wedding stuffs...

i ordered my garter from this awesome shop on etsy --->
i got it in the mail last week and i LOVE it!!
i love everything in her shop!
if you are getting married or know anyone that is go check her shop out.
my garter was custom made.  i requested pink, green, a flower and bling...
it turned out P E R F E C T!
i think it looks even better in person.
*************************************************
thanks to a sweet blogger friend, i ordered and received fuchsia socks for billy!
they don't match his shirt that well but they coordinate with my shoes quite well.
so it will work for a picture i want to take!
***************************************************
not sure if i mentioned in my last wedding post but i'll be doing my own hair.
i'm a little nervous about this.
*************************************************
we are going to get our rings on friday!
**************************************************
we ordered our marriage license tuesday and we will have it early next week!
*****************************************************
i made this tank to wear day of while getting ready. 
i might switch the flower to a hot pink/fuchsia flower, the one clipped on the tank now is more blush.
******************************************************
not including rings, my dress and billy's suit, we will have spent under $1,000 for everything.
including photographer, marriage license, decorations and all other the other little details!
****************************************
that's all the wedding info i have for today...
the 'big day' is coming up so soon! ;)
 **************************************************
happy thursday friends!!
 ******************************************************
p.s. a jucy lucy (spelt that way) is a hamburger with cheese in the middle!!
invented here in minnesota ---> wikipedia
if you ever have the chance, try one!
cheese might drip down your cheek while oozing out of the burger, the mess is worth it of course ;)
