I dont know how to explain it, but I go through phases where Im attracted to certain colors. I went through a turquoise phase a few months ago, now Im back to red. I wish I could have a red wedding dress, instead maybe I will wear some shiny red rockabilly style heels with dark red lipstick and have lots of red roses, and red lanterns hanging throughout, we can light our red candles and let all the lights reflect off the pool, we can sip red wine as we listen to cool music and just eat, drink and be merry.

It's exactly what I wanted. I love it, I'm getting so excited now. I know marriage is just a piece of paper, but its the idea of the ceremony and being surrounded by all the people we love. It's just so beautiful and touching and I am actually getting teary-eyed just thinking about it. I'm not even a teary-eyed type of girl but this means so much to me and I love Tom with all my heart and nothing has felt this right for me. It is one of the few decisions that I have made without second guessing myself.
I love you Tom!!!!!!!! I cant wait to be Mrs. Murlless!!!

I swore I wouldn't marry again, but my feelings changed once I believed that a marriage doesn't always have to end in divorce. Now that our date is approaching, I'm getting anxious and excited. The wedding theme we chose was inspired by Toms Asian roots. So we are having Vietnamese food that his mom is going to help cook, fortune cookies, little pink take-out boxes to hold candy from our candy buffet and pretty pink tea light holders as gifts for our guests. My next step is to find the dress. I know what I want, I just cant find it yet. I want a vintage white mod Audrey Hepburn style dress. I may just try to find a pattern and pay someone to make it. If only I was domestic and knew how to sew, I could find all sorts of vintage dress patterns and sell them on Etsy. Oh well, I'm still young and have time to learn these things.
|Perfect, I just need it in white.|
|Water bottles with our names on it, along with the date|
|Cherry blossom labels for our take-out boxes|
|The fortunes say "Til death do us part" on half, and the other half has Tom and Steph with the date|
|candles in pretty little bags for the guests.|
|The parasol I got in China Town gives me inspiration.|
