Our wedding will take place in a barn setting and be western theme. I often think it's strange that I do not like the burlap and lace that is often associated with the whole western barn weddings. No where will I have lace or burlap just isn't my style. There will be horse shoes, hats, boots, and candles galore. I have our invitations being done now. I am excited to see how they turn out.
Although I had my heart set on a certain photographer. I have decided to use my cousin. She is doing our wedding for $500. She is a photographer and takes amazing photos. I am happy with this choice. It saves us $1500

Not sure if I will stay with my original hair idea or not. All I really want to have done is controlled curls. I was blessed with red hair (at least people tell me it's a blessing). My hair is naturally curly and if I do nothing with it it's frizzy and has a mind of it's own. I tend to straighten my hair alot. When it's straightened my hair is to my waist. If I leave it natural it's about 8 inches above my waist.
The longer it gets the more natural curl comes out of it. I know I want to wear my hair mostly down and curly. So I have gathered some inspiration photos to show what I want. I will not use the flowers. I do plan to use Crystal pins though you can twist in your hair.
I am planning a new wedding with someone new but I still LOVE this dress so I am still giong to go with this dress.
Today I got some awesome news. I am now part of the Pink Hart Team. I just srubled across PW one days and I have been hooked ever since. If I can be of any help at all please let me know. I am still in the planning stages of my own wedding and I love every minute of it.
