A Life Post - Wedding Stuff!

So..Mark & I finally decided to plan our wedding. After setting a few dates, and then changing our minds over and over, I decided we should just do it! So after talking about it, our wedding date is August 25th, 2012.

I am literally filled with wedding thoughts and ideas all the time. My foodie inspiration has now come second in my life so I figured I would let everyone in on my super life consuming wedding planning.

I know it's so early to think of much at all, being over a year away and all, but we have a little problem. I am going to school in September until the end of June. I know I wont have much time in between writing papers and doing placements to think about wedding colors and what kind of flowers I want, so I am eagerly planning most of this out before I go to school.

Mark and I are pretty mellow and decided on a very small wedding. Less than 25 guests and no wedding party. I know so many people that think I'm absolutely crazy for not having an extravagant party of a wedding, but I think it's up to us to decide how to spend our money and our time with people who love us.

We are having a beach wedding and hopefully an outdoor reception! (Fingers crossed!) So far I know I want a casual but elegant style. Not too much fussy detailing but pretty and simple. Our wedding will hopefully be in the evening, so we can have pictures taken during sunset.

I love Grecian style gowns or tea-length, simple flow-y dresses. I will probably chose elegant flats or flowery sandals as shoes as of now, but the style could change over the next year depending on trends & such.
As for food, (the most important part, after saying the vows, that is!) will be a BBQ style or pot luck with family bringing in favorite dishes. I will also be contributing of course! And red velvet cupcakes as our wedding cake!

I hope everyone enjoys this wedding post, and let me know if you`d like more life posts!

Until next time,
