Wedding Planning

by - January 29, 2012

It's been awhile since my last wedding planning post. A lot has happened since then, not all of it productive or definitive but stuff has happened.

The biggest thing that's happened was buying, or starting the payment plan for, the perfect wedding dress.

Then we set our date and reserved our venue. It's a barn, in case you couldn't tell. We're going to have the ceremony and the reception in the same place, set the tables up on either side of the aisle and use rotating teal and orange tablecloths.

We've looked at flowers.

I want calla lilies for myself, thinking about orange Gerber daisies for my bridesmaids (to match the groomsmen's vests).

This is kinda what we're thinking about for the boutineers.

Chris is going to have a camouflage vest.

One weekend, Chris and I, along with one of my bridesmaids, went on a dress finding trip. That's the style I've decided I want, not in that color of course. The color we're using is called 'Peacock'. I wouldn't mind having this dress in black...

My mom and I went to a bridal expo today and got a lot of cool ideas that would fit in with our general theme. Don't worry - I took pictures.

We may have to integrate hay bales and twine in somehow.
Love the buckets.
 Like the burlap...
 and the lanterns.
Really liked the idea of tying twine around the napkins.

Obviously we still have a bunch of stuff to do, but not so much as before.

Next on the list? Catering, confirming our photographer and paying off everything.

Oh, and don't forget all the fun stuff that's coming up in the way of showers.

7 1/2 months to go!
