Oh thats right! I forgot- I'm getting married!!!! This fall season has been a whirlwind for me.... only two more weddings left in 2009 and then I can take some much needed breaths and actually begin to make some decisions about our wedding. (Tim made me make a pact with him that I'd sit tight until January... it was stressing us both out!)
Since our date isn't until next November, I don't feel rushed or pressured to make any decisions but I have definitely been doing some research. Earlier this month my mom, grandma, sister, and best friend and I all went to SF and tried on some dresses. Such a fun experience!!! But all you brides out there who bought the first dress you tried on- ARE YOU INSANE?!?!??!?!?!?!?!? :) So much went through my mind that day.. (especially when they put that damn veil on my head and my mom started to cry!) but the biggest thing was, "How am I ever going to decide?" Grecian, vintage, ball gown, empire, trumpet.... I love 'em all! I have been doing some brainstorming, number crunching, etc.- going to look at some vintage shops, going to check out some sample sales, and thinking about seriously considering having my dress made.
Have been to so many weddings, seen so many things done so many ways- one thing is for sure... I want this to be our wedding, I don't want a cookie-cutter event. Every time I think about something like, "wedding cake" ... I do this, "So what can I do INSTEAD of a wedding cake?" or what other reading besides "love is patient, love is kind" can I find...? Planning our wedding is a lot harder than I thought it would be but already so so much fun and I can't wait to be a Resudek. :)
Here's the direction my dress research is going..... it's pretty "me," right?
