And so the planning begins!

The Wedding Plans

Ceremony and Reception Site

THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION SITE ARE BOOKED!! We knew we wanted to have our ceremony and reception at the same venue going into the planning process. After looking at several sites, we booked one! We changed our original date from July 13th, 2013 to July 27th, 2013 so that we could have the room that we wanted. It actually will work out better being later since we will be moving the end of June/beginning of July.The place is called Glen Oak. It's a golf course and is really pretty! The ceremony will be held outside (hopefully) by a gazebo and the cocktail hour/reception will be held inside in a room that had an outdoor patio attached. The price was really affordable and we get a lot for what we are paying! Here are some pictures of the venue that I found online:


Bridal Party

We have our bridal party all chosen too. For my Maid(s) of Honor I am having my two older sisters, Katie and Kelly. My bridesmaids will be my two best friends since highschool, Amanda and Laura, along with Alex's two sisters, Jamie and Shannon. Alex's best man will be his best friend Tony that he has known since elementary school. His groomsmen will be his friends Matt and Dave, his cousin Dan, and his two brother-in-laws, John and Jesse.


The color scheme that I have chosen is purple and aqua/teal. I have SO many inspiration pictures so it'll just be a narrowing down process.

On day I was showing FI my Wedding Inspiration board on Pinterest and when we came to a picture of possible centerpieces he said "Wow that looks really cool! We could definitely make those!" And thus our centerpieces were decided on. They will be something along the lines of these inspiration pics:
