How would you feel getting this as a favor?  I’m also thinking of using them to attach escort cards to with tags tied with raffia/ribbon.  Thoughts?  The one on the right looks orange, right?  Somehow in the store Tresvant and my sister swear it’s red.  See a color theme?  PINK, BABY with accents of orange…at least that’s what I decided on today.  Now if I could only find bridesmaids’ dresses that we all I like that would look great on everyone’s figure.

So yeah, as far as themes…it’s a garden wedding and I’m still on my rustic chic homegrown wedding kick.   I saved these photos from all over and have been for awhile…some new, some old.  I didn’t plan to post this so I didn’t save credits…if you recognize a/your picture please let me know and I will credit you or take it off at your request.   Anyway, there are tons of mason jars in my future, kids!!!!

I’m sorry yall.  I’ve been drowning in a pool of Other People’s Opinions and my indecision and I just had to take a break from it all.  If only I had the luxury of time…haha!  Anyway, I did meet with a wedding planner and get our Save The Dates done and some other stuff that I will share soon but one thing is bugging me…is my dress *the* one?  It’s not a traditional wedding dress but it is very me, very sleek, and I thought it could be made right with a veil.  Now, I’m not so sure.  What veils go with those types of dresses anyway? I think I’m gonna head out and try on some dresses tonight and report back tomorrow.  Anyone else feeling like this?

Also, this is a current discussion that we’re having…do you need servers at a buffet?  I’m a picky eater and would prefer to make my own plate.  I even get annoyed at Chipotle when I have to tell dudes TWO scoops of corn salsa let alone tell a chick to add some more rice pilaf and almondy green beans to my place because I don’t eat meat.  Anyway, where do ya’ll weigh in on this?

*This isn’t my dress but it’s about as casual.  This is from David’s Bridal, the Charmeuse Dress with Softly Draped Strap Detail Style INT1049.

Yup, I’m still thinking about The List.  A friend mentioned free-for-all seating but I know my family and I know one thing- they need assigned seats.  I also want to make sure the dancers congregate with other dancers, that like people mix, that each of our families have a chance to mingle and don’t all congregate to opposite sides of the room.  As a shy person, assigned seats make me very, very happy.  Non-assigned seats give me nightmare flashbacks of scanning the cafeteria looking for my peoples or conference luncheons looking for any friendly face and seats without scarves and purses already in them…NO THANKS. 

I’m in love with the chalk board seating chart, this window pane is insanely beautiful, and the bright-bordered charts here are lovely….buuuuuuut I’m short on patience and time and I don’t feel like worrying about my scraggly handwriting or spending hours and mad dollars printing and designing something of my own. 

Anyway, all that to say…LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND.  For only $34 even!  A large printed poster assigned seating chart. All I have to do is type.  HOLLA!  Has anyone used Zazzle before?  Let me know.  I’m hyped.  They have other selections and colors too.  See anything you like?

I collected these above images before I had the sense enough to write down where I found them…if these are yours (or you recognize them), PLEASE LET ME KNOW and I will gladly credit them or remove them.
