Day 7 — A Sigh of Relief, but More Options??

Little do you know, this last week has been incredibly stressful … up until yesterday. I’d like to thank everyone that looked at my blog and voted for venues because today was the first day that I woke up and felt as though I didn’t have a million things to do. This blog is what is going to keep me sane until the minutes before I walk down an aisle, somewhere … :]

I have a great amount of support pouring in, from friends and family alike, but I still felt disconnected as a bride planning an Arizona-based shindig from the beautiful state of CA. This blog has been my connection to all of the people that I hold dear to my heart: here in California, one in Colorado, and countless from my home, sweet home Arizona. I love being able to pour my heart and passion for perfection onto this website and have a single, simple way of communicating with the people that want to know every little detail. So I hope you all stay interested for the next 10 months.

I have taken the time to attempt an inspiration board — who knows if I will ever do this again. Placement of specific pictures, layering, palettes, blah; I’m in need of a nap, now. This board almost perfectly depicts what my original vision is/was. Please be kind, I’m not nearly as talented as M., who’s blog I was recently featured in @ http://jetsetmeg.blogspot.com (ahhhh-mazing, might I add).

My original scheme/feel/goal, the best that I can create.

So, not to confuse any of you … but (perhaps, unfortunately) I have now come across two additional colors that I am forcing myself not to adopt until I talk to you all (I haven’t even warned my fiance, Z., about this yet). I do not know if I would simply add one to the previously stated color scheme, or totally throw my favorite color out and opt for something that is new and fresh. I’ll fill you in:

1: Peach. It’s feminine and subtle, but not pink. Pink is not the color for me, nor one of Z.’s groomsmen who has fair, freckly skin and a head of Red. I think that the peach would pop with the mustard and grey and creams, presenting a color palette that is season-appropriate (looking for venues that are available any weekend in March or the first couple of April, so a spring-time wedding).

Peach and grey board ... imagine the yellow with this. Maybe I'll make one ... blah.

2: Mint or Seafoam. This is normally a color that wouldn’t top my list, but these inspiration boards are just that: inspirational. I think that if not careful, the light green may get lost in an outdoor setting, so I am leaning more towards this if my love lies with MonOrchid next weekend. Just imagine the black and stark white walls and architecture with a grey and seafoam or mint theme — I truly think the mint would create amazing contrast.

Seafoam = dreamy.

Please please please leave your comments!!

Oh yeah … yay for being engaged for a week!! (baaahh … hahahahaha)

Evening of Day 6 (just for jill)

As the night lingers on and I become more and more inspired by the increasing view count on the dashboard, a text message enters @ stage right.

It’s Jill, of course. She’s requesting more blogging — ironically, right after I agreed with a friend that I need to balance my life and not let all this planning take over my thoughts and dreams.  I laughed.

I don’t really want to take my mind off of the idea: a (insert not-yet-chosen adjective) yellow and dark grey flood of pictures and DIY projects and suits and suspenders envelope me. I am so unbelievably excited and at the same time, the most stressed I have been for at least a year.

My trusty notepad is tucked tightly into my nude-toned purse, it’s permanent home until probably the wedding day. Every idea that comes to mind, every song that must be played, every ounce of inspiration gets jotted down or pseudo-sketched in hopes that I capture the ambiance it portrays.

A friend from school is in the midst of creating two inspiration boards for me — how adorable is she?!? She is one of the most creative writers and designers and I follow her blog rather religiously. Check her @ jetsetmeg.blogspot.com — I really cannot wait until she posts them. I’m honored to be featured  :]
