully I’m pretty set in my decisions, but I still don’t want to hurt any feelings and those comments give me hives. 😂

Can’t wait to take y’all on this bumpy, but amazingly fun journey for the next year+! I hope you’re enjoying it so far. Let me know in the comments a few other things you’d add to this list! 

Wedding Wednesday Vol. 2: Little Bits & Bobs

I love using the phrase “bits and bobs” – I blame it on watching a LOT of British YouTubers. 😍

Wedding Wednesday
If you saw last week’s post, I kind of filled you in on most of the stuff we finished. I didn’t get as much done this week because we’re kind of on a stand still until we get some $$ info figured out.

What we’ve done so far:

  • Bought a few inexpensive chalkboards and a pen holder from the Target dollar section + a plastic container to hold it all (I’m assuming I’ll be picking up a few “bits and bobs” here in the next year and a half.
  • Paid for engagement party room rental ($100)
  • We made the decision that we will probably not be getting a wedding planner. 😩  While I’d love one, I have a background in events and I don’t really *need* it. And, quite honestly, The $2000+ on a wedding planner could be used on my dress or multiple other things. I may still hire one of my previous interns to do day of planning for me, just to take some of the stress off. If I had less experience, I would hands down hire one, but since one of my dreams is to plan weddings, why not start with my own?!
  • Gotten TONS of recommendations and ideas from friends who are willing to borrow me things and/or gave ideas on ways we could cut costs
  • Had a crying fit because I felt like Ben didn’t want to get married because he’s freaked out about $$ (lollll #happyengagement we’re good now)
  • Bought “things” off Etsy for my bridesmaid boxes. Two girls’ boxes are themed one way, the other three are themed another based on their interests. I CAN’T WAIT TO DO THESE!!
  • Started adding $$ to savings account for wedding budget
  • Applied for credit card that we’ll pay for wedding expenses with (DON’T WORRY – we’ll be paying it off every month. Just want everything to be in one place.) It’s a pretty specialty card, though, so I still don’t know if I was accepted. 🤔
  • Looked through Costco to see what we could purchase there for the engagement party
  • Tried to figure out wedding colors. I’m leaning toward gold, green, white and maybe a pop of purple. Still haven’t decided if the bridesmaid dresses will be purple, though. That’s a lot of color for me!
  • Asked our AMAZING friend Frank to get ordained and be our officiant!
  • Made Facebook event + invited everyone to our engagement party

What’s next on our agenda:

  • Get coffee with Amanda + check out the engagement party room this Saturday (we’re using the party room in her high rise – thanks, friend!)
  • Book the ceremony/reception venue + set the date
  • Find an engagement party dress
  • Find engagement party decoration (will know more after Saturday coffee with Amanda) though I did get a “Yay” ballon 🤗
  • Figure out food for engagement party

Volume 1: Just Getting Started

Anything you’d like to see more of during this journey? Do you like knowing the money side of things? Once I start getting into the thick of things, I’m hoping to do videos + more photos. We’re just in beginning stages. 

Wedding Wednesday Vol. 1: Just getting started

Today starts the first of many (AKA 1.5 years worth) of wedding update blogs. There might not be one every single week, and then other weeks there might be a lot. I thought I was getting WAY ahead of myself for already planning stuff, but once I noticed the venue we love is already booked up for Saturdays in May and June in 2019, I’m glad I got started!

Wedding Wednesday Vol. 1: Just getting started
What we’ve done so far:

  • Stared at my ring a lot
  • Went to a few venues and have *pretty much* decided on this one
  • Decided we’re going to get married on a Sunday to save costs
  • Interviewed a BAZILLION wedding planners and decided that’s my next career venture
  • Interviewed a couple of photographers, but I’m pretty set on Ariele (who reached out via Instagram!)
  • Started saving for the wedding
  • Reached out to the required caterers and beverage providers for the venue we love
  • Set up an account on The Knot
  • Got an Engagement Starter Kit of sorts from my sister
  • Decided on our bridesmaids and groomsmen (to be honest, we did this before we were engaged)
  • Started buying stuff for my bridesmaid proposal boxes (plan to see those in mid-late February once I’ve finished and given to my girls!)
  • Booked a space for our engagement party / my belated 30th birthday party for Feb. 17
  • Created a Google sheet with our budget, guest lists (version 1 & 2), vendor research, etc.

What’s next on our agenda:

  • Book the venue + set the date
  • Find an engagement party dress
  • Find engagement party decoration
  • Figured out food for engagement party (okay, basically my focus is the party)
  • Make decision if we will be hiring a wedding planner
  • Continue to work on bridesmaid boxes – shoot to have them done by/before the engagement party

That’s it so far! What else would you like to know/see in these posts moving forward?

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year

Hi friends! Anyone else feel like the holidays literally turn them upside down and back around? Seriously, I keep forgetting today is Tuesday and I did NOT want to go to work today, especially with a -21 windchill. Thankfully I was able to finagle my way into two more days of work from home so I’m sitting on my couch in thermal pj pants and a huge blanket. Best way to come back to work, in my opinion!

