Day 18- My Future Wedding

OK! So I've had an incredibly busy week so I haven't had much time to blog. Here's a couple previews of my upcoming wedding.

Jon and I have decided on October of 2012 for the wedding. This will give our family and friends from the east coast an opportunity to save up some money to fly out and spend some time with us in paradise. We are also pretty set on having our wedding at Waimea Valley. If any of you ever make a trip out to Hawaii, Waimea Valley should definitely be on your list of places to see. Here's some pictures of Waimea.

I have two ideas in terms of color scheme for the wedding. One idea is to do silver and sea green. However since the wedding is in the fall I was also thinking it might me nice to do a fall color scheme, like reds, oranges, etc. Then where they have the wedding ceremony, instead of doing flowers on the ground I could do some fall colored leaves on the ground. I don't know, still working that out.

One thing I need to convince my wonderful fiance is that I should make our wedding cake. I really would like to make it because the average cost of a wedding cake is $543. That's ridiculous. I could make my own for like $50. I'd rather be able to put more money into an open bar, or extra food for my guests at the reception. We'll see if I win the argument. :)

We know we want to have a traditional Hawaiian musician or band during the cocktail hour but then a DJ for the reception.

We still have a couple years before the wedding, so I'll try to keep you guys updated as pieces start falling together. For now, this is what we've started discussing and settling on. Jon and I are both incredibly indecisive so who knows what's going to happen! :)
