I've finally finished shopping for my bridesmaids and wanted to post what I got them all.
First I got them each a Vera Bradley make-up bag in a pattern I thought each would like.
Next I got them all a pair of flip flops from Old Navy that they can put on at the reception.
Then I got them all a bright pink pashmina from Peach Couture to use anytime during the wedding if it gets a little chilly (especially during picture time).
Finally I ordered matching earrings for all of my girls from Premier Jewelry. My MOH will also be getting the bracelet that goes with the earrings as a little something extra for being my second in command. I don't have a picture of either of these but I will take some as soon as they are delivered.
Our rehearsal dinner is going to be held at Mike's Bar and Grill which is where my bridal shower was. We've bought invitations from a local stationary store and will be printing them up this weekend. Also I went dress shopping last night and found my dress for the rehearsal. Sorry this picture isn't good but it's from a camera phone. I'll post a good picture soon.
Here are the shoes (my wedding reception shoes as well)
I just found a necklace that I ordered to wear with the dress and shoes. I cannot wait to see it in person!
I know I posted this already but I'll be using my wedding day clutch for the rehearsal as well. I bought it from PW bride jkiss.

This was a hard one to find but after a LONG day of dress shopping my FMIL finally decided on this dress from David's Bridal. While it wasn't my first choice for her it looks great and she seems very happy with it.
I had my shower this past Saturday! It's was a complete surprise (I thought I was going to my sister's graduation party) and it was more than I could have hoped for.

Steve Madden shoes
Here is my original pair of shoes from Steve Madden. They are a 7 1/2 and white satin and the heel is about 4 inches. I've never worn them and decided not to wear them because the color didn't look right with my dress. I'll take the best offer for them. PM me if you are interested.
Thank you parasol (can't ship till November 9th)
A friend of mine is borrowing my thank you parasol for her November 7th wedding so this will not be available to ship until after that. The picture I'm posting is from HMM's bio because I haven't taken a picture of mine yet but it looks exactly the same. I'm taking best offer for it so PM me if you are interested.

For the tuxes we chose a classic 2 button Calvin Klein black tux.
Chuck will be wearing a ivory vest and tie to match my dress.
The groomsmen and best man will be wearing a chocolate brown striped tie (I can't find a picture of it) with a black vest. The dads and grandfathers will wear a black vest and tie.
