The thing about wedding planning is there's always another new idea...always a better idea. It's fun for me to cruise around the internet looking at wedding blogs and pictures of real weddings on The Knot. I love imagining how it will look and feel in September when it's our wedding and dreaming about how much fun we're going to have. But it's mind boggling to see that no matter how creative I think I am being, someone has already executed the idea.
At first, I was a little sad about that. I love when people associate us with creativity and think we're a little off the beaten path. But then I realized that even though our wedding won't be totally unique and innovative, it WILL be our wedding. So no matter what happens or doesn't happen, no matter what ends up on our tables or in our hands, it doesn't matter. Because we'll be celebrating (and cementing) our love for each other in front of our favorite people. And that's pretty freakin' awesome.
This holiday season I was struck with the fact that this was the last year I will be Lisa D. Of course I'll always be Lisa D., but my last name will be different and that's really exciting to me. I know it's not necessarily the most modern thing in the world to do, but I can't wait to share Brian's last name.
As 2012 approaches, I am beginning to think about the smaller details of our day like how I'll wear my hair and what the cake should look like. I think I've narrowed it down to two hairstyles, one of which is up, the other is half up, half down. I want it to be fun and a little funky...but of course, I have lots of time to decide and I'll figure it out during my hair trial this summer. And I won't post pictures because Brian reads this blog and we both want him to be surprised. :)
2012. I can't believe it. Our lives are on the verge of changing so drastically, and yet, not at all-if that makes sense. We have big plans, my fiance and I, and I'm excited to see what becomes of us.
And now, to share the ugliest cake I've come across on wedding sites so far:
