My favors came in and I started assembling them: here are some pics They are 4pk of glass coaster that say "LOVE" I have 180 of them. so I have 90 done, 90 to go!
I am DIY my Invites: they are metallic cranberry pocketfolds with metallic Champagne invitation Mat, and Cream invitations and enclosures with cream envelopes from CardsandPockets.com ( I got an Excellent Deal). The pocketfolds will close with our 2x2 Monogram in Champagne with Cranberry and Brownish/Gold writing. I will be printing invitation and enclosures using chocolate brown ink
I also purchased Champagne metallic 2x4 escort cards. Here are the pics of my journey and a complete mock-up. I will be updating pics until they are finally done and sent out!
My MOH and I have made a Invitation and Favor assembling get together for March 27, and then celebrating with cocktails! So I should have a ton of updates and pics after that!
I have officially finished my BM gifts: I bought them coach wristlets that will match our wedding colors, and their jewelry for the day of.

I want my wedding day make-up to be natural, with tones of champagne, browns, and pinks. I plan on wearing eyelashes on the day of. I have a make-up trial on Feb 16th March 3 (had to be postponed due to snow)
As with the hair above, when I went to the bridal show they were doing free make-up trials too. They were quick trials tho. Here is what the girl did:
I really liked the foundation she used it was a liquid mineral and it was so light! Because it was at a bridal show they did not really ask what we were visioning in terms of colors, they did their own thing to us. The original lipstick and lipliner were to dark (for my taste) so I wiped it down a bit, and she used liquid eyeliner(which i hate) that came out so uneven! But it was free and super quick. It was a very prestigous well known salon so I guarantee that if I used her and went to a real trial I would have came out amazing and exactly what I wanted. but I can not afford to use them :(
UPDATE: I had my hair trial. We tried a few things. (1-3) The first few pics we tried to do a design on top with the bump before she pinned it half up and tighter curls. (4-6)The last few pics she just pulled the hair back(more of it) with teasing to create a small bump then pinned it and also brushed out the tight curls to see the difference. Then we put the clip and veil in.
I decided to do the tight curls in pic one (because it was fall and loosen as the night goes on) and do the poof classic half up in pic 4 and 5.
This is the only reason I have not done the Post- wedding chop.. PRE!!! I really want my hair on my wedding day to be half up, and half down with tight curls cascading down, and side swept bangs, with a poof to my half up like the pics seen below!
Ovt22- on her wedding Day- I love her hair!
I had a quick hair trial at a bridal show here is what the girl did:
I have a hair trial with my hairdresser that I plan on using for the wedding on March 13th. I am going to show her all these pics.. I definetly want tighter smaller sections of curls, and a more intricate design with the poof. More pics to come after the trial!
