My dress came in this weekend and I had time to go try it on yesterday. She's a little big and wrinkly, but otherwise looks great and I love her just as much as I remember. And the veil I have on is the one I will be wearing for the wedding. Here are a few pictures (sorry for the weird face):
Last week I met with a local artist who I found at a bridal show. Not only is she going to do some fabulous paintings for the parents' gifts, she's also doing some custom jewelry for me...and even better...she's super reasonable!
Today she sent me a few pearl colors to choose from:
She's doing a pendant necklace and drop earrings. The main color will be satin sand. Pistachio and olive green will be used and a few black cherry pearls will be used as an accent. I'm super excited! Once I get the sketch, I'll post that too!
Here are some of the updos I'm loving (now only if I have the patience to grow my hair out!):
Here's more hair inspiration:
And the makeup I like:
These are still a work in progress, but I'm happy with the direction they are going.
The Holiday Inn!
Cocktails and appetizers will be served poolside:
