Indecisive Wedding Planning

There are two things in life that I am indecisive about namely, where to eat for dinner and MY WEDDING.  I thought I would be the girl that just dove head first into wedding planning -- well, I was mistaken.  Don't get me wrong I have done some things, but I thought I would be all-consumed.  Zack and I have been engaged for over a year now and have just about a year to go until the wedding.  While that is a long time for some people - for a person who plans EVERYTHING - it is giving me a nervous twitch.  Luckily, my Uncle has agreed to help me along the way.  It took me a year to decide on a venue.  I thought about the Duke Mansion, Vanlandingham Estate, eloping (Mom, you didn't read that), and etc.  Last week, I finally got the contract signed, sealed, and delivered for the Foundation for the Carolinas (discussed here).  So, that is something checked off my list.  Now, I don't even know what I want this wedding to look like.  Modern? Absolutely.  Colors?  Eh, there are too may to choose from.  Food?  No clue.

So, here's my plea for help... if you've seen any cute ideas lately, send them my way!!!  Caveat, I am not a traditional bride -- I don't want it to look a bright Easter egg with color everywhere.  Instead, modern, streamlined, fresh, clean, and so on.

I also decided that I needed to work on my organization for this shindig.  Lauren, my maid of honor and law school classmate, has a folder in her gmail named "Rachel's Wedding."  How do I know this?  I was spying on her laptop when I should have been paying attention in class.  Sorry love!  I then realized that I don't even have this level of organization - so, I quickly added a tab to my computer to compensate and moved all wedding related emails to the appropriate place.  While this sounds silly, it was my wake up call.  Thanks for the motivation Lauren! 

Instead of daydreaming about my wedding, I am currently reserving those dreams for our engagement pictures on Feb. 6th with KVP and LRT.  These ladies are over-the-top incredible!  I've even managed to make it to the gym 3 times in the last week (that's huge for mwah) in preparation for the big day. 

So with all of this rambling to a close, I have decided that at the very least, come April of next year, Zack and I will be wed and have some great pictures.  That's all that matters right?    

Happy Thursday Friends!
