Off to my wedding this weekend! Tomorrow morning we are leaving for Helen, Ga, where the wedding festivities will be. I'm so excited to visit with everyone and finally see this enormous 4.5 month-long project to completion! Ahh it will be so good to just relax afterwards, and not be thinking all the wedding planning I have to get done.
Even though Matt doesn't like how his sideburns curve into his face, this is one of my favorite pics of us:
My first trip up to Matt's parent's barn (where we are getting married). It's so weird to think that the same spot where Matt took this picture two years ago is where we will be getting married:
The Hay Shed, where we will dance by the river:
Does anyone have any advice for me for this weekend? It would be much appreciated. I just really want to enjoy it!
I love the idea of keeping uniqueness in a wedding. That's why I let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses. I gave them a fall color pallet, with nine different colors on there. I have eight bmaids, so one color was not used (surprisingly it was red).
They got to pick out their dresses based on the color they chose. I think it works well with everyone, because they might already have the color and not have to buy a dress, and also lets them add their own flair.
Here are some weddings where the girls got to pick their own dresses, and it looks great.
This is a hilarious article in the New Yorker by Mindy Kaling (Kelly from the Office). She is spot on with this analysis about the 7 types of women in romantic comedies!
When a beautiful actress is cast in a movie, executives rack their brains to find some kind of flaw in the character she plays that will still allow her to be palatable. She can’t be overweight or not perfect-looking, because who would pay to see that? A female who is not one hundred per cent perfect-looking in every way? You might as well film a dead squid decaying on a beach somewhere for two hours.
