Well 2014 is here and wedding planning is in full swing. Honestly, I don't know how everyone makes it look so easy. I have been eaten alive by wedding planning. I pretty much go to work, and then come home and work on the wedding. And sometimes on the way home I spend 45 minutes talking to my family or vendors about the wedding.

It's a lot but so far I'm having fun. To be candid, I don't think I'm very good at making decisions. I tend to go back and forth a lot which is not helping my planning work load. Hah! Josh and I have made some solid progress though and he is a huge help and really wants to be involved which I just love. It is our wedding after all.

Major things we have done:
  • Booked a reception venue
  • Put two churches on hold
  • Booked a DJ
  • Booked a Photographer
  • Met with one florist
  • Scheduled a meeting with another florist
  • Narrowed down the bridesmaid dresses
  • Started our Save-the-Dates
  • Picked wedding colors
Picking our colors was actually a hilarious process. Josh and his sister Hannah (one of the bridesmaids) were over last week for dinner. Picture me in sweat pants and the two of them looking normal, all sitting on the couch, and going through hundreds of Pantone colors. We had my laptop hooked up to my TV and so it was hilarious. We were all screaming at the TV and had some pretty funny reactions. Some colors were a definite "NO" others had potential, and to be honest, most looked quite similar. 

Here's what we landed on...

Primary Colors: [a blush pink] and Greengage.


Accent Colors: Sugar Coral, Greenbriar, Whisper White, and Peach Melba.


Now you'll notice that our primary blush color is missing. That's because while typing this post I got all caught up in the Pantone search again. Heaven help me!

So I'm putting the question out there to you... which of these pink blush Pantones look most like the "blush" Donna Morgan bridesmaid dress that I have loved from the beginning of this process?



Thanks for your help - I need it! (And now you see why I'm losing my little mind. :) )


  1. Lady, you've gotten all sorts of awesome things accomplished! And yes, wedding planning is definitely a part-time -- later, a full-time -- job . . . but you can do it. :) In terms of "blush," I think the gossamer pink color most closely matches the bridesmaid dress -- but they're all gorgeous! Love those hues together. If we'd had a spring/summer wedding, I would have lobbied hard for pink and green! Just love them together.

  2. Thanks Meg! I was between the Gossamer and Seashell but I think you are right. Our wedding is in early September so it's still technically summer hahaha.

  3. Congratulations Erica! Feel free to check out my pinterest wedding boards... I pin everything I like. And let me know if I can answer any questions as you get into the planning process!

  4. Definitely still summer! My sister's wedding was in late September last year and it was 80 degrees and sunny. :) Heck, our November wedding had temperatures in the 60s with bright sun, too! It'll be beautiful!

  5. Wow, you are WAY ahead of me. My wedding is in 4 months and I have done ZERO planning!
    I like Barely Pink :).

  6. this is a lovely clean, wedding site, I really like the design.

  7. Well, there are several aspects of wedding and making it perfect. Wedding invitation card is one the important aspect of making any marriage special.;
