My favorite great-aunt (who was in on my engagement surprise) and is quickly becoming my wedding coordinator/motivator in addition to my design and floral maven, gave me reality check last night when I popped over to her house for dinner after work.
"Katie", she said (let's call her Aunt Jet for the purpose of this blog)."I know you are online doing a lot of research and reading your blogs or whatever they are and seeing what you like and don't like...But you haven't made any decisions! We have a lot of things to do that we can start now so you are not a ball of stress two weeks before the wedding."
"But I like looking at other pretty weddings and dreaming!" I said.
She wasn't having it.
She made me sit down right there and make a to-do list. I have a deadline. I have to get back to her with information and decisions by the end of the week on ceremony decorations, my veil (which she is making), my reception dessert(no cake!, but can we afford it?), and the girls' bridesmaid dresses.
So I did. I made a decision.
A fingertip length mantilla veil.And just because I hate to post a blog without a picture...here are the pictures I'm sending her that I want her to model my veil after.
We're shopping for lace this weekend!
