Cute idea. I like the wording for the tag.

FI got his suit and 2 of the 4 groomsmen have as well.
Almost everyone is booked...I think we are at 56 so just 10 or so to go!
We got the groomsmen's ties today at Santey Alley in downtown LA for $6 each and they are perfect match for the BM gowns! Both in metallic sage. Yay!
I also got my dad's suit today. In fact 3 piece suit, shirt, tie, belt and socks for $100. A real steal! If any of you ladies are in SoCal Santey Alley is where it's at.
As some of you might already know, besides my full time jobs as bride to be and mommy to a beautiful almost 1 year old baby boy (whimper...i can't believe he's going to be 1!) I am a publicist by profession. One of my clients, ShoeDazzle.com (an online styling service which suggests shoes, handbags and accessories for you based on your fashion profile. you select one per month and it's shipped to you for $39.95 per month. it's a lot of fun) well anyway, i got my monthly selection and, gasp, I think i might be wearing my $40 shoes for the wedding. It's hilarious but hey, again, saving money and they give me like 4.5 inches and so far seem pretty comfortable. here's hoping. i've only walked around my apt in them so might have to give them a longer trial run.
Also, I am getting a custom monogram made from a gal on etsy. She sent me 9 options today! 9! And they are al pretty great so I just need to figure out which one we like and go from there. I think I might ask for more than one in hi-res so I can use them for different things. If I can figure out how to post them I will. I would love all of your feedback.
And those of you who told me about Carolina...you are right. She's pretty amazing.
So if I can get my pre-wedding brochures done this weekend, I will feel really accomplished.
Sorry for my rant. I just worked out and now I can cross that all of my list. Feels good. I hope this can continue.
I found a BD Photographer in Houston that got recommended to me and she seems really cool in The heights area. Boudoir Mon Cheri and her prices are really the best in town. My friend Shelly has a session for her upcomming wedding in Aug so i am going to see how it goes for her.
I may actually be taking the trip to Houston to get my pics done by her. Keep me posted on how your friend likes her if you don't mind.

Meredith- love the proposal story! Great website.

I really like this idea. I may "borrow it" if you don't mind.

I'm over the moon in love with it tho.
Hey everyone! I'm booked May 12, 2011. This place looks amazing - if anyone has any info or ideas that would be amazing!
Question for all you AS brides who did a beach ceremony. What is the wooden aisle runner (that is provided with the pearl package) like? Is it easy to walk on/narrow wooden slats?
I'm just thinking about the type of shoe I'll get. I don't want to wear full on stiletto heels, but am planning to get an ever-so-slight kitten heel or wedge. Tho' I'm generally quite comfortable in heels I am one of those people who always manages to get my heel caught in boardwalks etc. and am curious if I should avoid the small kitten heel altogether. (Already having visions of tripping down the aisle - not a comforting mental image).
I'm not getting married on the beach, but I asked for just the plain white runner so they're going to remove the wooden one altogether. I'm wearing stilettos so I didn't need to add falling down the aisle nighmares to my list of nightmares.
