Dress #2

Okay, I honestly debated as to whether or not I even would share this with anyone because when you read it you will say either I'm the most insane person in the world or the best mother in the world.

We have bought another wedding dress.

There. I said it.

And no. We cannot cancel the other one.

A couple of weekends ago we went to a local bridal store to look at bridesmaid dresses. Well, they had gotten in the new Allure spring line. And there it was. "THE" perfect dress.


I liked the first dress she ordered because she did. It just didn't "wow" me though. This new dress "wowed" me big time. And...it fit to a T. No altering needed. That kinda was a "sign" to me I guess.

So, the dress is at our house.

I would love to show you the picture but I'll wait until after the wedding.

Go ahead, call me crazy.

Thank goodness I only have one child.

By the way, I have a beautiful Allure Couture Bridal gown, ivory/silver, size 5, I will sell very reasonable. Very, very reasonable.




You can actually buy dead grass and dirt from the endzone...



In my latest email from Hobby Lobby, I just thought this was kinda creepy. Who'd want a headless bride and groom as a placecard holder?

But I do like the tealight holder. I may have to check those out.


Midweek Ramblings

All I think about is "wedding" night and day. I am glad I only have one child! It is all so exciting yet so stressful at the same time. I want to get everything done NOW but some things just have to wait.

We did pick up a few items this past weekend. I'm sure I'll be spending tons of time, not to mention money, at Ultimate Party, Hobby Lobby and Michael's.

We also went to the church and mapped out the layout for the reception area, took some measurements and discussed the sanctuary decorations.

I am really excited about the candy favor buffet. It will be something like this:

I guess my biggest delima right now is the guest table centerpieces. I'll have a florist do the sanctuary flowers so I was trying to save some money and do the reception centerpieces myself. Right now I'm leaning towards mint julep cups with a mound of hydrangeas. That is the main flower. I am open for suggestions though...anyone, anyone!

But things are moving along. It'll be over before I know it though. My husband and I are already planning our August vacation. *sigh*
