Say Yes to the Dress – Part V

Jan
23

This is my last post on my dress…so you know what that means…I FOUND ONE! My last post left off with me leaving the bridal shop in Alexandria primarily due to the fact that the dress just didn’t feel right and I felt like it looked a little cheap. I made an appointment with a shop in Richmond and had to drive down for the day to prayerfully find my wedding dress.

Happy New Year!

Home is where the Heart is.

Time has flown by and so have the holidays! Here we are in 2012 with less than 5 months to go until the wedding, eek!!! It seems like we just got engaged and now we’re preparing for various details of our big day.

I had such big plans for my holiday hiatus from work and school, instead I ended up staying up late and sleeping in even later which was priceless now that I look back.

The one productive thing I did do was check out two bridal shower venues. One that my aunt suggested (thanks Auntie :)) and the second was suggested by MOH Erika 😀 Now that preparations have started for the bridal shower & bachelorette, May seems right around the corner.

So if you haven’t gotten your passport yet – order that, if you haven’t called/emailed August – please do so, and if you haven’t commented on a post yet – do it! What are you waiting for?!

Back Soon

So after a brief hiatus, I’m back! I had finals for grad school and had to buckle down and focus. Now that those are successfully out of the way, I have lots of updates to share including: Say Yes to the Dress Part V, Bridesmaid Day, and the Ever Continuing Saga that is Hiring an Event Coordinator.

Thankful

I am thankful for so much this year. Among the things I’m thankful for are the gift of salvation, my family, Daniel, my friends, my health, my job, and I could go on and on. One thing that’s new is that this year I have a fiancé. Even though wedding planning can be extremely overwhelming at times, I’m thankful to be planning our wedding and to have Daniel’s help during the planning process.

Dude, Will you be my Groomsman?

Nov

We finally have groomsmen! Well, they finally know who they are and have all accepted. Daniel wanted to do something special to ask his groomsmen instead of the traditional phone call. We finally decided on the idea of a customized beer bottle. Daniel went to total wine to shop for beer bottles and returned no less than an hour later with 4 different bottles! He had very specific requirements for the beer bottle: 1) the top had to be nice (no bottle caps), 2) the beer had to be larger than the normal 12 oz. size, and 3) the beer top had to coordinate with our wedding colors. In case you haven’t noticed, this was very serious 🙂
