Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: A glamorous, romantic and fun celebration with indulgent food, lots of Greek dancing, and feeling the love from all our closest friends and family.

Favorite part of planning: EVERYTHING- honestly, I loved researching florists, I loved choosing favors, picking the dress- I can’t wait to design our invitations…I could go on and on…

Most-anticipated part of the day: There are so many…but if I must choose one- probably the moment we are in the car alone together after the ceremony…having our first private moment together as man and wife.

  • Wedding: January 2012

Town/State of Wedding Location: New York, New York

Wedding Date: January 14, 2012

Colors/Theme: bottle green / royal purple

Venue: Ukrainian Catholic Church / uptown social club

Describe the wedding in one sentence or less: old New York

Favorite part of planning: the memories made working on things with those involved (my mother, father, fiance, best friends)

Most-anticipated part of the day: the first dance (after that it will be smooth sailing!)

Meaning of your screen name: I talk… a lot… especially about weddings!

Something we should know about your “other half”: he’s English, and we’re going through the whole immigration process (so here’s to hoping all goes through for the big day!)

and I want to add a question! Since I feel pretty far behind (venue/church are not confirmed yet, though should be in the next week or so; not stationery is finalized), what has been the most challenging part of the planning thus far?

I would say, guest list—deciding who to invited and estimating how many will attend. Never ending!!!

And if anyone is interested, I’m blogging at http://www.kseniaandbruno.com, basically because I found so many of the blogs I first looked at so influential. Hope my planning can help others out there, too!
