Well after much debate we decided on and ordered the bridesmaid dresses. It came down to my top 2 favorites but once we saw them both next to my dress we realized the tea length dress looked better. I'm very excited and know all my girls will look great in this dress. They are on their own for the shoes (they just have to be gold) since it's hard to find one pair of shoes to please 6 different girls.

I got my hoodie from Victoria's Secret to wear the morning of the wedding while I'm getting my hair and make-up done. I'm not sure what I'm going to wear with it but I'm thinking of getting white shorts and white capri sweat pants. October in Pennsylvania can be hot, warm or cold so I want to be prepared.

I actually came across these while looking at fellow PW bride Beatie's profile. Chuck is a guitar nut and plays in a band so I know he'll like these.

Also I am going to surprise Chuck with a groom's cake at the rehearsal dinner. The picture below is what it is going to look like except Chuck's will be green to match his guitar.

My last gift is a caricature of Chuck and I along with our pets. I'm going to display it on the gift table so he'll see it as soon as we walk into the room. I looked everywhere for someone to do this and could only find one person that could do it the weekend before the wedding and I really didn't want to wait till the last minute. I posted on the forum here about it and fellow PW bride Mrs.Mac posted that she does them. She sent me pictures of her work and I sent her pics of us, the pets, and the castle in Disney World since that is where we are going for our honeymoon. She was fantastic with sending me pictures of everything and emailing me. She should be mailing me the caricature today so I've only seen it from the pictures she has sent me. I love it and can't wait for Chuck to see it.
