So I think Jan-May are going to fly right by and I hate being stressed out, so might as well finish it up and not have to worry about it!

We also decided yesterday that we are just going to do a dessert table for our wedding here, but now I have a bunch of diy ideas for that as well and not to mention I have to figure what to buy/make for the dessert table... luckily I have a friend who owns a dessert restaurant so she's going to help me out with picking our some desserts and d©cor ideas... shes so good at that stuff so that will be really helpful!

A desert table is a good idea; what are your AHR plans all together... ?

Our jack and jill was a great success. It was very overwhelming to see the love and support from our families and friends. Everything went well. We had a ton of food left over and donated it to a local men's shelter. It was a fabulous night. My only regret was not having a DJ. I would definitely try and find a friend who does this or is at least willing to man the music all night. There wasn't much dancing because of this. It was still a great time.

 

So you remember the story about me posting an ad on the internet trying to find my photographer.......well I was a little worried because we had not met her yet. Her and her husband came to the J & J. It was sooo nice to meet them and they are very down to earth people like us so that's perfect. We mesh very well and I can't wait to work with them. Glad that worked out well. I was a little worried. I'm hoping she will send me some of the pictures she took. I didn't take any :(

 

Flowers will be in next week. Very excited to see how they turned out.

 

The bridesmaids dresses are in. We are going next Thursday to try them on and get all set for the alterations.

 

Kay have you purchased your wedding bands yet? That's one thing we have left to do. Then a bunch of smaller things and we should be good to go!

 

Carina. I LOVE dessert tables. I can't wait to see all of your DIY stuff.

Hi Alley,

Im glad your stag and doe was a success!!  That is amazing that your photographer came and you got to meet her :)  What are her packages/prices like?

 

Stuff is coming along for you :) Flowers.... dresses !!

 

We did purchase our bands a long time ago, just to get it out of the way....  Hubby wanted a bling classic band, I don't like it at all but he has to wear it :)

 

Here they are: (The pictures don't do much justice at all)

 

Mine :)

Omg Kay our rings are pretty similar!

 

 

 

Also I ordered a hair flower on etsy and received it today... I was so disappointed... I mean the flower itself is nice... its just that its purple and its supposed to be pure white... I am hoping that there was a mistake and that the seller will fix it! Her reviews were really good and people said if there were problems then she always fixed them so I am just hoping the wrong colour was sent out by accident... but here it is up to my dress...

WOW Csho our rings are almost the exact same, good taste ;) :)  The flower is very nice; but yes purple may be a problem....

 

I have two not sure which one I am going to use, but I can ship you both after my wedding and you can have them :)

 

 and i another nice one, that is a just one flower.... I can take a picture of it if you are interested let me know!  It can be your something "borrowed" :)

Awwww Kay you are sweet! Actually I emailed the lady and told her about the situation and showed her the photo, she asked if it was dark outside... apparently because it is actually pure white material it picks up colours around it, so she said to check it out in the day time... so I brought it to work with me with a piece of white material and when its outside in the daylight it is actually white. It sometimes still has some purpleish tints to it from the shadows of the material behind it but I think since the wedding is outside during day light I think its actually going to be fine!
