I was starting to worry I was going to have to stray from my color scheme for my candy buffet or that I would find candy and it would all be grape and green apple flavored but I think I've found what I need!
there's our green apple :)
Grape and apple rock candy. They also come in chunks so thats alwaya an option if we have too much height.
I haven't decided on Jelly Belly's yet but these are the options Wild blackberry 7up Grape crush but its a very pretty color Mixed berry smoothie Mojito Watermelon
Of course m&m's come in all colors but I think I'm going to go with these triple chocolate and mint chocolate
Gummy army men Peachy penguins. I know it sounds weird but I'm happy I'm able to get an unexpected flavor in my purple and green candy buffet :)
Key lime taffy huckleberry taffy
I think this is the one thing I find worth actually buying online Blackberry cobler candy corn :)
I got my dress from Lady Margaret's in Puyallup, Wa. I expected dress shopping to be this big long ordeal involving many stores and a lot of dresses but no such luck ;) It was the first store I went to and the 4th dress I put on. I just love it so much!
I originally went in with this picture
I knew I didn't want strapless and I imagined myself in something fitted, sheath or mermaid. I had a few other pictures but this was the Only one that really cried out to me. Gorgeous! What I ended up in was this
It had some similarities. The embellishment on the hip, the fanck straps, the corset back. Its A-line so a little fuller than I planned but oh it fits my curves so well, and oh the neck line is amazing and oh how the creamy ivory compliments my skin. I can't believe I only get to wear it for one day!
Me and my wonderful mother in law :)
I'm getting my dresses from Alfred Angelo's. I'm letting my girls decide which dress they want. I love them all for different reasons so why shouldn't they be able to show they're own style :) I just gave them some guidelines. They all have to be eggplant and since my color is so dark I wanted them to be chiffon and shorter length to lighten the feel since its gonna be August. Also to avoid any silly combinations of dresses I told them it was first come first serve and they could only pick a dress no one else had picked yet :)
This is what they picked!
The color is not quite right here. They are much prettier in person :)
The MOH got hers with Hunter green trim and sash which is our other color :)
Hmmm the pictures don't seem to be working right now... Hopefully I can fix that soon
