Blog, day one....or, will anyone besides Lisa read this?

This title won over Lisa's favorite, "Scared Smithless."  I'll have to use that for something else - it really is a great play on words.  I've never blogged before but, since I have become an avid wedding blogaholic in the past few months, I thought I would give it a try.  

Matt and I are getting married four months from today on November 8th, and there's still a ton to do.  The big stuff - place, dress, etc. - has been done for ages, but we're getting into all the details now.  I think that this is the fun stuff!  But it really takes some time and creativity to pull it all together.  I want the wedding to be unique, creative, and  different - I don't want there to be anything cookie-cutter about it.  

Since this is my first post, I better provide some background information.  Our wedding is in November.  I'm thinking...a chic fall vibe.  A little eclectic, perhaps.  I have a bit of a leaf theme going on, and I'm also going with a variation on some cider mill themes - i.e., hot spiked cider at cocktail hour.  There's more to that theme, but I have to keep some surprises for the wedding day!  I'm My four wonderful, beautiful bridesmaids are wearing these fabulous dresses from J.Crew:

I love all of these dresses, and think that they will look as unique and beautiful as the girls wearing them.  I almost wish that I got to pick out a beautiful brown J.Crew dress, too!  Of course, then I remember that I get to wear an incredible wedding dress, and...well, I can't get into the details here, but...it's a real knock out.  

I think I'll wrap this up for tonight - I'll get into more details tomorrow.  Time to get cracking on the fun stuff!
