maybe even quicker than recently planned because as of last night our date has to be changed AGAIN!!
since there are so few of us, picking a new date should be easy.
although it is summer and it seems like there is always something going on.
we have two dates in mind, just hope one works for everyone.
i have a million thoughts going through my head.
i figured there was no place better than my blog to look for some advice/opinions.
keep in mind our wedding is very casual/non-traditional.
it will be outdoors and we are only having our parents and siblings, the ordained minister and photographer.
do we play the traditional music when i walk down the "isle" (the walkway on the deck)?
our ceremony is going to be short and sweet, maybe 5 minutes.
do i have my dad walk me down the isle?
since we are on a very tight budget.
i am thinking we will go with cupcakes.
these are what i have in mind.
they will be displayed on a fun cupcake stand.
we are getting married on the deck near my parents pool.
i don't know if i should decorate the deck/fence?
if so, with what?!
any ideas for something that can float in the pool that is inexpensive?
i don't think i want floating candles.
i've got faux flower petals to line the isle with.
they can't be touching our heads obviously.
does this sound okay??
we will have 12 chairs similar to the chairs above photo.
i want to tie sashes on them with a flower, shown below.
i am going to take the advice of some sweet blog ladies and make my own bouquet!
there is a local farmer's market that starts in a few weeks, i'll be heading there the first saturday it's around. i'm not exactly sure which type of flowers i'll be using just yet.
i still don't have my dress....
it should be here by the end of this month.
call me crazy but i am not having any alterations done to my dress.
it's not in the budget.
at the store when i tried my dress on it fit great, so please just keep your fingers crossed for me that it fits the same when i get it! :)
since i will only be wearing it for about two to three hours at the most i think everything should be just fine.
my mom said she will figure something out if it's not.
mom's can work magic when needed.
after the ceremony i'm changing into a dress i bought when we were planning to have a reception/party.
i love my little party dress!
picture to come soon!
i just realized i didn't include anything about hair...
i do have an appt with my adorable friend and hair stylist so that's a good thing ;)
probably missed a few other things as well.
what i am planning for before and after.
that will all come in the next wedding post as well!
sorry i'm not sure exactly where i got them all.
