You may have heard it through the grapevine...

That Frikken Duckie is frikken engaged!  Yes, it's true.  It was while we were still on vacation in Hawaii when he proposed.  I was pretty excited then and I'm still pretty excited about it now!

Now, I'm not really one of those obsessive event bloggers - you know, the ones that constantly post about their wedding from their engagement until after their honeymoon and then a few weeks later, they're pregnant and all you see is pregnancy posts.  While those blogs are fun to follow for a little inspiration here and there, it kinda gets to be too much for me after a while.

That being said, I hereby vow to only write ONE wedding related post per week at the most.  Since I haven't really been posting consistently lately anyway, it may not even be that often.  I'm still working on the "posting consistently" part.

So, as far as "the big day" goes, we haven't really done much planning.  No date has been set, no guest list has been drafted.  As of right now, we're still at the dreaming phase.  We're figuring out all our "wants" to see what is do-able.

I've kind of got my color palette together (light pinks and nudes), and I already know what I want my bridesmaid dresses to look like.  Since the ceremony will be in a church during the day and the reception to be held outdoors in the evening, I've decided to go with a simple and light maxi dress.

I love the look of this dress!  With the bridesmaids I have in mind, this shape will flatter all of them.  Can't go wrong with an empire waist!

This neckline is gorgeous!  I really like that this dress doesn't have a cinched-in waistline because I do plan to add a beaded belt to add a little sparkle to the dresses - and if you know me, you know I need a little sparkle in everything!

So what do you think?  Would you wear these if you were my bridesmaid?  What would/did your bridesmaids wear at your wedding?

  8. CONGRATULATIONS FRIEND!!

    So happy for you =)

    Those dresses are gorgeous. My bridesmaids each got to pick their own dress, I chose the color. That way they were able to pick out a shape that flattered them and they were the most comfortable with. Each one was unique.

    Have fun with the wedding planning!
