Thanks for all the wedding feedback!
I’m glad you guys liked my venue-I didn’t mention that in addition to being pretty, and in the park, it has two more bonuses: it’s seriously a fifth of the price of some other venues, AND it’s right next to a hotel (where we’ve booked a block of rooms) so that our guests can *ahem* reallllly enjoy themselves.
I had decided after we booked a venue that I would ignore all the other planning until after Christmas. Which means now it’s go time!
At the bridal show I found a place that has a great deal on veils, so once I have a dress, I’m going to them (we’re talking, cheaper than you could make a veil sorta prices)
There are like two big catering places in my hometown… So really I may just flip a coin there. We’ve got some vegetarians, so I wanna make sure that we have meals they can enjoy. That’s as much thought as I’ve given to food.
Cake on the other hand, I’m torn… Cupcakes make me happy. I got proposed to with cupcakes. There are few things that make me happier than a mini cupcake with cream cheese frosting. But there are some prettttty cakes. Cakes Be We had some pretty ones-I love the scroll-y designs
Maybe instead of dinner? I’d rather plan cake.
The biggest thing I’m worried about is the dress. I want a dress that isn’t sleeveless (those are not so cute on me… and I’m kinda, you know, lacking large enough assets to hold one up well too). And I really like lace overlays. Turns out those requirements eliminate like 98% of dresses. This one is kinda what I’d like
It’s from David’s Bridal. I’m worried if I try it on I’ll hate it and be sad.
We have no colors yet. And it’s kinda my fault. See, my dad wore a suit, not a tux, at his wedding. And I told my fiance that. Which made him realize he could get a new suit for our wedding. It makes him happy, so I’m down for it. But then he and his groomsmen decided they want some sweet J Crew ties
But they’ve not had “good colors” lately I’ve been told, so now they’re emailing each other some Brooks Brothers ones.
No joke, they email each other pictures of ties.
When they manage to pick a tie we’ll have some colors (I’m doing bridesmaids in black, flower girls in white, so that part was easssssy).
And our first dance is going to be to this
Married folks-what was your first dance? And non married people, do you have one picked out? We had a long long joke about this being our first dance
And now that I’ve said that Baby Brother is going to play this song at my wedding.
