Hi everyone! I don't post here super often, I'm more of lurker on Craftster.
My boyfriend proposed to me on February 26 after going out for almost a year. He got me this awesome ring, and was cool enough to listen to my qualms about not wanting an expensive one (I really don't like costly things, they bother me).http://ny-image0.etsy.com/il_570xN.218094256.jpg
We are really trying to aim for May of next year, but it all depends on if we can get the money. I'm not trying to blow a whole bunch on it, because again I just don't like expensive things. If financially we can't bear it next year, we're going to aim for the year after.
The theme we wanted for our wedding is something that reflects us, but also those we grew up with/raised us. We both come from nerdy backgrounds, he is a complete gamer (along with all his friends) and I'm a comic book nerd. We both dabble in the other's hobby, so it's not like two completely different worlds. But this is why we settled on a video game/comic book/general nerdy theme for the wedding
I'm mainly doing all the planning for the wedding (getting my fiance's input here and there) the fiance is planning the honeymoon. We also agreed on it being red
I'll be crafting a majority of it, but for now, inspiration pictures!
I got all my stuff down
The fiance wanted to wear something like this:http://www.mariasilvaphoto.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/silva_2010a-34.jpg
Except instead of a jacket, he'd wear a vest. Also, red converses
His groomsmen will be dressed in something similar to:http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4144/4991469716_85816c9c08_z.jpg
I'd prefer if my bridesmaids wear whatever dress they'd like, so long as it's about knee length and red. (I really like how it looks when bridesmaids wear different dresses)
I've got some decorations and what not lined up to make after I finish my portfolio review at the end of the month, so I'll be making sure to update this with my progress!
I hope you'll all like it
