Hello my name is Corina and this is all very new to me and I'm definitely not very good with words but here it goes anyways.I meet my soon to be husband at work as he was delivering some charts one day to my work site I turned my chair around and we meet eye to eye and when I seen those big GREEN eyes I was like a lil girl in the candy store literally lol.As he stood up I didn't know what to say except for "you have beautiful eyes" and he complimented me back on my long hair then he left immediately like I scared him lol but later that day I received a call at work from him asking me if he could have my number so he could take me out sometime and of course I said yes and the rest is history.We have been engaged for 4 yrs. and together for 5 yrs. total. The reason why its been such a long period of time is we wanted to really make sure this was going to be a life long marriage and we wanted to spend much needed time to really get to know each other being that I have a 9 yr. old son from a previous relationship that didn't work out and I always said one day when I find MR. RIGHT the one and only man I will take vowels in front of GOD with I wanted to take my time.
So this is how it all went down ! I was at work yet again lol and my door opens and there is my MAN at the door with flowers in his hand .Now this is nothing new to me because he's a very romantic kind of guy which is something I TRULY love about him so I really didn't think much about it except that he was being the romantic person he normally is but then he dropped to one knee and asked me if I would marry him ???? OF COURSE I SAID YES but I was in total shock I didn't expect it at all :) Since the day I meet him nothing has changed hes still the same romantic affectionate man and now its time to finally TIE THE KNOT !! YIPEEEE
These are my save the date magnets now there not professional .The picture was picked from our pics on a trip to disneyland and its totally us ! I bought the magnets at michaels craft store for 8 bucks and my computer tech hubby printed them very cheap and easy and not a pocket breaker :)
Since i was young I have always loved the whole Bollywood Theme I love the vibrant colors,beading,and just over the top decor.However I am 100% mexican and my soon to be Hubby is spanish and italian lol and maybe people think were CRAZY but were going with it right down to the cake topper lol ! and here there are by the way

Ok so since we have been engaged for awhile all along the way I have picked up alot of things as far as Decor. My mom aways tells me to stop buying so much but I cant help it the minute i see anything that fits into my theme i MUST have it lol. Granted I have found alot of GOOD things at the Salvation Army thrift store ! YES the thrift store .My fiance and I love love love going on the weekends to look around.As soon as we walk through the door he gives me a kiss and off we go in different directions lol to look for treasures ;p so a few things and i mean just a few things that i have picked up along the way are these :favors-pouch with mirror inside for 99 cents

This is my mom and she will be my MAID OF HONOR :) we took this picture after a bridal show we went to so much FUN ! Iasked my mom to be my maid of honor by setting a card with some flowers on her porch. I rang the doorbell and took off lol. Me and my soon to be hubby parked down the street and when she called crying saying yes we came back and had dinner together. I love my MAMA LOL.
Here is my Matron Of Honor Amy she is my sister in law and a friend I asked her on christmas day .I put a card and two glasses of wine next to it in her kitchen so when she walked back in she found it .She came out of the kitchen crying and we hugged and celebrated over the glass of wine .She is very special to me and I have known her since I was 10 yrs. old she was my brothers high school sweetheart and I'm HAPPY to have her as part of the wedding.
My honey's BEST MAN is my son !!!!! l LOVE MY BOYS....
We will be getting married at Barona Casino in east county it is a very nice area located in the mountains and very quiet and beautiful.It cost us $400 dollars to book this chapel and the price was a steal ! and right behind the chapel is a beautiful lake .The ceremony itself i wanted to keep really light and fresh since there will be so much color going on at our reception.
This is the front of the chapel
My mother A.K.A MAID OF HONOR made these its a ivory feather with silk ivory roses and a splash of fuschia orchid in the middle i love love love these.These will be hung on the pews at the ceremony .
So this was a new project i gave my soon to be HUBBY since he is a computer WIZ lol and i love them i will place them in a basket at the chapel so as people leave they can take one and listen to it on the way to the reception :) This is our example CD so we are gonna tweek it a bit but overall i am happy with it.
I made these tears of joy packets and they have tissue inside them for the ceremony and they will be placed in a gold box at the chapel.
I love love love my ring pillow which my dog gizmo will be wearing on his back :) i bought it on etsy for 39.00 bucks and well worth it ! the shop on etsy is called weddings and such. The pillow will go perfect with feathers for the pews at the ceremony.
So I kind of left this job up to my mom and I had input TO some what lol but she came up with this its real simple and doesnt break the budget!!!! she still wants to add maybe some fabric around the top with jewels or something to that effect ? we wont be using the orange,gold one after all just the pink and purple and we will be putting a clear LED light in there to brighten it up .
This dress was my inspiration DRESS i love it the color and all and she attached a SAREE to the side of the dress which was unique :) I hopefully want to do the same to my dress I am just a little scared lol
This is my dress I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT and i got a great deal $399 and my mom bought it for me and paid it off so that's another thing off the list YIPEEEE !!!
MY SOMETHING BLUE .... bought off ETSY love her work
I will be having a cigar table I came up with the idea from Jaryce21's biography which by the way you must check out because she definetly has some great ideas and knows how to put together a beautiful wedding .Being that i have many smokers in my family it would fit perfect! I will be using more black and mild cigars being that price wise it fits my budget better but i will also buy some good quality cigars for the older crowd.I just received my matches and I am very happy with them .I made a example mock up of what I will have on the cigar table i still need some other accent pieces and I will put gum in a small glass vase for those who want fresh breath after a smoke .The brass container i will put sand in for the butts.
My mom made this birdcage for the reception to put cards in :)
we finally ordered the bridesmaids dresses yipeeeeee we should get them the first week in september my Maid of honor's dress(left) will be Fushia with a purple sash and my Matron of Honor's dress will be purple with a Fushia sash.My flower girl is my niece and this was the closest we could get to looking like my dress her dress will be Ivory with a fuschia sash for around the waist.
Here is the finished product of the dress I'm very happy with how it turned out and the color.
