We are 402 days from the big day (that number makes me laugh, because seriously, why are we even talking about the wedding this far in advance?) and here is what I have come to learn.
I do not like unresolved things…
That date is so far away, and if I'm being honest I am not (at all) patient. I also like all ends to be tied up, and things to be decided, resolved, and stamped with the big red DONE stamp. That's just how I roll. I don't tend to linger on decisions forever. I don't tend to flip-flop. I might test out the water first, but if I get a toe in and the water feels ok, LET'S DIVE, BABY!
Well, the water feels OK, but now I have to wait 402 days to go diving…
So, because it may be a little early to be making decisions on the details, I am focusing my efforts on one thing I can accomplish for now, the colors. Anyone who knows me knows that this might be the most complex decision of the entire event. My favorite color is ROYGBIV, and that is to say that any color could potentially be my favorite on any given day or mood. Colors are important to me, always have been, and even though our "event" doesn't necessarily need to follow any rules, it still needs some guidelines… Internet, I could probably blow your mind with how much time I've spent analyzing this relatively unimportant topic…
Yellow is good, right? It's gotta be the happiest color that exists. It's the color of all great things, like… The sun… Bananas… Butter…. Daffodils… Smiley Faces…. And to me, it is the epitome of spring time. Plus, I just like saying the word MUSTARD.
Grey is good too. It just balances everything out. It's the color of life (because nothing is black & white.) It's the color of our cranky moods. It's the color of a dreary New England winter, just before spring time.
And, robins egg blue. Ok, let's be real for a second. Did you really think I was going to have a wedding without some form of this divine color popping into the mix somewhere? If so, you are uninvited.
Next step. Selling the color scheme to Jeff. It went a little something like this…
"Babe, what do you think of these colors?"
And just like that… DONE AND DONE.
(that's the closest to a red stamp that I've got at the moment.)
