Wedding Hair

I definitely want to wear my hair down. I found my inspiration photo online after looking at a zillion different wedding do's. It's so simple, but beautiful at the same time, perfect!

Decisions, decisions.

Wedding Sweat Shop!

Forgive my absence we have a bit of a wedding sweat shop going in our room right now! We are finishing up our favors and invitations this weekend, and I'll have photo updates soon on the progress. We are planning to personalize some invitations we ended up buying for $2 at Big Lots! Once we add fancy stuff to them they will be a little more expensive, but still such a bargain, and they will be completely our vision. I have to hand it to my fiance he is a DIY genius!

Wedding Website offers a pretty handy tool, a free wedding website. You can list all the info for guests, you can even make up a fun couples quiz for visitors to take. I think it will end up being a nice tool for my friends who are better about responding to rsvp's online instead of mailing it in.... things are getting easier all the time. :-D

To do:

Sometimes I feel like my to do list is growing longer! So many things left to do:
  • Finish Favors
  • Invites and response cards
  • Take engagement pics
  • Find an officiant
  • Book hair and makeup
  • Find Jewelry and shoes for the bridesmaids
  • Figure out all of our important songs for the DJ
  • Work on movie montage with baby pics
  • seating chart
  • book linens
  • work on program--- find cute poem to use
  • buy groomsmen gifts
  • Come up with signature cocktails
  • Book our honeymoon
I'm sure I'm probably leaving some stuff out, but the point I'm trying to make is that this wedding stuff can get a little overwhelming at times. I know it will all be worth it on the day of, but right now it seems like a lot.

DIY Favor Project

For our wedding favors we are making little candy jars. We used shape paper punchers to make cute circle cute outs of different sizes and then monograming them with an old fashioned "M" stamp. They look pretty cute in person, forgive the crappy phone upload pictures :-P

Cute Chick-lit

I started reading Queen of Babble in the Big City by Meg Cabot, I am specifically liking this book because the main character wants to open a shop that restores vintage wedding dresses, and in between each chapter is a very cute wedding dress guide.
