Officially Getting Official

May 22, 2012

I believe that everything happens for a reason and eventually everything falls into place.  It’s no wonder that I felt getting laid off from my job was a positive thing.  Last night Mike and I decided that we are going to apply for our marriage license next week.  We’ve been together 4 years, engaged for 4 months–it’s time we get rolling.  I’m entirely ready to start a life and a family with this man–my mister, my man–as his Mrs.

With this new development came new after party plans.  We were originally going to have a backyard reception at his sister’s house, but she lives an hour and a half away.  For some family members, it would be a longer travel.  So we asked my parents last night and they agreed to let us use their backyard as a reception area.  I’ve been in party planning mode since.

I know it’s going to sound like a prom theme, but I’m thinking of an “enchanted evening” reception.  I’m thinking more of a garden party setting than a wedding reception.  Very earthy, very natural, very ethereal and a little country.  I’m thinking florals and vines, mason jars and candles, fairy lights and canopies.  Our colors will be lemon and lavender.  While planning my little heart out today, I was reminded of light up globes my mother and I saw in Walmart over the weekend.  I went there over lunch and picked up eight for my parents’ pool. 

We may not have a date yet, but it’s official–I’m planning a wedding.
