Obviously it’s been a while since last wedding Wednesday, yet, unsurprisingly, I don’t think much has actually happened since those last posts. (oops?)
I did do the following though:
- Went to TWO dress appointments (still didn’t find a dress though)
- Sketched out save the dates more intensely
- Pestered all involved parties about getting together respective guest lists
- Fretted over the fact that weddings are so much work and maybe I should just hire a wedding planner so I can sleep easier at night. Wheeze
I at least think I know what I want the vibe of the wedding/reception to be: Kinda rustic forest themed (deep rich fall colors, trees, wood accents, the works)
I know we don’t want a cake, we want a macaron tower.
I know the wedding colors that I want.
I know the dress shape/color that I want, but I don’t know quite what dress I actually want though. I’ve been suggested a white tux, and the idea is tempting…but Alex doesn’t like that. (Boo!) Maybe I’ll talk more about the dress mess later in a more in-depth post, it’d be good to get all those thoughts out!
I know the venue, which is obviously, probably the most important part.
So I feel like I’m doing pretty well with the whole planning thing. Weddings are a lot of work, and even more work when the wedding you are planning is 1,400 miles away. It’s less than a year away now, so I have to get it into overdrive!
