1st WR Purchase

I bought a ton of ornaments and peacock like birds on clearance at Target today 50% off. I was thinking of stringing the balls to decorate the tent and incorporating them into centerpieces.  Im sure im getting ahead of myself as i have just begun the planning proccess and who knows how this will all evolve as it gets closer. But I couldn't resist the deal. I figure I have 90 days to be sure I need them.

Now I know what to do with the spare room in our house. It will be my new wedding planning room. woohoo!

    The first of many!

    I actually did that right after I got engaged too...some of the stuff got repurposed for other uses than I originaly intended, but most of it IS getting used, which is always good.

    yeah, i figure at the very least i will have a VERY decorated christmas tree next year and can make a cool mobile out of the peacocks

    Yea, the first couple months I bought a cake topper, two pairs of flip flops to get married in, a dress (eek!), and some random jewelry.  I think I'll bag the jewelry, but the rest will get used.  The dress I still love.  I haven't bought anything since then, though.  :)

    Like I said, just make sure you take some time to enjoy your engagement.  I totally overwhelmed FI with wedding stuff the first couple months, and I really wish I hadn't.  It'd have made things so much easier now when I really need his input if I hadn't wasted so much time talking about the minutiae that I talked about with him then (which is like sooooo not important yet!).

    carrie, Ive been talking about our wedding for the past 10 years. now that we are engaged, he is actually putting up with it. I guess that means hes ready :) Though i will keep in mind not to go on overload.  Trying to take it one step at a time.  I mostly use my FI to agree with me since most of it is brainstorming ideas. Once we get some big decisions being made, i will definately need to include him more. 

    oh and your furbaby is adorable.  Is he/she a shih tzu or Lhasa?
    This is my Wally, hes a Shorkiepoo (1/2 shih tzu 1/4yorkie 1/4poodle). This is his first birthday which was last month

    That sounds great! I'm trying to think of the first thing I bought... I think it may have been a Bride hat. Thought it was cute, haven't worn it since, ha! Not really a hat person...

    Kahala - Brainstorming is fun.  So many options at this point!

    My little guy is a mix of mostly Lhasa and some Shih Tzu.  I love the pic of yours!  He's adorable.  They get away with more being so cute, don't you think?  :)

    Just don't buy things right away that you can't return! The night that we set our date I ordered 300 sunflowers, no cancellations or changes under any circumstances. Really wishing I didn't do that!!!

    Haha dogs definitely get away with more being cute! My lil puppers is quite the rascal, but I certainly can't get mad at her for more than 2 minutes :]

    the first of many is right! congrats!

    i agree with pp that you shouldn't purchase much that you can't return because believe me, your ideas will change!

    i did that with vases, they were in expensive, but now i wish i had some taller ones and refuse to spend the money. other than that, i haven't really purchased anything that i haven't used. so that is exciting!
