So i have a minor....maybe major obsession over food. I can eat like nobodies business! my fi as well is a huge piggy just like me, we are perfect for each other. so picking the menu is going to be the best part! we havent picked anyone yet because i think we will leave it to his parents to pick, i really want Gordon Ramsy! but that is a stretch! So for our menu we wanted to do all our favorite in all the different food groups. Meats: filet mignon, gourmet burgers. Chicken: a small hen. Fish: either tuna, or salmon. Pasta: this one is a hard one because i love all kinda and i am making myself so hungry! And a veggie dish: his dad has an award winning garden with the most amazing veggies, thinking we will just make something up from that. and the desserts....that could take me forever to tell you what all we will have. but we couldnt pick what flavor cake we wanted so we thought we might as well have all of them (it turns out, we have 11 favorite flavors) so 11 different cakes, smores, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream, donuts, and because i have such a sweet tooth....a candy buffet of all my favorites. I am so excited for this part!
And then for the kiddos i was thinking it would be super fun to do this......
the first here are all short, ideas for the rehearsal dinner dress, as you can see i like my dresses short and playful. all of these are so cute and fun, wish i could make up my mind!
now the rest here are my ideas of bridesmaids. they will be made so i will have to come up with some styles and designs and also check with the BM to see which one they will feel comfortable in.
the rest of the pictures are ideas for my own dress and some super awesome shoes! i know i should probably wait on finding the shoes because i am sure there will be some really cool ones to come out next year. but here are just some ideas. shoes are also for bridesmaids.
there are so many that i like, i want to take a little from each to make my own!
as you can see i have a minor obsession with peonies. I just think they are so beautiful. they are fluffy and big and smell amazing. i am afraid although, that peonies might not be in season in october (i actually know they are not but i am hoping they will still be around) my colors are a little different than the pictures you see here. i wont be doing the bright pinks. they are amazing but just not what i have in mind. I am looking for something more pale pink and a dark purple. even the white would be pretty. I also really like the green flowers above. and the arrangements of most of these pictures. wont be doing anything tall. all short and wide (hate when you can see over the tables because of a huge tall arrangement. so just a few ideas.....still looking!

So...we are getting married October 2 2010, (10 to 10)....(ten two ten)....i like that way that sounds. But we picked 10.2.10 for a few different reasons, we got engaged in july and needed time to take classes and for my fi to become a catholic.....big deal so we had to push it back. also because we wanted a fall wedding and fall in ca is SO nice! santa monica, malibu.....so right by the water
colors are changing all the time, its going to be an eclectic wedding, all different colors but in the same shades.....a pale pale pick, eggplant purple, and black. with some emerald greens. such as, i will wear a magnolia in my hair will their dark green leaves.....and my fi will wear one but on his jacket. no one else will have green. and my shoes ( i am hoping will be a dark velvet blue, sapphire blue, along with sapphire earings...which will be my something blue! But those are my colors and the bridesmaid i am still in a bind weather to do all different colors or all the same.....ugh! The flowers will be all different as well....pictures to come!
