My uncle actually told me about a wedding he went to where they had a photo booth and as soon as he did I wanted one. Since we had plenty of time before the wedding I pushed it aside and figured I would look for one later. I then came across Festive Fotobooths at a bridal show with my mom and sister. We booked them the week later and are really excited about it. We haven't told anyone about it (although my bridesmaids know) and we are hoping it will be a nice surprise and that all of our guests will enjoy it. The pictures from the booth will also tie into our guest book which we are hoping to have next to it so that everyone can add a copy of their pictures as well as a message to us. I decided to not buy a guest book from Festive since they were a little expensive and I'm hoping to find one that doesn't cost as much or make one myself.

I was very lucky that I found 4-5 dresses that I really liked when I went dress shopping for the first time.  I thought I wasn't going to find anything. Out of the group I liked there was one that stood out the most for me. I didn't order my dress that day since I hasn't definitely decided but the more I thought about it the more I couldn't imagine walking down the aisle in anything else. It's funny because all of the dresses I had looked at on line didn't look right on me and the one I ended up choosing was something I never would of picked out on my own. I never wanted to wear a veil since it isn't very me but I really felt like my dress needed a little something extra for the church and some pictures so I ended up with a cathedral length veil. I love it and I think it really adds some drama to my dress.

Here are two pictures from my final fitting. I forgot my camera so they are from my mom's cell phone. I'm so happy with the way the dress turned out and I love the bustle. I can't wait for Chuck to see me in it!

Here are our save the dates. I actually saw fellow Project Wedding bride kohler44's save the dates and loved them so we used that as a template for ours (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right?) I've never been very good at making things myself but I'm really happy with how these turned out and can't wait to try something else.
