I told you yesterday that I would try to get you up to date on Ashley's wedding plans. Well, let's see...
Ashley and John have confirmed the date of November 7th. That worked out best with Ashley's teaching schedule since it will be close to fall break. Plus that weekend this past fall was absolutely gorgeous, so I'm hoping it will be just as pretty next year on that same weekend!
Since it is a fall wedding, she is looking at all the beautiful fall colors to use in the wedding for dresses and flowers, but all those choices haven't been made yet. She has really been focusing mostly on getting a reception location nailed down and I think she found a place today!
There was a Bridal Show downtown today and she went with Laura and Lindy and one of her good friends, Michelle.
They had so many ideas there and she took lots of pictures and got tons of information on everything from cakes to invitations to bands to photographers. But while she was down there, she looked at this location. It's called The Atrium and it looks really pretty when it is decorated for a wedding reception. We would have the wedding at our church, then go downtown for the reception.
She loved it and I think she is calling tomorrow to get it reserved.
This is one of the cakes she saw today at the Bridal Show and really liked (the one in the middle).
This is alot like what she wants so she got the name and number of this bakery so she can call for more information.
There is still alot to do, but Ashley is very organized. She's got ideas in mind for invitations and centerpieces and dresses, etc. Even though there is so much to do, we still have plenty of time, so I don't want her to get stressed out. She is a very busy girl right now with her student teaching. We will just take it one day at a time!
