10 - 9 - 2012

This New Year’s Eve is going to be the most special one I have ever celebrated in my entire life. Not only will I say goodbye to 2012 and ring in 2013 with all of my family and friends, I will marry the love of my life in an evening ceremony. I’m so excited to be doing a winter wedding and even more excited that it’ll be on NYE. There’s no better night of the year to party your face off, so why not add to that celebration and get hitched?

Wedding planning has gone really well so far. When you have a budget and a timeline, I find making decisions a bit easier. And the planning process is quite similar to what I do in my everyday job- project management. And the design process has been really fun. Is there such thing as a wedding “designer”? Pretty sure that career would be right up my alley. Choosing the colours, style, decor, etc. has also been quite similar to my design projects. You start with a concept and an inspiration board then work from there. Because it is a winter wedding, our colours are black, white, forest green with accents of gold. We are getting married at a beautiful local restaurant complete with ivy covered walls in the courtyard where the ceremony will be held. I think the colour palette and decor will work wonderfully in the space.

Next week, I’ll post my inspiration board for my “look”. I’ve scoured Pinterest for makeup, dresses, shoes, hair, the works. And I’m pretty close to narrowing it all down. Wish me luck in the next three months! It’s been such a whirlwind, I cannot wait to be married to the most wonderful man on the planet :)


P.S. Any wedding tips ladies?
