I get email updates from theknot.com, I think they are every week and the other day I received one that had a list of all the "in-things" for 2012 and as far as I can remember I pretty much ticked about 5/6 of those boxes. BUT...
...Annoyingly enough I cannot seem to find the email that I received the article on AND I can't seem to find where it would be on the website so I'm afraid you're just going to have to take my word for it.
One of the 'in things' for this year is apparently having your reception in the same place as you are having your ceremony, well CHECK on that. We are having them in the same place and there are quite a few good reasons for this, 1 being that obviously it is cheaper having the Reception and Ceremony in the same place and two, we don't have to send people extra information detailing how to get to the chapel and the Reception afterwards - this means less paper being printed AND less money being used - we're all for using less money around here.
It also said another trend being set for this year is light and airy feel to your Reception which is really what I am trying to go for with the ideas that I have. It said to use water colours for the wedding so to me that means light and airy, right? So yay!
I am a little happily surprised that for once I seem to be 'in fashion' or 'in trend', for those of you that know me I tend to just go with the flow when it comes to what I am wearing. I like to be comfortable and I just like what I like. Am I still classed as being 'in fashion' if I just accidentally follow the trend that seems to be going on?
On another note, tomorrow Adam says we are going to go look at pretty wedding rings! We are helping one of his ushers go get sized for his suit and then we are going to be chillaxing in the evening. Sounds like a good weekend to me. Hope you all have a good weekend too!
