This weekend I was chatting with my sister and MOH, about my bridal shower/bach party. She asked me to give her some ideas because she wanted it to be really fab and special. I thought about it for a few moments and then stated that I didn't want one. Crazy right? I told her if she really wanted to do something for me, then buy me my wedding shoes. She was ecstatic! I have to admit that I was too because:
1. I wouldn't have to buy my beloved Loubous.
2. I didn't want to put any unnecessary burden or stress on her trying to figure out what I would like to do, eat, etc.
I feel good about my decision. Less hoopla all the way around..just the way I like it.
Next up was my decision to not have the wedding ceremony at 620 Loft and Garden. While it's really a breathtaking place... we've decided that we want our ceremony in a church. I felt a sense of calm once we made that choice. The church that we're considering and hope can accommodate us is, Grace Church, on Broadway. I love everything about it. Also, a historical tidbit - Calvert Vaux, co-designer of Central Park, landscaped the garden.
The thought of walking down this aisle, to wed the man of my dreams, makes my heart smile and dance a jig! I can't wait to marry my Treasure.

Another factor in the decision, while not terribly very important, was the logistics of changing the ceremony to the cocktail and lounge area. I didn't want my guest to see all of that. To me, it seems uncomfortable.
