Wedding Update

Today I had a very productive day of wedding details. :-)

I started out at one bridal shop that was very busy, but I was able to look at a few bridesmaid dresses and see what colors were available. Over the last week I was starting to get a little panicky about making sure I found the shade of purple that I wanted. (It's so hard to tell on a computer if the colors are accurate.) Since I have to decide on a color before I can do invitations, flowers, the cake, etc. it was stressing me out a little bit.

I looked to my left and saw a girl holding a dress that was THE absolute perfect purple color. It's a deep purple shade that is more blue than plum and it looks very elegant. The saleslady was sweet enough to give me a small swatch of the fabric so that I can use it for the rest of my planning.

Next I picked up my Mom and we went to the bakery to check them out. They had 3 delicious samples of their flavors for tasting, and had so many beautiful cakes that it was almost overwhelming--but I found one that I really like. Now I just have to take my honey up there so we can make our final decisions on flavor, style, etc. and we can get that ordered.

Next Mom and I went out and grabbed some dinner and walked around the mall to work off the Chevy's we had just eaten. When I took her home she showed me the headpiece that she wore for her wedding 42 yrs ago and offered it to me to wear for my big day. I've never seen anything like it, and at first I wasn't sure if I really liked it, but once I put it on I loved it. I'll have to see once I decide on a dress, but I think it may be perfect.

All in all it was a VERY productive day and I'm feeling much better about the whole wedding planning process. Thanks for stopping by today and listening to me babble.
