@perianjay that makes so much sense and I also want to look myself but I've been practicing my makeup and getting more and more into it over the past year that I think people will expect me to look a little more glam haha thanks for the advice on the dress length. That's helpful!
thanks! I'm so happy with the vow books! I'm excited to use them! I got them on etsy from a seller called HappyJewelrySupplies! They come in different sizes but this was the smallest size!
I was looking online for barefoot sandals that would arrive before we leave but the wedding is a little too close to get them on time. I went shopping on Saturday and bit the bullet and spent $60 on a new pair. I can at least wear these as regular sandals for dinner and what not after the wedding so I think these will work for the ceremony and then I'll change into my fancy ones for the reception!
I also worked on making my welcome packages for everyone. Every package contains a waterproof pouch per person for your phone, 2 custom postcards, a door hanger, and eventually the brochure when I get them reprinted. I'll post a pick when I get the brochure made.
We also bought the groomsmen's gifts! We got a good deal on watches at the watch station (or something like that). They had a deal but 1 get 40% off, buy 2 or more and get 50% off. So we bought 2 watches that were identical and one other for the best man. It was an insane deal! We think they will love them!
I also made a little slip cover for socks for my dad. It says "special socks for a special walk love your little girl". And has 2 pairs is dress socks.
I decided to make one as a surprise for Kyle too! It says "for my handsome groom in case you get cold feet" please note I just noticed handsome was spelt wrong
I'll have to figure out how to fix that.
My bridal shower was yesterday too! Despite feeling sick with a cold it was such a nice event. My sister did an amazing job as per usual. We had about 12 people over and was nice for everyone to get to meet each other, socialize, and enjoy some pink champagne and snacks! I also got lots of wonderful presents even though we said no gifts!
^my sister, grandma, and I.
We are now only 15 days away from saying "I Do", 12 days away from leaving, and 11 days away from our legal ceremony!
