Please share your pictures!

As requested by a is what we left out on our guest book table:

front side

back side

The images are from our engagment session! We used VistaPrint, and we used a business card format...and to be honest...our cards didn't say exactly what I'm presenting here. In our cards...I forgot to add "Thank you for being a part of our day!" It was like 3 in the morning, and VistaPrint makes you initial the it's hard to go back and change anything! So if you're gonna go the VistaPrint route, make sure you're awake and attentive!

And the cards actually turned out pretty cute...will try to get a real picture of them soon!

Less than two weeks

is what we have...I'm feeling the pressure!

working on:

-seating chart
-tissue paper flowers a la Martha Stewart (pictures coming...promise!)
-buttons for our seating cards (will have pictures for that too)
-jewelry for my BMs (i have no clue what i'm doing)

also...i see why some brides drastically lose weight within the 2 weeks prior to the wedding. yesterday, after we came home from dance class, i had tried to complete some things off the checklist our coordinator gave us, and the next thing I knew, it was midnight, and i didn't eat dinner. =( i ended up having some cereal to make the stomach noises stop...but man...seriously, not enough hours in the day. i'm taking next week off from work to handle everything else wedding related. time is flying!

ooooo and today...we're getting our marriage license! as in..i have to leave right now to make our appointment!

scent of a bride

I love perfume!! It's a challenge for me every day trying to choose a scent to wear. I do have a few favorites though...but I'm not quite sure what his favorite is of my collection. There's only one time Dee has commented on a scent...and it wasn't mine..=( Ew. the challengers are:

Moschino Cheap and Chic "I Love Love"
I love this perfume. It's a strong scent, and I think it captures my personality in a bottle. Shy but daring to be bold. Source: here

Dolce and Gabbana "Light Blue"
So this is a favorite of a lot of people. I smell it often while I'm walking through the mall. I love it, but I bet I'll smell it on a guest at our wedding. =| Source: here

L.A.M.B. Fragrance

This is my new favorite scent. It's girly with a little rockstar to it. My vote is heavily weighing on the one so far. photo courtesy of instyle.

For him...i hope he wears Calvin Klein's Escape. It's his signature smell, and I love it!

what scent are you wearing/did you wear on your wedding day?

Steve Kahn was at the Huntington Beach ULTA taking headshots with a $65 purchase of Smashbox products...which totally worked out for me because I recently had an allergic reaction to my eye makeup. =( but then yay! cuz I got new makeup. And I got to meet Steve Kahn. Woo hoo!
