You know what I learned last week? That baseball and weddings go great together… Seriously, we went to our first Dodger game of the season, and came away with so many awesome ideas! Just putting it out there that season tickets to baseball games might be the best way to wedding plan — hours of doing nothing but sitting, talking, drinking, snacking, and cheering on your local sports team together, peppered with wedding brain storming.
(Psst: They're also good for bachelor/bachelorette parties!)
Things we got accomplished while at the game…
- Finally figured out our wedding hashtag: #theredwoodwedding. We met while watching Game of Thrones, and someone (jokingly) said, “wouldn't it be fun to use #redwedding.” And then it hit me, we're getting married at his mom's property that everyone calls “Redwood House.” Boom: The Redwood Wedding!
- We figured out an idea for our wedding invitation: Since Mike spent his childhood making movies at Redwood House, then grew up to write and produce TV, and I just fucking love me some TV, we're thinking of putting together a tv-themed wedding invitation video. I'll spare you all the half-assed plans, but suffice it to say, I'm excited about how it's shaping up.
- Closed in on a reception line strategy: We asked a friend and fellow Dodger fan, what his biggest wedding regret was, and he said, “missing the raw bar we set up, because the receiving line took so long.” I mentioned that a few of our couples have done things like serve the dessert themselves, or doing a circle dance, and many other ideas in lieu of a receiving line, and Mike loved that idea. We'll have to figure out what our version will be. Hmmm…
Things I'm bumping up against
What to wear?
You should see my wedding dress idea Pinterest board — it looks like it's shared by a goth tomboy, a fairy cosplayer, and someone planning a quinceanera. I am all over the freaking fashion map, people! I don't know what I want. But I know I want it to be fucking epic. I even tried on a few dresses already. And while I liked a lot of them, my ultimate desire was to Frankenstein a few of the dresses together to form like Voltron into one epic wedding dress of Megan-awesomeness. Which leads me to think… maybe I get a dress custom made? But I also kind of want to try on more dresses, just because that shit is fun!

Okay, that's it for me. I was doing a lot of travel this week, so I didn't get much more accomplished. What are you guys up to? And who else also find surprising places to get wedding planning done?
