Creativity...can make you nuts!


I think I am getting ahead of myself with all this wedding planning. It is quite obsessive...I work, eat and sleep wedding invitations, save the date cards, favors! OY! I have dreams about colors and paper and ribbons.  I love all this stuff and being creative is very fulfilling to me....unfortunately it does not go well with my obsessive nature which wants me to have it all done immediately.  

I am currently working on invitations and save the date. I designed a save the date which is cute and Juliano loved - of course - but it is not exactly what I see in my head. I want to make sure it doesn't look cheap. At the same time, I want it to be cheap.

Paper - I think I am going to embark on a few wedding projects.  I want to make flower seed paper which we can use as favors... plant it and watch the love grow. I may also be able to use is as part of the invitation pieces. It will be a lot of work because of the sheer number of invitations that need to be made. Call it a labor of love I guess.

Veil - I really want to make my own veil and incorporate the veil my sister used in her wedding.  It was made from my grandmother's veil cap, which my aunt also wore and lace from my great grandmother's veil.  I may have two veils, one on top of the other. I found a great pattern for hand made veils.  I think it is a nice thing to have and pass on.

Invitations - We are putting together our invitations ourselves...not from a kit but by scratch. It is puzzling trying to put all the pieces together and find what goes with what but it is also gratifying.  I have found some interesting paper, pocket and envelope places online. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for decently prices pieces to put together a wedding stationary set.

Thats it for now. Off to build a mock invitation.

Well, it is official



After an extensive search and many site visits and budget wrangling, we have decided on June 27, 2010 at the Commander's Mansion in Watertown. It is a beautiful mansion with a tent and grape arbor. It is easy to get to and has the feel we are going for! We are all about ambience and we loved this place the moment we saw it. Our goal now it to tailor the vision for our day around it!

We are so happy that it is out of the way cause it was majorly stressful.

Glad we really like each other.

Sangria it is!


Well we have decided on a theme of sorts...Sangria. On our first date, Juliano and I had a few pitchers full, we love the color, the taste and fruit. It seems a perfect match for is a little sassy and vibrant with a little kick.

Here is a picture of sangria which looks luscious.

I envision a nice light blue glass pitcher, some oranges, lemons and limes thrown around for a nice fruity image. Light breezy and summer!

We like it.

Planning planning and more planning!

So we are in the stages of planning hell for the greatest day of our lives....ok not hell but similar. I am one who goes at something hard and quick and so I want all this done now. Why? So I can sit and wait and think about all the things that might go wrong. Its all true. Plus we want to do it all ourselves and have a hand it all the little pieces.

We have decided that our wedding gift registry will primarily include things for our honeymoon/trip. I am SO HAPPY Juliano asked me to marry him and I am very excited to be him wife. BUT it puts a slight kaibash on our plan to drive to Brazil so why not use one for the other? Between the two of us we have tons of things already. Plus, since we are planning a long trip and probably getting rid of much of our stuff, not sure how much sense it makes to get lots of new stuff. So by deduction, we will register for stuff we will really use.

This is what I say NOW, but my mom and sister say Get really good towels and sheets. And I want people to feel like they can give us whatever they feel that want to give or even nothing at all.

Damn, it IS all about everyone else. Crap.
