African American Weddings

EXCITED

OK...I know I freaked out on you all a couple of weeks ago when I stated that I had to stop planning my wedding because of the situation with FI's house. Welllllll he meets with them tomorrow to actually get prepared to get his butt out of his house so they can begin construction on July 2!! So of course he called me today to tell me that we would be in the house officially in October of this year! I am uber excited!! He must have talked to my mom because she called BEFORE he did and was like NOW...when are we going shopping for bridesmaids dresses and your dress? I was like huh...she said oh shoot you haven't talked to Bae yet (I call him bae so much everyone else does even my 4 yr old lol). I told her no and she literally HUNG up in my face. Then he called me...he told me that his goal is for us to only to have to push the wedding back to Labor Day of 2013...so now it looks like I am going to be a September 2013 bride instead of a July 2013 Bride...

I have also changed my entire color scheme too...My bridesmaids are going to be in IVORY with Leopard print shoes!! Bae changed his tux to be in all ivory and the groomsmen are going to wear the ivory dinner jackets with black pants and ivory ties and vests. I am going to post my inspiration board in a few once I get all the pics compiled....

Now my only thing to do is wait until Bae officially moves out of his house and they bust walls out before I get super excited with all this planning...but for my mom to be excited tho...lol

  • @Elizabeth80 September will be nowhere cooler than July in New Orleans..lol we have had Christmases where we've had on shorts lol...but thanks I hope that it will be pretty!

    @footballwife77 Thanks! I am trying to maintain my excitement to a certain degree...FI feels like I will personally drive to Florida and blow up Knauff offices if they move his construction date back again

    @sultryzuku Thanks sooo much! Yes Ma'am leopard print shoes!! I am such a girl that is against the grain and nothing pertaining to my wedding will be of the norm...NOTHING!!

    @thedivav Thanks!! Well with the lawsuit they have 90 days EXACTLY to complete construction...they are guttiing the house and basically starting over because of the drywall. If they aren't done within the 90 days they have to come off MORE money that goes into FI's lump sum account! But out of the 17 (yes 17) people that we know with these house issues they have had them out and back in within those 90 days....but thanks I will remain prayerful!
  • Thanks so much Soror!!

    I am super excited about the color scheme! Yes bust it on them!! I am always finding the weirdest (well that's what Bae calls them) shoes to go with things!

  • Thanks sooo much I surely will! I know as picky as we are both of us will be going over there to see how progress is going...His house was meant for tall people...I asked the contractors if they could bring the cabinets in the kitchen down a notch (currently I damn near climb on top of the counter to get stuff) and the closet...uh yeah I have a step ladder in there just to hang my clothes on the top rung...NO LIE! I hope they move it down
