I totally hit the jackpot and finally found the shoes on Monday. Just snapped a few quick pics with my iphone. (Sorry about the photo quality)

Found them at Nordstrom Rack in the designer section for a cool $109!! In the photo they almost look a very pale light blue, but they're actually silver.

It was a total Jerry Seinfeld marble rye moment. I spotted the only pair from down the aisle and all but pryed them out of this woman's hands. OK I'm embellishing, but I did almost knock someone over.
LOVES them!

1) Had a wedding monogram logo designed for us
2) Ordered personalized water bottle labels with the logo on it
3) Have my OOT bag vendor picked out (who also designed our logo which the OOT bags will also have)
4) Sent out the STD's
5) Got our Personlized Lip Balm for the OOt bags
6) Got our Glass Beach Photo Coasters for the Table Favors
7) Have Bridesmaids dresses ordered
7) oh yes and ordered my wedding gown

Still have plenty to do though. But once I officially started receiving stuff and picked out and ordered my gown it feels more real LOL Slowly but surely its coming together :-)

I'm dying to go to Tahiti. I had my eye on Bora Bora but it was CRAZY expensive so its not in the cards for us with the wedding and all. But it looks GORGEOUS!
WOW, You have lots done :-) Have you got pix? I cant wait to order my dress... will be doing this more towards sept/oct i think :-)
Yipee... like you said its all coming together, making it more real x

Ok so here's my pic attempt of the stuff I have ordered or received so far LOL:

The DB dresses are in the the same just in 3 different shades of blue. I think they pick up in the boys' ties nicely :-)

My friend sent me pics of me in the dress! The sample was actually a size too small on me (it had actually been a cancellation), so my dress won't have all those crease marks in the front, it'll lay more flat. I'm also having it made with a sweetheart neckline instead. I can't wait to see it, it comes in in January!

Great silhouette! I agree with Bonnie, simple and extremely elegant. The sweetheart neckline will look great. As for the Louboutins, are you going traditional white/silver or something bright? Definitely post those when you get them! And thanks for the shoe comment -- LOVE Nordstom Rack and Loehmann's!

Nicola- So sorry to hear the news. Keep your head up, dear. Keep that positive attitude and I have a feeling things will go your way :)

Mad props for getting all that done! You inspire me . . . everything looks very tied together.


As a sidenote, anyone else think the model in the David's bridal dresses looks like a pre-plasticHeidi Montag?!! (think Season 1 of THe Hills)

Whoops Did I just admit I watch that piece of garb show?!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
