Well, here goes...

So I've decided to do a blog...been thinking about it for a while, mainly to just organize my own thoughts on this wedding, and to get feedback on some things without David seeing any of it...! (he doesn't care about any of this, as most of you that are already married can probably attest to...) I've made pretty much all of the big decisions already, put deposits down on the church and for the d.j., and now...we wait...

aaaaand, we that's what I've decided to do. To post pictures of stuff, get opinions on things...all that. I'd originally thought that was what the wedding website I created was for, but it's pretty limited in what you can do, without paying for it basically, and there's some stuff I don't want David to see (uh, like my dress...!) so I figured this was a great way to do that! So here goes...

So the first picture is the dress I've chosen for Abby, my junior bridesmaid. She really wants to add a hot pink sash or ribbon to the waist, and we'll probably do that or something else to make her "stand out from the other bridesmaids." She really feels like she should be completely separate from the others...of course, she's 12, and her opinion should be taken with a grain of salt (she also considered having hot pink glitter in her hair...ummmm, no).

Now on to the bridesmaid dresses...
I really like these cause they're cute and comfortable and flattering on anyone (my sister has said I should probably be prepared to have hers let out..."just in case" she's pregnant...whatever, Kristin...)

The bridal party:
Matron of Honor: Becky (Wood) Bryan
Matron of Honor: Kristin (my sister)
Maid of Honor: Laura Powell
Bridesmaid: Laura (Hull) Messer
Bridesmaid: Missy Stapleton

So with Abby, that makes six. And I'm thrilled these women agreed to do this for me (of those five I've been in three of their weddings and will be in one other one!)

I haven't ordered these dresses just yet, mainly cause I need some feedback on them. And just in case anyone didn't know, the colors are black and hot pink (with a little orange too), so I had considered hot pink dresses too...and I think I just saw Becky cringe a little bit... :)

Kelsey - I love the dresses and I kinda like the idea of a hot pink sash for Abby! Just say no to hot pink hair! (I had hot pink highlights for a month - hormones, mid life crisis, who knows!)
