Father Daughter Dance

When my Dad and I started talking about what we would dance to I immediately suggested MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This.’ After months of trying to convince him this was definitely the way to go, he won out and I shelved the Hammer Dance.

I compiled a list of twelve songs that didn’t suck and sent them to him, and he has narrowed the options down to four. And that’s where you can help out!

Let us know what you think we should dance to!

Take the survey and help us decide!

Next Missions….

Save the dates – we have a really awesome idea for these so keep an eye on your mailboxes!

Wedding dress – I am waiting on confirmation from the gallery for my appointment to buy my gown.  I’ve already been once and found the dress, now I just have to go back and buy it!

And I think according to my ‘the knot’ wedding app I’m supposed to meet with and choose a caterer and a florist and a cake baker.  

Mission: Accomplished!

So in one of my previous posts I stated that my next missions were to find a reception venue and pick out the color for the bridesmaid dresses… and I did BOTH!

I already posted where the reception will take place, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already.

On the way home from work a couple of weeks ago we stopped at David’s Bridal so I could look a some colors I was having a hard time deciding on based off the website.  I asked one of the sales people to show me both colors and asked Brett what he though of each one.  He liked the same one I liked and had been leaning toward anyway so that was nice!

I think having the job of naming all of the different colors of dresses would probably one of the coolest jobs.  What color is this?  Pink?  NO!  Rose petal of course.  Which coincidentally is the color I chose for the bridesmaids.  Of course.

So our wedding colors are set; pink and silver.  The church is booked.  The reception venue is booked.

Next missions: buy my dress; hire a baker; find a florist; hire a photographer; send out save the dates; start guest lists.

Whew.  And I thought we were making progress…  so…..



Okay, gotta run – I have a wedding to plan!

Week One

So, it’s been ten days since we got engaged and I’ve got to say, I am loving every minute of it!  We haven’t set anything in stone yet, but I do have some details for all of you since I know you’ve been so patient waiting for answers!

First and foremost, the date!  We have a date in mind, but it’s not confirmed with any venue yet, so technically this date could change (although I am really in love with the date since it’s so meaningful to us) – August 17, 2013!  So, mark your calendars and plan around that date.

The venue – sorry, don’t have this confirmed yet.

The honeymoon – booked!  We will be going to JAMAICA!!!!  We are so thrilled to travel to an island that neither one of us has been to, plus we’ll get to earn another stamp in the ole passport!

So, that’s all the details I have for you, for now.  But, be sure to check back, as I will be adding details as they get put in place!

And lastly, thank you  so much to all of you for being so incredibly fabulous so far!  The pure joy and excitement that has been showered upon us is a bit overwhelming to be honest.  But, I’ve said this before, we have the best people in our lives, and times like this only continue to remind me of that!
