hello there :)
Hello lovely ladies.
I'm Audra and my wonderful fiance, Matthew, and I are planning our wedding for November 2, 2013 (unless my dear parents decide to throw a kink in it (another story for another time)) and we are SOOOOO super excited!! I have been looking forward to this for so long, and am so elated that I get to start planning the beginning of our life together!!
However, I did not realize how many little details there were, and I am a detail person! We are getting married in a Baptist church on a local university campus (even though we are not Baptist, the church is beautiful, and has an organ, which I love). The carpet is a reddish-maroonish color, and I am having the hardest time selecting colors for our wedding. Every time I find a color scheme I like, I become afraid that it will clash with the carpet. I love purple, and also like navy. I know I definitely want to use a champagne or ivory color in our wedding as well. I really lean towards pastel type purples and blues, but we are getting married in the fall - not the spring. To complicate matters, Matt doesn't care for navy, he prefers a royal blue (and I was totally just beginning to dig a navy/ivory scheme). And then today I saw this beautiful combination of a soft lavender, black, and champagne that I really, really like. Any advice on how to choose main and accent colors?
Also, another question.... how in the world do you decide on the formality?! I LOVED Kate Middleton's dress and soon as I saw it I decided that it was the dress for me (provided it looks right :) ), and David's Bridal has one like it that I can not wait to try on. However, Matt and I decided quite some time ago that we wanted to wear our Converse in our wedding (we have always had a matching pair since we met almost 4 years ago and they are one of those "unique" things to our relationship). That combination does not go together. I did stop by David's Bridal a few weeks ago and just browsed.... and there are honestly SO many dresses within my budget that I would love to try on, and they range from formal to semi-formal. Heeeelllp.
These are good problems to have though. So looking forward to getting to know you all!! :)
