Getting stuff done is always awesome and getting your DFi to talk about it is even better. You cake is adorable, the flowers are cute, and the cake topper will look awesome. The glasses are beautiful as well.

That's awesome that you are staying in the HM suite at WL, I have since pictures and it looks beautiful. Jenny and Vin stayed there.

Oh yay! I'm glad you guys both like the cake topper! I think it's really cute and unique! Seems perfect considering your venue too! The toasting glasses are cute too!

I think the cake is cute too, but honestly (and this is just my opinion so feel free to disregard it as you see fit lol), I would look at cakes with a more of an ocean type feel. Especially if you get that topper. You could still include your colors of course! Here's some pretty beachy looking ones.

hmmm..ya know my original cake was with shells, it was what I always thought I wanted...and then I kept searching and really like the flower cakes. The idea was that the bought is like floating in a sea of flowers? Maybe I need to rethink this. I just thought the seashells would be too much. I don't know. this is why it is bad for me to ever say, I have decided on something.

DF says he likes both. the seashells look like they are on the water and the seashells are under the sea? Are we too literal? haha

These are the shells I found from the site I was going to by the flowers from. but they are pure white

and the cake with topper.

the issues I think I have is there isn't any yellow? and the colored shells I have found are usually tans so that doesn't work either.

Am I over doing the beach theme? I was afraid to over do it because there isn't actually a beach just water?
What is everyone else opinions?


DF just said he wants to go to Disney right now. This is what happens to us when we book trips to disney.

P.S. Disney Registry website is angering me.

Dress alert! yayayayay

Dress alert! yayayayay

So I thought I should post a couple of things on here today. I had a momentary freak out for no apparent reason. Thankfully my mom is awesome so I feel much better. Bought the cake topper today

So I have bought my dress!!! yeah!!! I tried on more dresses then I think possible. The first place I tried on like 30+ and I was so convinced that I found the one. I love vintage and I really don't like bling. So I was having so much trouble finding something that I imagined. I picked a dress from Maggie that was lace but it was sold lace with no beading and when I looked at it again it was so boring. so the last time I went to Long Island I went to a shop and tried on another 20+. Narrowing it down to 3. Looking around the shop just to make sure I had seen everything I noticed a dress shoved all the way in the back of a rack (I had to go into all the dresses to see it) It was totally different then any of the others I had seen before. Being the type of person I am, not able to make a decision, I slept on it for a week and then went back and tried on 2 of the dresses and eliminated the other one immediately and decided on this one.

Sorry took down dress....df has been poking around too much, don't want him to see

I'm altering it so that the lace hangs past the white and the train doesn't have the white under it either
I have ordered more of the same lace and i'm adding cap sleeves to it.
There are jewels at the top of the dress that go down the back to the end of the corset, hard to see in picture

Jewelry i'm not completely set on still looking around. My mom got me a set of pearls for my 21 birthday. I mention that i might wear them and my mom was very excited so that sort of decided that. So I am looking for a fancy pearl bracelet, something like this (maybe less expensive)



and earrings with pearls and diamonds but I haven't found any yet. I want them a little fancy like the bracelet because the necklace with be simple.

something like this

I worked yesterday on programs. I made fans to look like a clam shell. There will be Blue and Yellow ones, with opposite ribbons and brads


closed

open!

stamp for the top

close up of Brad.


I might use these instead of table numbers

The dress is gorgeous. I'm not a huge fan of lace, but I really like the dress, the back especially. The pearls will look great with it!

That's a great idea for the fans, very clever making them look like clams, too cute.

Not sure about the cake, I like both the flowers and the shells. Although, the shells may go with your theme better since it seems like you are going with the total beach theme.

Congrats on your gown!! It's beautiful, and quite different! The fans you made for your programs are very cute too. You girls here on the boards make me realize I need to learn to be more crafty!

Thanks hun. I am very happy with my dress.

I know your cake idea was a suggestion, I need to decide what I want. My fear is that everyone will be over powered by shells hahaha. I don't want that. I bought the topper so at least that is out of the way and the cake can wait for a little while

Morning Ladies!
So I don't have that much to report. I worked on trying to make my own invites last night (no decorations just sizes and stuff) DF liked them but I'm trying to see the cheapest way I can have invitations in my colors. Paper seems very expensive. so we will see. I will most the example later.

I am looking at earring and jewelry as well. Open for suggestions.

I need help finding jewelry thats not too expensive but I like. HELP HELP! Thanks

As far as hair goes I want my hair half up and I think I want fresh flowers. Maybe some pearls or little diamond clips. I'm not sure. Also, I never wanted a veil or a tiara but I have been looking and now i'm not sure. Opinions? What is best for the dress?

Will post more in a bit

I love etsy BUT there jewelry that I seem to like can be rather expensive. I posted some i liked from esty with my dress post. So I was just trying to find something in the middle. not cheap looking but not pricey. I will look at that site again, I only glanced at it last time

hello, So I wanted to get some opinions on bouquets. My original idea was to have a yellow bouquet with small blue flowers scattered through it and then the brides maids have blue with yellow scattered. So I would like to get your opinion. Now i'm thinking what about white with yellow? Which do you prefer brides with white flowers or without? I really dont want to be too "traditional" I don't want roses and I don't think I want Calla lilies or at least not a lot of them.

So here the all yellow idea with maybe small little blue flowers

This is the one I originally wanted but obviously the pale yellow version of these flowers.

This as well but with the yellow again (seems like not a lot of people use the yellow version of these flowers...)


or very yellow






mostly white?

something like this? Without the dark blue more of the white/yellow flowers?

whatever mine was I was thinking something simple like the blue hydrangeas for the girls


what does anyone think? I've had a hard time finding good all yellow bouquets, guess its not extremely popular

Hope you all are having a good day
