@calgarybride2015 - I got my stickers in the mail, so my goal this weekend is to get the labels off the cups! Thanks for the tip

 

@acw271011 - You are so so kind! I'm pretty bad at the DIY but I think I'm decent at copying ideas from others haha... Thank goodness for this forum, Pinterest and Etsy :).  I hope it does turn out!

Small update.  Nothing on the DIY front, but a bit on the shopping front :P

 

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 :P )

 

Screen_Shot_2014_10_01_at_11_54_05_PM.pn

 

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!

 

Screen_Shot_2014_10_02_at_12_07_05_AM.pn

 

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

Omg I'm jealous. I soooo wanted that saying for my labels but didn't see it in her designs so didn't think I could!!! They look great.

Everything is super awesome. Great finds lady!

If I'm being honest I'd be worried that small of a sash would get lost in the dress with the detailing of your dress. Ie - it wouldn't make a big enough statement to even be worth it. I think your dress is beautiful the way it is. If you wanted bling I'd personally go for a larger one. :) just my opinion, sometimes I feel bad stating it so please don't be offended.

@calgarybride2015 - Not offended at all!  ;)  This is exactly what I want/need to hear which is why I asked

 

You're completely right though.  And it's not worth almost $200 to get lost in the dress.  I don't really care about bling that much to be honest... but a friend put it in my head!

 

I asked her to change the saying and she was pretty easy going! I actually changed my fonts a few times too and she was very quick to do it

I agree, no sash needed!

What did you use to punch holes in the door hangers?

Thanks ladies!


Oh my gosh. Girl you are amazing!

I love the shoes! Fab! And the robe is so cute!

This is only my opinion but I think you have a style of dress that would work fabulously with or without a sash. You could do whatever your heart desires. But if you go the sash route you would definitely need something wider with the bling that will stand out. I think that thin one will get lost in the beauty of your dress whereas a wider one would enhance. Like I said - either/or would be fabulous!

The stickers turned out great!! Even if FI says mint isn't a masculine colour... Lol. I like it. Men just don't know anything. That's something you young ladies will find out in a hurry! Lol

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@marinah84 - A 1.5" hole puncher! I swear the craft world has everything.  I picked up one in NYC but they have them at Michaels too.  It made punching them really easy. Going to use the punch for a couple of different things

 

@acw271011 - Thank you for the advice! I think I'm going to go no sash... I think it looks okay sashless too. It just makes things a bit easier for me, and I don't have to go around looking for one.

Thanks ladies!

I think a belt would look great with your dress but its not necessary.  If you can find one that isn't too expensive then go for it, they can get really pricey.  

 

Everything for the wedding is looking very nice, only 2 more months to go!!! Also don't forget to give out the door hangers like I did....lol  That was one DIY project that went to waste.  


43 guests plus bride and groom.... ;)
