    Ok soooo first I'm sorry this is late, but I figured better late then never ;o)

    I want to send a special thanks to my dear friend Carly! She introduced me to BDW, and has helped me so much! I have also made a new good friend thanks to BDW, Kristen (kristendotcom), who has helped me as well. We got a chance to hang out a few times in Maui and will hang out again soon enough I'm sure when she MOVES back to Jersey ;o) Even though I decided not to have a destination wedding, you BDW girls were still very helpful and welcoming so thank you ALL so much! I'm not sure where to start - I am SOO not good at this stuff- so I'll just begin!

    Attire- w/ full slip, finger tip veil and Nicole Miller head piece

      Groom & RB attire I don't have pix but you will see soon when I post. Charcoal gray tux with ivory shirt, tie and vest, and black shoes for the groom and RB. The GM & fathers will wear the same tux and shirt, but with a gray and black vest with a black tie and shoes.

      Bridesmaids, Jim Jhelm Occasions Collection- Dresses were in EGGPLANT.
      This is the MOH dress-

      Centerpieces-
      I supplied 8" round clear vases, eggplant purple votive holders, votive candles and peacock feathers. The florist did a great job on creating them for me. Once I get some professional pix, I'll post them. It was basically the vase filled with peonies and peacock feathers, three purple votive holders on the side w/ the candle.

        Flower inspirations-
        Mine were soft pink peonies with ivory callas spread throughout & ostrich plumes hanging off. She also added crystals inside the callas. The BM had ivory peonies with a touch of peacock feathers, calla for groom, and peacock feathers for the rest of the boys. FG will had small bouquet of peony’s.

        Cake inspiration without the crystals. The bakery didn’t have them and I got into other stuff and never got them :o( But the real cake looked great, very similar to this-

        Guest book and Ring Bear pillow matched the FG dress. I hot glued ivory fabric to the pen with a huge ostrich feather and finished it off with tiny crystals- pix to follow ;o) I felt pretty crafty afterward.

          Bridal party gifts-
          Our very own BDW's Courtney (agape gems) was so wonderful to work with! She custom made my girls swarvorski crystal earrings and necklace with a crystal drop in the back. They are actually the same color crystal as my earrings. I also got my girls antique silver jewelry boxes- Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

          Courtney made my FG necklace as well, I got her girlie stickers, nail polishes, rock candy, and some costume jewelry too. No pix of that, SORRY. I did a lot of this last minute (shocker) and so I forgot to take pix of everything.

          RB- I got him a pair of Chuck Taylor sneakers (he loved them and wore them to the reception), a PSP baseball game and rock candy as if he needs any more sugar-

            My photographer I met through Carly and she is a former BDW member. I noticed her pictures when she did Alyssa's bridal shower photos and Carly's BD shoot. She is an absolute gem and is so easy to work with! I’d like to say I made a friend out of her too. She had an assistant with her and he was great too. -

                  I love your colors - very elegant and the idea of a donation in lieu of a favor is very thoughtful.

                  Thanks for sharing!
