plans....plans....plans....8.8.08

In one weeks time I feel like Dave and I have made a lot of progress with the wedding plans. I guess I just don't want to feel so busy all summer long so we decided to make some decisions and get the planning under way....guess we had to considering the first decision was to get married in August! The date is officially 8.8.08, Dave won't have an excuse to not remember that one! So far we've set the date, selected The Ravines Golf Course for the wedding and reception, decided that the reception will be dessert and cocktails only (which is why the wedding won't start until at least 7:30), lined up someone to handle sound for the outdoor wedding, picked out paper for the invitations (Dave has now knows what's inside Michaels craft store), and yesterday I bought my wedding dress! Danee and I decided to go looking and I found it. It's not something I would have ever expected to pick out but my sister and the others in the store at the time all had the same thought when I had it on along with the veil...it was "the" dress. Of course I had to take it to my mom's as soon as she was home from work. My sister had pictures on her camera of me trying on most of the dresses and my mom picked the right dress before she knew which one I had bought, guess that's a good sign. We're working on soloist (hopefully Brad Koning can), DJ and photographer yet if anyone has any suggestions???
