MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING

I’m finally back to posting after the wedding/honeymoon extravaganza! I wanted to share a few pictures and will hopefully have much more soon!

The Wedding!

Our first meal on the wedding day: chili dogs

Let them eat cake

Yes it’s seven weeks before the wedding and no I hadn’t even thought about the cake until recently. It’s not that I don’t love cake, believe me…I do. I just had left it out and waited until I knew how the budget was going to shake out. Anyway, in one of those serendipitous happenings that you always wish for when planning an event, I found a baker in my price range and we made a deal.
Here are my inspirations.

BIG News: If the shoe fits…

Dear friends, I’ve hit a big milestone in my bride-dom. I purchased shoes that I intend to wear with my wedding gown. Apparently the shoes you are going to wear on that day are imperative to the hemming process. Who would have thought? Now, I know you haven’t seen the actual dress but I will divulge that it’s white. wink wink.
What do we think? They were quite affordable ($109) compared to the Miu Miu’s I’ve been lusting after. And, don’t worry there’s a 60 day return policy in case the glitter actually looks like a kindergarten art project.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’m a shoe girl so I wanted something fun. I always wear heels, plus my intended is over a foot taller than I am so I never feel bad about wearing stilts. I figured out (when I wore flats to our engagement session) that I don’t look as small and fragile next to him as much as short and squatty.

My Wedding Inspirations

Today is April 27th. That means our wedding is exactly four months away. I hyperventilated a bit when I realized. In honor of that and of the royal wedding (of course) I thought I’d share some of my wedding inspirations. If Kate Middleton forsakes Queen Victoria’s jewels for flowers in her hair I will never forgive her.
