Sole searching

I cant seem to find a decent pair of shoes that I want to wear for the wedding. I've stumbled upon a few nice pairs, but nothing that yells out "we're the ones!" When I do find some that I like they're either too high, or don't come in my size. I still have quite a bit of time left but I'm worried I'll end up settling for something less than my vision of "perfect".

The sad part is, I have the perfect pair sitting in my closet but they have a nasty stain on them. Does anyone know how to get a stain out of satin shoes?

DJ? Check!

My DJ contract has been sent! I will be using the services of DJ Frank from SP Entertainment. If you have yet to find a DJ, you should really check them out. I don't know about the other DJ's but Frank has been nothing but great so far. Their rates aren't too bad either.

I've got about 5 months left before the wedding and I feel like I am so behind! Next on my list: Officiant and Invitations!

veil in the mail!

After giving it much thought, I have finally decided on wearing a veil. My biggest problem is finalizing decisions because once a decision is made final, I hate thinking I can't go back on it (I can but it would cost me). Initially, I had decided on not going with a veil. I figured I would just wear a nice flower and call it a day. Veils are so expensive anyway. I had already convinced myself I didn't want one nor did I need one. Then the other day, I was looking at my photographers blog and saw how amazing the pictures are when the veil is blowing in the wind, or when the bride puts it over her groom and they kiss. This made me really want one so I can have one of those pictures too. So I decided to check out ebay and I found a 1 tier fingertip length veil with a pencil edge for $18 bucks that I liked. I showed the hubby to see what he thought (really I just wanted him to tell me I should get it because I needed the extra push) and he said I should get it :] So there you have it, tomorrow my veil will be in the mail! YAY!

I'm pretty sure I'll still wear a flower or at least a decorative comb because I am going to take my veil off for the reception. I'm also pretty sure (for now) that I want my hair to look something like this:

afterall, I have been trying to grow my hair out for the wedding. But I can't help longing for a beautiful updo like this:

sigh... I'm so indecisive.

hi again!

OMG! I have been so absent! I took a huge break from wedding planning (too long of a break) but I'm totally ready to get back into things. There are about 5 months left which means I need to get the ball rolling!!!

I just decided on a DJ and am going to be sending in the deposit soon. He is an awesome guy and is very attentive.

Next on the list is officiant and invitations!

He's coming home!

The hubby comes home for R&R in a month!!! We're going to have so much stuff to do while he's home. First off, he's gotta go see the place we're having it at. He's gonna have to get fitted along with the other groomsmen. We have to go choose a cake. We're going have to do our registry. Thats all I can think of for now but I want to include him as much as possible while he's home!!

I cant wait! :D

I've taken a HUGE break from planning because of the holidays and stuff and I've gotta get back into it!

alterations halp!

I'm a little disappointed right now because I picked up my dress and its not as fitted as I would like it to be. Sooo.. I'm going to need to have it altered.

Does anyone know of a good seamstress or a good place I can go to in the LA area where I can get my dress altered for cheap? I would really appreciate any info! Thanks!
