Or rather, we have a date. Either way it's liftoff for wedding planning. Which is probably less predictable and more stressful than a NASA space flight. But in many (very much different) ways, just as wondrous. We have confirmed our preferred date with our very generous wedding host, and it's set to go off on June 12th, 2010. I have a year and just a handful of days to pull this off. I don't envision a terribly extravagant event, so I have plenty of confidence that it will go over pretty easily. So here marks the beginning of the journey and we're onward to the preliminary guest list.
In the same sense, I think I already have colors and a "theme" picked out. We are believing that we are going to go with light and bright blues and bright limey greens, centered in the theme, "Under The Stars". It should work well for us seeing as we're having the wedding at my to-be-brother-in-law's acreage... outside... in the evening/night (and possibly wee hours of the morning)... Under The Stars. It also gives me a perfect reason to do a balloon ceiling with streamers and hanging stars like in one of my older posts... :) Win-Win for me!
