Just to warn you guys, this blog might become very wedding-focused in the next four months. But I am (naturally, and obviously) really excited, so you know.
So far, everything has been falling into place incredibly easily. We have a place, a date, an officiant, colors, a photographer, my aunt will make our wedding cake and desserts (we’re having pie and cake in 4oz mason jars, and then she’s going to make us a personal cake to cut that looks like that one up there), his sister will help coordinate, decorate, and do flowers, and we even have a place that we will most likely rent for a while!
It’s all overwhelmingly wonderful. The only big thing left, for me, is finding a wedding dress. The one I’ve always adored is an antique 1800’s wedding gown that sold online for somewhere around $2,000… which is like… my entire budget for the wedding. So, you know, no antique wedding gowns for me. But I go to David’s Bridal on Monday to try on dresses, and they’re having a big sale right now… so maybe we’ll find something that evokes that antique-ness I love for much, much cheaper.
In other news, my soon-to-be-niece started her own fashion blog, and it is already awesome! I think she has great style, and she’s just so pretty anyway. I can’t wait to be her official aunt.
I should probably go before I break down into mushiness, but I just have to say: I am incredibly blessed to have future in-laws as wonderful as Mr. Owl’s family. It’s still unreal that this dream is happening!
