I appreciate everyone's wonderful comments. You all are so sweet. I am so excited that I have this place to bounce my million and twelve wedding ideas off everyone.
I haven't talked to my Mom yet about the date, I think I am going to do that tonight so that way we can look at getting Save the Date cards ordered in December. I want everyone invited to have ample time to get good prices on their tickets and stuff. We should be able to reserve the hotel rooms at a decent rate since Prince Phillip works for them (fingers crossed).
I also want to get engagement pictures done sooner rather than later. I am thinking about possibly contacting someone to get them done maybe over labor day weekend. We (I) need to decide where I want to have the pictures done, I also need to decide what we're going to wear. I am thinking I want to head over to the beach to get them done...I'm just a beach girl. I got a beautiful teal dress for our trip that was supposed to be to Amelia Island in a couple of weeks, but we've decided to forgo that trip (that was where Prince Phillip actually intended on proposing to me). Anyways, so I was thinking maybe that teal dress and them him in linen kacki pants and then a white shirt...and there are a couple of other dress changes we are allowed; any ideas? Probably one of our outfits will be in Gator clothing...because we're GATORS! (Duh!) We are also looking at having the dogs in one of the sets. I love our dogs. (I love being able to say that). I love pictures, I want them now. :) I'll let you all know what the photographer I've contacted has to say.
What else...oh, color options anyone? I am thinking hot pink and teal--it's on the beach; however, I don't want it to be too girly. I think that with teal being the main color and then hot pink being an accent it wouldn't be too girly. Any thoughts?
Oh and lastly, what do you all think about doing a reception party afterwards? A lot of people who do destination weddings then come back and have a "we're married" party. Any thoughts? We're not going to do an engagement party or anything like that, I just feel weird asking people to come to parties but then not to the wedding, you know?
Ok, well all advice and input is greatly appreciated! :)
