the pictures really do it no justice and i can't find a picture online.
the entire dress is white even though in this picture below the top looks creamish. its not.
other random wedding stuff...
i decided to not have the ceremony on the deck by the pool.
there is just too much going on by the pool so we are going to move the metal frame canopy to the backyard behind the fenced in pool. it will go between 2 trees and still have the paper lanterns hanging from the top. i might add some little lanterns to the trees. i think the flowers and trees my parents have in their backyard will make for a much nicer scenery in the photos than pool floaties and random signs that say "it's 5:00 somewhere" and "no shirt, no shoes, no problem". haha...
new date - AUGUST 14
4:30 or 5:00i'm undecided on the time. since it's just parents and siblings i can hold off deciding a tiny bit longer.
my "real extensions" that i have had in my hair are NOT going to last over another month.
they are actually ready to come out now.
my hair is short and i want long hair for my wedding day.
so i will be wearing my clip-in extensions and still getting my hair done professionally.
i'm not sure if i want to wear something in my hair yet.
i know i want to wear a fuchsia clip-in flower after the ceremony with my dress above.
i'm a control freak (admitted) and i know the day of the ceremony i'm going to want to set everything up to make sure it is perfect to me.
this is not a beautiful, over the top traditional wedding but what we are doing works for us because we are simple people and i just want everything to look as good as possible, as any bride would.
with a hair appt and getting ready and pictures before the ceremony i don't know how much time i'll have day of to set things just how i want them. gives me anxiety ;)
i do have have off from work a few days before the wedding so i'm going to do as much as i possibly can and i plan to be up at the crack of dawn day of to prep what i can.
making the bouquet makes me a little nervous but i know my mom and i can handle it.
the good thing is we won't really have anything to decorate because everything is going to be very simple.
what time do ya'll suggest doing pictures if the ceremony is at 4:30/5?
keeping in mind there is no wedding party but i will want family pics.
i had my heart set on having a candy buffet at our reception that we had previously planned so even though we are only going to have immediate family i'm still trying to sneak a little candy buffet in :)
i want to get a pink and or fuchsia dog leash for gus.my mom got his tux sewn so it will fit him perfectly!
i also want to get pink/fuchsia socks for billy.
anyone know where to find some??
i have looked and not had any luck finding men's fuchsia socks. i know they are out there somewhere. i have checked ebay.
okay, enough wedding chatter for now....
this turned into a very long post.
