Well it's been months since we've updated this neglected community! I went through a major planning-procrastination-slump over the holidays, but we're getting tons of stuff done now!

Our parties (my bridal shower & bachelorette party, Geoff's bachelor party) are being planned by our fabulous friends Anne, Angie, and George and will be on March 8th. I have my ceremony shoes, but need my reception flatcomfies. And I have my cousin Jennifer's veil that I'm borrowing. We also ordered all our favors!

This week I'm working on collecting all of the addresses I need. We ordered the invitations this weekend and they are SO perfect! Here's an ok cameraphone shot:

All but one bridesmaid has their dress, and hers should be arriving in February. I'm thrilled with them! They are the perfect color pink & coordinate so well with my dress. Same material, same neckline, same rouching. Here's Amanda & Ali modeling them:

Geoff's friend Leo (who is also a groomsman) is a professional baker and has generously volunteered to provide our cupcakes! (We are foregoing the traditional cake). He made a batch last night according to the look we wanted & sent over a picture. Geoff's picking them up today. They are EXACTLY what I wanted, even though he said they're a little messy since they were the first batch/trial run. I know some of them are lemon flavor with raspberry glaze, mmmm!

I hope to post more soon (shoes! rings! flowers!) as we continue planning full steam ahead.

Well it shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm already starting to look at wedding dresses. It's a huge part of the day and I don't want any hiccups! I'll probably wait a few months to actually go places to try them on. But in the meantime, I've been scouring magazines and websites to get some clear ideas in my head of what I want.

I'm definitely thinking straps & A-line. I'm not sure on embroidary or any other little details. It would be great to be able to work some small amount of pink into it, but we'll see. Here's some examples of dresses that I'm drawn to.

We're planning to scout out locations next weekend, so we can set an official date. It will hopefully be somewhere around May 3, 2008. We're almost sure we will end up somewhere at Lake Las Vegas Resort. The Ritz-Carlton has the option of having colorful butterflies released after the ceremony. Um YEAH. I'm ALL ABOUT THAT. Even if we end up elsewhere, I want it! Haha.

Welcome to whitechiffon, the wedding journal of Ashley & Geoff! Now that we're engaged, we thought it would be fun for both of us to keep this journal. That way we can look back on our time as fiancees all the way to the alter. Plus we can share the details with all our friends and family.

So ok, ok, it's time to give you all the complete story that you've all been waiting for! All the pictures and information from Geoff's beautiful & romantic proposal of marriage to me!
