Day 6

I have now been engaged for 6 days, and my head is already spinning from the blogs and venues and color palettes and potential DIY projects. I wish I could clone myself, solely so one of me could sit at home all day, every day, and plan this wedding as quickly as I did a friend’s a couple of years ago.

Stereotypical is my name: have been dreaming of the day that I would say “I Do” for years. I have DV-R’d the series Say Yes to the Dress even before I was engaged. I creep on Facebook profiles of people I don’t know if their profile picture is from a wedding (it takes some humility to say that). There is nothing more in the world that I want than a most perfect wedding with no flaws — but my problem is that I don’t trust anyone else with making any of my decisions, and I am indecisive myself.

So I will post some things that I have flagged and bookmarked to key you in a little on what I am thinking. My initial plan was a home-made day, nice and low-key with neutral tones on a bright, crisp spring day in the greater Phoenix area. My most favorite color in the world is mustard yellow (you should see my kitchen and my Williams-Sonoma apron), and what would compliment that more than a soft grey suit and some light khaki tones? Nothing, is hopefully your answer. Below is a picture that is a little more “done-up” than I am imagining, but it has the yellow (i’m aiming for a little darker) and grey tones.

I have many DIY-projects scribbled in my handy notepad that hasn’t left my side, but I’ll post about those in the future.

There are a few venue options that I am considering, and am trying to set appointments with for my visit next weekend. The Farm at South Mountain (http://www.thefarmatsouthmountain.com/) may have the ambiance that would most perfectly fit my vision, so I’m hoping to make a stop there next Saturday. If that doesn’t work out, there is another venue that has an extremely different vibe, MonOrchid in downtown Phoenix (http://www.monorchid.com/). It’s modern and chic, but I’m not 100% sure I could pull off DIY projects to match.

In terms of places that would be uber special for my fiance and I — it’s either Arizona State University (somewhere on campus or perhaps Tempe Beach Park or Tempe Center of the Arts) or Chase Field, the home to our beloved Diamondbacks. Unfortunately I’ve contacted them and they are not giving tours on Memorial Day weekend :(. But it is where Z.’s heart lies, until we exchange “I Do’s”. 😉 And it is also the site of our first date …

So as you may conclude, hours and hours of my future will be dedicated to one event that may last 6 (?!?!!?!?!??). Which venue do you like the best?


Any suggestions to spice up the color scheme??

    I have been engaged a month now and I think I already pulled out 4 strands of hair. Good luck!
