I've known for a long time that when/if I were to ever get married I would want blue as one of my main wedding colors. I feel blue represents me in so many different ways, and it is my favorite color. Blue will definitely be seen in 23 days! It's not matchy matchy and different shades will be seen throughout the day. Blue is also the one common element that is seen throughout all wedding aspects. From the "Save the Dates" to some of the small details, and even a few surprises!
And of course the shoes! I have blue shoes. And I think they rock! I'm pretty sure I'm more in love with my shoes than my dress. These shoes are of course, for later in the evening...for dancing. My "formal" shoes are just as cute. And ridiculously comfortable as well, but these are a good back up! My something blue is officially taken care of!
In other wedding news and the ride of emotions that has come with planning this wedding today is a good day. I feel accomplished even though I have a long list of things to get through. We had our final walk thru at the Chateaux last night. Which added to my list, but the deadline for most things is 9/21, and although that seems like it might be far away (I wish) that's next Friday, and I'm definitely happy knowing that I'll have two weeks to clear my "wedding brain" to get recharged and relaxed for the official wedding day! It's difficult focusing on the end result: that at the end of the day I'll be married to my love, and that is what truly matters. Of course that is the whole point to the celebration and bringing all of these people together, and it's stressful because in the interim of all that people are tugging at you and your emotions in every which direction. You want to please everybody, and other people are easy distractions to what should be my main priority: myself, my future husband, and our love filled union. Things get scattered, and it's just hard. So I'm relieved in knowing that after 9/21 the headcount/the seating arrangements will be set in stone and I can go back and focus on the love around me and being excited for the day rather than getting stressed about the day.
The wedding program is just about finalized. Next will be making a super long list for the escort cards.
We have an order of how things will go once cocktail hour is over and people enter the reception space.
I need to go to the liquor store and finalize the alcohol for the party.
Lastly, I need to put together our Welcome Bags for out of town guests. I have ordered the actual bags, just need to get them, and fill them!
Holy cow I'm getting married!!! Sometimes it still seems surreal!
