Hello! You may have heard me mention it before, but my fiance and I are getting married in September.
We were officially engaged March 19th, 2010, after Matt asked my father's permission. It was cute, old-fashioned, and maybe a little awkward, but we were all very excited. We wanted to get married that summer, but we were still in the midst of our last term(s) in college, so it made sense for us to push the date back another year.
Although we are both so ready, and, I'll admit, a little impatient, we don't regret our decision to wait. We're running this operation on a tight budget, which means that most of our decorations, centerpieces, food, stationary, etc., will be homemade, handmade, and thrifted. Honestly, a small, intimate wedding with just our closest friends and family is perfect. Shoes: optional.
So now that the holidays are over, I'm going into full-on wedding mode, and I'd really like to share some of the process with you, be it inspiration, findings, or makings. To start, I'll show you our wedding colors:
Both Matt and I are usually drawn to earth-tones, but because we are having an outdoor wedding, we decided to go for colors that would stand out. My vision is mostly creams, with pops of the other three colors.
It looks pretty in my head.
Anyway, I'll be back next Wednesday for more wedding talk. There's so much to share. I'm overwhelmed! I'd love to hear what you think, or any ideas you may have.
