Tower Grove is so beautiful. We have spent a lot of time with family in this park. Since the ceremony is outside we will conduct the sand ceremony instead of the unity candle. It consist of pouring sand in the a vessel in stead of lighting candles.

So much to choose from. It is so exciting to plan this wedding. When I show my ideas to some people they are like "what???) Basically Im taking ideas from the pictures I see. My center pieces will consist of branches that will have a crsystalled affect along with strings of small beads and larger glass crsytals surrounding them. This will be placed in a clear vase with long peocock feathers sprouting through the branches. The vase will sit on top of a mirrored tile with hydrangeas petals at the base. So Hydrangeas and peocock feathers. I hope to jump a peocock feathered broom, my groom will post a peocock feather with pieces of hydrangeas instead of a rose, the base of my rose and hydrangea bouquet will have several feathers as well. I hope to be able to include chair sashes and on the back of every other chair will hopefully be a peocock feather tucked in the sashing. The candy buffet is a big piece to the reception and I hope it looks as a appealling as I am hope. The wedding ceremony will be out doors. Flower petals, asion unbrellas and simply simply simple.

Forest Park Jewel Box. This is the location we me and Damon First Discussed having a wedding. We love going to forest park, the zoo, boathouse, The Muny, the Art Muesum.. We have been to Forest Park many many times. (there are many ways to have inexpensive days outdoors). On Valentines Day we went to our favorite resturuant in the West End and then went for a walk in the park. We walked down this walk way and he talked about how this was the place were we held our first discussions about marriage and weddings. Once we came to the front of the Jewel Box.... knee, ring, yes!

One thing that I beleive when it comes to findng the dress, is remember your body (and be kind to it) I hope to accent my body's postive points with this dress. Howevr, I still purchased the dress smaller than my current dress size. I have to work hard to ensure I will fit in this dress well.
