I don’t know if many of you know this about me, but I absolutely HATE the color green. Look through your photos of me that you’ve taken with me… you will never see me wearing green. It just does not happen. For some reason or another, I hate the color of grass, leaves, whatever. I like minty green or bright green in moderation, but I truly hate the color green. So imagine my dismay when the newsletter I look forward to EVERY DAY (it counts down to my wannabe wedding date and gives me GREAT wedding tips) is titled “Color Palette: Green” I about vomited when I saw that. EW. Green. Green. YUCK.
So, to all my wedding guests, you will not see green (except in leaves and flower stems). To my bridesmaids: when we get together Thursday, I won’t make you wear green, don’t worry. I like turquoise, and varying shades of green, but no green please. EEEK
Apparently green has lots of positive symbolism, but honestly, green… no. Read the article here: http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/wedding-palette-green
Also!! The wedding dress I love and have seen photos of online has a contrast effect with olive green so I have to tell my dress maker to change it to all one color of the main color I want (secret secret). I think I am going to order my dress soon so that my little brother can bring it with him in December. I also plan on having my invitation cards made by December too because I’ll send them out three months before the wedding (March/April). I think we should order the bridesmaids dresses soon too (they would only take a month to make) so that they are here by December too. Or else those can wait til June. I don’t mind either way. I think maybe I’d wait til spring and have my outfit delivered in June just to see what the latest Pakistani fashion is, but I think the style I’ve had my eye on is here to stay til next June I hope!
I have so much to decide on!! I think I am just going to go with the color scheme I keep going back to and just eenie-meenie-miney-mo my dress because I love em both (that’s a joke, I will talk to my girls and choose it that way!). I am also SUPER PISSED because the designer I want to use is not returning my e-mails and he is booked months in advanced and I’m not sure I’ll get my dream designer gown! 😦 He is great at playing with colors and I love that about him. Lucky for me, the boutique I use is fabulous and will create something lovely I’m sure. Just no Nomi Ansari gown. *sigh*
anyways we’ll see! SO much to do and I would love to get it done sooner than later! June will creep on me like nothing!
also trying to decide on whether or not I should hire a wedding planner…. ahh
Congratulations Sidra! Please keep up with this blog. I would love to keep up with all the wedding planning. I’m so happy and excited for you! I know your wedding will be absolutely beautiful.
