So much has been done and still needs to be done.
A couple weeks ago I called the camp ground and asked if We could have June 16, 2012 booked for our wedding. The lady said Yes! So for $300. we get 10 hours (pretty much the whole day) and the whole camp to ourselves! I'm so excited! The night before the wedding party, our parents, my darling and I are going to go up, have a quick rehearsal, bring the decorating stuff and get the lodge cleaned up, so the next morning all we have to do is wake up, get there bright and early, set up, have a quick lunch, the girls and I will head out to get our hair done, the guys will do what ever they need to do, come back, get dressed, and get hitched by sun down!
Momma and I were brainstorming some food ideas the other day, and we came up with, A Pick Nick Dinner Reception! Some guests can bring a blanket or table cloth if they like, also a nice big pick nick style side dish. We will put the food in the lodge, and prop the doors open so guests can either eat inside at a table, out side at a table or on a nice blanket with candles and lights and flowers all around! It's going to be great! For drinks we will have homemade sun tea, sweetened, non sweetened, and sweetened with honey, coffee, champagne, sparkling cider, soda-pop, lemonade, and water. For dessert.... CAKE!(see further down to see why I'm so excited about the cake) Cup Cakes, (provided by my little sister/M.O.H.#1) A chocolate fountain with fruit and maybe some mini cakes to dip, (chocolate fountain provided by my older sister/M.O.H.#2) And maybe some sugar cookies cut out and decorated to look like a bride and groom, (maybe all of my brides maids/M.O.H'S. can help make them! along with some friends!) Momma said she would cover the main dish and catering if we choose to cater. She has been calling around and asking for some prices. :)
For the Cake!
For the cake, my darling works in a cafeteria at the college he graduated from, and is friends with the ladies who work in the bakery. He said they did his boss' daughters wedding cake and it was beautiful and didn't cost much at all. So the night before last I drew up a sketch of my ideal wedding cake (very simple with little detail but still so pretty!) and yesterday at lunch I took it in and showed one of the ladies. She said it could be done, that she will talk to another lady about price and get back with my darling either today or tomorrow! I'm so very happy.
The decoration will be very DIY, home made, cozy, and just right! Here are some pictures I got off of Pinterest......My wedding Pinterest Board......

I'm getting so very excited again. When my Darling first asked me to Marrie him I was SUPER excited, then I kind of mellowed out for a bit got my head straight, started writing down ideas, Then got SUPER excited again! Then kind of just chilled during the holidays and took things easy just kept my head on the holidays, and fiances and everything. Now I'm SUPER EXCITED AGAIN! It's all coming together so nicely and it's really becoming Real! I mean...

Now is the time I should start calling my BM's and ask them to help out any way they can. :) I can't wait to tell you more about the wedding plans, and then the actual Wedding it's self! There will be so many photos and things to show you and tell you. :) SIGH!!!!!! This is really happening. I'm getting married and I'm so excited about it. I'm going to wear a 1950's vintage wedding dress. My Darling will get to see me walk down the aisle (row of chairs) then WE will take our Vows Before our closest friends and family and God and become Husband and Wife. We will start our lives together. Start a family. :) It's just so wonderful.... I truly am Blessed to have such a great hard working man in my life.
