Your wish is my command!

Now that I am a bride-to-be, I understand all the things brides don’t want to hear. Griping. Complaints about dresses/shoes/jewelry. Anything negative that’s directed at YOUR wedding. Thankfully, I have incredible friends and bridesmaids who have all said “whatever you want!” (I seriously love them!)

We are getting ready to place the order for our J. Crew bridesmaid dresses and I couldn’t be happier. I LOVE that my bridesmaids and I will be wearing J. Crew on my big day. Their dresses are just SO classy! And can definitely be worn again, right? I know everyone says that but I really believe it with J. Crew. They are very versatile and who doesn’t love to dress up fancy for a night out? I truly did want to find a dress that they would be comfortable in, loved, and could potentially use again. Maybe not as a “wear every-other week” dress or “wear to work” dress, but something that could be reworn to an event later on.

For a while I was torn between the J. Crew ones and Alfred Sung styles (pictured above) – but ultimately, the girls picked the J. Crew ones. They’re going to look so stunning! Color and styles will remain secret – until the big day of course! Both J. Crew and Alfred Sung offered FREE sample swatches – which helped us decide the color. We had a very specific look in our minds, so it was easy for us to decide the color.
I have yet to book the florist (or even call any)… and time is ticking. But I did get this really adorable stamp for our post-wedding thank-you notes!

Tough Decisions

I would like to order a bunch of different save-the-dates because I am terrible at picking JUST ONE. We were trying to finalize our invite list this morning and simultaneously looking at save-the-dates. I plan on sending these out after the holidays (don’t want any to get lost with all those holiday cards!).

A few weeks ago, we ordered samples of wedding invitations from Wedding Paper Divas to see if we picked any of the same ones. I thought that would be a cute way to decide on the invitation, however, I have more of a classical style and my groom is artsy-fartsy. We did find one that has a burlap design with a blue design… I mean, hello! It doesn’t get more perfect than that… luckily, we have a little while to decide on the invitations, response cards, menus?, and whatever else we have to order… but the save-the-dates are a little more immediate.

I have always loved magnet save-the-dates… something to keep it right there in people’s faces versus being put in a “junk drawer” and forgotten. I also HAVE to have a photo on the save-the-date … after all, we have just taken a million more adorable photos together, so we have to put them to good use.

Just two more weeks of classes for the both of us and then we have a few weeks to relax and wedding plan our little hearts out before Christmas, New Years and the start of our Spring semesters. Lots of decisions to be made… soon… but probably not today.
