We’ve made wedding planning progress, people.
1. We found bridesmaid dresses!!!!
After an unsuccessful attempt at Nordstrom Rack we found our winner at Anthropologie. Too bad I’m keeping the dress a secret until the wedding. Or at least I am right now
Really, Chris Humphreys is more than a wedding photographer. He’s a passionate individual full of love for great photography and good people. He captures the moment like I’ve never seen before. We are honored that he will be capturing our wedding on film.
I don’t even have a venue for the wedding yet, but I already feel down and dirty in the trenches of wedding planning. So I begin my Lessons of Wedding Planning:
Lessons of Wedding Planning
1. Whatever you think it will cost, it will cost more.
2. “Simple” is a theme, not a measure of the cost or work involved.
3. No, the 532 vendors you research can not give you any idea of their pricing via their website. That would make your life easier.
4. Wedding planning is the time you have to make hard and public decisions. Deciding to not have my father walk me down the aisle (and now deciding who will take his place) is a heavy load.
5. Be wary of those who just want it to be “your day.” They usually have the most to say.
6. Host your wedding several states away from everyone you know. That way you know everyone who actually attends cares enough about you to make a trip (or just really really needs a vacation).
7. Want to start a fight? Tell your family you’re having a vegan wedding. Go ahead and tell them there won’t be alcohol*, too!
*We’ll most likely be serving local and organic beers and wines. We’ve got to get people on the dance floor somehow!
Today was a doggie photo shoot at Green Festivals. We’re lucky enough to bring our pups to work with us and finally decided to take on the challenge of photographing it. I figured you dog-lovers may appreciate the results of our attempt I’ll show the finished photo soon!
Feel free to share any worthwhile wedding experiences you’ve had. We’ll call it therapy.
