So I have chosen our Flowergirl and Ring bearer and I couldn't be happier. There are my cousins who I absolutely adore! They're also Brother and Sister.

Here is our Flowergirl & I this past Easter! She's pretty much my Best Friend (Aside from FI)

Here is our Ring Bearer. He is the best Big Brother out there. He has such a huge heart and I love him!

I am also considering their younger brother to be a Ring Bearer as well but we'll see cause he's a handful!

I found THE Dress! YAY! I'm so excited! It is super comfortable and I can't wait to finally put her on for the big day! I'm also considering putting a Sweatheart neckline, I hope I'm able to! I don't have any pictures of me in it yet but hopefully at me fitting I will!
