Wedding Planning

I am so pleased to announce that Nate and Kayleigh have set a date for their wedding.  It will be in early fall next year.

We've been looking at dresses.  She is not your traditional bride - she has always dreamed of wearing her favorite color (and mine) RED!  

There are some beautiful red dresses and we know that she'll find just the right one.  She did try on a beautiful white gown with a veil and was so beautiful.  I am encouraging her to wear the color she wants, a bride should not feel disappointed in her gown on her wedding day.

We are busy talking venues, type of reception - a full meal or a dessert bar?  What time of day, how many in your bridal party, etc.

It's fun.  

We are using Pinterest for ideas.  They want their colors to be red (obviously), white, and black.  It will be very pretty together.  There are so many pretty options in this color scheme.

The wedding is eleven months away.  That is plenty of time to work out the details and get ready.  We are all excited and happy for them.

Disclaimer - None of these are Kayleigh's choices for her wedding, so I am not giving away secrets!  No worries!


  1. How exciting! I think it's wonderful that you are encouraging her to wear what color she wants!

  2. It is exciting! My daughter wanted to wear red also, it was a Decembet wedding. We bought a red gown but at the last minute she decided she wanted the traditional white!

  3. You know I'd love red but at the time (forty years ago), it wasn't thought to be suitable. Some changes are for the good.

    So I had my second favorite color by carrying yellow roses, my bridesmaids wore yellow dresses and carried daisies.

  4. Congratulations to all of you!

    It will be such fun to gather ideas and thoughts and plans! As you do, I think that a wedding should reflect the personality of the bride and groom. Who needs a "cookie cutter" wedding?!

  5. Exciting days. These are lovely inspiration ideas.

  6. Oh that's exciting! Enjoy the planning:) HUGS!

  7. This is going to be a striking wedding. One to remember, for sure.

    Wonderful that you and she are on the same page. The bride should have the wedding, she wishes. Lovely!

    Happy rest of October,
