This is the final year of engaged life for Jurie and myself. We have now started the wedding day countdown and have been very busy getting quotes and trying to decide who and where to book. Jurie has been put in charge of the cake, invitations and the honeymoon. We have set up a wedding website but as soon as we have all the details filled in we will put the link on Facebook to those who are invited.
We have our minds set on Lake Eland as our venue for a these reasons
1) The natural beauty will mean less decorations
2) The photos will be awesome
3) It's indoors with a balcony to view outside (in case of rain)
4) The nature (Which we don't get in Korea)
Lately I have been focused on what works best for both Jurie and my personality. Having said that Jurie is doing digital invitations, I like this idea it's inexpensive, convenient and new (Jurie is great with technology and I totally trust him) He is taking his tasks seriously and I am very proud of him.
The dress is the next big thing and I am going to have to buy it when I get home. It's very nerve wracking but it has to be done. I don't want to have to lug a dress from Korea to South Africa and I am not sure I trust warehouses on the Internet. Shoes I will be wearing my own shoes,I have cute green shoes that I will wear, I will not be in heels because I don't want to be taller than Jurie :)
Bridesmaid dresses, I am thinking of having my bridesmaids choose their own dresses or having it made. I have to see how things go.
Wedding favours: Because it is a morning wedding we thought the little pots of honey would be best.
Groom and groomsmen: Jurie already had a nice light green shirt that he can wear we just need to get him nice pants in South Africa. The groomsmen will have to find some light green shirts too.
Because it is a morning wedding it's very informal. That is exactly our personality, we are not fancy people and so this is best for us.
Photography: We are looking for a photographer at the moment and it's proving to be a little hard. We have had some quotes and we will see how it goes
As for music: All I can say is IPod play lists, all we need is background music as there will be no dancing.
Flowers: Thinking of seasonal flowers and at the moment I am inspired by wild flowers and arrangements that aren't fancy and staged
That is all I can think of at the moment...watch this space as the countdown begins
