Final Updates:

I'm almost over my cold! Weekend before the wedding & WHAM fever, sore throat, stuffy nose... and I haven't even been stressing or missing sleep! *until tonight, lol, haven't been up this late in ages!

Don't buy from ThePaperBar on Etsy- she will short you 75 favor bags the week of your wedding!! Lol, looks like we'll be stuffing favors the night before our big day!!

Do buy from: for your cake topper. We found our exact same topper at a florist for $125, got it online for $29!!! It is so beautiful in person!

The cake has been ordered, and we get 4 tiers!!! From most to least- Red Velvet, Chocolate with Raspberry Jam & Bavarian Cream, Marble with Cappuccino & Vanilla with Banana Frosting. We also found out that on our 1st anniversary they'll make us a new top tier in any flavor of our choice! Yumm-o!!


I got my jewelry... seriously don't wait till the last minute! I saw a review about White Aisle and their super fast shipping, so I ordered from them and totally don't like it :-( The pearls are actually a lot more white than they appear in the picture... I've fallen in love with a new $150 necklace at... wait for it... CostCo! It's a triple strand off white/ivoryishk pearl necklace. I'm begging my FI to get it for me as a wedding gift, lol! If that falls through, I'm going to borrow a single strand from my mom.

Today I went on a hunt for my "something blue" and got a cute pair of "bride" undies at VS! On sale 3 for $30! Can't find a picture online :-(

Since we're bringing our own wine & w/o a corking fee, we've been searching for budget friendly wines that actually taste good & we finally made our decisions this past weekend. We now have 3 cases of red wine, 2.5 cases of white and 21 bottles of champagne in our living room! I ordered custom wine labels online and they finally arrived today... and slightly green. Grrr! But what can I do. I'm a habitual procrastinator with only a few days to go!!

A few hours ago my mom brought me a broach of my great grandma's and said too bad it wouldn't go on my dress, but instead I showed her a picture of my dress I'd found ages ago with a broach & she agreed it would look great! The one I'm borrowing is gold with a giant pearl in the middle.

I narrowed down my hair inspirations & did my trial today... it came out ok, but then fell out a few hours later :-/ we just did a fast practice run bc I also got a trim & a few highlightes. She kinda veered away from my pix, so on Saturday I have to make myself more firm! Wish me luck?

What still needs done: about 50 favor bags- stuff, hole punch, tie with ribbon. Taking the labels off of our wine bottles & re-labeling them... My mom wanted us to make programs, I even wrote them... however I'm pretty doubtfull they'll get printed... I didn't really want them anyways... and that's about it. I can't believe by this time Saturday, I'll be a Mrs!!

Maybe I'll get some sleep soon? Lol!

We wanted something to fit our outdoors theme, and to be eco friendly as well, and ended up deciding on personalized seed packets. They arrived, and they need help! So now we're going to doctor them up a little, here is the new plan:

What we thought we ordered:

I want something simple with flowers and lots of candles! Being that we'll be outdoors at night I think the candles will look really great! I'm also debating using mason jars?
