"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come..." -Audrey Hepburn
Style icon Audrey Hepburn said this once (supposedly...I wasn't there) and although I have no idea what she was talking about in context, I have decided that charming Ms. Hepburn was giving sage advice on planning a wedding. Her idea will be my wedding mantra: plan it, have fun and let it happen.
So as long as we're planning, let's talk about style.
I'm the sort of girl who has dreamt about her wedding since the age of 7, so it has been quite easy for me to envision my own version of wedding perfection. I will be marrying a rather charming Navy pilot, so I decided that we should host an old-fashioned yet chic celebration with a dash of 1950s glamour. Our color scheme will be red, white and gold. He and his brothers will dress in various service uniforms and we will pass under a sword arch as we are exiting the church! Talk about drama! I'm hoping to pull off a sophisticated DC wedding with some military weaponry thrown in for good measure. Bring out the canons!
