wedding things...

so, i am going to be a little selfish today. and to half organize my thoughts in one place, because we keep writing it down, and then it does us zero good because i.....

a) lose the paper 
b) spill coffee on said paper
c) never remember what my half-assed abbreviations stand for
d) forget to write down the url of whatever it was that i like, and can never find it again

but, on a lighter note, the colors are all fall colors (deep purple, brown, green, pumpkin, gold, etc) and we already have the cake done (we are doing individual bundt cakes instead of one big monstrous cake and everyone who has tried it so far LOVES it), his suit (dark brown), my dress (once i finally decide! either way its gorgeous and ivory: vintagey too!) the venue (my parents backyard is GORGEOUS rustic and beautiful, with a new orleans feel: shutters, window boxes, etc) the music/dj (i love my friends!),  and we are planning our trip to dallas soon to check out caterers and photographers (any help, for those of you who married in dallas would be GREATLY appreciated!) overall, its going to be a gorgeous, low-key (40-50 guests max: our rule is that you have to actually KNOW us: our names, middle names too! birthdays, and how long we have been together), and super rustic with that vintage throwback flair. non-traditional, but very us. bottom line: its going to ROCK! and im FINALLY starting to get all bride-sy and excited!

so, today this lovely blog is going to be a doubly awesome double blog. because, now i can have all my wedding ideas in one place, my mommy dearest can see all my sweet finds, and so everyone can tell me if its a good plan or if it blows. this is all we have planned for the wedding so far, and the super awesome finds to help us make it happen. so...enjoy!

Look into Gil's Elegant Catering. They did our reception, offered us TONS of great deals, throw-ins, and freebies, and were so, so helpful. Plus, it was delicious! I think the food at our wedding got more talk than anything else.

We also used Krauzian Image for our wedding photography. Brian was really nice, affordable, and he gives a portion of profits to the Family Place--a shelter for women and children.
