New venue, new date, new everything...well almost anyway.

Okay, a lot has happened since I last posted.  We now have a new venue.  We have chosen The Sand Plum at the Victor Building in Guthrie, OK.  Also, we have a new date, May 29, 2010.  Kris and I were going to go see The Dominion House and we figured that while we were already in Guthrie, we would look at the Sand Plum as well.  We went to the Sand Plum first, fell in love, and the Dominion House couldn't compare. 

I'm way more excited about this place than I ever was about stupid Coles Garden.  We are still crossing our fingers that we get our deposit back.

On a lighter note, my dress is here!!!!!!!  I only need to add a bustle, get it hemmed, and one other thing, otherwise it fits like a glove. 

And, I went and added a whole lot of stuff to the website....

Venues and Snuggies

Going to see the Sand Plum and Dominion House today, Dominion House has May 22 open as of two days ago.  Crossing fingers...  On a lighter note, to make me feel better about all the wedding crap Kris went and bought me a Breast Cancer Awareness Snuggie.  Photos to follow.  And, we are doing the Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday!

Oh My God, I don't even know where to start.

I got a letter in the mail the other day that Coles Garden sent saying, sorry they are going into forclosure and will not be able to host our wedding.  Isn't that just amazing!  Our wedding is in 6 months!  We now have 6 months to find a new place which I have realized is impossible since I have called all the alternative places to no avail.


A. Dominion House
B. Chesapeake Boat House
C. Sand Plum
D. Tres Suenos
E. Some Lady's Backyard
F. Oklahoma Heritage Museum

Option A. is the best with E. being the last resort.  Option B. is a little small, but awesome.  C. wouldn't be an outside wedding,  D. would be cool, but it is Oklahoma wine, and F. is a little pricey.  I'm a little stressed and I almost never get stressed out, because I planned this stupid thing a year ago!!  AAAACK.  Okay, breathe.  The Dominion House at least has May 22 open for the moment.  And, I have been to a wedding there, Melanie's, she sent me a message saying they were great, although the backup plan for rain wasn't pretty it was stress free.  And, I imagine they are the same price a stupid Coles Garden.  Well, at least, I hadn't gotten the flowers or the hotel or our honeymoon yet.  Thank God.

back from KC and first present

Back from KC.  We had so much fun!  Went the the big art fair they have every year, went to a real farmers market, had some awesome BBQ, and had some great times with friends. 

We also received our first wedding gift off of the registry from our friends Erin and Dan.  Love it, can't wait to use it at my famous Christmas Tea Party.  Thank you also to Martha Stewart, how I love thee as well.  Erin said anyone else registering for a teapot would be ridiculous, but for you, we bought it, ha.

If I won the lottery today I would open up a tea shop, sigh.

Oh, and this is Erin, one of my bridesmaids.

We may have been slightly inebriated at this moment, but she lives in KC so we don't see each other very often and don't have many photos, and need to work on this.
