This was one of the toughest things for me to figure out. I looooove wearing heels with 5 inch stilletos, however FI does not, especially because that makes me as tall as he is. He asked me to tone it down a notch so there will be a height difference in pictures. Boy was that hard to find some cute shoes with a 3 inch heel. A fellow PW posted some purple beauties and I fell in love, only to find out they didn't have my size! I searched and searched and searched and wasn't able to find any. I placed my name on an email list to be notified if they received my size in and went on my way to kiss the shoes goodbye. 2 weeks later, I got a random email! WOO HOO! So I placed an order for my purple beauties.
For the reception, I plan to kick my heels off and wear my boots! I want to be comfortable, and pay respect to being a Texan by wearing my boots with pride!
I'm not much of a flower person....so the only flowers will be in the bouquets and boutonnieres. I wanted something to pop for the centerpieces and fell in love with the water beads lit up with lights look. The venue provides square mirrors on each table so we will be places the centerpieces on the mirror. A coworker was recently married and she is letting me borrow 150 votive candles. I will use the vase below in the center, then have 4 candles underneath. Since it will be darker during the reception, they will really glow!
went into this day thinking it was going to be a disaster. Nobody was going to agree, they would hate the choices I picked, and the color purple would be vetoed. I have a great group of gals because they all decided and agreed on the same dress! They also goofed around a bit and tried on some of their choices...which were quickly told NO! LOL
But they all decided on this dress, in this color "viola"
I finally got the proof of these babies. My wonderful photgrapher Lindsey Michelle Photography (who is also married to one of FI's groomsmen) designed these. I am approving and sending them off to the printer today! This makes it real right?! :)
Wedding Invitation (I will be adding rhinestones to the tips of the flourishes)
RSVP postcards (we used postcards so we wouldn't have to purchase envelopes and the postage is cheaper!)
When I received the invites, I started to bedazzle them with rhinestones:
And here they go out the door!
My wonderful MOH has really went above and beyond to make me feel like the only bride in the world! My shower is February 11th and here are the invitations that were sent out! This was also the first time I got to see the theme of my shower because the entire thing is a surprise! Lime green and black and white damask!
Here I am cutting the cardstock to fit perfectly and hold the magnets (Sophie is clearly not interested in any of this)
FI concentrating on making sure the lables were straight (I yelled at him because they were crooked! hahah)
Taking a break to smile (hahah Jersey Shore is on the in the background..AND if you look on the TV, that is our baseball "guestbook"!)
