Ha! I wish lol. But thankfully my Dad has opted to pay for them (instead of me) since we're keeping it in the family. So ultimately, it's a win win for me!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your wedding colors, and your ring is drop dead gorgeous!!

Regarding not having a bridal party, I can completely relate to you on that decision. DF and I are having a small wedding too (probably about 40 people), and it just didn't feel right to have a traditional bridal party. I think we'll end up just having one person each to stand up there with us.

Yay for a DP!! That'll be a fantastic experience! What sort of desserts are you thinking you'll have??

I'm very excited to see/read the rest of your plans!
Thanks for joining in! For desserts, we are doing the cordials in the chocolate cups, then one of the preset menus. (Can't remember which one) but it was the larger one. I'm kinda getting a bit over the top at this point lol

Thank you! He is a romantic, more so than me at times! haha! And I do love the bling on this ring, sometimes I can't quit staring at it LOL

Invitations

So first, our Save the Dates. Brandon actually made these himself! I found a general idea of what I wanted, then he tweaked it in Publisher, then we sent them to Kikos to be printed. He cut most of them at work, then we cut the edges to be rounded. All in all, it was something like $30. woohoo! We sent these out in...October ish? I think. lol



Next up is our official invitations. We had these made from Minted. They were great to work with and I found the process pretty simple. I can honestly say that I didn't spend much time picking out invitations, they were never a huge priority for me. Frankly, if it hadn't been for the fact that people were ultimately *very* confused about doing everything on the wedding website when we sent our STD's, I wouldn't have bothered with paper. But some of the old school folks really wanted a paper invite, so here you go. We sent these out Monday or Tuesday so most people should have them by now.

Our wedding website has every detail about the wedding. Including our dessert party on Sunday. I also emailed out a calendar of events that I created for our immediate family. So I am really forcing everyone to get online and look at it

invites

I really like that the STD is a little more fun, carefree ticket to Disney. Then the formal invite is more of an adult fairy tale feel. Very happy with these.

Thank you so much! I never planned to have two, or two that were similar, but I think it really worked out

It is my absolute favorite part of our entire engagement! It always is the unplanned that turns out being the most memorable!

Flower Girl Dresses

We got our flower girl dresses!! I had spent a million (actual number) hours online looking at dresses for my nieces and just wasn't making any progress. Inevitably, the only dresses I would like were a million dollars (Also actual number) So I told my SIL that we just needed to go to the mall and buy something and be done with it.

As I walked in their house on Friday, my niece Pearl asked me if we (Her and I) were getting married. We had a brief conversation where I reminded her that the groom was actually Brandon, but that she would in fact be IN the wedding as a flower girl.

Surprisingly, we got the dresses within an hour. They were the second ones we found, first ones we tried on. And I think my countless hours online paid off, because I was prepared to make the decision on the spot. So here is my niece Eva modeling the dress! (My younger niece also tried it on, but her size wasn't in stock so it is being ordered)



I really love them. I think they are the perfect blend of formal/casual that will fit right in for our wedding. $44 at Nordstrom, can't beat that! (These girls are so adorable, they will steal the show regardless of what dress they are wearing!!)

She is so cute! It made me laugh that she thought you and her were getting married. Kids says some funny things. The dress is really unique and looks adorable on her. Nice pick!
