I plan to visit the Regina B showroom in NYC to try on some of these Regina B beauties:

UPDATED 9/24/10

I visited the show room and had a great time playing dress up with Regina and all her pretty jewels.

I tried on lots of options and selected this comb and set of earrings:



The weather can be kinda unpredictable in New Jersey, too.  It should be cool and clear, but we could have an un-seasonably warm day, serious rain showers, and snow is possible, though I doubt it - it only snowed once on that weekend since I have been alive (25 years)!

With that being said I had been drooling over this coat, but the designer no longer makes it, so I'd have to have it made.  I don't think I have enough time to dedicate to this task:

Snowdrop, Aspera Collection, Alicja Eklöw.

It's probably a little too much coat, as I don't think it will be that cold.  So, I'm now considering this fur stole from

My ideas around flowers have shifted as the wedding planning progressed.  I thought I wanted a deep red dramatic bouquet, but when I close my eyes and picture myself as a bride, I only see white.  I want an interesting bouquet, however, and I think it will be achieved by adding dimension with pale shades of gold, peach, pink and purple.

My latest obsession is with warm hued roses:

I love the romantice look of peonies (left photo below from the, but they are not in season in November.  The same look, however, can be achieved with garden roses (right photo below).

Table Numbers

1 - 20

With a picture of Bride and Groom at that age


Place Cards and Escort Cards

These might look adorable as escort cards or place cards.  The scroll easel can be painted antique gold and the top note cards can rest in them with the guests name written on it

I couldn't wait to create my Save-the-Dates from my Engagement Photoshoot! My fiance is skilled with Photoshop so he put together a bunch of designs for us and we selected this one:
