Page in progress.....
The day was October 23, 2010. I will never forget it. I felt like I was literally floating and watching myself. It went by so fast.
1 week before:
We live in Appleton, Wisconsin and our wedding was in Tucson, Arizona. We flew in a week prior to the wedding and boy, did we have our work cut out for us. This whole week was full of projects; favors, centerpieces, unity candle, place card holders etc. I was extremely stressed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Everyone said I was being quiet, acting sick, and thought something was wrong with me. But by Thursday, I was as calm as ever.
All of my bm's have very different personalities and had little arguments amongst each other during a lot of the planning for this wedding. Thursday before the wedding, my girls organized a bachelorette party for me. They all got along and actually LIKE each other now. I am so happy!! It made everything go smoothly. We had so much fun, it was perfect.
I really love Charlize Therons make up. Trial Run is Aug 15th! Cannot wait!
I just had my makeup and hair trial last weekend. I hardly wear makeup so I thought I looked ridiculous at first haha. But I think it is growing on me. AAANd i forgot to take pictures until I got in the car. Very un PW of me.
For hair, I love the flowy waves look. Either all the way up or half way. Here are some styles I like.
And MY hair......
We are really trying to do this whole wedding as budget friendly as possible. I searched millions of invites and I could not believe the prices. I am super shocked what people pay! I assume that a lot of them will be thrown out (thats what I do with wedding invitations) so why spend too much? I found these at Anns Bridal Bargains for .48 cents a piece. We ordered 100 invites, reception cards, and response cards along with 25 extra envelopes and had the return addresses printed. We spent...149.00!! They just came in today!
I also made dinner rehearsal invites on shutterfly.
A florist will be putting together the wedding party flowers. My bouquet will be purple calla lilies and the girls will be carrying white callas. FI will have purple calla and the boys will have white.
For centerpieces I am thinking of ordering in bulk purple orchid stems from Sam's club. We have three cylinder vases these will sit in submerged in water with stones.
