Wedding Plans: no sense fighting it!

So, I’ve been reluctant to post here about my wedding plans for a few reasons:
  1. This is a healthy living and fitness blog, so I didn’t feel it was appropriate
  2. I thought I might lose your interest if I did

But I’m beginning to realize that it might be strange for a 25-year-old bride-to-be with a blog to NOT write about her wedding plans…at least a little…right?

So, I’ll compromise…

I’ve added a Wedding page to my blog. I’ll still post here, but then I’ll link them there. On that page you’ll find a brief story of the fiancé and I, the plan for our wedding, websites I’m obsessed with, our photographers, and my wedding posts (coming soon!).

So the planning thus far…

Since we are still about 10 months away, there isn’t too much set in stone. We have the date, reception location, and photographers. We are working on the band and should have that finalized in the next week or so. The ceremony location is up in the air (which is making me a little nervous). Printing – I’m designing all of our printed material (save-the-dates, wedding logo, invites, place cards, etc.) so that will be fun!

The question you’re all asking…does she have the dress yet?

Drum roll….

NO! Hahaha

I don’t know why that’s funny, but it is. I’m going dress shopping next month with my mom and maid of honor. Don’t even ask me what I’m looking for, because I have no clue. I look at photos of ball gowns, sheath, trumpet, mermaid…I love them all! I will say this though, I want an understated dress. No glitter, sashes, or tons of poof. (Watch, I’ll end up with the biggest ball gown we can find with tons of beading and sparkle everywhere!) Never say “never”….right?

We’ve been engaged exactly 4 months today (I’m not keeping track, honestly, I just happened to realize that!). These 4 months has FLOWN by so quickly – I know the next 10 will go by even faster!

Last night I looked at my fiancé and said “Hey baby, we’re getting married!” He replied, “Isn’t that awesome!?” Pretty sweet, pretty cool, we're both super excited!

So, that my friends, are my plans thus far. I’m not worried; I plan and manage larger events for a living, so I’m sure everything will fall into place nicely to give us the FUN orange and purple wedding we want!

I’ll leave with you this on this lovely Friday. Our wedding logo, designed by yours truly. (His name is Steven…hence the “S”)
