Blue Eye Story
Our Blue Eye story began a few years ago. Last year marked 2 years of dating and on July 19, 2011 Mr. Blue Eye and I were engaged! Flowers, romance, music, tears… Oh, please! This is not a romantic comedy. Our engagement was exactly that… Ours.
We went to our favorite bar, Foolery’s, for a burger and fries (our favorite meal). After dinner, Mr. Blue Eye wanted to pick up something to drink while we watched the Brewers play (not unusual for a summer evening in Wisconsin). Like a typical girl I was getting irritated because the Mr. couldn’t decide what to get. Little did I know what he had up his sleeve.
Mr. Blue Eye kept asking if we should get a fun drink like Champagne. I had no idea what had got into him but I kept rejecting his ideas and said just pick something. We walked out of the store with boring beer. 🙂
When we got to his parents house to watch the game I was sitting on the couch and Mr. Blue Eye walked up behind me and put a necklace around my neck with the ring hanging on it. He simply and elegantly asked me to marry him. The rest is history. 🙂
The Planning Begins…
Now, that was the love story but after the celebrating, phone calls, and pictures my creativity started flowing. The dress, flowers, food, invites, pictures, budget… Oh my!
I will be doing a few installments about the planning of our wedding. Some tips and tricks we used to stay on budget, stay unique, and true to our personalities. Did I mention we planned it in 3 months?!?! So I will also be sharing some time saving ideas.
