The boys can have some attention … :]

As the planning comes along, more and more questions arise. Z. asked me where my favor lies in regards to bow ties or neckties. I have no particular one that strikes me as better than the other but I can’t seem to make up my mind. I’m guilty for having concentrated on all of the “girly” details, so in all honesty I haven’t given the groomsmen any thought, yet. Oops!! Hopefully this entire post about the tie issue will buy me some forgiveness. :]

Yellow Necktie

This yellow necktie is fun, yet still more on the formal side. It looks clean and sophisticated, and I’m adoring the look. Z. has a couple of fair-skinned groomsmen that he had particularly been concerned about in regards to the yellow — will they look washed out? This option definitely keeps more of the yellow tucked away from the face. What fashionista came up with that color palette?? :]

Yellow and grey-striped bow tie.

On the fabulous board that M. created for me, she included a yellow and grey striped bow tie, which I ADORE. This would help to keep the atmosphere light and fun, which is exactly what I want. As I would be concerned with a solid yellow bow tie bringing more yellow closer to the face, this almost dilutes the yellow. This is a contender.

Without a doubt, the groomsmen will be in yellow suspenders, so I’m trying to picture which tie would look best — I think that the bow tie would almost be comical, and that’s a little too laid-back than what I’m aiming for.

Well, after this weekend Z. and I have appointments with 6 out of our 9 venue choices for Memorial Day weekend, where we will make our trek to the great state of Arizona in search for the perfect place to get married. After that I will then 100% confirm the feel and the color scheme and the style because who knows? I may show up somewhere and fall in love with a venue that strikes a different fancy, and everything may be flopped (then I’d really go nuts)! Once we return from Phoenix I will definitely let you in on all of my pictures and ideas and blog about each venue, but until then all I have to do is dream about more little details … I HAVE to keep busy. :]

If you have any blog requests, feel free to leave comments!! I have no doubt that I will eventually be out of crazy details and brilliant ideas …

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  :]
