That song has been playing in my head ever sense My Darling and I sat down and discussed wedding dates. We did plan for a fall wedding, I've always wanted a fall wedding, so it was October 20, 2012! But then I got to thinking about an evening wedding and having the dancing and dinner go on into the night! Then I thought about how cold fall nights could get and I didn't want anyone to freeze so I asked Darling if we could move the date up... so we decided on... June 16, 2012.
Darling did ask me the other day if I would consider moving the date again to May because one of the grooms men lives out of state and another is in ROTC and may be leaving in June. So I'm considering it.
I do still want the wedding outside under the setting sun and have dinner under the stars and moon, and a fifties-ish style wedding.
I have always liked the 1950's. The dresses were just darling, and the make up was so out of the norm with the bright red lipstick and silly hair to go with it. But ever sense Darling has introduced me to Swing Dancing I've been in LOVE with the 50's!
I love the tea length dresses. Just long enough to be a wedding gown, but short enough to dance in and be comfortable. I'm still on the look out for one. I would it to be love at first sight with this dress. I want to see it on a website or store and just melt! I would love to be able to put it on and have it fit so right, that I wont need to alter it at all.
I love looking at ideas for 50's style outdoor weddings. There are so many ideas out there and I come up with my own all the time!

Now being engaged is not all I thought it would be either. There are a few times I just wish we were married already or not engaged at all. Those are the times I really have to sit down and pray, and listen to what God has to tell me. Right now in our engagement we need to see if we really are ready to get married. We should have done this before, but Darling kind of jumped the gun. (Maybe God wanted it this way?!) But all I know is that I love Darling with all of my heart, and even though we may fight at times or look unhappy, we do love each other.
When I start to feel like I'm second guessing being engaged, or whether we should get married or not, I look at the ring on my finger and pray. I pray for guidance, wisdom, patience, peace, and love to give as well as receive.
I'm trying to be patent with the planing. Sometimes I do feel rushed. But I have a year and four months to get the big things done, and then two months to get it all put together. So I have plenty of time. Time to enjoy telling every one the engagement story, time to browse the internet for vintage dresses, time to think and breathe! So much time!! Time to be with my darling and beloved and God!
But still, I can't wait to be married, run my own house, and live my own life with my beloved. God surly had a plan when I first met my darling, when we first started to date and hang out, and now He will have a new plan for our lives together.
God Bless our Lives and Love!
With Love, Prayers, and Blessings.
