Wedding Wednesday...Are We There Yet??

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

I know, I missed last weeks' all things wedding post--sorry friends. However, I am back this week with more wedding talk... others of you that don't care, feel free to browse right over this post as I would hate to bore you with mindless chatter--haha!
First and foremost, I am at a loss for words--my handy dandy Knot checklist says I have nothing to do this month. Can that really be true?? It seems to me that I have an endless to-do list yet there helpful overly analytical chart says pass right on by November and move to December...hmmm.
Well, let's see, we have made progress: Mom and I visited The Bride Room as well as The White Room these past two weekends and have a few top contenders for MOB dresses. We are rounding out our search this weekend at Arzelles {maybe I can put on my dress again just so I can put a smile on my face??} and then to Bella Bridesmaid... we will pick a dress this weekend, I am certain of it!
Here are the 2 styles at the top of our list:
Then there is the ever so tricky hair and makeup... I have a consult lined up in 2 weeks with the fabulous Amy Lynn Larwig--who comes so highly recommended--and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with. I definitely have an "idea" of what I want to look like on w-day, but with her tips and tricks and all things makeup, I know I'll be plesantly surprised when it comes time to look in the mirror! Here she is in all her gorgeousness and take a look at her work--incredible I tell you!!So, what were the favorite items you coveted during the wedding gifting fun??? Am I missing any essential wedding planning blogs out there??? Happy Hump Day ladies!!!
Another helpful post I stumbled across yesterday is devoted to the Top 50 Wedding Blogs... surprisingly, some of these I had yet to hear of until now, so let the stalking begin! Although I was very happy that some of my favs had made the list: Green Wedding Shoes, Once Wed, The Perfect Palette, and Snippet & Ink just to name a few!
And finally, just because every girl loves everything about wedding gifts, I wanted to show you some of my favorite scans from our registry... I absolutely am head-over-heels in love with my our formal china and can't stop looking at it--crossing my fingers we'll actually get to eat on this someday =)
Our China Pattern--Lenox Pearl Platinum
Our Crystal--Lenox Firelight Platinum
Our Formal Flatware--Vintage Jewel
