-I finally found them!
I finally found my shoes for the big day and LOVE them.
I added the I DO bling to the bottom and it looks great.
Yesterday, my sister and I went on an adventure to find reasonably priced dresses for my girls. Since almost all of them are college students, I didn't want to break their bank for a dress to my wedding. I couldn't afford to buy them for all 6 girls. We looked at different bridal boutiques and stores in the mall. After a long search, when we came home we looked on Amazon and found the one.
Its the light blue one and such a great price! It made me feel so much better knowing that I wasn't making them pay over $100 for a dress they'll probably wear once.
All but one have ordered it... I'M SO EXCITED!
Getting this DONE!
I'm going with my mom & MOH tomorrow to find my shoes. We are meeting with the floral shop & looking around for bridesmaids dresses.
I'm super excited to hopefully cross off things on my "to do" list that seems to be getting longer & longer!
I also purchased my hangers today, so I'm going to be hard at work on another DIY project!
All Set :)
Another thing checked off the "to do" list.
We found our wedding photographer! I'm very excited for engagement pictures this fall!
I had a dream last night that my wedding day was a complete disaster... I forgot to get my dress altered. It was falling off & my veil was hideous. I forgot to book my photographer. It was raining...
I've been having dreams like this lately. I really hope they DON'T come true!
Just for Fun

Today, while at work, I got an itch to do something for the wedding. I stopped at Hobby Lobby & came out of the store with everything to create a Card Box. The picture is what I have done so far. I need to go back to the store for more ribbon for the bow on top & some kind of rhinestones for some added detail. I'm happy with the way it is coming along so far!
I'm up for any suggestions that might make it look even better!

No, I laughed. I couldn't believe it!
Was the proposal romantic or creative? Explain how if you'd like.
A little of both. We were at a hockey game, where we first met 5 years ago. He took me out to the car during the intermission, saying he forgot something in his car...I had no idea. He got down on one knee in the parking lot...It was soo cute.

My colors are a brighter blue & light lime green. I am not a flower person, so I have no clue what types of flowers there are. I'm not doing flowers in my centerpieces, but will have bouquets for myself and my girls. If anyone can give me names of flowers that come in greens/blues I'd appreciate it!
