Brandon and I got so much done today and we are feeling good! We picked out the perfect cake for our wedding. We had so much fun tasting all the different flavors and we were able to narrow it down to one. The cake has a simplicity and elegance about it. We can't wait to eat it! We also started registering and had so much fun doing it! We were both "trigger" happy :) Last but not least, we made a trip to Friar Tux and registered Brandon and all his groomsmen. We were not on the same page about the suits but I think we found one that we are both happy with. He is excited to get together with his groomsmen next Friday and Saturday and get them all fitted. We had such a good day! We are even more excited to reach our special day!
The search is on for the perfect home for me and Brandon. We are really blessed to have people in our lives that care about us enough to help us find a home. My very good friend, Melissa, took so much stress off of my shoulders. She is so positive that we will find an amazing home and it keeps us positive. We can't wait to start looking at homes and finally get into one that we love!
Tonight was such a relief because all the bridesmaid dresses have been ordered. Everyone around me seemed to be stressed out that they wouldn't get here in time, except for me. I have faith that everything will work out in the end. It's a reality that not everything will be perfect but at the end of the day I get to be with Brandon and that is what I look forward to! The next step for me is to find the perfect flowers for my bouquets. I have so many pictures and ideas so I know the bouquets will be just lovely. My dad actually jumped in today and said he wanted to help find some flowers. What a dad!
This morning I woke up and I felt like I had gotten the wrong shoes for my wedding. I am afraid that I am going to have to break them in at the wedding and my feet will be hurting at the end of the night. I want to be totally and completely comfortable so I think I am going to return them. I will probably go back to my original idea of white ballet flats so I can dance the night away! I also woke up happy this morning because I get to see Samantha tonight and help her pick out the perfect Bridesmaid dress. By the end of the day all the dresses will be ordered and we will just have to wait their arrival.
Today was the day that I called all my bridesmaids, except for Katrina because she was working, and told them all to purchase their bridesmaids dresses before Sunday. Then they will all arrive on September 8th, just in time for the wedding. Originally I wasn't specific on all the bridesmaids wearing the same shoes, however, I found out that certain styles of shoes would not work well on the Golf Course grass. So today I set out to find a pair of shoes that everyone will be comfortable in and I found one! I think they will work out well. Today I also found my wedding shoes which was very exciting. They were just what I was looking for and I can't wait to wear them! Overall, I feel that my shoe shopping day was a success! Here are the pictures of the three style choices that my bridesmaids got to choose from. I can't wait to see them all dressed up!
Our wedding plans are finally underway and I am now realizing how much detail goes into planning a wedding. Today I gave my bridesmaid, Lisa, a very important job. Lisa is my go-to music gal so I thought it would be nice if I had her help picking out our playlist for the reception. There are so many songs that I would love to hear so I'm hoping she can help me narrow it down. Brandon and I are very excited to pick out our cake on Friday! I am more excited to taste all of them! Now that we have a secured location it feels real and its very exciting! Brandon just said to me last night that he can't wait to call me his wife! So sweet!
