I've been sorta mum about the specifics of the wedding. I only share event details with my bridesmaids, Vin and a couple members of our families. I haven't blogged about it, and I don't post the ubiquitous countdowns on Facebook. I never changed my relationship status on there either. I do this mostly to prevent hurt feelings as not everyone in my FB feed is on my guest list. (This party is in a backyard, after all). I'm also quiet because I would like for most of the events of the day to be a surprise to our guests. Plus, I realize that a lot of people, besides my mom and Vin's, probably aren't waiting on the edge of their seats for this information.
Anyway, the wedding is happening this year in the not-so-distant future, and I must say, I'm pretty good at this planning stuff. I am committed, I am crafty and I am decisive.
Exhibit A: The dress
I briefly toyed with the notion of making a bold statement at the wedding.
Exhibit B: The Color Scheme
I saw this picture of a confetti garland and my mind was immediately set for the color palette. Hot coral, peach, ivory, tan, silver and gold. And maybe a dash of lavender for good measure. The theme of the day will be "backyard rustic-boho glam" which is something I totally made up right now. Let's hope no one points and laughs.
Exhibit C: The venue
I've known I wanted to get married in my dad's yard since the day he moved in. The ceremony and cocktail hour will be there, and the reception will be under a big white tent on the next door neighbor's property. There will be longhorns and bales of hay in the background of our pictures, which makes me so happy I could squeal.
Exhibit D: The groom
Easiest wedding decision ever.
