I was going to get my girls a beautiful neckalace, but it was a tad bit pricey so I browed around Etsy and found this:
For the groomsmen: A personalized wine box (FI wanted something different from a mug =P)
We are planning to do a candy buffet as well. We'll have chinese take out boxes for our guests. All I know is I want chocolate and white chocolate covered gummy in there!! It's a must!!!
FI finally picked his ring!! It's a ring from Scott Kay. It's an 8mm ring with a vintage finish and satin center from the Gothic collection. Luckily, his parents will be buying his ring as a gift to him!
As far as my ring, I don't know what to do as to get a wedding band or not. I don't want to take away from my ring by adding another band. We were thinking about stackable rings, so FI can buy me a ring for each anniversary or something. I guess we still have some time to figure it out. =P
I was originally going to go with a photographer I found a loooong time ago, but I'm not sure what happened, but he never got back to me. :( I was bummed out because I really liked his style and especially liked the layouts in the wedding albums. One of my bridesmaid recommended I check out a photographer that her co-worker knew. I gave it a shot and his style was pretty much the one I liked!

We actually booked him a long time ago - sometime in the summer, really. When we met with him, he was real laid back and showed us all his work and they're all so beautiful. I had to book him and make sure he was mine for the day! lol! Once I want something, I make it a mission to get what I want. ><
As for my videographer, he was recommended to me by my makeup artist, Katie B. We met with Daniel Boswell and he's so cool and it's kind of funny cause he and my fiance had the same style/personality. My fiance is pretty picky and particular in what he wants or at least the things he wants...so it was good that someone understood his style. I don't have to worry in that deptartment! I also picked him because his packages are customizable (is that a word? haha) and that allows us to pick and choose what we want rather than a whole package with a bunch of crap I don't want or wish I could substitute. =P He also does a little 5 min clip of the wedding during the reception, which is kind of cool.

Last but not least, the DJ. My wedding planner actually referred Invisible Touch to us. We set up a meeting and met with Victor. WOW this guy is so much fun!!! He has a lot of energy and is really outgoing. He asked us a lot of questions regarding how the wedding will be. We told him our main goal is to have fun really. I had an idea of doing the Thriller dance from the video! But...it would require a lot of practice and that means actually getting everyone together and finding the time TO practice, which is pretty difficult as people are busy. BUT Victor said that he has a guy that will do it, but he gets EVERYONE to do it. So he'll show us the dance step by step and we all follow along! How fun is that?? haha!

Check them all out! :)
So I forgot about the most important item in the wedding: invitations! Duh! How could anyone know about the wedding without an invitation?! *pokes myself* So unfortunately, I don't have a pic of it since my wedding planner is creating them for me. I will post pics once I have it.
Obviously, we're using a black envelope with the same exact ribbon and bling on the centerpiece. The invitation itself will have thet dark, deep purple paper with another layer of shimmery, ivory paper where all the info is going to be printed on. Sad to say, no pics. :(
We are having the most adorable flower girl and it's going to be Chris' cousin's daughter. She's an adorable 2 year old and we're so honored to have her in the wedding! She will be accompanied with my ring bearer dog, Belle! I have her wear a ring bearer pillow or maybe a best pet bow?
