Crisp Wedding

It's beautiful!!!! *cry*

My beautiful, lovely, enchanting, slightly frilly wedding dress. It will be in all white. I love everything about this photo. I'm copying it completely! I love the wild hair, the subdued jewelry, sexy bust and waist and traditional bottom. LOVE IT!

While I have no real choice in the ring matter, I've made it VERY obvious that I love this ring. I love the setting and the curve of the ring holders.

My favorite flower...that doesn't grow anywhere in the south. *le sigh* It will be very expensive and at first I thought that I would use it everywhere but in the end better sense won. It will only be in the bouquet and maybe MAYBE in the guys' lapels. I'm still not sure.

The tulips wont be as crazy as this. They will be in square, clear vases with only about six or seven blooms. Very simple. I might put white Christmas lights around them, still not sure if that would be too much. I'm thinking it is.

Bridesmaids! I couldn't find what I wanted so I love the cut of the brown dress, the color will be a very light mint green (like the Lily of the Valley leaves) with a wide white sash under the bust. White shoes would be preferable.

The venue, Red Corral Ranch. It's between Houston and Austin and unfortunately they don't do full night parties. SO I'm thinking, have the wedding there, with dinner, the first dance, cake carving etc. and then move to a close by hotel and party till the sun comes up. That way no one will have to drive tipsy and we wont have to worry about moving the party in the middle of the night. Plus, free mint juleps. :) I figure it's a popular drink but not so easy on the stomach that everyone will be drinking it. I'm evil...I know.

Dinner tables will be set with white tablecloth (the chairs are white) and I haven't decided on the table settings.

The wedding itself will be at night. The circular area will be lit with large white paper lanterns in the trees. Once everyone is set and vows begun, the lights will dim. At the wedding vows, it will be mostly dark until the vows themselves are done but by the time the kissing comes around the lights will be up again. (eat your heart out photographer).

The Reception will be casual in that you can change into more comfortable slacks lol. I still want some dress up but you can change to a polo shirt and slacks or a more comfortable dress, as long as no one is wearing jeans and a t shirt. I will be jealous. It will be held at a nearby hotel.

This is only the beginning of the planning lol. I still need to find a cake (I have one in mind but I don't think it will work), invitations, save the dates, party ideas, party favors and Barry still hasn't asked me so that's a minor inconvenience that I will need to work on. :)



  1. Aw im excited to see how everything else develops!! Its fun that you can put more detail into it since its an actual reality for you, rather than the... simple day dream on my part hehe. Love it all!

  2. Is there anything that you can put in the bottom of the flower vases that would light up the flowers from the base inside? That would be really pretty... ?

  3. You can put more detail into yours too lol. Get a scrapbook. :) That's what I did. Also remember, most girls start their planning at birth lol.

  4. AND AND you can put all your stuff in your blog. Notice I've added the Wedding Extravaganza section? That way, I can put up single photos or ideas and then if I want to look at it all together I can just click on that link. :)

  5. I like it!! Hahaha I know I never could visualize anything to plan my wedding when I was little hehe. I love the scrap book idea too though... then I can put different fabrics and other 3D elements in that... hmmmm. I like that you will keep adding to this though too! I will to I think. I have other wedding rings that I didn't post cause I just wanted to wait. Yay for wedding ideas hehe.I want a blog of your landscaping ideas too! With picks of fav flowers and trees and ideas :P

  6. I really like your idea of using fabrics and stuff in the scrapbook. i would have never though of that. yay another project!!! :) I didn't post more on this blog entry because I thought it would be too much.

    And I will totally be putting up pics of my ideas (most of them come from the better homes and gardens website and I will put up pics of it starting to come together.

    So excited!!
