Drum roll please...I would like to announce that Mike & I have finally decided on a date for our wedding! And it's totally official b/c I've added a ticker to my blog ;-)
The big day will be Saturday, July 11th. I think with an anniversary date like 07/11 neither one of us should ever forget our anniversary!
I hope to take my first dress shopping trip this Saturday with my mom & sister. I'm totally encouraged by the fact that I found two whole dresses on-line that I actually liked. I had started to feel some dismay when I had looked through several magazines & web-sites only to say yuck, yuck, yuck to almost every dress. I'm just not a fan of strapless. or lots of lace. or lots of ruffles. or big full skirts. I want to be able to stand close to the man, for goodness sake!
So, let the preparations begin in earnest. Any of you married (or just especially knowledgeable) folks out there should feel free to pass on any tips for me. Especially if they involve saving money or getting things done quickly & easily ;-) Or any suggestions about the program - songs that can be sung, or readings, or anything. I am kind of shocked at my normally opinionated self - I don't have any idea what I want when it comes to this wedding! Help!
