I'm soooooooooooo excited & I can't wait until our Rehearsal.  The FMIL is hosting a Fancy Cocktail Rehearsal Soiree at Bogie's Lounge & Bar inside the beautiful Westlake Village Inn.  We'll be enjoying this awesome private cabana inside this cool nightclub that overlooks a beautiful lake =)

The Fiance & I decided to do a lil RD Dress shopping and look what I found!!!!!!  She's hanging in my closet as we speak and I can't stop looking at her.  GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!  I can't wait to wear her!  I'm thinking about wearing it for my epix too.  It totally reminds me of the scene in My Fair Lady when Audrey Hepburn has that black & white dress on at the races =)

What do you think?!

We wanted something pretty and versatile that fit with our theme for our placecards.  So we found these amazing ornate frames that'll do the trick! 

We'll be painting these 3 frames black and the shapes will indicate the different entree selections for our guests =) The guests names will be written inside on cardstock along with their Table Number =)

Here's a potential mock up of one of the finished products =)

Best of all, these frames will double as placecards and a frame to house the guests' favorite photobooth pic =)  We're having to hand paint every single one because of all the nooks and crannies...here's hoping they appreciate it =) It truly is a Labor of Love =) 

Sooooo, we're debating whether or not we should have them lined up on the corner of the white bar at our reception:

Or if we should do a cool seating chart placed inside this large ornate frame like this and have the mini placecard frames already on the tables at each person's placesetting:

So in my search for the perfect Wedding Cake...we have been toying with the idea of having a Nightmare Before Christmas Cake.  Our wedding will be a combination of Glossy Black Goodness with Damask and a touch of Fuschia for a pop of color =) ...and we'll have a very subtle hint of Nightmare Before Christmas throughout.

Sooooooo...we're torn with the idea of doing a Damask type cake or a Nightmare Before Christmas themed cake. We don't want anything cheesy...but something very tasteful. Well....we found these three amazing cakes!!!

At first you may think it's a lil morbid...but my family knows we're huge Nighmare Before Christmas fans so I don't think they would find it out of the ordinary for us at all =)

The baker we've been talking with said she could also try to do a mixture of damask with the Nightmare B4 Xmas theme...Check out the Damask Jack Skellington print I sent her for reference =) I also love the black & white silhouetted version of Jack & Sally =)

We love the idea of having a Ring Warming Ceremony. During the service, your rings are passed around to all of your guests. Each guest holds the rings briefly, while silently saying a blessing or wish for your union. This ritual is ideal for small ceremonies, and can be a great way to include your guests in the service.

However we were a lil concerned about the rings getting dropped. Sooooooooooo we decided to use my Nightmare Before Christmas Ring Box to house our Wedding Bands. It originally came with two rings inside of it that read "We're simply meant to be"...and all around the box it says "For it is plain as anyone can see, we're simply meant to be". We'll be keeping these rings as "right hand rings" =)

Due to the size of our wedding, we will have a modified version of this ceremony in that the box will be passed around to our Wedding Party and a few select members of our family...otherwise we'll be waiting for the rings to make the rounds forever!!! =P

Here is our Nightmare Before Christmas Ring Box:
