Small update. Nothing on the DIY front, but a bit on the shopping front
I was in NYC last weekend, so of course I got my shopping on! I don't know how you NYC ladies refrain from shopping all the time - my gosh I'd be so broke if I lived there . I went to BHLDN at Anthropologie which I've been dying to go to for ages, I got this cute card for my FI to open before our ceremony, some pink mercury votives for our head table, and my wedding earrings! I'd been eyeing these earrings for a while so I was happy to get to BHLDN to see them in person! They are gorgeous and super lightweight which I love. That store had so many pretty dresses! If any of you ladies are looking for something non-poufy and very romantic/vintagey, I'd definitely take a look at their dresses. Also got my welcome dinner dress and a super flatting black dress from Century 21 (amazing store!!) and some random stationary things. All in all, a good trip!
I've also received my getting ready robe from Etsy (uBride) and my tumbler stickers from Davet Designs. No real pics but they look just like these website pics and I'm happy with the quality of both! The robe in particular was a great bargain if anyone is looking for floral robes. Decided to go with mint green for the cup labels so they don't look too girly for the men (though my FI has told me that mint green is not a masculine colour )
Also starting to pull the trigger on things I've been eyeballing for a while! I ordered my cake topper from Etsy (Betteroffwed) and my 2nd attempt at Wedding Shoes (Kate Spade). Can't wait for these both to arrive!
Oh and I punched the holes on my door hangers, and they look great!
Last thing that I'd appreciate any advice from you ladies. Do you think my dress needs a sash? My first instict is no because I think I like it simple and I'd rather not spend the money. But my dress is super simple so I'm wondering if it needs something blingy? I saw this super pretty really thin sash (like 0.5 inch) at BHLDN that I'm debating. I plan on wearing the earrings posted above, the shoes above if they work, a blingy bracelet, ivory orchids in my hair and a pretty simple veil
