Tis a battle royale....

 zig zag runner w/yellow napkin

 Paisley runner w/ gingham napkin

Here is the mom likes the paisley....and I like the zig zag. My opinion is that the zig zag option is like indie rock music and lemonade...I heart it a lot, but mom is pressing the paisley. MY DAY MY WAY!!!!!!!!!!

My Brain Hurts...

Who said that planning a wedding was fun...not I! ARGH, but I figured I would post what my flowers will be sitting in on each table.........yeaup....tin cans. I love this idea...I meet with Dave from Dee's Florist tomorrow afternoon and Julie is taggin' along. We are really going to be billy ball pushers. SO MUCH TO DO!!! Thank goodness this quarter of classes will be finished up at the end of next week...then I can focus on getting stuff done...I know my mom will be happy to have my full attention...right now she only has about 10%.

What is a billy ball?

The craspedia billy button are like little drops of sunshine and unicorn smiles. I am inviting you to be a part of my boho state park wedding...please come and bring your buddies lavender, chamomile, dill, wheat grass, lambs ear, maybe your bud hydrangea and mint...I promise that you'll love the tin cans and mason jars you'll be sitting in. P.S. you are super fantastic...and so much better than a monkey ball!

I heart yee vintage...

 Okay...let us use our imaginations...vintage white wing-tipped tux shirt found at "Dreamland Vintage" in Baltimore (with sleeves rolled up and tea dyed) partnered with a pair of vintage brown wool slacks and a pair of suspenders that button into the inside of the slacks...with flip flops of course!

A big fat thank you goes out to Jeannie Dalmas for finding these treasures for Jack. I am so in love and you really hit the nail on the head with what I was thinking about. Now all that is left to find is a pair of comfy flip flops, suspenders, and a tailor to fit those pants to my hunnys buns.

I've always loved strawberry shortcake...

Oh the wedding cake...a traditional piece of the traditional wedding. My opinion...I could have done without it because I know that if Jack and I cut the cake...somehow cake will end up in my nose!

What the heck is the point of getting your makeup and hair done, purchasing an expensive dress (that most only wear once), then having cake shoved in your face by your husband? This is not a good start to the marriage! Jack needs to understand that if he shoves this wedding cake in my face I will take my lady gloves off and throw down like Charlie Brown.

Now to the ladies that provoke the cake in the face by making the first move....what are you you want to wake up tomorrow morning with a crazy break out because of that royal icing? It just does not make any sense to me.

On to the wedding cake (that will not be smooshed in my face)...our buddy Danielle will be making it for us. It will be a giant take on a strawberry shortcake...below are some photos we liked. Opinions please...

"I Do....want Aunt Donna to marry us"

It was important to Jack and I from the start to find a close friend or family member to marry us. We wanted an intimate ceremony that was officiated by someone who loved us, and who has known us through our ups and downs.

I had gone out with Jacks Aunt Donna a few weeks back and had brought up the fact that I was searching for someone to officiate the wedding. She quickly said that she would go get ordained so that she could do it. I received an email from her this week saying that she was officially ordained....WOO HOO! So now all we need to do is figure out the ceremony.

Got Beef???

So after months of back and forth about my menu I finally decided that a caterer was going to be the easiest for my guests and myself. I had originally wanted to serve BBQ/pit beef, then decided against it because I wanted to save money. So I thought about doing deli trays and homemade sides....lots of work! After sitting down and talking to my buddies Melissa and Julie, I decided that the caterer was the best route to go. It may be more then what I originally wanted to spend, but because I've saved so much money so far I can't say no to the convenience that caterer will bring to my special day. So the menu is as follows from "Beefalo Bob's": pit beef, ham, turkey, and peppered turkey, shredded BBQ beef, BBQ chicken, mac 'n' cheese, baked beans, macaroni salad, potato salad, hot dogs, hamburgers, and fresh fruit. So my guests better come hungry!!!

"Your marrying a dude with white guy dread locks and a 1860's beard...."

So I purchased my dress, well another dress. I had purchased one from Davids Bridal over a year ago. I paid it off, but it just wasn't going in the direction that I've been moving in. It is really important to us that our day be totally relaxed. Jack has seen the dress...not on me, but he has seen it. I'm unsure about shoes, but I know my hair will be down in loose curls...light in my hair..........SIGH!
