Wedding Wednesday... Rolling Along!

It's mid-week already?? Say it ain't so... too much to accomplish and the hours are flying by this week! So much excitement in wedding land to tell you about though, so without further adieu...

Last weekend, I met Jennifer and her daughter Maddie to try on flower girl dresses! Oh the little darling didn't disappoint either--she instantly LOVED the dress I was hoping she would go for, and did a little modeling, too! Take a look at the beautiful princess {as she calls it} dress she'll be wearing for the wedding... ivory organza with a tulle overlay--only remove the pink sash and replace it with black tissue taffeta--simple and gorgeous!

Mom and I also worked on elements for the Bridal Brunch the day of the rehearsal--picking out colors, a design theme and invitations {swoon!}, though details of that whole shindig will be kept secret... sorry friends!! The bridesmaids have to wait =)

Then it was on to my favorite stationery store to select our correspondence/thank you cards... we ordered the exact same flat cards as I currently have, but with our monogram--so excited!


And, finally, I was delivered the most splended package of them all... custom wedding goodies for the big day!! I stumbled across Woomi's shop on Etsy months ago and bookmarked it so I would have the specifics when I was ready to order, and let me tell you--she beyond fulfilled every wish of these little intricate details!! I HIGHLY recommend her for all you engaged brides looking for personal items for your wedding...here are some of her looks:


And now, moving on to another fun Wednesday topic...

1. I'm loving the fact that even though I have shared loads of wedding details, I can't help but grin knowing that I still have some fun secrets no one knows about--sneaky, huh? Even my bestest of friends won't know what's in store until June 11th and I think this is one secret I can actually keep to myself...

2. I'm loving this little dress I picked up for the honeymoon at Anthropologie... 

3. I am loving that Jeff and I made it through our first round of pre-marital counseling last night and lived to tell about it--haha! We are all works in progress, right??

4. I am loving this new song by Diddy and Dirty Money--Coming Home


5. I am loving the fact that stores are carrying all kinds of fun Valentine's Day goodies... Dove chocolates, red and pink colored M&Ms, heart shaped baking pans--oh I can't wait to get baking away!!  

6. And last, but certainly not least, I am loving that I mastered the newly popular tissue paper pom poms on my very first try--pat on the back for my crafty self, right??? A few friends asked for me to post a tutorial, but I think this one here is way easy to follow with pictures to boot--enjoy!

    It's so adorable - I can't believe they had it under "lounge wear" on their site. Who lounges around in that?!? lol
