I have 2 months and 17 days until I become Mrs. Kim Murphy.
And it is crunch time.
My wedding theme is Beauty and the Beast. My colors are red and gold and there is alot of italian infulences intertwined. My budget is about $6,000.
So this being the Gibson Girls forum and my theme is Disney I thought I might share details of my wedding, and kind of de-stress through all the madness.
bought my dress
picked a venue and cermony site
have a menu picked out
got a florist
found a DJ
What I need:
hair style (for me and bridesmaids)
I start school agian starting Monday and I also work two jobs, so to throw all this together in 2 more months will be crazy.
Any advice or ideas are more than welcome!
I want to incorprate hints of the Disney theme with out it being over bearing.
Each day I will write down what I got accomplished and what I plan to do next, so I hope I can get through this until Novemeber 13th!!!!!
So today will be a recap of whats going on so far:
My dress: (ofcourse this can be a surprise still!)
I wanted a Belle feel to it and with the Gold and the skirt really got me thinking of her dress
My reception hall:
The room is wall to wall with these very large windows and red velet drapes. There are three similar chandleliers. And its all wooden floors.
My ideas for centerpieces:
2 types of pasta
(penne and angel hair)
(maranara and a monray- a very cheesey white sauce)
Meatballs or italian sasgue
ranch or itialian dressing
Italian cream sodas, tea, water, coffe, soda
Itialian wedding cookies
Varitey of Olives, dried meats (pepperoni, salimi, capicola), breads
about $18.00 a person
Our first dance:
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dOCbI4AUJ8"]YouTube - Beauty & The Beast OST - Death Of The Beast[/ame]
I like this song becuase it just sounds so beautiful. My friends are on an award winning dance team and agreeed to cherograph the dance so it looks professional. Me and my fiance dance all the time at our house, so Im sure well pick up on it easily.
Whats next in store:
Tomorrow I am meeting with my cake lady to discuss my wedding cake. I want it elegant but yet agian another representation on my theme. Any ideas on what we can do?
Also I am paying a deposit on the DJ today and need a list of songs to play at a wedding.... I have no idea except the 30 songs me and my future hubby would like to hear and our recpetion will be 4 hours long.
