- Wedding: July 2011
Hello Bees! This is my first post and I am so excited to have joined the hive!
I have a delima – I am stuck between two weddings! Let me be specific…I am stuck between two dresses, which bring feelings of two totally different style weddings.
The first dress is Watters – Austin. Beautiful. Flowly. Light. Slight more casual.
This dress brings about feelings of a rustic-chic wedding. One with burlap, lanterns, moonshine jugs as vases, and a general laid back easy, breezy feel. I picture this with a lovely kakhi suit, with a black tie – the girls will be in short black dresses.
The second is Maggie Sottero – Christin. Also beautiful. More formal. Flattering in every way.
This dress makes me think of a grey or black suit – with the girls still in short black dresses. This wedding will be more black and white, with pink touches. Still not stuffy or over formal (that is not our style), but more of your “typical” wedding.
Mr. G and I have been together for 7 1/2 years and I have loved every minute of it! The day he proposed was the best day of my life and I could not have been happier! I still look at my ring and think “wow!” However, we have been engaged for nearly a year now (12-24-09) and I am not so hotsy-totsy as a bride. I am a very slow planner and time is running out (7-9-11). Don’t get my wrong – I am very excited, but a little indecisive. I just don’t which wedding or dress I like better. So I thought, that maybe some outside opinions would help me.
We are getting married in a Catholic Church and will have the traditional ceremony. Our ceremony is outdoors at the World’s Fair Pavilion. I LOVE our venues. And the reception venue will support the more casual country-chic wedding or the slightly more formal version.
Thank you all in advance your helpful tips and advice! I cannot wait to share my wedding details with you and learn about yours!
