SoontobeMrsE's Planning Thread - with Pics (Cause I know better)

Recommended Posts

WOW - I can't believe it's my turn! Thank you BDW for being here for me! I have met so many wonderful women and many of your ideas have been the inspiration for so many parts of my wedding!

 

Thanks for listening, encouraging, crying with me when times were tough, laughing and cheering me on this past year as I planned this wedding.

 

Many thanks and MUCH LOVE to all the Mods, the November brides, PV Brides and those extra special brides who have become my friends and confidants! I love you and couldnt have done all of this without you!

 

Now....here's what you want so here it goes!

 

The ring that started it all in December 2005:

The Dress (tea length)- Purchased at Lane Bryant for $89 (excuse the hair and make up) - you can see the veil laying on the side - it's a fingertip length with scalloped edge with beads and crystals all along the edge - I paid almost $200 for the veil but it was the one thing I wanted to hand down to my daughter:

I don't have a pic of FI's shirt (Sorry), nor do I have a pic of Ring Bearer or FG dress. Both outfits are at my parents house so you'll have to wait on the wedding pics for those!

YAY, your big day is almost here! The blumeboxes came out great (you know I have been waiting to see those pics!). The ceremony set up is really nice, and I love your starfish sandals. You look beautiful in your dress. Those BM dresses are super cute and cheap! What a great find.

There are so many things I havent took pictures of but will be sure to include them in my review when I get back. This is what I have for now and I thought I'd get it posted since this is my last day at work!

 

That's it! We leave on Wednesday and I have been so emotional the past few weeks. This marriage thing is a huge and final step. Our legal day is tomorrow - of course I'll take pics and post when I get back.

 

Thanks again BDW for everything!

 

With love,

Celina

Soon to be Mrs. Ellis
