New Save the Date design!

After much deliberation and staring at the original save the dates...I realized I didn't like them all that much. So I made new ones! Now we have 200 though so we can hand them out to everyone, not just OOT guests! What do you think?

Wedding dress--check!!

I went dress shopping with my mom, my MOH, and one of my BMs last night. I picked out 5 dresses to try on. The first one I put on, I fell in love with. It gave me goosebumps and I didn't want to take it off. I KNEW I found the dress. But, I decided to go ahead and try on the other 4. I mean, what was it going to hurt? I had actually went to David's Bridal before to try on dresses and I found one I liked a lot. It was the 3rd dress I tried on. I loved it, but I just didn't get the feeling I got with the first one.

So, I came out with a dress, the bra, and the slip.

Best part you ask? Oh, the dress is a size 0 petite. It fits perfectly. It's a little lose in the stomach/chest region, but not loose enough where you can see it. However, it is loose enough that if I gained a few pounds it wouldn't be bad news or anything.

Sooo yay!!

I love getting mail!

Yesterday in the mail, I received our Save the Date cards and our photo sharing cards!! I'm soooo excited!! I wasn't sure what, if anything, I wanted to put on the back of the postcards, so I left room for me to write whatever we wanted...I felt like it made it a little more personal that way. And the photo sharing cards look really awesome! I'll put pictures of them up just as soon as I can..along with pictures of my super cute wedding "cutesies" as I call them! lol

And Monday, I'm going dress shopping with my mom, my MOH, and one of my BM's! I'm sooo excited! Hopefully I'll come back on Monday with a dress ordered!! *fingers crossed*

Limo, Gifts, etc etc

We booked the limo last week!

And we hit our first DIY snag. I was printing our STDs out to test them out printing double sided. And I realized that..uh oh...you could see RIGHT THROUGH THE PAPER.

So, in desperation, I ordered them off of VistaPrint and will be getting them in about 2 weeks. Woo!

I bought a few items for my girls' presents over the weekend. I bought their bags (just simple canvas bags I'm dressing up) and a really cute picture frame for each girl. I'm also looking for a really simple small make up bag I can fill with goodies. And rhinestone letters to iron onto each make up bag. Fingers crossed!

The bubbles are all finished and put away! Which is a HUGE thing. We've also messed with the invitation wording a little bit and made the actual invitation not seem so bare.

Our next few goals include:
*Finalize music must play/do not play lists.
*Finalizing a guest list.
*Meeting with the pastors next month.
