Weekend Recap: Wedding Prep with Alden

Weekend Recap: Wedding Prep with Alden

I spent the weekend in Northeast Arkansas with my best friend Alden.
She is planning her wedding in March, and I went to spend time with her and help her wedding plan.
I got there late Friday night (boo being 5.5 hours away!) and we did some Internet research.  Wedding music, finding some stuff she needed (colored cardstock, linens, etc.)…and we finally went to bed around midnight.
(Side note!  I LOVE that her bridesmaid/maid of honor gift from me is in her room.  I made this Wicked frame for her!)
Saturday was FULL of wedding running.  We had a great time looking at tons of stuff – her wedding rentals, wedding jewelry, flower girl dresses, and then we hit up Hobby Lobby to craft shop.
We went to some friend’s house for game night Saturday and had a GREAT time playing Hedbandz and eating together.  It’s so fun that Alden’s sister Reed is there too…I just love their whole family.
This is Reed playing Hedbandz. 🙂
When we came back home Saturday evening, we got to crafting.  I showed Alden how to make a memory candle. I made some similar ones for my wedding, and she wanted them for hers.  I think they turned out great!
Sunday, she wasn’t feeling 100%, so we stayed home from church and rested.  We eventually got up, went for lunch, and went to see her new house (which her fiance Mike is already living in) and I LOVE it.
I WISH we lived closer, but I sure do cherish the time we have together.  This girl and I have been through a lot and have a lot of memories together.  I am so thankful for her.
I can’t wait to celebrate her wedding next month for her Bachelorette weekend and in March for her wedding!

How was your weekend?



  1. You two look so sweet together! Good to see you value your friendships… Hope you have a wonderful time in this process. (I’m just taking the day to check in with people I don’t get to catch up with as often as I’d like!)

  2. This sounds like a fun weekend with a good friend! So glad you were able to catch up and spend some time together!
