Update on the planning process

So the planning seems to have come to a standstill for now.  I'm waiting til I can make it to the Bridal Bazaar next weekend (Yay Alli for getting the tickets!!  Thanks Lady!).  Hopefully I can find a florist, bakery and officiant I like there.  Rebecca (a friend of mine who works in the planning business) is sending me a list of her top DJs, definitely appreciate that.  She's run about a million events!  Also, I got a great idea for a cake from Kristina.  I might write to Cake Challenge and see if they pick up the idea.  Lol, it would be awesome!

We got our engagement photos back, they look awesome.  I love the candids, Mitchell loves the posed shots.  So for the wedding we've decided to make a shot list of posed and candid shots we have to get.  Plus I plan to have Arielle stand near us telling us to take off our sunglasses, tilt our chins up and stand up straight.  It's going to be awesome!

It's all in my head

For the last two weeks I have been seriously stressed our about wedding colors and themes and stupid detail stuff.  I think this all hit because its getting to be the time where we need to start purchasing things; bridesmaid dresses, ordering flowers, invites, save the dates, etc....but to do this you need to know what the wedding is going to look like (at least in your mind).  I do know what I want it to look like, kind of.

The hard part is I knew exactly what I wanted, for a fall wedding.  I never really considered anything else.  I had the fall option but we decided spring was better, less of a wait, we get an anniversary that's not right next to both of our birthdays, and nice weather.  However, this means all the visions I had of pumpkins and hay bales and an outdoor rustic fall wedding don't really apply.  So I've had to really sit down and think about what I want, all the while avoiding the pressure of making sure its "me" and unique and not the same old same old, which I don't want.  I want this to be a reflection of who Mitchell and I are, what we like, and still be elegant and tasteful (aka no beer pong or Disney paraphernalia everywhere).

So I believe that I have settled on colors, cross your fingers I don't change my mind again because Mitchell may strangle me.
