December 7th

Do you know what tomorrow is? You know, aside from December 7th and Pearl harbor Remembrance Day? It's my kissiversary. Tomorrow will mark the date of my first kiss with the Mister, ELEVEN years ago. It's also the date I would have gotten married to him if the whole Labor Day thing wasn't going to work (see #10 on the list of Things That Go Wrong).

So I thought it would be fun to give you an idea of what that winter wedding might have looked like. First things first, it would still be very casual in feel. Winter doesn't always mean formal, sometimes it means exceedingly cozy, near cabin-like. So naturally, I would have found a barn or cabin or something like that for the location.

I don't know of any around here off the top of my head, but you guys know how relentless I am. The decorations would reflect that cozy winter vibe as well.

But, I'd also like to get some plaid in there somehow. A sweet grey-ish plaid napkin would look great tied in a green velvet ribbon.

Of course the invitations would reflect that cozy, natural winter vibe as well.

Given the time of year, wooden ornaments would make great favors!

As for attire...

Either of those options would be truly beautiful, though the first probably does a better job of being casual and would match this more rustic bouquet.

Here is where I get a little unique... winter weddings always see bridesmaids in long satin dresses. Useless, absolutely useless. Whereas a cute little cashmere dress can be worn again (at least in theory).

And while we are being unique, we should probably have a Hot Chocolate Toddy Bar.

But, let's face it. The coolest thing about my wedding plans were that they incorporated other activities that lasted an entire weekend. Did someone say wedding sledding?

Or perhaps rehearsal dinner skiing?

My main point is, it would have been fun and beautiful. And perhaps we could have avoided the whole "Irene" thing...

Probably would have been a Nor'easter instead.

Happy Kissiversary Dan.
