Two very independant people that enjoy being together. Will said it best when he said "I like to be alone and I finally found someone who likes to be alone too... next to me"

The girls are wearing this Alfred Angelo dress in black and white. We're adding straps on them. Photo above is missing 1 BM, 1 JrBM and the FG
MOH- Monica- College friend and roommate. We are "growing up" together. Now we share receipes and talk about decorating our homes... I don't know where I'd be without her. I thank God for her friendship everyday. I was one of her BM's almost 3 years ago.
BM- Ann- College friend and roommate. Gives the best advice. Sings like an angel and can make me laugh at the drop of a hate.
BM- Rachel- College friend. The kindest person I've ever met... is an excellent nurse... was one of her BM's 1.5 years ago
BM-Kim- High school friend, sister of the bride- very generous and thoughtful. fellow teacher.
Here's what my Jr. Bridesmaid is wearing. My sister will be 11 so she's almost more flower girl than Jr. BM...
black and white with yellow accents (sunflowers etc.)
We're going to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for our honeymoon. I'm excited to surf, have a 3 hour massage and possibly convince to FI to go ziplining!
Flowers! So I have struggled with flowers for a long time.. I wanted sunflowers but they seemed too casual for a black/white wedding. Finally, I decided I didn't care and that the pop of color would go a long way. I'm having pomanders line the aisle for the ceremony and my FG carry a smaller version. I will be using silk flowers and DIYing them.
I will be adding polka dotted ribbon.
trial 1: the lillies are out of control. I need to move them but otherwise, these are my flowers. BMs will just have sunflowers in theirs. Not sure about the wrap yet. BM will have initial monogram charms that I DIY'ed too.
Will have a single sunflower (smaller version) for a boutineer and will have polka dot wrap like this
We have rings! I don't have a picture of my band... but it will be the same chanel set diamonds matching my E-ring. Below are some pictures of my ring that I took waiting for our Epix... I should have had my ring polished before hand!
FI decided to go with "knife edge" for his ring.

I love all things monogrammed so I'm having my dinner napkins monogrammed. To save time and $, we're only going to monogram them with a "D" My aunt is embroidering them for me. I want special ones for the head table that say "bride," "groom" etc.
Here's some inspiration...
