On the Edge

I am standing right at the edge of the wedding hole trying really hard not to fall in.  Like right there

Case in point, I haven't chosen a dress yet but I bought these silver glitter pumps to wear on the big day.  Does that make any sense to you?  Yeah, me neither.  I don't think I've ever worn anything made of silver glitter before in my life!  Of course I can justify all of this by pointing out that they are on sale and extremely reasonably priced.  (A quick tip - if you buy a pair of these shoes buy them a size up.  Per the reviews, the shoes seem to be sized on the smaller end of things.)

Aside from trying to corral the inspiration for our wedding down to a few elements and colors while also crafting like a mad woman during whatever time I can find, I've been gearing up for my classes to start and have made several appointments for this weekend's trip back to Columbus.  Jon and I have a lot of the big things already taken care of for the wedding (venue, caterers, and photographer).  This weekend we'll be buying the wedding dress, figuring out the cakes/desserts, setting a plan for the flowers, and meeting with my friend who will be marrying us.  Somewhere in there we'll be hanging out with my family, celebrating my younger brother's 30th (holy crap) birthday, and squeezing in a couple visits with friends. 

I'm hoping to have this all pretty much taken care of by the time I get back to Brooklyn so that I will be able to focus on school and to ignore the wedding design porn that has been filling my head and computer cache for the last few weeks.

Damn that wedding hole.  Damn damn damn. 

Once you start looking it's so hard to stop.


  1. Embrace the wedding hole!! You only get to do it once. And those shoes are SO FUN.

  2. Ha ha! The wedding hole is definitely easy to embrace but causes a lot of stress for me. Small doses have been the key. And thanks for the compliment on the shoes! I think they'll work out just fine.
