Wedding Wednesday on Thursday!

A lot to share today. First off we have decided not to have our wedding reception at the bar we originally decided on. The St. Pete Bowl game changed their time and it became too difficult for it to work out. So, we started looking last week at where to have our reception and found a couple places on the beach. Then we started thinking that if we decided on a place on the beach then we should have the ceremony on the beach because otherwise we would have to drive at least 30 minutes from the church to the reception site. So, we looked and looked and called and called and found a place we really like. It's a Lion's Club "Beach" House. :) It's right on the beach and the building is perfect. We are going to have our ceremony on the beach and then have the festivities at the House. There is a nice back patio and the inside is big enough to fit our party. I'm really excited about it. We are putting the deposit down this evening. YEAH for that. So, now we are starting to look at caterers and vendors to rent things from. My list got longer but my family especially my sisters are stepping up and helping out a ton. I'm really grateful for them. So, we are replanning the wedding but I'm just happy I have help and I'm being open to all suggestions.

We met with the Pastor last week and he gave us some good suggestions for music and for the sand ceremony. I contacted the person he suggested and hopefully will hear back soon. We need to get most the details sorted out so we can start the invitation.

Ok..well that's the planning and now I get to share an FO! Yes, I finished, well, almost still need to weave in ends and block but the knitting is done on my WEDDING SHAWL!! YES, I finished it! I'm so happy with it. I made it a couple rows shorter than the pattern because I felt I was short and didn't want it to be too long and I think it will be perfect after some blocking.

So what do you think??

Comments: I'm glad that ripped back the times I did and I really like how easy and fast the pattern was. I recommend to anyone looking for a nice quick shawlette. Couldn't wait to take a picture and took pic in my glasses and pjs. :)
