Welcome bags - I didn't think I was going to do them, but I have fallen weak and decided to have them for each guest room!

Here is a little mock up of the "bear necessities"


It has a mini first aid kit, Advil to go pack, hand sanitizer and bath and body works orange scented lotion.

Everything has been purchased with coupons and either free or really discounted (the B&B lotion was 75% off).

Just trying to figure out the bag topper, as I'm not too fond of the one in the photo.

I had Joe too, he was great. Now I've got Michelle.

I'm doing small welcome bags too, they would be some great to find in your room!

I have recently fallen prey to the welcome bag as well. After deciding we just weren't doing them, I've decided that we really do need them, so it's a scramble to get them together now. I think your bear necessities pack is really cute and I like the topper, I plan to just use a ziplock bag, lol.

The hanger is adorable! I really wanted one but my dress is way too heavy for it, and the sellers that do the wood with wire letters don't do them as neat as the seller you got yours from.

Dress shopping

My Mother, sister, friend and myself went to NYC to go to the J. Crew wedding boutique to look at dresses!

Mom, sis and I:


Sis, friend and I:




The consultant getting an idea of my style:


The poodle vest we made fun of, but surprisingly many people were looking at it/trying it on (maybe I don't understand fashion) Oh yeah, and it was $800!


Our little dressing room:


Everything was very nice and the people were friendly and knew what they were doing, it was apparent throughout the whole experience! A lot different experience than David's Bridal.

Up next - trying some dresses on - including the one dress that we went there specifically to see - will I like it?

Okay I couldn't wait any longer to build up the anticipation!

Here is the dress I loooooved online and made the trip to see in person, and I'm glad I did, because I didn't like it in person!

Here is my "I don't really like it face"


I ended up liking this one a lot and it was in the final running: (HAD TO REMOVE PHOTO SO RICK COULD READ ALONG)


And it had pockets! (from the moment I got engaged, I had said I wanted a dress with pockets)


Another I did not like so much: (the top was pretty but the bottom wasn't flattering)


This one looked better on the mannequin!


The pink shoes I hope to have money left in the budget for:


A $680 necklace - it did look pretty on the book lady, only in my dreams will I wear it!


Pretty pink flowers


Will I find a dress I like? The suspense is killing me!

This is the dress I ended up purchasing!! It's very much me and it has pockets!
(HAD TO REMOVE PHOTO SO RICK COULD READ ALONG)

I bought it in two sizes as I plan on losing 10 lbs and hope to fit into the smaller size as the larger size needs to be taken in at my current weight.

A shot of the boutique:


My question to you:

Which pair of shoes do you like better (that is if I don't purchase the ones from J. Crew)? It's hard to tell from the bad lighting but they really are pink, not red as they appear!


Up next - a hair piece (lol that sounded like a wig, not the headband I intended).

Headband

I've decided that I'm going to have short hair for the wedding, as I'm not into up-do's so much.

That being said - I've been on the search for head pieces. These are the three I found and hope to use one of them.

Which do you think goes best with the dress?

#1:


#2:


#3:


I hope to use a birdcage veil with the headband for the ceremony.


Whew! That's all for tonight, look forward to your comments!

I love your dress! As for your hair, I liked style number 1 the best. You have great facial features for short hair.

I got the hanger from etsy - http://www.etsy.com/shop/lilafrances

It took awhile to get, so I would recommend ordering early!
