What A Week!

As I have mentioned before, this week has been super crazy but wonderful.  On Tuesday, I went to try on wedding dresses with Laurel, my Maid of Honor, and Aaron's Mom.  They were the best shopping buddies imaginable and were so supportive.  I had such a great afternoon with them and think I may have found the dress of my dreams! YAY!!!  However, I am going to hold off on purchasing a dress until I get back from my appointment at the Monique Lhuillier flagship salon in LA in a few weeks.  I definitely want to try and get a post up of the potential dresses and styles that I'm loving in the next week for all of you to see.

I guess you're also wondering why things have been so hectic around here.  Well, we decided to move the wedding up to November instead of October 2012!  So while I have been operating under the assumption that I have over a year to plan, I now am faced with the reality of only having three months!  It was a crazy, last minute decision that Aaron and I felt had to be made for personal reasons.  I have a ton of fear, anxiety, and stress about things not going the way I originally had planned but I do think we're making the right decision for us. Our planner, Kristin Newman, is on board and luckily, so are the rest of our vendors.  I mean, what are the odds that the photographer, videographer, florist, and caterer are all on board with this huge change of plans?  Its been such a blessing.  Now all we need to figure out is the venue and official date.  I am so excited and can't wait to update you guys with all of the news in the next few weeks.

did I mention we got a new camera??? so excited !!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend also!  I would love to hear if you had any big changes in your wedding plans, how you dealt with it, and/or any advice!

Oh boy-what a brave girl you are! I'm sure the next three months will be hectic, but the two of you have such terrific style that no matter what, this celebration is going to be stunning. I can't wait to hear about the Monique Lhuillier visit, and the real dress!
