Hi All! Wow, I haven't been on here in about 6 months!!!! Lots to catch up on, and I doubt that I ever really will:) I spent my summer in Malawi, working for the World Food Programme, and since returning I've been busily working on my thesis research and writing. So there's been very little time for wedding planning until now, my winter break! I just returned from a site visit at Ceiba del Mar with my mom. It was SO amazing - I couldn't be happier with the resort and the vendors! I've basically gotten all of the decor/flowers planned out now, which is a relief:)
Hmmm, let's see what else.... My dress came in last month and I went for the first fitting! I'll do the final fitting until much closer to the wedding. My bridesmaids all have their dresses, I bought them during a J.Crew sale! I got lucky, I have 6 BMs and let them choose, and 3 chose one, 3 chose the other:)
I'm still shopping for my reception dress (I want something short and fun and haven't been happy with anything I've found yet). I DO have my wedding shoes and I'm sooooooo incredibly obsessed with them!!!! The hardest thing right now is stopping myself from wearing them! I bought them while in NYC over Thanksgiving break:) I had my mind set on a pair of Jimmy Choos but we stopped at Manolo first and as soon as I walked in I saw these and said I was done! Now I have something old, something new, and something blue. Just need to borrow something!
We have my wedding band (band: http://www.pennyprev...n-stacking-band which matches my engagement ring (mine's white gold, not rose gold): http://www.pennyprev...t-rings/liat... click on the picture to see the side pics, the "crown" that the diamond sits in is my favorite part!!). Still shopping for my fiance's band, but he wants just a simple white gold or platinum band so should be easy. Also, my friend who designed our Save the Dates is in the process of designing our invites now. Her shop on Etsy is http://www.etsy.com/...aCorrespondence if any of you are looking for someone to design yours! She's awesome - I'll post pics when she's done:)
Hmm... I think that's about it! I'll hopefully get more done during my break. Only one more semester till I have my Masters and my MRS Woohooo!! I hope wedding planning is going well for all of you too, and I'm excited to read back through posts the last couple of months and see what I've missed:)
