Okay, so I was VERY productive this weekend so I have lots of posts for today!!! First one up, bo...
Wedding Rings And Jewelry
Got my wedding band!
So here it is! I'm in love with it! I originally just had one band that I got when we got married real quick before he was deployed. But now that were having our actual wedding I wanted a wrap. One band for when we legally got married and the other to symbolize our actual wedding. Cant wait to wear it in July! I never posted a picture of my engagement ring. Its a three stone princess cut ring with the diamonds turned.
I got my veil today!
So I have had quite the veil drama. The cheapest veil I could find at the place I got my dress was 200--it had nothing on it, no speical detail or anything so I refused to pay that. I get this bright idea to order one on ebay, not thinking that my dress is diamond white I order a white one, and I wasnt sure of the length I wanted so I got an elbow length. Well needless to say the veil wasnt even close to matching my dress, it was cheap and looked it, and way to short. So I just said whatever i'll wear it for my bachelorette party. Onto my next adventure. I ordered another one off of ebay diamond white this time and a little longer. Got it in the mail with a rip in the bottom of it, and it was too short, she didnt send me the right length. I contact her and tell her about the rip and length and she said it was my fault, I had to have put the hole in it and she wouldnt accept a return--seriously. We went back and forth for about a week and finally she offered me a half refund. Whatever I didnt even feel like dealing with her anymore. So i'm on here looking through some posts and I see one for occanseydesigns.com so I try it. You can custom do everything on it from the type of comb, cut, what you want on it, EVERYTHING! I was so excited I got the Diamond White Shimmer material, on a 3in plastic comb regular cut and 34in long and lightly scattered rhinestones....and its PERFECT! They only took about 2 weeks to get it to me and it was only 58 with shipping! The material is so soft and it falls perfectly! I would definately reccomend them--ebay....not so much!
Ask a Question
Bachelorette Party Dress?
So I need some help on what to wear to my bachelorette party...we were going to do the traditional bride and bridesmaid tank tops but I talk to the girls we all decided to dress up. So what do you guys think of this dress? Also theres a Jessica Mcclintock dress that I love, but its 135 and I dont know if I can spend that! Here is the link, I couldnt upload the picture. Let me know what you guys think! Or since my wedding is fuschia should I wear that color dress? I have no clue--ugh!

My FH is obsessed with Ohio State---our kitchen is even done in OSU ....so I ordered these today and he loves them! I wish it could have been a suprise...but I can't keep suprises lol. Its killing me not to show him my dress! But I won't....I promise lol
Wedding Hair Style
Does anyone have any ideas or pictures for shorter hair styles? I have no clue how I want to do my hair, it's shorter in the back and half way between my chin and shoulders in the front. In desperate need of some ideas. I was just planning on putting it half up, or something. I hate my ears so I want to keep them covered.
Get to know the bride and groom!
How long did you date before you got engaged?
just under 3 years
Did you get the ring you wanted?
Exactly....although I did drill it in his head what I wanted =)
Was the proposal a complete surprise?
Kind of, I knew he had the ring...but i didnt know when he was going to do it. He was getting deployed to kuwait for a year and he wanted to get married before he left so if anything happened to him I would be taken care of. So I knew it was going to be before he left...and now were getting ready to have our actual wedding =)
Do you wish you had a bigger/smaller diamond? If so How big or small?
Um, I love my rings...of course they could always be bigger....maybe a few years down the road.
Did you cry when he proposed?
No...I was shaking...but no crying

So it's been a few short days of a month since my seamstress took my dress, on the 30th will be a month exactly. I called yesturday to see how things were going with my dress because to be honest, i'm terrified she'll steal my dress lol! Paranoid I know, but she looked a hot mess when she came and got it, but she was nice and seemed like she knew what she was doing. Anyway I left a message and she hasnt called back yet! Do I have a reason to be irritated with that? I mean she has to know how stressed I am, and not calling me back about my dress is just adding to it. I figure I'll give her until tuesday and try and call again. So wish me luck!
UPDATE: So I finally got a hold of her today I couldnt wait till tuesday. It should be done by friday she said! I could get the picture to rotate so sorry it's sideways!
My first attempts at DIY...ever!
So the first is my cake box, I noticed everyone else has there envelope slot on the front. Mine is on top....hopefully it works out ok! Second is my gerbera pomander, took forever and sooo many flowers. I still have 10 more to do so the $$ is racking up, but I really wanted them and it was cheaper doing it myself so I can really complain. What do you think? Next project: guest book, and monogram cake topper--wish me luck!
