Blue Wedding Dresses

I did some digging and played with the color changer on both Dessy's After Six and Alfred Angelo's sites and came up with the following dresses for myself, in no particular order. I really dig the pop of color and the fact that all the dresses can be reworn over and over again!


Interesting Turn of Events

I had no idea until today at lunch that Steve had no idea that we were having a bridal party in Vegas. since his family isn't attending, as in his brother who would be a best man in a traditional wedding, he thought we were just going out there with a few friends to get hitched. nothing formal, nothing traditional, nothing wedding-y. he just said that the more traditional my outfit is (closer to white), then more traditional things will turn out even though we're heading to Vegas to do the most untraditional wedding possible.

huh. I had no idea. I wonder who in the bridal party would still want to attend. Ii mean, my brother and Cathy are totally still attending as our family representation. but I've heard rumblings about the date falling on a Sunday and us staying out there for 5 days and some other stuff. With zero obligations to attend, I actually wonder how many guests we'd have. Oh yeah, it's a trip to Vegas with a 2-3 hour ceremony/ cupcake party.

In this light, I do think I'll be buying a blue dress, pale blue likely, so I can wear it multiple times. I have a picture in my mind of what I want, but haven't found it yet. Big poofy skirt that I can puff out with lots of crinoline to be super cute 50s chicky.

There was a family event in Miami on Saturday and I was informed afterwards that our wedding was a topic of conversation since a lot of them follow my updates on Facebook. my older brother was telling everyone to "be there or be square!" um, no. i told him that it's going to be a small wedding with just a handful of friends. he said that I needed to stop telling everyone the date and the location if I didn't want people there. I corrected him and said that the date and location, being the entire city of Las Vegas, is out there for anyone to know, but the specific location, like the actual ceremony location, will only be told to the guests we want in attendance. he got all huffy. sure, I'll be inviting family and knowing that 95% of them won't be in attendance due to a variety of reasons.

Also, big news, I've been emailed by the girl buying my dress that she's going to be able to pay me by the end of the week. She confirmed the amount tonight. YAY!

outfit conundrum

dresses are David's Bridal

My MOH and I went last night to try on a bunch of dresses at David's Bridal. I fell in love with the one above in brown, but in either the silver or champagne colors.  the problem is the varying shades of blue in my outfit. maybe I really do need to pic a shade and stick with it.

my veil yarn is a creamy ivory color and will be edged in a few rows each of orange and blue. pattern progress above. seriously, most amazing thing I've knit since I started knitting and 2nd major lace project. Abby's garter was the first.
I just saw a pair of absolute beauties on Zappos and I'm kinda in love with them... they're royal blue with bling bling on both straps. Yeah, I think I'm just going to buy them... lol

so which color dress do you think I should choose?

overdue post

the paper for the ketubah has been ordered and is in my hot little hands! it's white, 12x12, and non-textured. i need to send 10-12 sheets to our calligrapher, Amanda, in Gainesville. unfortunately, she'll be out of town when i'm there next week visiting.

from the same company, Paper & More, i ordered 3 different colors of envelopes for our wedding invites: dark metallic blue, and metallic copper.

i'm leaning towards the dark blue ones, but the copper ones are in the running as well. whatcha think? keep in mind that our invitations are black with white lettering and the nighttime Vegas skyline, and our colors are orange, blue and ivory.  i also order a sample for my graduation announcements in a deep purple. they're so pretty!

my shoes have been ordered and are about as damn cute as can be! they're turquoise with a small little kitten heel, about 1.5" and they're mary jane's. so effing cute!

my veil is coming along really nicely! i'm at row 61 of about 126 rows. the 61st row is 388 stitches. the last row is about 800 stitches. i'm no where near halfway done with it. but damn, it's gorgeous! i really need to take an updated picture of it to show y'all. but not tonight seeing as it's already after 1am! :)
