My Engagement Ring
My Wedding Bands
I have a picture of my dress with ME IN IT below.
Badgley Mischka- Elia Platforms
I have changed my shoes for the night to these purple Eruo Soft Shoes
They are SUPER comfy and will match the girls shoes.
The sash that is not shown will be in the color of Sangria.
Maid of Honor's Dress
Mother Of The Bride's Dress
But in black
Our Save The Date Logo
I designed the STD myself
I typed out and printed all of the invitations
<---- MOH receiving
<--- Invitation op
ened up and laid out
This a photoshopped version of our cake. It will be 3 Tier- buttercream- sunflowers and a Sangria colored ribbon around each tier.
I made the ribbon myself and took off the flowers- I think it matched the feel of the cake topper perfectly!
Our Cake Topper
The Joker and Harley Quinn <3
I wrote the little sign which reads "Just Married D heart T"
Our Signature Drinks
We have 3 holiday inspired drinks. 1st Red Velvet Cake 2nd Pumpkin Pie 3rd Apple Pie
And they taste DELISH!
Next to each drink I posted our personal signs that I have made up that will go in each frame next to the corresponding drink.
::sigh:: I made all the signs for the drinks and the photog was SO busy shooting us she did NOT get a photo of the sig drinks ::cries:: Everyone who had them said they were delish!
Our Framed Events
I am displaying 3 frames at the reception. 2 frames will have our birthdays and the last one will have our wedding date.
FI's birthday is February 2nd, so I listed all of the events that occured on February 2nd and celebrity birthdates. I also wrote down which events took place in 1978- the year he was born.
My birthday is November 6th, so I went ahead and followed the same format from above. For the year partI put 1984 since that was the year I was born.
We are getting married on November 5th, so I again followed the same format as above and this time for the year part I put 2011. I think it would be a great conversation piece for the wedding.
Our Thumbprint Guestbook Tree
I made this myself, and I will be sending it to Staples to be printed on a 17" x 24" poster board.
< ---- Full size
My MOH made the origrami birds :)
Inside Cocktail Hour
The Reception Area
I was having trouble meeting normal men so I decided to take the online dating approach and search for someone I thought would be perfect for me. I went on a site, saw Tom's profile and just knew that he was made for me. After 3 dates I moved in with him and we started talking about marriage shortly after- our proposal story is below!
Our wedding date is November 5th 2011
24 can't make it.. LAME!
ALL have responded!
RSVP Date October 5, 2011
