Also, let me tell you that I do not have one ounce of Martha Stewart in me, so I tried to keep everything really simple. My friend Abby is an artist and photographer and designed and printed the invitations, luggage tags, coozies, and hang tags. I am so happy she will be in Mexico to do our wedding pictures and our TTD session.
I’m not really that active on the forum but am on all of the time. I cannot even begin to tell you how much the forum meant to me while I was planning. Most of my friends are already married and starting to have kids now. They don’t get very excited about this kind of stuff anymore, so it has been great to share this time with so many amazing people who are in the same place. Thank you!
Okay, so here it goes….
Picture of Micah and me the night we got engaged. He proposed to me on the River Walk in the New Orleans French Quarter on 11/16/07.
Wedding Dress (I had the cathedral train removed. The veil is very simple -one tier, cut edge, waist length.)
Forgive my face - I was sucking in LOL!
Ceremony Shoes (Victoria Secret – I’m not crazy over them because they actually have pink glitter on them but I do not want to do anymore shopping, so I am sticking with them.)
Reception Shoes (Steve Madden from Shoes.com – love them!)
Jewelry (from Amy’s Bridal Accessories Bridal Jewelry at Amys Bridal Accessories: Couture Bridal Jewelry, Bridesmaid Jewelry & Bridal Tiaras that are completely customizable and unique. The earrings have posts not hook and both earrings and bracelet are very dainty)
Okay will post more in a just a sec.!

Garter (From ebay â€“ I am going to surprise Micah. He is a die-hard fan.)
Hair inspiration (taken from another BDW girlâ€™s hair inspiration on the hair and makeup thread)
Makeup inspiration (I scanned this pic from a magazine page so it is not the best quality. I will do something different with my lip color)
Micahâ€™s suit. From Banana Republic. He will just wear it with a white shirt, tucked in with a belt, and brown leather sandals.
Bridesmaid dresses (Sour Lemon embossed beach dress and ribbon flower belt from J Crew)
Groomsmen attire (White linen Tommy Bahamas shirt and tan linen pants from Old Navy)
MOB attire (from Talbots)
Still more to come!

Bouquet Starfish Jewel
Micahâ€™s Boutonniere (groomsmen will not wear one)
Ceremony Location (Presidential Gazebo â€“ will just have hanging flower corsages on the gazebo, rose petals down the aisle on the sand, and the chairs will be uncovered.)
Invitations (sorry this one is big!)
I sent out a simple save the date letter and magnet in January, so I only sent these invitations to our booked guests two weeks ago.
Again, I am not really creative and good at things like this, so I sort of just stole ideas from everyone on the forum and pieced it together in PowerPoint. I just printed it front and back on regular paper. These will be mailed with the luggage tags next week.
Still more to post!

Luggage Tags (will send with newsletter)
OOT Bags (Single guys will get the same bags but in black)
Coozies (My friend did the design and Micahâ€™s cousin who has a screen printing company printed them.)
Guestbook (Again, not crafty so thrilled when I found this instant scrapbook at Hallmark.)
Bridesmaid gifts (Coach wristlets â€“ one gets yellow and one gets blue. Also, I bought my MOH dress and both their flip flops for the ceremony. I will also treat them to manis and pedis at the spa the morning of the wedding.)
Let me know if you see anything wrong with the newsletter. I haven't sent it out yet and have time to make corrections. Thanks again ladies for all of the great ideas and inspiration!!!
