Guest Post: Wedding Q+A

I have Hope from Hope in a Blog featured today, 
she is getting married at the end of this month! 
When are you getting married? 
We are getting married on May 31st! So soon and I cannot wait!!!! 

How did you meet?  
We met at Wake Forest University and started dating my sophomore year and his senior year. College sweethearts!  
What is your Engagement Story?  
We got engaged on April 27th, 2013 in Watch Hill, Rhode Island... we were walking on the windy beach in the middle of the afternoon and had brought towels and blankets so we could enjoy the somewhat deserted beach and the sounds of the ocean. I was in my workout pants, Spyros' wind breaker, and TOMS...clearly not anticipating a proposal. After some enormously sweet words, a little trickery, and a bottle of champs, Spyros got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was perfect. 

How many bridesmaids did you choose? How did you go about choosing them? 
I have 10! Yes...TEN! I chose them because they each hold a special place in my heart and in my life. My sister is my MOH and Spyros' two sisters are bridesmaids = my family, my 4 best friends from home (Charlotte, NC), and my 3 dearest friends from Wake Forest University. Couldn't imagine this day without them by my side. 
What is your color scheme, and what made you choose it? 
My color scheme is blush, soft pink, champagne tones, ivory, and grays 
Choosing this was easy. I have always loved these neutral/pink tones + peonies are a 1oo% must at my wedding :) 

What are you looking forward to the most? 
I am most looking forward to the church doors opening and walking down the aisle to Spyros. I don't know how I am going to keep my composure because my heart literally flies into my throat when I think about it!
What is the most stressful thing about planning your wedding?
 So far, I am doing my best to not let anything stress me out... I hired an amazing planner to help make my wedding day as stress free as possible for me and it is the best investment I have made. 

What's your best piece of advice for future brides out there? 
Remember, your wedding day is about YOU and HIM and your commitment to each other under God. The rest is fluff. And although it is important (trust me, I love fluff) the true meaning of marriage should be the most exciting part. There are days, I have to remind myself of this too!
Thanks so much Hope! I wish you a lifetime of happiness and I can't wait to see your wedding photos!  It sure is coming quick!
