Well hello! I am have been absent from the blog world for awhile. Life is moving at rapid speed and I have hardly anytime to catch my breath. I'm not even that busy making wedding plans. I'm actually pretty relaxed about the whole thing. We did set a date, August 8, 2010. Yes, that means THIS summer. But I'm okay with that. I have my venue set, photographer, still deciding on the catering situation and I am going to look at bridesmaid dresses tomorrow.(Kelly, Rachel & Shannon, I promise to dress you in something fun, chic, sassy, cool and inexpensive) Everything is falling into place. It's strange planning for a wedding. All these big decisions to make for one day. I don't want to cut corners but I think some things are just ridiculously expensive and I don't want to pay full price. Is that bad? Like I'm really content with making my own bridal bouquets. I've read\watched a tutorial and know of friends who made theirs and it looks simple enough. We have also decided to print our own invitations too. T and I really like the ones at Target and decided to give it a whirl. We might even break the rules and use two different looking invites and so who knows what one might find in the mail?
The wedding theme is very Country\Shabby Chic. Mason Jars filled with flowers on all the tables, candle votives in jars, vintage linens on the main tables. Simple. I am having an outdoor wedding with the reception in a barn pavilion. I just want it to be the most fun and relaxed wedding day for me, T and my guests. And at the end of the day as long as T and I are married, nothing else matters.
I love tips, so if any one has any words of advice about the big day feel free to share.
P.S. What I am most excited about is that I am almost caught up on LOST. I am going to watch last nights episode tonight. Seriously, how can it almost be over??? Sunday will be amazing.
