FI and I went to pick out tuxes finally.  Here is what we think we're going with..

For the groom, he'll be in an ivory vest/long tie to match my dress:

At the end of July, my wonderful bridesmaids threw me a fabulous bridal shower and bachelorette weekend.  We combined the two into one weekend to make it easier for people traveling from out of town.  First off was an awesome evening shower at an Italian restaurant.  Good food, wine, and great friends made for such a great night for me!

The next day, my bridesmaids took me to South Coast Winery Resort and Spa in Temecula for an amazing scrub/massage and some lounging poolside.  We also had a great lunch there with more friends that joined up with us and then did some wine tasting...

Later that evening, we headed out for some yummy Mexican food and bar-hopping, karaoke, and mixing with the locals in old town Temecula...

It was such a great time and I was overwhelmed with all the effort and love that my friends and family showed toward making my weekend special.  I'm truly lucky! :)

I had my floral trial with Green Leaf Designs recently.  Shelby did a mock-up of both my tall and short centerpieces and of my bouquet.  Here is a picture of what my actual bouquet will look like on the wedding day...

My mom put together a bathroom basket for the ladies room filled with all the necessities any guest could possibly need should something go wrong during the reception!

I love the look of this makeup.  I'm hoping for a similar look...

My fiance and I went to pick out his ring the other day.  He went with a more modern design with a bit of bling.  His ring is the design below, however his will be in satin, or brushed, platinum rather than the polished design below.  Hey, guys can have a little bling too, right?? :)
