My Colors...No date yet...House Update!


I have changed the colors for my wedding about 3 or 4 different times. Am I the only one that did that??? Well...it was first teal and brown, then it was turquoise and brown...well...then I went to Michaels to see what they would have as far as flowers go because I wanted turquoise colored silk Gerbera daisies...they didn't have any. As I looked at their choice of colors for their daisies I then made the decision to change my colors when I saw the flowers in the picture. I fell in love with both the colors and the flowers! So it's official and Lord willing it will not change...these are my colors for the wedding. All the bright summery shade of orange, yellow, blue, pink, and green. Each bridesmaid will wear a different color dress and the groomsmen will wear a tie to match the bridesmaid they are paired with.

I'm getting SO excited now that I am actually starting to plan things. I think Momma is started to get somewhat nervous. We still haven't set a date yet because we are still waiting on some things with the house. (I will update you on that in a minute) Lord willing we want to be married by fall. We are praying that a specific date will work out, it's a very special date for the both of us...we are hoping for July 11th. We were both saved on July 11th, just 10 years apart! So we thought that since July 11th is on a Saturday this year, and it is a special day in both our lives that it would be so neat to get married on the day that we both got saved. So just help us pray that if that be the Lord's will, He will work it out.

We put a contract in on that house I had asked you to help us pray about a few weeks ago. We are waiting on a closing date to be set. The deadline to close on is March 9th, and if we don't close by then it will be $50 for every day we don't close. So please help us pray about that as well.

Oh yeah, I also did TONS of research on the internet and found a very modest and very beautiful dress for $134.99 and what this company does is you send them your measurements and they make the dress to your size, and they will send it to you with no shipping costs. The same dress was being sold on another site for $600.00! So, Lord willing I will be ordering my dress soon...hopefully!

different colored dresses is a great idea! It works great so the bridesmaids don't feel like clones... lol.

I had my bridesmaids wear different styles of dresses and different shades of pink... it actually looked awesome together!

July 11th would be a great day to get married! Are you having it inside your church or are you going to have an outdoor wedding?

Kathie,
We're going to have it in my church. I have always been one of those scared to death to have an outdoor wedding because I have a fear of bad weather. Plus I always like to play it safe...and safe is inside the church! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
