A Very Important Question: Chocolate or Burgundy?

Word on the street is: I’m getting hitched!

Julie and I are beginning to plan a big, gay, Fall wedding, and I really need your help. So I was thinking… is it ok if, from time to time, I leave the important decisions to the blogosphere and just show up that day?

For example: accent color.

Do you think we should go with chocolate brown?

Hopefully my waist will look like this in about eight months. (See the pin: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/110830840802707171/)

Or maroon-y bungundy-y?

This is gorgeous, but aren’t callalilies a sign of death or something? (See the pin: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/110830840803523565/)

Let me know what you think in the comments, or if this is just a silly question and I’m already a crazy bridezilla.

Or you could tweet me about it #ballarckeFTW

Or if I see you on a regular basis you could just tell me.

  1. E- invitations are environmentally conscious but they are also a little tricky. People won’t feel the need to RSVP with them the same way they feel with a invitation they have to see everyday on the fridge. It’s the equivilant of a online relationship and a real deal relationship.

  2. Brown as you have more flower options and the burgundy call a lilies look like death to me. I also say farm out as many decisions as you can so long as they really don’t matter to your happiness. Kate
