Wedding Wednesday: Vol. 2

We have set a date- May 21, 2011.

The colors! I want our colors to represent who we are as a couple and our individual personalities.

The backstory! Ryan and I both graduated from Appalachian State University and had season football tickets. We just happened to have tickets next to each other and got to know each other throughout the 2008 football season. Our first date was to a cold, snowy football playoff game at our Alma Mater. It is only fitting then, that I have found inspiration in Appalachian's colors- black, white, and yellow.

The flowers! At this point I am thinking about using white daisies, yellow gerber daisies, and possibly white and yellow roses. I plan on making the bouquets and centerpieces myself. Both of those are just thoughts at the moment...

The cake! A friend from college, Jessica McGloin, has started a cake business in Durham, NC and I'm so inspired by her cake. I have posted a picture of her cake in my collage and I picture mine with black ribbon and fresh flowers all around.

An inspiration collage I made in Picasa:

Something a little bit scrappy: In order to keep up with lists and ideas, and to keep myself on track schedule wise, I created a wedding planner for myself.
I used the cover from an old planner...

Added pages and sections and bound it all together with my my Bind It All...

Printed of checklists from a wedding website...




So this will be where I keep all important things for my wedding- I love the Pink Paislee and how it goes with my wedding colors.

We are planning away and I get more excited each day!!!

Look at you all cute and organized. I was a total random mess and then, due to moving the wedding up 6 months because of a location cancellation I ended up planning the whole shebang in a months time. LOL! Your flower ideas sound great!
