Picked up dress & more..

Thursday mom and I went down to Middletown to pick up my dress. We left the house early so we wouldn't be gone all day. When we got down to David's Bridal it was 10:20 and we walked up to the doors and tugged...but nothing. They don't open until 11:00. (Maybe we should have checked that before going down, lol) So we went to Burlington and wasted some time there. I went and picked up my dress, which being a dreamer, thought it would fit PERFECTLY! Of course it didn't, and so I will have to have alterations done (which I've already scheduled..april 26th). Then we headed back home stopping in Wurtsboro for lunch. Lunch was good, and right across from the dinner there was a little bridal store "Crystal Vision Bridal Shoppe" or something like that. Of course we went in after lunch....mom tried on a BUNCH of dresses-some for her and some for me (so I could see bridesmaid dresses). We had a lot of fun, and by the time we left and got home it was 4:30! So much for not spending the whole day down there, huh? It was fun though!! And my dress is "home". It's at Nick's mom's because my closet is too short for it!!

So I was online looking for flower girl dresses a couple of weeks ago, and WOW DO U KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY THEY COST?! RIDICULOUS!!! So I searched something like "cheap flower girl dress" or something to that effect and came upon a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL website!! The dresses are JUST AS NICE as other places but 1/2 the price or less!!! I KNOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So of course this is where we will be ordering these dresses from!!! (the dresses will have a pink sash & roses)

We are getting the ringbearer tuxes from here too. They have a lot of dresses to choose from, and even have holiday ones too. So if you or someone you know is looking for a pretty little girl's dress or flower girl dress, then let me know and I will send you the website!!


So let me explain this a little bit. The centerpieces are made up of 9 square budvases. There will be 8 persons at each table. Each of the budvases will be etched with a poem written by Nick and I on one side, and a Monogram-thingy on another side. They are serving as both centerpieces and favors (because well, let's face it...people usually take the centerpieces too). So this way it kills two birds with one stone, looks good, and is functional. Now to explain the pictures...some of the centerpieces will be together some apart (as shown) [this is still debatable though], and some of the centerpieces will match the bridesmaid bouquets (example shown) and some will have three *WHITE* calla lillies (not like the pink shown).

I know it's stunning with the calendar backdrop! Be expecting that at the wedding too...Every table with their own HUGE calendar, because we never want you to forget what day it is :)


Here is what the bridesmaid flowers should look like:
I am going to carry a Calla Lilly bouquet (my FAV. flower in case you didn't know already). I'm not sure if they will be white or pink callas though.

Should it be this easy?

Ok so I know that I have a lot more things to do, and a lot of time left to do them in, but I am beginning to wonder..should it be this easy? I mean really. I know what flowers we are using, where we are going to get them from (fake, but look SUPER real), I am getting my dress tomorrow, the flower girl dresses are picked out,the ringbearer tuxes are picked out, centerpiece/favors are taken care of (except for ordering all of them & the etching), & the poem is written.
I am pretty sure on the bridesmaid dresses, food is pretty well taken care of (meeting next week to discuss it more in detail), photog & video (meeting next weekend) but am pretty sure we will go through them, cake (still have to do that, but know what we want it to look like), know what invitations. Nick and I go the 27th (of OCTOBER) to see tux options for him and his mens. We already have our wedding rings (got them a few months ago).

I mean not to sound crazy, but most of the stuff is taken care of already or being taken care of within the next week/month.

So it makes me wonder...if it seems this easy...what am I forgetting? and...if it seems to be this easy now, how's it really going to play out when it gets closer? It should make it as little stress as possible right? Let's hope so, otherwise why am I trying so hard to get this all done now!! :)

Dress & More

Well I got a call on Thursday saying that both my headpiece and dress are in and I have to come pick it up in 5-7 business days. What happens if I don't? I already paid for it, so what?! (Yea, I'm feeling a little sassy tonight) I haven't called them back, I should probably do that tomorrow and go down on this Thursday to pick it up, so hopefully the plan will work out like that. It actually caught me by surprise because when I ordered it the lady said it wouldn't be in until almost Thanksgiving. So I was like great! Because if I have it here, guess what I am going to be wearing 24/7?! Or at least gwaking at, which wouldn't be good considering we have two dogs which shed like it was going out of style!! (I've started collecting it to spin, and will be taking orders for dog scarfs, hats, & sweaters, etc.-JUST JOKING!!)

Tomorrow is the day the girls come up and meet each other (all but Michelle in AZ-she's here in spirit though), so that is exciting. I was just working on the food for it, but it's late and dark and I'm a baby...I kept hearing a thumping and the dog started to growl so I hightailed it out of the kitchen and am now ready for bed. :) I still hear the thumping, but it's not as scarey up here with Nick in the next room (even if he is sleeping). Yes, I'm a scaredy cat of the things that go bump in the night.

I'll be sure to check in tomorrow and let you know how that went.

Wow, did I surprise myself today! I was taking a break from the homework, and was searching on amazon for really nothing. I decided I would try and find something for an idea of what to get Nick for my gift to him (b/c I had NO idea). I am searching, and then all of a sudden it hits me- I'll get him a .... (suspense-you'll have to wait until the wedding, I can't give everything away!-but keep reading) So I'm looking through the items, and there are some really good sales going on. I find one I like and add it to the cart, but it's a little too expensive for right now so it will just have to sit there, and I go back to looking..LOW AND BEHOLD... a couple more pages of searching and I find the *PERFECT* one. The style, the colors, the PRICE, everything was right. So I put it in my cart it's on sale for $89.99 FROM...drum roll.........................$475!!!!! I couldn't believe it! Trust me people, if it was any more than $99 I wasn't buying it, I just can't see paying that much for a .... (ooo- I bet you really want to know now :p) So it's in my cart and I go to check out and I get 20% (& they rounded up to the nearest dollar amount- $18!!) off the sale price b/c of another sale that's going on! So I got it for $71.99!!!! I saved $403.01, and I didn't have to pay shipping because the order was over $25!! I think this is THE best deal I have EVER gotten in my entire life!

So that's my story of SUPER savings, what a rush! I feel like I stole it!!!

Hidden Valley/Lake Charolette Estate

We will be getting married in Equinunk, PA at the Hidden Valley Camp or Lake Charolette Estate. We will have there ceremony by the waterfront:

And will be having the reception at the hall/pavillion, the picture below. The interior is all wood-beamed with a HUGE stone fireplace.
I do appologize for the quality of the pictures. I didn't take them, I actually found them on myspace from one of the girls I know that was married here also. But at least it gives a little idea of what to expect and look for.

Sneak Peak

I thought I would give everyone a sneak peak of the dress. This way I won't have to try to describe it, because my words just don't do it justice. Here it is...

(Nick doesn't really check this so I don't have to worry about him seeing it.)
