WEDDING DATE:

Nov 07, 2014

Pharrell's song "Happy" pretty much sums up how I feel. I am a fun, creative, loving mother, daughter, sister, friend, and bride-to-be! I am planning my November 2014 nuptials to the man of my dreams whom I've known since middle school! After 18 years of knowing each other and 8 years of dating, we are finally making it OFFICIAL! #teamtoombs

PW has become an obsession of mine!!! <3 My FI knows exactly what I am doing whenever he steps foot into the office. Says they are going to kick me off of the site I am on here so much. I read on one of the forums that a Mrs. misses planning her wedding and that since she has gotten married, about 95% of her time has been freed up. That was cute as I too will be in the same boat. It is addictive and I wanted to thank all of you lovely Mrs. and Brides to Be that have been an inspiration to me. I have learned so many new things and come across so many new ideas. I have been a DIY bride all along but I have been inspired by you all to venture out a little further and save us some $$$$$.... Why pay for someone else to do it when I can and I don't mind taking the time to do it and add that personal spark! Some of the ladies that have inspired me whether it was a totally new idea, advice, or I saw something that would take my creativity further are: {I'm more than certain that this list will grow more and more over these last 6 1/2 months to go}

I wanted something different for a guest book rather than guests just sign your name and go...I stumbled upon http://www.elegantlyboundbooks.com and had a book custom made to my liking-similar to this

 

Sign here please GuestBook photo 1

 

Sign here please GuestBook photo 2

It was custom made to have one page per guest and it asks customized questions such as:

Name (s)

How do you know Bride/or Groom?

Where did you travel from?

Special wishes or advice for the newlyweds?

Memories for this day...What would you like the bride and groom to remember most about
this day?

 

***UPDATE**** October 1, 2010

Our custom made guest book finally arrived!!!

I am wearing my hair up as I don't think it will look to attarctive at the reception when I start dancing and getting sweaty with my hair plastered to my face and body. LOL

Besides that, {wink} I have come across a lot of nice updos that I love since I will be wearing a handband like this:

Elegant Bridal Satin Ribbon Headband with Swarovski Crystals & Pearls

 

Loving these styles:

I am such a DIY bride. I love being able to create something that will mesh with my personality and is made just for me.

 

http://www.cardsandpockets.com/ is the best site I have seen thus far in my search of pre cut cardstock and pocket envelopes...

 

Here are some of my invitation inspirations...
