Newly engaged & planning a fall wedding

Welp, it’s true. I recently got engaged over Memorial Day weekend. Needless to say, I am SO thrilled and cannot wait to be married to the love of my life. Luckily he tells me the same… 🙂

Here’s a little food for thought. We’re both in agreement that we want a fall wedding, however here’s where we differ: I want a fall 2009 wedding, he wants a fall 2010 wedding. From my perspective, I think why not do it this fall instead of next fall, which feels like an enternity away? Sure, I know I should enjoy an engagement and take my time with the planning, because I know it sneaks up on brides-to-be. His perspective is he wants a little more time to enjoy the engagement, and start planning for the next phase of our lives as in financially supporting a family with children, a home, etc. While I absolutely respect this way of thinking (and love & appreciate it), we’re a team, so he’s not alone in anything and neither am I. Of course, being two independent people, that will be somewhat of a test as we progress toward marriage. With all this said, my instinct tells me I should honor my fiance’s wishes and wait to get married until next fall. Your thoughts?

Home decor at an extreme? These individually hand-made temperature-sensitive glass tiles are a new item on the market. Colors vary according to the temperature of whatever comes into contact with it (ie. your hand, water, air temperature). Think mood rings.

It utilizes Moving Color™ technology and can be purchased online through Inventables. A single 4x4x3/8” tile runs roughly $16 and a square foot runs about $150. Have a specific size, design, or color in mind? You can have tiles custom-made according to your taste. It is also a green product and uses 20 – 80% recycled glass. They are marketed for use on floors, walls, and countertops.  Take a look:

Thanks to bookofjoe for his original post. I’m a big fan design-wise, but realistically speaking? I think it’s too pricey of a product. What are your thoughts?
