The wedding was a blast and it went by lightening fast! Everything went as scheduled and everyone had a lot of fun. The food was great, the place was amazing and everyone looked so beautiful! Pictures coming soon...
I had my hair and makeup trial with Cindy...she is so cute! We spent 2 hours playing around, talking and came up with a half up do for the hair. For the ceremony my clip would sit in the middle with the veil coming down from the bottom. Then for the reception the veil would come off and I would only use the clip. For the makeup, we have a light smoky eye, pink cheek and it looks like pink lips but it's more of a dark mauve. Excuse the goofy look...hard to keep a straight face with your friend sticking a camera 6 inches from your face!!
And the real thing...
Our rehearsal is set for Thursday, August 28. My dress is Calvin Klein, got it at Marshalls along with the handbag and the shoes are from Target!! It's a white cotton dress with silver detail cutouts at the bottom hem as well as on top.
The rehearsal dinner will follow at Monterey Bay Canners in Oceanside. We will have an open menu and an open bar for ourselves, the bridal party and our immediate family. It should be a small dinner, approx. 16 people, and from 4:30-8:00pm.
FI surprised me by picking out and picking up our cake serving set as well as our toasting flutes. I really like them, he did a GREAT job! He had the serving set engraved with our names and date but he wasn't sure about engraving the glasses. I'm not too sure either, it's something to think about.
They are from the Vera Wang Love Knots collection. Macy's has a ton of cute things to match (china in the same pattern, flatware, picture frames, bud vases, napkin rings and a champagne bucket)!
The serving set and flutes looked perfect on our day...
Just got word that the Bridal Shower will be on Sunday, July 20 and I can't wait. I know it's at 1:00pm and it's going to be Hawaiian themed (since we're honeymooning in Hawaii) so I'm excited to see what the day has to hold!
I have two dresses and I can't decide. It's in the backyard so it's casual, Hawaiian theme still and it's going to be warm out (around 85). Ahhhh, decisions decisions!!
The shower was a lot of fun, my BM Natalie did a great job with help from my Mom and FMIL. The Hawaiian theme was perfect, everyone came in an outfit (no party poopers) and they decorated nicely and the food was soooo good! As you can see, I ended up wearing the more casual of the 2 dresses!
We had leis and bracelets to wear and the favors were scented starfish, seashell and seahorse soaps in organza bags. There was also a bride pillow that had a veil on and played here comes the bride that everyone signed!
We had a hula-hoop contest and I couldn't believe there was a tie between Sarah and my FMIL!!
FMIL was in charge of dessert - we had a cupcake cake...it was really cute and really tasty. Everyone had blue lips at the end of it!