Friday, December 29

Friday ended up being an incredibly relaxing day. I was supposed to get lunch with a friend, but she texted me that she was sick so all I had planned was a few phone calls with wedding planners. I ended up having three phone convos (really loved two of the girls!) but Ben and I are going to take a little breather on hiring vendors just yet and focus on the venue. Ben feels a bit rushed by me (oopsie) and wants to sit down and really hammer out our budget and what’s important to us. I think that’s a great idea, plus I do still have a few more wedding planner interviews over the next couple of weeks so at least I’ll have all the info!

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year
Ben got home from work around 1 and I’m pretty sure the rest of the day was spent cuddling with Cora and watching Netflix. We really got into the show Mindhunter (which we finished this weekend!) and I highly recommend it!

Saturday, December 30

I woke up pretty early with Ben on Saturday because I was going to go work on wedding planning stuff plus my blog at a coffee shop while he was at work. I was planning to workout with him and since the temps have been so cold, there was NO way I was going to walk there so I figured I’d hang out at a coffee shop for two hours right by his gym. Unfortunately we woke up to a very goopy-eyed puppy and I had to take her out to the ‘burbs to check on her eye. 2 hours later + $155 appointment/meds/heartguard + $30 in gas, I got home. HA!

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year
I had picked up Qdoba while out in the ‘burbs, so I ate that while waiting for Ben to come home. I started cooking a little bit and all of a sudden got SUPER nauseous and felt really sick so I ended up laying on the couch for the rest of the afternoon.

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New YearBen’s friends came over later that night (thankfully I was feeling better at that point) and we hung out with them and their 4-month old baby for a few hours.

Sunday, December 31

The day started out pretty slow before I got into cooking a few things for the rest of the week. Ben’s cousin came over so they could talk “business” (they’re starting a donut shop!) while I cooked up some stuff. We ran off to Target quick to pick up a few things ..


We hung around the rest of the day until we headed out to Saige’s house (my friend) for a Murder Mystery party!

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New YearIt was SO much fun, but she ended up making this yummy juicy drink that went down very easily and … well, like 6 glasses later, I was way more intoxicated than I had initially planned (since I had initially planned to only have one drink LOL).

Monday, January 1

Unfortunately most of Monday morning was nursing myself back to health. I have always gotten hungover quite easily, but especially when I rarely drink, I definitely can’t handle that much alcohol anymore! It ended up being okay, though, after I ordered myself my FAVORITE brunch item at Whisk to be delivered (AKA $40 since I had to meet a $20 minimum, so Ben got it too PLUS delivery, tip, tax, idiot…)

Weekend Recap: A Netflix & Chill Type of New Year
We spent the rest of the day watching Mindhunter and then starting Ozark. It was SO nice for the both of us to just have a fully chilled out day. It’s very rare and after traveling all over for Christmas, it was nice to completely turn off at just hang out watching some tv. We made a quick spaghetti dinner and then continued watching Ozark before getting ready for our week back at work.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun for NYE?

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies

Annnnnnd just like that, it’s Monday! Y’all have been hearing a lot from me lately, so I’ll *try* to keep this as short as possible. Speaking of that, if you’re interested in learning the story of how Ben and I met from BOTH of our perspectives, they’re linked below. 🙂

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

And yes, I say both of our perspectives because Ben also wrote his POV throughout the whole thing!

On Friday after work, Ben and I headed over to Mindy’s Hot Chocolate for dinner and dessert to celebrate our anniversary a day early. Super cute place – would totally go back there for hot chocolate (I had the Mexican Hot Chocolate with cayenne pepper OMG) but the food was just okay.

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies Weekend Recap: Weddings & PuppiesWe spent the rest of the night watching a Rom-Com and falling asleep on the couch #typical

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies
On Saturday (technically our one-year anniversary), Ben went in to train two clients while I got ready for a wedding. We picked up my friend Perry (to dogsit) and headed over to my friend Saige’s place. Saige, her husband Joel, Ben & I were all driving together up to Waukesha, Wis. for the wedding! I don’t have many pictures because I was being “in the moment” but it was a beautiful wedding full of love. Plus, I got to spend the day with my best friend!

Weekend Recap: Weddings & PuppiesThen Sunday rolled around. I slept in until about 9 before getting up and getting some cleaning/laundry done around the place. I took a quick trip to Target ($65 later – SERIOUSLY) and then came back just in time for Ben’s little sister and her boyfriend to show up. They hung out with us all day watching football and the boys played some video games. Cora literally slept ALL day because she was so pooped from running around with Nushi (Saige’s dog) all day on Saturday. Kinda nice. 😉

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies
We were supposed to head out to the ‘burbs for a hockey game, but when we looked at the traffic, it would’ve taken us an hour + to get out there, so Ben called it off and ended up working a bit. We listened to an episode of The Black Tapes podcast which I HIGHLY recommend, but I don’t think I can listen to it anymore. I’m already a chicken as it is + I hate the dark, so the last two nights we’ve listened to this and it’s taken me almost an hour to fall asleep.

Weekend Recap: Weddings & Puppies
And now it’s Monday! It’s supposed to be “warm-ish” today, but I’ll be inside all day. I’m planning to work from home the next two days, so that will be nice. Excited for a short week!

How was your weekend?
