Me too! There are so many ideas that I would love to see in action! And some of the wedding photos I have seen on here are beyond phenominal. I hope our wedding turns out that great πŸ™‚

Oh, me too.  I just want the photos to turn out really “WOW”.  Did you hire your photographer yet?

I definitely want the WOW FACTOR too.

Yeppers. I actually come from a family of photographers. When I was growing up my brother and I were actually some of the kids on the brochures for picture day… yeah seriously. We hated it. At every dance we went to we were hunted out by the photogs because our grandmother wanted a few shots of us “by ourselves-sans date”….I can’t tell you how embarassed we were. πŸ˜‰

But now, my uncle is doing our wedding pics, and I also hired a friend of mine who is fabulously artsy to ge capture the more “non-traditional” photos.

What about you? Did you get the photographer of your dreams?

My mom is an art photographer and her stuff is off the hook awesome.  I can’t wait to see what she does.  My only regret is that she will not be sitting and watch me FINALLY get married, but I will have some awesome pics and for free.  I wish she would take a second shooter to help her, but I know she will do her best to get all the shots that I want.  I send her new photo samples almost daily and have a file of “must have” shots that I have copied from other sites.

Catering – what are you doing with food?

Wow, that’s awesome that your mom can be the one to do that for you!

I’m going with a new caterer in our area. We’re doing something very low key… Buffet style smoked pulled pork, two sides (not sure which yet, there are so many to choose from!!) and also included in it is tossed salad, cornbread, and coleslaw. Plus water and tea… He also includes linens, drinkware and silverware in his per plate price. We’re getting all that for about $13 per person. A steal I think…

What about you guys?

Yay! Fun!

1. When I was in elementary school, I decided I hated bananas because my best friend did. I didn’t eat another banana until I was out of college. And, actually I really like them, although I prefer them green.

2. Until college, I couldn’t drink water without gagging … I have no idea was my problem was.

3. I participated in Nanowrimo this year, and “completed” a 50,000 word novel. Of course, it still needs some MAJOR editing.

4. My favorite word is anachronistic. And yes, I have a favorite word.

5. My dog, Elbow, is named after a Shakespeare character (Measure for Measure). I had to leave him with my parents for 10 months while we are living abroad and it is so hard!

Wow, what a steal.  Def want to come to your wedding, I LOVE pulled pork.  My FH makes it all summer and I never get tired of it.

We are choosing next week at a few tastings.  We are thinking heavy apps and alot of them at the reception will not even start until 7 at the earliest.  But if the dinner rate is less, we may go that way.  Either way, we will be making some apps in advance and having a family member bring them.  My aunt is in alaska and is bringing us salmon and fresh crab plus her special bottled water, so I have to make crab puffs and smoked salmon for the wedding.

We chose 5 different cakes with 2 pies for our “cake”, our families like so many different things I wanted them to all get what they wanted and the FH really doesn’t like cake so I got the pies.  And I got to choose 5 different styles so I got all the ones I wanted on one table, yay, and this local old lady make the best frosting next to my mom’s.  So much better than the bakers we tried and were quoted hundreds more for.

Did you get your cake yet?

@tksjewelry: That sounds awesome too! I want an invite! πŸ™‚

Yep, we got a four tiered wedding cake and a 2/almost 3 tiered groom’s cake. I have pics of them in my gallery if you’re interested πŸ™‚

I LOVE pie. Okay, so I’m seriously crashing.

(sorry it took so long to reply, these Dr.’s think I’m here to actually work or something…)

The FH being off of work for two weeks is cutting into mine, I mean really, he wants to spend time with me instead of sleeping and working!?  Well, at least I got some exercise in with the dancing tonight – that counts as a workout right?

Anything that makes you sore, or move more than 10 feet from any couch/chair/seated position of any kind = exercise in my book.

Did you check out the cakes? πŸ™‚

@hermitcrab: So SORYY we threadjacked…it Just. Kind. Of. Happened. Embarassed 

And btw… for some reason even though I KNOW your avatar is a hermit crab, at first glance I always mistake it for the head of a troll doll with purple hair.

I am totally delirious at this point. Just ignore me.

I told the FH I can’t gain or loose a pound in the next few months or the dress will not fit, and I am not buying another.  I mean, geez, I have three already.
