Hair style:

Something simple.  Plus I want to look like me, and I regularly pull my hair back, so something like this...

I didn't love my first hair trial, although, as it turns out, it didn't matter because the stylist left the salon and couldn't do my hair on our wedding day anyway.  Here are the pics from the "complimentary" trial with the new stylist.  I love her and what she did!  This is at the end of the day after, wearing a sweater, scarf and jacket, so some bits have fallen out (and I've randomly stuck them back in)--but it was beautiful!

Though I don't have the flower yet, she's going to place it in the "blank" spot on the right, behind my ear.

The day of...

I can't say enough how much I loved my hair.  Here are various angles of it...

Flower

I have been through umpteen options for my hair piece.  First I made a flower, it was too white.  Then I dabbled with a large tulle pouf, too large.  The smaller pouf just didn't do it for me.  So I decided to bite the big one, with less than four weeks to the wedding, and have one made on etsy.

 

Here it is!!

This has arrived (with a week and a half left)  I love it!!  It's from minelolly on etsy!

 

Makeup:

I rarely wear makeup, and when I do it's just eyeshadow and mascara.  But, here's what I'm thinking for the day, but not so pink on the eye...more gold/bronze.

RAIN!  You never know, it's November. Plus, it rained on this day last November.  Our photogs are awesome, they've already said that they have umbrellas, and we are going out to take pics regardless of the weather.  I love some of those rain shots...

If the forecast calls for photo 1

So I'm thinking I may be a two shoe bride (well, shoes and galoshes!).

Ceremony:

Loving this chinese lantern idea, instead of pomanders.

Ceremony photo 1Ceremony photo 2

I purchased green and brown ones from MizBiz.  The brown ones will mark the first two reserved rows for the ceremony, then I'll alternate green down the aisle (although not too sure how it will look).  Both will be tied with turquoise ribbon.

Processional:

I'm so Glad - Royal Wood

We are on our way
It might be a hard way
But as long as I'm with you
Yes we are on our way
And it may be in harm's way
But as long as I'm with you

At the end of a long, long day
There is not much more to say then love
I'm so glad I met you

We may feel like folding
But as long as love is holding
The hands of me and you
The waves can be raging
For together we'll be aging
And as long as I'm with you

At the end of a long, long day
There is not much more to say then love
I'm so glad I met you

So winds may be blowing
For surely we'll be knowing
That as long as I'm with you

At the end of a long, long day
There is not much more to say
Yes at the end of a long, long day
There is not much more to say then love
I'm so glad I met you...

 

Signing of the register:

My lovely friend has agreed sing: "The Luckiest" by Ben Fold Five

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

What if I'd been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?

And in a white sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you

Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest

 

Recessional:

Stevie Wonder-For once in my Life

For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Oooh Someone warm like you
Would make my dream come true

Yeah yeah yeah

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore

For once, I can say, this is mine, you can't take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me

HE He He Hey yeah
ooh baby ooh baby

For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore

For once, I can say, this is mine, you can't take it
Long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me

For once in my life
Yeah Somebody like my
Ooh baby
