Originally I bought a dress at Kohls for the rehearsal dinner, it was a Max dress that was on sale for only like $15... well a few weeks ago I was in a small boutique in my town and tried on a calvin Klein dress that I just fell in love with... but it was $150 so I put it back. Well I haven't been able to get that dress out of my head since it fit soooo well, so I thought I would look for it online. I found it but couldnt find anywhere to buy it (but I think I had the style number wrong) I found one that was 95% identical on Overstock so ended up buying it... it is Calvin Klein and made out of the same stuff and looks just about the same (may even be the same who knows)... so here it is ... oh and it was only $82 on overstock!!!! I got the black one so I can wear it again and again!
Its now official! We are good to go on Oct 3rd!!!
We ended up deciding to use fake flowers to do all our florals for the wedding. I couldnt see spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on flowers that I wouldnt be able to enjoy very long since we leave the next day for the HM.
We got tons and tons of flowers when Michaels was having their dollar days sales last month. I think I cleaned out 2 stores and my mom cleared out 2 stores worth of stems! We ended up spending under $150 for everything! (and I think we will have leftovers, to use randomly) The stems were normally $4.99 a stem but marked down for the sale to only $1!!!
Here are the ones I have finished so far (the vases are at my moms so no pics of that yet...)
Bouts (FI will be all blue and everyone else will be the ivory)
Flower Pins for MOB, grandmas (2), and FSIL
Bouquets (Mine will be all blue and the MOH will have the blue and ivory one)
We bought plain glasses at Pier 1 then I added some ribbon and rhinestones. The ribbon tied around the top fo the stem says "Eat drink and be married"
