Weddings on My Mind
The premise of the show is that wedding planner David Tutera shows up three weeks before a couple's big day and changes whatever he wants - the venue, the bridal gown, the food. Typically he expands on the concept of the bride and makes it into something amazing.
It's a fun show to watch - and with my anniversary coming up next month - I've been thinking about my wedding. I wasn't one who knew from girlhood what theme or decor I wanted for my wedding. After my husband and I got engaged, we set a date in September. Because I loved the fall season, the only thing I was definite on was having a picture with the fall leaves. Not a lot of leaves have changed here by the end of September, so getting that picture took some hiking - in my bridal gown - but we got some great fall shots.
I didn't really care what the colors were or the flowers - just something that tied into fall. If I could go back, I would probably have more of an opinion and maybe picked a different dress. But the day was amazing - it couldn't have gone any better - including riding away from our reception in an old-fashioned car!
Have you watched My Fair Wedding? What wedding concepts would you change about your big day, if you could go back? If a wedding is in the future, what sort of theme do you want?

No one would ever imagine a fresh-faced young woman could be robbing stage bandits of their ill-gotten fortunes. But Jennie Jones is desperate to save her family's ranch from foreclosure. And the risks seem worth it, until her upright new ranch hand offers a glimpse of how much is really at stake.
Former bounty hunter Caleb Johnson is ready for a new, clean start. With a woman like Jennie, he could build a future there in Utah territory. But only if his gentle faith can guide her in a choice between the land she's fought so hard to save and a future by his side.
