        My Shoes

        I actually have two pairs of shoes for the big day, a pair of white wedges from Nine West which I just realized I don't have a pic of and my shoes for the reception: a pair of ivory Martinez Valero shoes. I love them because I think the broach compliments my broach on my clutch. Plus I got them on sale at zappos.com and received them the next day after ordering! I love zappos shipping upgrades!!




        My earrings were ordered from IMG_5078.JPG


        My bracelet is from Nordstrom another Nadri Collection item....they have fab stuff!



        My rehearsal dinner dress is complement of my fav store: BEBE



        Rehearsal Dinner shoes compliments of Zappos again! They are Badgley Mischka's I included the pic on the web cause they have tissue around the bows to protect them and didn't want to undo the tissue. 



        Still more to come!!!

          So not everything was buy buy buy. There were a few projects that I did DIY such as:



          The paint brushes to be placed in little silver pails at the ceremony site.....in this pic the little tage that says "To Brush The Sand From Your Feet" is not attached. Paint brushes Michael's .79c

          My programs (DIY program kit purchased from 2173.JPG2178.JPG2179.JPG2180.JPG


          I've made two sets of petal cones. I have not decided which to use yet....perhaps you ladies can help me decide....shimmer paper I found at Pearl Art's store while browsing around it was in a bin with all sorts of other odds and ends. The doilie looking paper I found at Jo-Ann's fabrics.

            At the wedding ceremony there will be sandal wood fans placed on every seat as well as the programs and the petal cones hanging on the back of the chair. Fans from the knot shop!




            The pinwheels will be placed in these baskets which will be filled with sand and the pinwheels stuck in the sand. Baskets additional 50% off at Michael's each was marked down to $6.99 and I got the additional 50% off of that.  

            028 (2).JPG


            The pinwheels will be placed on the same table as the candy bar, so that while guests retrieve their pinwheel they can munch on some candy


            M&M's was purchased from 035 (2).JPG


            candy jars were purchased from 040 (2).JPG042 (2).JPG


            I purchased our guest book from 038 (5).JPG


            These are the pails that the paint brushes will go into at the ceremony site. There will be ribbon around them.....I got the pails at Michaels...can't remember how much I think $1/each or maybe less.



            My flowers are from 004 (2).JPG010 (2).JPG

              I don't have a pic of my wedding band...it was just to hard to take. Its and eternity brand and the sides are engraved the same as FI's, they are also from Michael Beaudry of Beverly Hills. I will be sure to post a pic when Ileana takes a pic at our wedding but for now here is a pic of FI'a band....he is a Physical Therapist so he didn't want anything flashy just a platinum band with engraving to match mine.
