Operation Wedding has begun. Although our date is still two plus years away, the planning and organizing of it all, needs to start. And this means first and foremost, coming up with a date so we can lock down a location and get a deposit made. I refuse to wait until the last three months to do it all. Absolutely refuse. And I’m pretty sure my Maid of Honor will kill me if I wait too long to do certain things. She’s already chomping at the bit to get things booked.
I’ve searched through website after website for locations. I’ve gone all the way from Santa Barbara to Temecula. Lots and lots of choices. Do you have a suggestion on location?
I have my colors picked out. SS doesn’t care anything about what color dresses my bridesmaids should wear, and certainly doesn’t care what color flowers are going to be on the tables, so, colors are all me. Thankfully, it was an easy choice and that decision is made. ✔ that off my To Do List.
Maid of Honor/Bridesmaids:
My MoH choice was simple. There was no question that I wanted my sister to stand next to me and keep me sane through this whole process. She’s already taken the reins on most things.
Bridesmaids will be a tougher decision. The wedding party is an important part of this. If I’m going to have wedding photos hanging around my house, I want it full of people that I love. Full of people that are amazingly awesome and want to be a part of our special day. People that I’ll want to look at all year long, for the rest of my life. So far, I only have one bridesmaid chosen. A friend that goes all the way back to 4th grade. She will also help keep me sane. I’d like to come up with at least one more, so fingers crossed.
We’ve talked about where we want to go, but nothing has been decided. I know where SS wants to go, and while I think it’s a super safe and good choice, I’m thinking I’d like to look at some additional options. If you have any suggestions, let me know. I’m open to options.
There is so much still to decide, but don’t worry, I’ll take you along with me the entire time. Can’t wait! So excited!
