SO, a few weeks ago, BF and I went to look at rings.
He called me over to the counter to look at one he liked. It was perfect. I love it, now I'm just waiting on him to sneak away and buy it...
And then, Crazy was born. I talked to my Mom about our recent trip, and she was not suprised, she knew it was coming. BF made the mistake of not coming on this trip to visit Mom. He should know better, she is uber productive, and so am I.
SO---In the following four hours we figured out:
Venue- B&B where we used to go for my granparents anniversaries. They went to this town on their honeymoon 63 years ago. Grandpa passed away in March, and this is how I want him to "be there". (Redent discovery- dinner for 150 guests, area for wedding and reception- $1600. Me happy.)
Theme- Vintage- the place is decorated kinda vintage/victorian/1920s era. I'm horrible at describing it, but the decorations are already there, I'm working around it.
Colors- Chocolate and olive or a lighter green
Dresss-Ivory, lace all over. I have a picture of my "dream" dress
Date- Either first or third Saturday of September 2011
Cake- gift from baker in the family
My mom is a photographer, so part of her productivity stems from that. She's been dreaming of taking my pictures.
What I am missing- ring. And I need to shut the &*% up before the process of BF actually asking. I don't want to ruin it for him.
I'm not sure what snapped, I never dreamed of being a bride. My barbies never had weddings. Princess Jasmine always got kidnapped in the back of my toy semi truck and Raggedy Ann saved her. But now, I'm looking at centerpieces...
So, my plan is to shut up in the outside world, stop talking about it to BF to give him time to buy ring and propose, and just come here when I get all giddy.
Surely someone here understands...
