This is it! The ground breaking mrandmrsbaker post! I realize that I am very gung-ho about this blog right now, and that that will probably change…but I am going to do my very best to keep this up-to-date. There isn’t much to say about the planning process yet..there hasn’t been much planned. To date we’ve been engaged for 1 month and a half. We’ve decided on some basic things and have secured the officiant. Now, the most pressing decision to be made is where the actual shindig will take place. We have several places in mind, all great locations with different advantages. I’ve fallen in love with a reception site..so it is just a matter of reserving it in time (before someone else gets it), and finding a ceremony site not too far away that will work for our purposes. We want our big day to be perfect which makes it the tiniest bit stressful, even though we both agree that it will be perfect no matter what, even if we get married next to a dumpster (his words, not mine 🙂 )Today we went and looked at Hallmark, to see their custom printing section and get ideas from their samples for our save the dates and invitations. We’ve also registered, and that is very exciting, although we need to go through our lists and finalize them. We have yet to find bedding that we like, or a knife set and pots and pans. We need to do some research on knives, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to pass them on! I think I’ve found the pots and pans that I want..we’ll just have to register at one more store, I’ll let you know when we are ready for publication. Okay…list of things we’ve decided on so far:
Officiant: David McKinney Jr. (Worship Pastor for Liberty University)
Colors: Navy Blue and White with Light Pink Accents
Locale: Lynchburg(ish) Va Exact location TBD
Registered at: Macy’s, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond
Sad..but it is kind of true..this is all we’ve decided on 🙂 I almost forgot! We have an idea of what we want to do for our honeymoon, and just need to buy the plane tickets and everything will be set! Please don’t be offended..we aren’t telling anyone (at least that is the plan) where we are going. We’ve both been working crazy hours and it will be equally crazy for the next month or so. My goal is to have everything set in stone by February 1st, that way I can worry about the details and relax until the big day.
Pray for us..work is long and stressful these days. Throw in planning and paying for a wedding, reception, and honeymoon. We’ll make it through..of this I’m sure. I love him so very much!
