Wedding Planning (not mine :)
Every second Friday we get together with a bunch of our couple friends. This past Friday was one of those nights and we had so much fun! As usual we all sit around, visit, eat and play games. So many of the couples were able to come this week and it was great to catch up with them. There's usually around seven couples that come, we all bring appetizers and games and then spend the evening having a good visit. This week the guys split off and played their own game of...not sure, something to do with cards, loud yells and slapping. So by the time us girls had finished our multiple rounds of Pit, we headed into another room to chat. It was great to see what they had been up to and just chat about girlie things.
Krystal started telling us about her wedding plans and said how she wasn't sure about decorating the reception hall. She wanted to be creative but was finding it hard to think of original things. Jana, who got married several months ago, looked at her and said "Get Katie to help you, she's amazing" (thanks Jana!!).
I had been in charge of decorating Jana's reception hall and loved every minute of it. I volunteered for the position and knew that it didn't involve money, but I didn't mind. It was exactly what I needed to fill some time and to be creative. Besides that, Jana's colors were exactly what mine had been, so it was easier to come up with ideas although they weren't things I had used.
I can't wait to start on Krystal's wedding planning! It's only three months away, but I already have tons of ideas. Her colors are maroon, beige and sage green. I don't know if I'll be helping her actually decorate but I'll be able to help her with ideas. I think that in the end, Jana's reception decoration cost her $75.00 so cost shouldn't be a problem (: I'm good at keeping it down.
Oh, the pictures above are of Jana's wedding. So proud!!
