Its a good thing I love party planning and have this thing for details because there is so much more to weddings than I would have guessed!
A taste of what’s going on –
|Wine, Brown, and Antique Gold: ThePerfectPalette|
colors: deep red with accents in cream, brown, and gold (think the hills of tuscany or something like that 🙂 It took a long time to come up with that. My favorite tool to help along the way was this really neat blog called The Perfect Palette. It has every color combination possible with dream boards to help you picture your big day.
date: august 6th …81 days – but who’s counting?
engagement pictures: I have this amazing roommate Andie who is very talented – I had planned on going professional for our engagements until Andie captured the proposal on camera and I realized I’d rather have her take them. I love pictures so I’m really looking forward to this part 🙂
bridal party: I asked my little sister Madison to be my maid of honor and it was one of my favorite conversations I’ve had with her – she’s great! I’m still finalizing the rest of it- its hard getting married on the east coast when you’ve lived in utah for two years …but I have wonderful best friends from home who are already being so supportive! (thanks catherine jen and liv 🙂
announcements: They’ll go out the middle of June – so before I’m home from school. I finally figured out the r.s.v.p. dilemma and created a wedding website where people can just r.s.v.p. instead of having to mail back cards! Check it out! – Ben and Elisabeth’s Wedding. I still have lots of work to do on it but its coming along. There’s a place you can request music for the reception and it gives us a way to list our registry without including it in the invitations which I didn’t want to do.
registry: Ben and I started registering tonight! First stop: Macy’s 🙂 Its so fun imagining being in our own apartment as we went through and picked out dishes and pans and sheets and towels and everything else!Currently the very top of my list involves finding a place for us to live in the fall because at the moment we’re homeless 🙂
I love weddings and I love my fiance – they’re the best 🙂
