A few wedding details..

I think this post would more accurately be titled, the *FEW* wedding details we know.
For starters, we want a date (trying for 4-26-2014) in April of next year. A spring wedding was a MUST.
We want warm (but not scorching hot) weather. Summers in the South are notoriously brutal, so a summer date is not an option for us in my opinion. I've been a bridesmaid in a July wedding before and it was just too hot. Even though it was an indoor wedding, everyone's hair and makeup looked awful in the humidity.  
We already picked our colors and they are blush and champagne. I think it's going to be such a pretty color scheme!!! I'm also playing around with a slogan of "Eat, Pink, and be Married"...not sure if I will use that or not.
  I have four wonderful ladies (they deserve a post all to themselves) as bridesmaids. We are going with a mismatched look for bridesmaids dresses. I am not a huge fan of any bridesmaids dress I've ever worn, except for one and it was like the dresses below and wasn't sold as a bridesmaids dress. The last thing I would want to do is have my dearest friends fork over money for an ugly bridesmaids dress, so they are going to pick their own w/in the color scheme.

We are planning to get married in Savannah, GA. That was an easy decision. I mean, what's not to love about Savannah?


I'm hoping we will get lucky and the azaleas will be blooming for our wedding.
I'm from a small town in SC and my fiance is from Iowa. Neither of us especially wanted to get married in our hometowns. One of Savannah's selling points for us is that guests traveling to our wedding will have plenty to do. Savannah has lots of tourist attractions-historical tours, ghost tours, a bar scene, and the beach is nearby.
I still have tons to work out. I'm taking a day of annual leave next week so I can have a day to make phone calls and try to get more plans nailed down.
I hope yall have good Thursday!
