The Wedding part 2 (go here for part 1)
The most important thing to choose after you've chosen your bridegroom is, apparently the 'wedding colours'. And maybe a theme. Maybe the colours are the theme... Fortunately for Mousie, she didn't have to think very hard about the colours. She didn't have to tell me either, coz I just knew they would be... Purple, Silver and Black.
The theme came about from the invitation wording, which I found on the interwebs. I sent a whole bunch of wording possibilities for her to choose from but I just knew she would choose the one she chose.

I may buy them each a fairy crown. Maybe...
Yesterday we returned to the venue so that the happy couple could decide on their table settings. There were two possibilities and in the end it was decided to alternate the two table settings.
|Table setting one.|
|Table setting two|
|Something like this, but with black.|
|The floral centrepieces. The wedding bouquets will be similar.|
My parents came with to see the venue, and add any ideas. They really liked the place. Even PopHaw said it was just right for them and kind of cozy and MaHaw added some great ideas for the table decor.
|Busy, busy making ideas.|
The menu was briefly discussed and some changes were made. We also more or less decided how we're going to do the music. Oh did I mention? I'm in charge of all the wedding music (insert evil cackle here). To save money, and because I have a wealth of musical material, it was decided not to have a DJ. We will be getting decent speakers and I will be running everything from my laptop. Speaking of which, I have 8 versions of Hava Nagila just for the happy, happy day ;)
|Serious business, weddings.|
All in all progress was made, and Mousie and Darren seem quite happy with all the arrangements so far.
So those are the plans, so far. Dresses are being discussed. I want a charcoal dress. And I need two pairs of shoes, I decided. One pretty, high heel pair for the chapel, because I never wear high heels (I can't) and I never get the chance to buy such pretty shoes because I don't wear them. The second pair will be ballet flats in the same colour, for dancing. I just have to decide on the colour. I have decided that my sister will be wearing purple shoes, and she also needs a second paior for dancing. There are no clear wedding dress visions yet, we will be looking for the just right one.
There are a few exploratory shopping days planned for the near future, and I will be sure to keep y'all posted.
