My fiance proposed on July 5th so I haven't gotten too much planned yet It was a total surprise--I knew he was coming upstate to ask my parents for their permission and blessings but I didn't know he planned on asking me a question too! We are planning a January 2010 wedding if it'll pan out. First he is moving closer to me--he's an hour and a half away--and then we need to book a venue. We don't have too much planned yet and I'm getting odd looks already when I say that I want to craft a lot of the wedding.
This is where he proposed:
Non-crafties just don't get it!! So far I have bridesmaid dresses. My boss called to tell me we had gorgeous $150 dresses on clearance for $9.00. Yup. $9. I of course had her put 3 on the side and rushed down after I got off my shift at the second location. They are beautiful!! So I got one for fiance's sister ( bridesmaid #1) and my little sister ( bridesmaid #2) and one for me cuz ya never know and for that price?!!! So this is the shot I sent fiance of me in the dress....
MOH is my older sister. That dress may take a little bit. She has been working out so we can't commit to a dress yet. And most likely my mom will have to make it. My colors are soft blue, black and touches of silver/white. So I want her to pick the style of it--I just want her to have a blue dress with black trim or black on it somewhere to tie into the other 2. We want to keep things simple. He doesn't like cake and I've wanted a cup cake tier for awhile so I'm thinking the top tier will be an apple pie for us instead of cake. I have a few other ideas floating around in my head but until we have a venue and a definite date I'm not too sure what else I can get started on!!
