all dress are
from www.alfredangelo.com except the last two which are www.mbbridal.com
Im thinking I might have my girls choose between 1,5,6, and 7. I dont care if they have different necklines. My girls are all different shapes and sizes my oldest sister who is my Matron of honor will be 40 and my niece will be 16 I feel like they aren't both going to be comfortable in the same dress. Plus my one sister is more busty then a few of my other girls so i dont want her to feel like shes falling out of a dress all night. Im thinking some of the girls can have the netting up around there necks/shoulders and then if some want to do strapless they can!
Lets be friends! Some of my pages are set to private! What are you waiting for, Follow me so you can get in on all the awesomeness inside!
Our date is set for May
23, 2015 (just kidding) NOW my date is May 30, 2015! Im so excited! I love spring and how everything feels so fresh and new what a better time to start a new chapter in our lives! Wed, I am going to look at a venue called "This is it" Hopefully it is "It" the area we live in does not have many venue options and this one is quite beautiful so im hoping the price is right! FI has to work so he cant go with me so Im taking my sister to help me stand my ground! Im getting price info and after I let FI know the details we will decide if its doable or not and then he will go see the venue to make the final decision with me (although he really doesn't care about the details).
I do have one other place Im considering it is a country club and so pretty my sisters mother in law is a member and said she'd help me get in since you have to be a member to be able to have your wedding there. Unfortunatly because it is a private club I cant find any pictures of it online! SO ANNOYING! Ive seen the room once in person but wasnt engaged yet and hadnt been considering it for a wedding so I didnt take a good look at it! Its more vintag looking though!
As weird as this may sound I feel like once we pick a venue everything else will fall into place. If we do this is it I feel like the wedding will be more modern and brighter colors. The country clubs room has a lot of character so i feel like i woudlnt' need uplighting or anything like that to make the room amazing because its already got a lot going on. I feel like the country club id want a more vintage lace dress, where as this is it i'd want a more modern dress! Maybe Im crazy for thinking a room can determin so much (my mom says I am :) ) But thats how I feel!
Here is the link for This Is It make sure you check it out and let me know what you think! http://thisisitjohnstown.com/ (the outside isn't very pretty but i feel like the inside makes up for watch the virtual tour!)
Ill be back with pictures of the country club as soon as i get to check it out in person hopefully thursday!!
Booked my amazing photog on Thursday and put down our deposit! I seriously love her she is so nice and I love her pictures! I have such a great feeling about her she is exactly what I wanted! Oddly enough while we were meeting her FI realized he actual works with her uncle and father! Haha sometimes small towns are nice. My photographer won awards for 12,13 and 14 on the knot which is actually pretty cool! Her website is www.theladyofthelens.com if you wanna check her out! You probably should ;)
To tell the story of our engagement I need to start with some back story of our relationship! I am NOT subtle at all! I have been telling my now FI for over a year I wanted to be engaged! Trevor has been telling me since the day we met he would never propose on a holiday which I hated becasue I love christmas so much and really wanted to be engaged on Christmas. A few weeks before christmas I was of course pestering him about marrying me and he told me that it wouldn't happen until at least feb. He said he was only telling me that so that on christmas day I wouldnt' get my hopes up and be dissapointed when it didn't happen! All week everyone at work and in my family kept saying "Maybe for christmas you will get engaged?" to which I would reply "No, it wont happen till feb."
Christmas eve - Trevor and I both have pretty large familys so holidays are always a ltitle hectic. Christmas Eve I worked till five and we had church for christmas eve service at 6:30 after church we had a party at Trevors aunts house but were going to stop at my moms first. My mom said we didn't have to stop and Trevor kept saying it was ok we should stop. This was the first christmas eve ive ever not spent with my family and FI knew I was a little sad about not spending the night at my moms. Finally I just said no to going to moms and decided we would just go straight to his aunts house. Now I know Trevor was only trying to go to my parents house so he could ask my dad permisson to propose! Instead he had to corner my dad at church and quickly ask him if he could marry me!
Christmas Day- I should start off by saying I am usually NOT a morning person at all! However, I love christmas and luckily I was in such a great, silly mood. I have three older sisters. My one sister lives in maryland and was staying at my moms house with her husband and their two children who are 6 and 1. I desperatly wanted to be at my parents house to see the kids open gifts. To be there in time we had to leave our house at 5:30 so we were up at 5. It was still dark out and Trevor turned on all our christmas lights. He told me I had one gift I had to open at home becuase it was a gag gift and was inapropriate to open in front of people! I sat on the floor and still didn't expect anything as Trevor handed me a huge box. I opened it and there was another box inside of it. Inside of that box was a tin can I opened it and there was Trevors military name tag (last name) I turned around still so confused and trevor was behing me on one knee holding a ring box! He opened the box and asked if i would marry him and I of course said YES! I was shaking so bad Im surprised he could even get the ring on my finger! Ive never been so happy in my life!
After hugging and kissing we realized we needed to get going we stopped and got coffee for everyone and I had to restrain myself from telling the guy behind the counter that I just got ENGAGED! When i walked into my parents house I was holding three cups of coffee so i looked at my mom and said "I think i just got coffee on my hand can you wipe it off" she looked at my hand and got a huge smile on her face! The first thing I said was "did dad tell you" (my three older sisters are all married and when my brothers in law asked my dad my dad told my mom. My mom is my best friend and I wanted to tell her myself) My mom said no dad didnt tell her and hugged me! I then ran upstairs and knocked on my sisters door I told her to hurry up and open the door she opened it just a crack (she was changing and only had a bra on) so i stuck just my hand in the door and heard screaming she yelled "I don't have a shirt on but im hugging you anyways" lol it was so funny! The rest of the day was amazing i got to tell my whole family then we headed to trevors family. Trevor asked me to not tell anyone just see how long it took them to notice. I kept walking back and forth to trevors three cousins who are all about my age and trying to be obvious about my ring but none of them would notice. Id walk back and forth between them and trevor! Finally, one of the cousins noticed and everyone started SCREAMING! Litterally just screaming and clapping it was so wonderful to feel so loved by his family they are some of the most warm, loving people I know and i can not wait to officially be a part of their family!
The day was so wonderful and I could not have asked for anything better! Pictures of my ring will be on shortly!
