*Ava* Life/Wedding Update

Hey girls! I think this is a great idea so we can become more involved with each other!


My wedding is set for April 30, 2011 in Sarasota, FL. To give you all some background, I was born and raised in New Jersey, but moved down to Tampa, FL to be with my now FI when I graduated college 2 years ago. Best decision ever! I love Florida and am so happy. My FI is from Sarasota, which is about an hour away from Tampa. You can check out my venues in my bio.


We haven't done much asides from booking our venus. *shrug* I'm so indecisive that I keep second guessing myself on everything. Right now, I'm contemplating changing our color scheme. Originally, I thought I wanted ivory, champagne,and pale/dusty pink. But, my favorite color is purple and I want to include it. So I'm thinking of doing ivory, a dark silver, pale/dusty purple, and pale/dusty pink. Also, I think I've found my dress (pic in bio-- friend request me). I'm just waiting for my mom to get down to FL so that she can approve it!


Life wise, everything is pretty standard. I'm working and doing school full time. I'm in my first year towards getting my Master's to be a school psychologist.

I can agree with the "color changeing" issue, im having that same problem myself :) Im sure what ever you decide on will be beautiful, both color choices sound really pretty! Congrats to you having your venues booked also, thats the biggest thing to worry about, the rest is the fun stuff! Congrats on everything and happy planning :)

Yeah, me too...I can't help but buy things when they are on sale too...my wedding is in August 2011, so I'll have a ton of time to buy things I probably won't use!!!! :)

My "plans" have evolved over the past few monts since being engaged (Dec 25, 2009). My first plan was to have a backyard wedding and invest our money in our backyard...and then I really thought about it and realized that it would probably cost the same to have it at a relatively inexpensive venue and NOT have to deal with the cleaning...so for the past few months i've been looking for affordable venues. I've looked at 4 different venues and have a few more on my list.

@nicksmom0401 I completely understand! I have been engaged for 4 years! lol so I know how you feel about changing plans. We finally set a date for May 2011 and Ive been doing the same thing with buying stuff as I see them. Our wedding is more then a year away and I already have bouquets made lol. But I think its smart to get as much done in the beginning stages of planning as you can, that way in the end you arent so stressed with last minute details.

I keep changing my ideas for colourschemes too! I think having the time makes it harder to just make the choice and stick with it!

Since our reception will be at home and it'll be a very intimate, small, yet very classy wedding party I have to stick at Black, white, silver and lots of blings. Cause these colours are our home decoration. Just to make things easier for us! I'm still thinking about the accent colour though (flowers/center piece). Hot pink seems very nice I think...
