I just wanted to shout out to Kelly on her big day and hope that it is blessed! Her beautiful fuschi...
Its been a long time! Checking in!
Hey ladies, its futuremrsvince!! :D
Long time no talk!!! Well its been 6 months since the wedding and married life has been great. I hope everyone on WBC is doing great. I don't really comment anymore but every once in a while, I read your posts :).
Our wedding planners featured us in their most recent blog and it brought back the most wonderful memories of our wedding. I still think that hiring Embellished Affairs for my day of wedding coordinators was THE best investment I made!
Check it out:
Embellished Affairs Blog
So FINALLY I got my pro-pics!! The file size is HUGE for each pic so I selected 141 of the 1,077 total pics that we have to upload and share with you all!

Our Thank You Pic
Long time no talk!! Sorry I have been m.i.a. lately!! I am still trying to learn how to balance my life as a newlywed :D.
So our pro-pics are finally done! She uploaded all of them online and they look great. We are waiting for her to send us the DVD of all our pics in high resolution, then I will upload the best ones on here (there are 1,077 pictures!). The DVD should be here any day now.
But until then, she sent us the picture we are using for our thank you cards. I ordered these as postcards (100 FREE from Vistaprint) with this picture on the front and our monogram on the back. Even though they are "officially" postcards they will still go into envelopes.
Ask a Question
TWO PART POST:
1. Roll Call: Are you a WBC wife? WBC should totally make a WBC Wives section like how TK has "The Nest". I'm not ready to leave WBC! And I need lots of 'wife' advice :).
2. What was the most difficult thing for you to get adjusted to as a wife?
Vince and I didn't live together before we got married. I lived for 3 years alone like a bachelorette so I seriously thought I was going to have issues adjusting to being a wife.
We're only a week and a half in, but surprisingly, my wife instincts have automatically kicked in (so far :). No real issues adjusting yet. I'm sure we'll run into some kinks down the road but so far, it hasn't been as hard as I thought :). It has been interesting meshing our lives together. The hardest part so far has been remembering my new name :D.
What about you ladies?
The Mother of All Must-Have Shots List :D
Okay ladies, here is the list I compiled from various websites, other brides, and my own personal requests that I used for my wedding day.
I can't stress enough how important it is to have a list like this with a timeframe associated with it. We were able to stay on schedule the entire day and nothing was missed!!
A lot of shots are specific to my venue and my family so add, delete, and alter where needed.

Futuremrsvince is officially Mrs. Vince!!! :D
So my "husband" and I (LOVE saying that!!) are in AC on our mini-moon. He is taking a nap so I thought I'd come on really quickly and post a few of our non-pro pics for my girls!
The day was FABULOUS!! The weather could not have been more perfect!! Of course there were a few snags but nothing huge. Overall it was a gorgeous day and I couldn't have been more happy! Here is a slideshow of some of the pics our guests took at the wedding:
This is it!!
Today is the BIG day!!
My wedding countdown now says "It's TODAY!!". Woo-hoo!!!! I can't believe it! It came up so soon!
Yesterday was so busy. Thank God the diamond I lost in my engagement ring was replaced and it arrived at 1 pm yesterday. Just in time!! We didn't think it would get here in time for the wedding.
I know today I am going to be a mess because I was crying at the rehearsal yesterday LOL.
Mother nature came to give me her "gift" yesterday so that sucks but I am determined NOT to let it ruin my day!!! I will just be making FREQUENT bathroom visits hahaha. TMI I know but you ladies are my sisters now :).
Anyway I just wanted to thank all of you for all of your support. You ladies have been AMAZING and INSPIRATIONAL!!!! I will be back with pics asap!!!
Love ya much!!
Ask a Question
HELP! What are you giving your FH on your wedding day?!?
Okay so Vince and I agreed we weren't going to exchange gifts to save money!! But he is totally doing something sneaky!
I just talked to my sister and apparently she is on some secret 'mission' lol. I don't know what he is up to but now I want to get him something!
I was going to give him a card and write a special message in it but I'd like to give him something else really meaningful.
I have 1 day!!!! Any ideas????
