For the Ladies:
My beautiful bridesmaids will be getting these tote bags from Etsy
And inside there will be a waffle weave embrodieried cosmetic bag filled with sample sizes of the makeup they will be wearing the day of the wedding, a grey satin robe from Victoria's Secret that they will wear when getting ready, a bridesmaid's survival kit, photo of a favorite memory of the two of us and a thank you card
For the gentlemen:
The guys will be getting these cigar boxes also from Etsy
Inside will be a pair of customized cufflinks, hip flask, the tie and socks they will be wearing on the wedding day and a thank you card.
For the little ones:
Still haven't figured out what to get for the flower girl and ring bearer :/

Inspiration for their attire
Bouquet inspiration for the bridesmaids
Inspiration for the groomsmen
So I'm starting to rethink my color scheme, I'm really into the peacock theme (I just mainly love the colors) and have always loved the colors in the movie Aladdin... So after countless hours of reading blogs, looking at pictures for information, and tearing out pages from magazines, I think I have found my perfect color scheme. Rose, charcoal grey, and plum :)
Also I want to change my wedding venue, I think it would be awesome to get married at the zoo in my home town.
Although Ryan and I aren't going to be doing E-pics, I couldn't help but fall in love with these, maybe inspire some of you awesome PW ladies :)
NOTE: If I used one of your photos please message me so I can credit you, thanks :)
I love how they incorporated their dog in this This one makes me miss Ryan :( LOL

After much deliberation, Ryan and I decided to elope in Vegas before his deployment. It was such an awesome experience, we did the drive through wedding...too much fun! <3
