Well we finally went and bought the fabric for my bridesmaid dresses last week Friday, since I wasn't at work I actually got to go with mom to the fabric store to get it! I will take a picture of the 3 different colors sometime so I can post a picture. Then I also had to deal with trying to get the tux stuff figured out... aaaahhh..... try to match colors! I actually found the right color at Black & Lee for the ties... just don't know what to do yet... do I have to go with stuff all from one place or should I make it confusing.... LOL

time to think about finishing those invites...

Well now that I finally got most of my stuff (last week when I was sick... so I'm keeping that as my reason for not doing it yet) it is time to get to work on finishing my invitations. I don't really think it will happen this week but I'm going to try see if I can try get just a bit of work done on them.... I just have to sit down and figure out a few minor details on them yet and then I'm set.... oh and I just remembered I have to order envelopes to yet! :) One last thing that I forgot, intentionally or not I don't know... but whatever there isn't a major rush on yet.... give it a week or so and I might starte thinking about it a bit more!

Yay! I have my shoes

... shoes.... at first I thought I was going to have to return them but after I put them on at home... well if I went a size smaller they would be to tight... oh well I will have to see what I can find to make them fit right or otherwise add an extra hole to the strap... for the rest I love them... but that is all I'm going to say for now....

Wedding Flower Ideas/Reception

Ok, so I'm trying this again!
I really like this idea:
Orange dahlias in alternating orange or green vases added a punch of color to the escort card display.
Of course these colors don't match but I really like the simple yet elegant look that is given by doing them this way. Also it all depends on what I can get figured out, depending on what flowers Oma has that are blooming at that point in time... might just get them from her! So then it is just a matter of figuring out what to do for vases... I have some ideas just need to see if I can get the right colors for that...
I came across this pictures for the table #'s on the same website: (
Each table number featured a different engagement photo and a piece of trivia about the couple.
So that gives me two different idea's I like both of them... what it will come down to is how much time do I have and how much effort do I want to put into them... either idea would be nice..
Rectangular table numbers matched the style of the invitations, programs, and escort cards. They were made of white card stock printed with orange numbers.

grrr... I'm annoyed

I just tried to post something and it didn't work... Ok I guess I will try again in a while!

card time

.. well last night I decided I should start working on invitations again! So I cut up a bunch of paper! 120 pieces of 5 1/2 x 8 to be exact... and wow was my thumb sore after that... :( I know I shouldn't complain.. and the fact is about 1/2 hr. later it wasn't anymore! Anyway... There are somethings I can't really do yet since I have to print the stuff out first.. but that means figuring out wording etc. Other than that I need to order a whole bunch of ribbon and paper etc. before I can do a whole lot more!
Since I'm making favours that really means I need to figure out how much paper each thing is going to use etc. as well as whatever else I will be using! It could be interesting! I think one of these day's I'm going to sit down with a bunch of people and make some stuff, but for now I'm still doing it myself... since I still have some time!

My E-Ring

Well I finally decided to go have a look and find the picture of the ring online so I can post it for those of you who haven't seen it :)
And then with the Wedding band... I'm only posting this now because I know he has the band to go with it and since I'm doing the ring thing now.. I might as well!
The Wedding Band...

...With the E-Ring from above

and the side..

So that is it... I think most of you know the story, but I didn't want to even suggest anything for the ring! All I told him was I liked White Gold... other than that he could go shop and have fun.. see what he liked... etc. I wouldn't trade it for anything, loved it right from the started and was thrilled at how well he had my taste figured out... LOL.. Now I just need to find one for him.. we went shopping together so I sorta know what he likes and what size etc. Now it is just a matter of finding one! Since I'm not going shopping for it with him... other than the looking part, that way he can still be partly surprised!
I am going to post a picture of one of the ones we looked at together since he knows what it looks like anyway...
And the side view...
So that is all for now... btw.. we only looked at this band for him.. doesn't mean that it is the one!

one more thing done - Feb 2

Well after work today I went to see what options I would have for John's ring... and guess what? Yup, I came home with a ring.... (anyway John you know you don't even need to ask what it looks like because you know what I told you :)) Anyway slowly but surely things are getting done which is a good thing!
