I was planning on renting napkins, but they didn't have any in the right shade of pink so I was going to do black.  But black napkins + black tablecloths = blech. I ended up seeing a fabric that I liked in Downtown LA and just had them made.  This is the final result......

So, we're getting married at Lake Hills Community Church in Laguna Woods.  I love how it's so open and filled with natural light.  Very clean and fresh.  And it's on a lake!

So it seems last minute Christmas shopping does have it's perks.  I was at the Victoria Gardens mall in Rancho Cucamonga with my mom picking up some last minute gifts when I said we should pop in White House Black Market just to see what they had for ideas since my Bridesmaid Dresses would be black.  Lo and Behold I found them!  And at a GNARLY discount no less.  The tag said $178.00 which was marked down to $99.99 and THEN another 40% off THAT because of some special discount thing they have on dresses.  So my lucky ladies will only be paying $64.64. I don't think the model does it justice really.  Those tights kinda kill it for me. Much cuter in person.

(p.s. I'm nixing the flower (which is detachable, hallelujah) and adding a thin cameo pink sash)
