Deck the Bride

I'm trying SO hard not to become one of those brides who's only topic of conversation is the wedding.  I guess that's part of why I created this blog.  There's only a few people would would listen to wedding talk non-stop and like I said, I'm trying to be at least 2 dimensional...  

There wasn't a ton of wedding progress made this weekend unless you count addressing a TON of Save the Dates (STDs).  I really, really want to get those suckers in the mail before we leave for our Christmas vacation.  Sending those out also means updating our wedding website and stalking our registry even more!  But I really want people to have them as they start the new year so they know exactly when our wedding is and where and can plan for it.

Another thing I did this weekend was buy my wedding jewelry while I was out Christmas shopping, whoops!  But I've been admiring these earrings online for probably a month now and I finally got to see them in person and decided they were exactly what I was looking for.  Plus, they were 60% off and then my SIL had a 30% off coupon so I got both pieces (necklace and earrings) for less than 2/3 of the price of one!

Curious to see what they look like?  Here.  I love they way they'll look with my hair up and compliment the blue of my sash.  The necklace matches and I'm going to get a slightly shorter chain for it so it doesn't interfere with my neckline and then I'll be done.

The only thing I'm torn about is that my mom offered to dig out my grandmother's pearls (she passed away when I was about 10) for me to wear as an heirloom piece.  I suppose I'll see how they look with the dress but I'm wondering if I can wrap them around my bouquet instead.  

So I consider myself almost done, save for shoes and undergarments.  I'll probably get some Spanx and I know what shoes I want, I'm just having a hard time pulling the trigger on them.  I thought I wanted 3-in heels for some reason (because I don't want to be able to walk the next day?) but the ones I found are about 2 1/4.   I will order them anyway and see what I think.

That's about all from Wedding Land today!  Thanks for sticking with me all this time!

  1. I think that wrapping them around the bouquet is a perfect idea. It was the suggestion I had in my head before I got to that sentance!
