I'm on the hunt for a pretty clutch, and I stumbled across Angeew on Etsy her things are so fun and pretty and I wish I had reasons to wear some of these pretty hair pieces!

I lot of people have told me how important it is to capture the day on video. It helps to link photos together and bring your day to life. What a task it is to find a good one! I looked at over a dozen videographers. I decided to give Pretty Girl Productions my business. He was a half to a quarter of the price of those that where competing with him quality wise. I loved his personality and the amount of personal touches he allows clients. Also something that I think is very important is his professional lighting, and sound quality.

You can find people with Big Souls. I am always interested into tuning in to the people I meet. Our organist for the wedding is one of those people. He touched my mom and my hearts and is just someone you know is special. I can't wait to be in the cathedral on the day of our wedding and hear his beautiful music. I know I will be swept away with emotion.

As a little girl, given money to spend at the candy store was always SUPER exciting. To carry the excitement and fun of candy to our wedding. I'm having a Candy Bar... these are pretty popular now and I'm so excited to be jumping onto this trend. Our candy bar will feature candy and snacks of white/cream and gold!
I have already purchased all my containers, the only thing left are the bags for our guest to fill with their goodies and some scoops!

I have been on the hunt for the perfect hair "accessory". I knew I didn't want a tiara, though I'm a princess at heart. I opted instead for a brooch or hair clip since I plan on wearing my hair only half up. I started my search in bridal shops here in the city and just looking at random brooches at any store that sold them and found my options limited and not what I had in mind. I then turned my attentions to ETSY. Which has long been an addiction to mine. I started scrolling through pages and pages of hair clips and combs and then I saw it! The perfect hair clip, and though I'm usually a hands on kinda a gal, that needs to see and touch before I buy. The price was right and the store was called LuluSplendor! Lulu is my dog's name so I took it as a sign. I'm so happy I did. My hair brooch arrived today all the way from Australia! It's perfect too! YAY!

I'm a huge sentimental person. Most generations now do not even consider wearing their mothers wedding dress. Most are too dated and out of fashion to really be worn again.
My mother was married by the Justice of the Peace. She wore a simple Jackie O' looking suite that was cream brocade with pearl and rhinestone buttons. It has a pencil skirt and three quarter sleeve jacket.
I'm getting married in a beautiful Cathedral and I don't think it would really go with the look of the wedding... but luckily for me, it still looks very stylish and FITS, and I plan on wearing it to our wedding rehearsal. I good luck charm of a stronger and lasting marriage. Yes, my parents are still married and going on 43 years this year.
I'm so excited to be wearing her dress, a piece of history, a piece of our family!
I do have to loose just a little bit of weight! My mother had a 21 inch waste back then... so I need to slim down just a slight bit!
I'm sorry the picture is so dim, it's 43 years old! I will post a picture of me in the dress after the wedding!

While driving home after a fabulous dinner with my "Super Bridesmaid" the New Beyonce song "Single Ladies" came on and I think this is a fabulous song for the bouquet toss! Come on Single Ladies put your hands up!!! Though we aren't doing this at our reception I hope some singles ladies in some weddings real soon have fun!

We picked out the Tuxes this weekend! WOO HOO...another thing off the list. The Groom, Best Men, Dads, Ushers and Ring Bearer will all be wearing the same tux. The groom will be wearing a champagne colored vest and tie, while the groomsmen will be in a "latte" color vest and tie. The dads and ushers will be sticking to traditional black. I think the colors of the groom and best men will really compliment myself (the bride) and the bridesmaids. Unfortunately, I really can't find a picture of what our tuxes will look like.

December flew by!! I mean really, I have no idea what happen to time since... well about October! I hope to be blogging more in the new year, for as you can see I have started the wedding countdown. Talk about making me anxious! 2009 arrived with a lot of anxiety for me... mostly because, well I had a lot left still to do in 2008. Hopefully I will get all got up and catch you up on everything that is going on.
