This dress is beautiful! It is Casablanca style 1886. The dress is a size 6 and is diamond white. It is very elegant with a modern touch. It has a sweetheart neckline and has beading and embroidery on the bodice. It is very flattering! There is a pleated sash at the waist and pick ups on the back of the dress. This dress would be gorgeous for any style wedding. I'll upload pictures of me in the dress as soon as I can get find some.

The Knot Book of Wedding Lists
This book has every list imaginable! It was helpful when I first started planning and I am still using it 3 months before the wedding!

6 Large Ivory Pew Bows
I bought these from another bride as well. They are beautiful but we decided to use candles to line the aisle instead of bows. They are made from wired satin ribbon that is 3 inches wide. The previous owner used the 6 large bows on the first three rows on each side of the aisle where the families sat. The remaining 10 smaller bows (pictured below) were used to line the other pews.

Our ceremony will take place in Litchfield, IL. We plan on keeping the ceremony decorations relatively simple. I am going to try to find an aisle runner. At the alter I am going to see what it will look like to have two manzanita trees with flowers and crystals. I thought about scattering rose petals along the aisle or putting pillar candles in vases along the aisle. I also liked the idea of using a larger ribbon to make bows to attach to the pews.
I bought jewelry for the bridesmaids at a pearl market in Beijing but they will be able to choose shoes of their choice in hopes they can wear them again. I also want them to choose a hairstyle that they like so they don't feel like they are identical to all the other bridesmaids. I'll try to get pics up of the jewelry soon.

From the pics below it's pretty clear what I want my hair to look like...we'll just have to see if it cooperates!
