Today, I am feeling a little less overwhelmed about the entire wedding. Sunday I spent the afternoon with my mother at a local bridal show, and suddenly all my ideas seemed to be coming together--at least, as much as they can without actually setting anything in stone. I found these adorable beach chair invitations -- at a local vendor, and after coming home I also found them (for a much better price, I may add) on a website. Upon searching, I also discovered "message in a bottle" invitations with sand, seashells, etc. in the bottles-has anyone ever heard of/seen these? I'd love to see them in person, but from what I can tell they may possibly be a feasable dyi invitation idea. Also, our reception/beach house dilemma seems to be going much better today-several emails from gulf front homes that have NO problems with having a wedding there (you would not BELIEVE how hard that is to find!). I am extremely excited about my wedding, and at the current moment I am not feeling such a feeling of DREAD that has been overwhelming me over the past week. YAY!
Also, (saw lots of things I DESPISED) I saw a couple of cute little things at the fashion show exhibit at the bridal show-- How does everyone feel about birdcage veils? I myself am slowly becoming a fan..... (mother hates them, and says Jackie O is not exactly what she wants me to look back and see twenty years from now.) I love the ones similar to this--
Okay, so this one is more of a pill box type, but hey, I love ANYTHING vintage. And I mean ANYTHING.
So, as I'm hoping to get more followers, I hope you ladies can tell me what you think about some of these things... oh, one more important thing. I am an extraordinarily undecisive bride. I love many things, but it is hard for me to pinpoint something and say that is IT. ... Perhaps it is because I work in a bridal shop, have I mentioned this? I see SOOO many different things, it is just incredibly difficult for me to pick exactly what I want for myself. With that said, I believe I decided on a gown I'd like to order today, and I would love any input anyone could add-- LIKE? LOVE? HATE?? I've tried on a smaller size than I need (perhaps I'll need that size by the wedding--planning on going on a diet similar to water and tree bark soon :) ) and the gown really feels lightweight (its organza) enough for a beach wedding. So... drum roll please..
Organza, and the rosette type pattern on the skirt has small scattered rhinestone/bead detail that is a little hard to visualize in the picture.... Also, I plan on doing either a turquoise or aqua sash.
What do you guys think???
