our announcement (yesterday)

We set a date!

this seems very official and REAL.

and I'm sooooo excited about the planning! It seems like all of the sudden every single one of my friends have become master wedding planners and have the best ideas and suggestions to help on our DIY wedding. (did I mention it was going to be very DIY? yes, indeed.)

But then you have moments, like last Thursday when I was checking out of my hotel. A girl was at the front desk going over a box full of goody bags with probably her mother and sister/friend. I asked her the obvious question and she replied that she was getting married that weekend. I told her I was just starting to plan for this next year.

Her advice:

"I just can't wait to get this over with."

and she laughed and said, "I'm kidding."

Ooooh! Enjoy this time between now and then, it will go quickly! Fall weddings are wonderful, and October weddings are my favorite. Our wedding was on October 6, and we had the beautiful golden afternoon light for our ceremony and sunset for our pictures. I hope you have a great time planning and don't stress out too much, because the best part is, after the're married :)

Follow up comment: And don't listen to people who tell you you can't DIY something! Also ignore people that tell you you "have" to have something. It's your wedding!

Woooo hoooo! Don't stress 1 minute. The planning is just as fun as the actual day if you allow it to be that way! You have enough friends here that are totally willing to help, too...and be crafty. I've already collected some mason jars and will eat some soup this week! ;)

Remember--everything is fun if you JAW (just add wine). Love ya and can't wait!

My best advice is to read It is the best, most supportive, down-to-earth wedding blog out there. My second best advice is to not let anyone question your vision. People will question every decision you make; they'll "get it" in the end.

p.s. October weddings are the best of the best.
