Wedding plans already in the making

Hi Everyone!This is Chrissy! These last few weeks since coming home from Virgina have been very busy planning for our wedding. Things are already coming together! My Mother and I have booked the site where our wedding reception will be taking place and have chosen the menu selection. Bridesmaids dresses have been a burden, but, I think we have it narrowed down to the one. I will be having a Matron-of-honor and two Bridesmaids. They are very special to me and it is a true blessing that they are willing and able to be in the wedding! :)
This weekend I have managed to discuss the music which will be taking place during the ceremony .With much help from our faithful church organist and music coordinator Becca, we were able to pick out several music arrangements in which she played for me. A.J. and I are working together in asking soloists to sing songs that mean the most to us and that is going very well. I was also able to arrange someone to take our wedding pictures and when A.J. comes to Ct. we will discuss our pictures further with them.
Many of you already know, I also managed to buy a gown. After loving a certain gown to only find out it came in the color ivory and not in white, I was able to find the most perfect dress . After my Mother gave me WONDERFUL words of encouragement , I decided to take her advice and went to the Bridal Mall in Niantic. I was adamant and determined I would never find a gown that had similar expectations of the first gown. My intention was to browse only and not to buy at the Bridal Mall, so with that... I decided not to make an appointment to try on dresses. My Mother and I walked around and found two dresses and they managed to fit me in, in between appointments. The First dress I put on was very pretty, but not anything I was looking for. The moment I put the second dress on I immediately forgot about any dress that I may have considered or tried on before this point. Needless to say, I bought the dress!!!! But unfortunately, you will all have to wait and see on June 6, :).
