Just "over it..." - Planning for our big day
Planning for our big day
 
I guess with the wedding being a year away and much more of a reality, I've been changing my mind on a few things. 

1. "Having" to have a Jim Hjelm gown...My mother is paying for my gown (very nice of her!!) and of course I wouldn't feel comfortable with her paying 3K for a dress...So I was planning on purchasing a used gown from
www.preownedweddingdresses.com or such sites.  I'm over it...I've now been looking at Maggie Sottero gowns and they are just as beautiful for 1/3 of the price!

2. Ceremony time...I thought I wanted a sunset ceremony.  Then decided after watching the weather lately that if it is a chilly or cloudy day, it would be too dark and cloudy.  So now we are getting married at 5pm instead of 6pm.

3. Honeymooning in Hawaii.  I've always dreamed of honeymooning there and we decided to "break the bank" when we first got engaged and just go for it (friends of mine have honeymooned there and the average price is around 8K).  Now with the reality of purchasing our first home, paying for the wedding ourselves...we decided to go to the caribbean.  We will have an amazing time wherever we go, so now we are looking into St. Lucia (which will be like half the price!)
