Welcome to August Vows

This blog started a year before the big day, and chronicled the wedding-planning from a bride's perspective. I considered closing it and starting a new one as a Mrs., but you know... our vows were the most important part of the day, and will be our backbone as we develop a life and family together. I can't think of anything more appropriate than continuing to call my blog August Vows, and so it's here to stay.

The "Negative Anniversary"

Before I say anything else, an entry today would be entirely incomplete without wishing my grandparents a very happy 55th anniversary. We'll be getting married on their 56th next year, and I don't think I could possibly think of a better date.

This morning, my father pointed out that today is our "negative one" anniversary. He's right of course, so the official countdown begins!

So, where are we as of today? We have a venue booked, our bridal party set, and a vague guest list. We've talked about roughly 4000 ideas, and need to start narrowing it down. We finally have a good picture of the two of us, and we've talked to a couple photographers. I've tried on a few dresses, and want to try on a whole bunch more.

Beyond that, we're basically acutely aware that this year is going to go by in no time, and thank you for joining us.
