    OK I/we have put the deposit down on our wedding I am excited. Still havent fully told people because he want me to have a ring . I am dealing with that. But here comes the straw that broke the camels back.
    The WC emails me and says tell me what you two envision for your wedding day. UHHH what? I have to plan this thing. Ok? what do I want. I HAVE NO FRICKEN CLUE. I cant even decide decisively on the colors. I wanted/wantpurpleand sienna sunset or dark/burnt orange.but do they really go?

    I cant see anything other than standing on the beach with a setting sun saying I DO to the man of my dreams.

    OK WHERE DO I BEGIN?
    WHAT DO I TELL THE WC?
    WHAT ARE MY COLORS?

    Catherine, tell her just that. Has she sent you pics of other ceremonies?
    Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

      Just have seen some pictures on her website. Nothing else. I told her what I liked but it seems like it is not coming together with out a color. Do I really need to choose a color. I like the colors of the tropic. Cant I just do black and white me in white girls in sand and tropical flowers and let nature do the rest?

        Oh Catherine, you are so cute! First of all, are these things you need to deal with RIGHT NOW? Colors & flowers & stuff?

        When she asks you what you envision for your wedding day, maybe you should just tell her what you said above - "standing on the beach with a setting sun saying I DO to the man of my dreams." That's a great start!

        For the most part, things like flowers can be choosen much later than 10 months out from your wedding date.

        Breathe! Be calm. One step at a time. You've got your venue, your dress & a photog, right? Those are the big deal things in my opinion.

          Dress ordered should be here 30-60 days. Online got early just in case.
          Venue done Megan's Bay
          Photog comes with the package.

          Ok I am feeling better. Maybe i should tell her to email you guys and you can filter it to me. I damn near pass out when she asks me a question.

          Am I going to be a blubbering bride. OMG I need a drink

            You will be fine. I remember having a freak out when we decided to get married. With in days of announcing our engagement I had people asking me "so, what are you colors?" WHAT? Are you friggin high? I just got engaged!!

            I think there is this invisible bridal pressure that hits all of us when we realize we are planning a wedding, and we've never done that before!

              that is the thing up until i actually had to tell people what I wanted my wedding was planned. I had it planned 1000 different ways. Now I have not a clue.

                I know! I wasn't going to say it though because I didn't want to stress you out!! You will be fine. Go fill up that wine glass girl, lets have a drink

                  Catherine, I agree with Christa, just tell the WC exactly what you told us - you envision your wedding as you and your man on the beach saying "I do". There is no need (in my opinion) to have to know your colors and everything else right now. Relax, it will all come together, and all of us here will help you every step along the way
