Wedding planning chaos.

This venue?! Or that venue?! This date or that date?! $$$$$$$$. Omg.
I wish I could win one of those wedding show thingymajiggys where the celebrity wedding planners just plan the wedding for you. So many decisions to make! DISLIKE!

At least..  I'm making some sort of progress.

What I'm working on now:
  •  booking our venue! (I've been stressing over this for the last 3 weeks. Every venue is just.. soooo over my budget! Really hoping that this venue in Carlsbad works out for me.) ( <-- *crosses fingers, I'll be checking it out this weekend with my mom & hopefully my sister since Allen's in New York =( 

  • our guest list.. it's looking like we'll be inviting roughly 125-150 people. YIKES!!!! >.<
  • our wedding party. Allen's pretty much done asking his groomsmen and I'm pretty close to finishing the final questions with my bridal party :] I have to be quiet honest though, it has been one heck of a hard decision. I mean I've moved over 10 times and have friends from all over.. who the HECK do I ask? Most of my friends are really distant from me now. I may have known them for over a decade but.. they just aren't on the same page as me. Makes me sad. But  I am really grateful that my sister & a few friends put it into perspective for me.. "The people you ask should be the people you want to celebrate the most important day of your life with".. not people I feel obligated to... not people who pretend to be close to me.. or people who come and go in my life.. It should be the people who phone/text bombed me as soon as they found out.... who screamed with joy to share the moment with me.. who practically cried with me! ::sigh:: Makes me feel a lot better =]. 
  • our photographer. BEYOND excited about my photographer!!!!!! I've asked Mel (labellemel) a good friend & a fellow Youtube/Blogger guru to do the honor of being Allen and I's photographer which she 100% didn't even hesitate with!! I'm soooooooooooo excited and thrilled  that she'll be with me on my wedding day!!! It gives me so much peace of mind since she's someone I know and trust! Her photos by the way are just jaw dropping. Eeeeeeee!! Can't wait! HOpefully she can come a little early so she can partyyyyy heartyyyyy with us!! (RIGHT MEL!?!?!?)  
I know you girls recognize her!! =] 
  • centerpieces. So I recently ordered 20 manzanita trees. I saw a few centerpieces online and was completely obsessed with them. Lol didn't even discuss it with anyone.. Hopefully they turn out well! It'll look similar to the one below except I'm gonna use trees that are a bit bigger, with white silk flowers that somewhat look like cherry blossoms! I plan to paint the middles of the flowers yellow so that they could incorporate my wedding colors!! (Grey, yellow & white). Of course lots of jewels, candles & instead of a vase, I'm probably going to put it in a very articulate wooden box. I'll probably paint the box grey with maybe a white or yellow ribbon? Thinking of putting stones on the bottom too since our venue is actually made of stone & wood! Not sure yet though =] WE'll SEEEEEEeeee!!

more manzanita centerpieces I'm in loveeeee with!! 
 Kind of like these two!!!!! Except white & yellow!! Don't you love it?! IIIIII LOveeeee itt <3

These are the flowers I wan't to put on the treeeeeee!! Holy cow.. it's going to be so much work though. It would be awesome if I could just get a craft party together to help!

  • wedding colors. definitely DEFINITELY grey, yellow & white!! The colors represent Allen & I to the Tee!! 

It brings such a modern/ chic feel to it right?! 

I love the idea that the girls are wearing yellow shoes! I was thinking yellow TOMS!! Since I loveeeeeeeeee toms! =] But we'll see.. Pumps are definitely cute. I just suck at wearing them! LOL.
Such a tomboy. ::sigh:: how did I ever become a Youtube guru?!?! 0_o I have no idea. lol.

  • bridesmaids dresses!!  I have my eye on a few!! What do you girls think? 
I like this color grey and definitely love the pockets on this dress! Even the length! I'm thinking for my sister (the matron of honor) I'll have her wear a long dress? Love the dresses at this site... 

Ehhh I think that's it!!!!!! For now at least. Jeez. 3 weeks of staying up late... and 6 hour/ day research... = just this much work!? Pathetic right?!?! 

I just hope it's making sense. I'm working for a modern/ chic wedding!

OH yeah and umm.. so I went to the wedding store.. and tried on the Vera Wang dress I plan to get.... LOL... 

Omg. =( I seriously have to lose the weight and PRONTO! LOl. I refuse to look at any other dresses... 

lol I wish you girls could've seen my face.. PURE EMBARRASSMENT!! I tried it on... for like... 2 seconds.. lol.. then threw it off LOL. 

Not stepping back into the store until I lose at least 30 pounds. YUP!!

Conclusion: Fred (My besty) and I are starting his diet tomorrow.. It's called the SLOW CARB DIET. LOL. Apparently I'm not allowed to have any rice, flour, bread, sugar, etc.etc.etc.

rofl. we'll see how that goes.
OH YES. I KNOW. IT'S BAD TO CUT OUT CARBS. AND YES. IT'S BAD TO GO ON A HARDCORE DIET. PLEASEEEEEEE save me the diet lectures though =( I've done them enough to know. LOL but at this point I'm willing to do whatever with whomever! =] 

Our goal for the week= -4 pounds!!

Okkkk girls till next time!!!!!


p.s. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE CONGRATULATION COMMENTS! It warms my heart to know how many people are sharing this moment with me! Because in all honesty, I really haven't shared it with many! I truly adore all of you!!

I couldn't envision the grey, yellow, white color scheme in your "I Said Yes" post, but this post really clears that up! I think those are fantastic colors that your wedding party will really shine in. :)

omg Jinah my now sister-in-law had her bridesmaids get dresses from Watters and her wedding colors were gray and mustard yellow... too funny! I don't know if you're looking for other ideas but for hers she let each bridesmaid choose a different style dress, but in the same color and fabric. She also let everyone bring their own shoes, in different styles and colors but in the same family (dusty, neutral-y colors). It sounds kind of funny on paper but the whole party looked great. Just a suggestion to maybe give you ideas! :) Congrats and I'm so happy for you!!!

if you are worried about money and stuff..
you can actually rent a wedding dress for a fraction of the price.
I mean you only wear it once, so you could keep that in mind.

You made a great choice on your wedding theme colors! It has a great sense of balance! It's not so loud and not so gloomy as well. Yellow, gray, and white mixed together helps to get you in a very happy mood for your wedding day!

I usually do not drop a ton of responses, but i did some searching and wound up here "Wedding planning chaos.".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if
it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything
new you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your community pages like your

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

I seldom leave a response, but I browsed some responses on "Wedding planning chaos.".

I do have a few questions for you if it's allright.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy
I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.
