I'm thinking of doing white/coral, or white/blush, with a vintage feel. Not sure exactly how i'm going to blend that in. I went dress shopping unexpectedly (i was in sweatpants, no makeup, and had my glasses on) with my mom a few weekends ago "just to look". My original plan was to pay this lady on Etsy to make a replica of the dress I thought I wanted. Well, once I got THE dress on I couldn't take it off and had to buy it. Ohhhh well, going to have to save money somewhere else.
I haven't really figured out any of the other details yet, though I'm trying to decide what I want to do for DIY centerpieces bc there is no way I'm paying >$200 per table. Sent my save the dates out friday!!!!!
How about you, how far into planning are you guys?!
Welcome!! How is planning going? Great to hear from another January bride
Awwww 25 is also my ideal number. I felt so bad doing a destination wedding at first, because I know some can't go, but we might have a little reception in Michigan (where some family and friends are) after we get back. Haha we invited a lot, and a lot we know for sure won't even come, but didn't want them to feel left out. I don't think I know 137 people hahahaha
I am so glad you found the dress you wanted. I just bought my dress on Saturday...eeeepppp I wasn't going to spend much on a gown because I wanted to do Trash the dress but I ended up falling in love with something too and had to get it...I agree with spending money elsewhere I tried on a lot of dresses and soooo knew this is what I had been looking for. Oh my gosh...the centerpieces are redonkulous!! I couldn't even believe it! We sent save the dates out today...oops :/ Are you doing invites?
