It's official! We set a wedding date.
We signed the contract last night at a gorgeous old hotel that was once a family home in Cleveland.
We will be getting married on the lawn and celebrating under a big white tent (with chandeliers, of course!) over Memorial Day Weekend of 2013.
The white tent is gorgeous, and I can't wait to pick out table linens, place settings, and flowers. We are doing lots of blues everywhere with hydrangeas as my number one flower pick now, and with a mix of blue and white and vintage silver for centerpieces.
Love the idea of using a mirror for table assignments, and then hanging it in your home.
This is probably much more casual than we'll go, but love the striped runner.
I love lots of white with the white tent and another option for a blue runner.
Silver and white, so classic.
And I love the idea of doing silhouettes throughout the wedding (on programs, save the dates, etc.) and also including games for the lawn.
As SHS said to our caterer, "I'm sure there will be pink there, too. My future bride is kind of a pink girl."
Our next steps are to book our photographer, ask my bridesmaids (hopefully I can do a post on this next week!) and go to a preliminary tasting to help us with catering options.
How did you start with your own wedding planning? Are there colors or flowers or themes that you had in mind already? Any aspects of a wedding you can't wait to have one day at yours?
