Hey everyone, Marci is here - finally :)
 
As promised, here are some ideas and such on stuff I need to get started in my new home. The wedding is in just 2 months! Time is flying by - which is a good thing :) I'm so excited about marrying the man of my dreams, and starting a new home with him!

About my new home:

Location: To be determined. :) We will probably be renting an apartment or cottage somewhere, but of course I'm not sure what or where yet. 

Colors: Ok, so everyone keeps asking me: "what are your colors?" Well, honestly that's a hard question to answer. We probably won't be staying in the same apartment for more than a year. So i'll probably be working with white walls (which have to be that way when you leave so I'm not wasting money on painting) and not tons of space. So I don't really have specific colors to work with. Let me tell you what I do have.

I have an off-white couch. Its kind of old fashioned - a high back with wooden legs. I love it :) I have a coffee table too, inspired by Pinterest and built by Quintin :)

I have a white bedspread and Quin has a grey one. I registered for grey sheets and I'm hoping to find maybe some dark red or gold throw pillows for our room. I like simple, but with rich or bright accents. Bathroom colors are the same.

I have dinner settings for 8, in solid white. It was nice to know I already have dinnerware so I didn't have to worry about registering or buying that. Thanks Angi! Mom has a set of serving bowls she got from Sam's that I absolutely love. Multiple colors, but classy. I need serving dishes - preferably colored since I have white dishes. 
Another thing mom has used for years that I love are the kitchen towels from Sams and rags from Yoders. I will also need a bunch of cleaners, so I guess I'll put that on the list too :)
Probably going to need a kitchen rug, and front door rug - I'm not anticipating having anything resembling a mud room :)
I did register at Bed Bath and Beyond and Target for the rest of the stuff I need. Feel free to call or email me or Mom if you have any questions! :)

I'm getting so excited about the wedding :) I'm getting my dress back from alterations tomorrow... bridesmaids dresses are purchased, invitations going out this week, already started on some of the crafts we could do ahead of time, and we are starting work on our yard this weekend! We still have a lot of work to do, and I have several people I still need to talk to about helping out the day of, but over all I'm feeling good about our progress! 

Mom will keep you posted as much as we can without giving away all the surprises! 

Thank you to everyone who has already helped so much! Oh and THANK YOU SO MUCH to our amazing photographer, Amber Clem :) Didn't the pictures turn out awesome?
The setting on my ring is from the 1920's... only the prongs and the diamond are new. Quintin picked it out by himself :)
I love him so much, and I can't wait to be his wife.
