Wedding Colors!

 We I picked out our wedding colors!! It was a little bit of a challenge since we were originally wanting a fall wedding, I've always wanted a fall wedding, preferably in October since thats my favorite month...But with how the weather has been down here in Florida, we decided that an end of winter wedding would be best! SO, I had to completely switch gears from an orange and gray wedding suitable for fall, and find a beautiful wintery pallet for February! I decided on Marine Blue, Yellow and gray-and Ryan agreed on the colors YAY!
Here is another color pallet that shows our colors pretty decently. I am excited to have the colors picked out! With having the colors decided, it gives us tons of open doors to plan what comes next!

Also, side note, I have been busy designing save the dates and invitations in Photoshop! I will post a preview of them soon!!

The Website!

Ryan and I have been busy pouring over wedding things online. I can't help it!! Can you blame me? Seriously, can you? The first thing I did was setup an account on The Knot , which has been an enormous help...and also an enormous discouragement. It shows me a ton of wedding vendors in my area...and it shows me the LONGGGGGGG list of things I need to do! I tend to click really fast past that page.

One of the best features of being a member of The Knot, is my free wedding website that I got to set up!! I plan to put our website on the bottom of our invitations and have guests rsvp through it! Having guests RSVP through the website will save us me a TON of money on invitations, because there will be no need for RSVP cards! And that lady and gentlemen is how I cut corners.

I have been busy working on the invitations too...and I would show them in this post, but I think I will save that for the next one! If you know us in real life, feel free to fb me for our wedding website link!!!
