Wedding Snapshot

I promised I would post a few wedding details and progress so far. These past couple Saturday's I have spent gathering information and ideas at bridal shows. My mom, Danielle, Ashley, and I went to the bridal show at the Salt Palace and to lunch at Macaroni Grill. It was so much fun to have a girls day and gush over all the fun aspects of planning a wedding. I even won $300 certificate for a DJ. Then last weekend we went to the bridal show at the Grand America hotel. It was fun, but we got there at the end and spent post of the time running around getting a paper signed by all 106 booths to enter in for the contest. We did it, but didn't win the grand prize. Dang. We have one more bridal show at the South Towne Expo Center next week, which I'm excited to go to. I love planning a wedding, its hard to stick to just one idea.

Jeff and I decided we want to have an outdoor reception and keep it pretty simple. We want it to be more of a party then the typical "meet and greet" Mormon receptions. My cousin Chelsea had such a fun wedding last March. People were dancing and talking and having a great time. I hate going to wedding receptions where you go through the line, get a piece of cake, and then go home. There is no fun in that. We are going to have a ring ceremony in the early morning, so we can have the whole walking down the isle and my family can see me get married. Then we will get sealed in the Salt Lake temple and we will have a lunch following. Then we will do a backyard reception in Jeff's parent's backyard. We will have an hour for the "meet and greet" line and then it'll be dancing and a party for the rest of the night. The colors we chose are actually Jeff's favorite color and my favorite color combined: Red and Aqua! We want it to have a retro feel to it. Here's some picture collages I have gathered as my inspiration.

I know this is with orange...imagine with red. I really love the "LOVE" sign and font.

Please comment and let me know what you think. Any other ideas, suggestions, or advice? It would be appreciated.
