- Wedding: October 2011
Hello all! I’m Emily, brand new to WeddingBee…I needed somewhere to throw all my wedding questions and thoughts, and I’ve loved reading everything you guys are posting! =o)
I’m getting married October 14, 2011 here in Omaha. Are there any other October brides in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, etc? If so, nice to meet you!
My wedding colors are black and neons. I’m trying to do the neons in a NOT 80s dance party way, and it’s been a fun challenge to keep my theme elegant and interesting instead of kitchy. We’re doing cupcakes so that we can incorporate all the wedding colors.
My bridesmaids dresses will be mismatched black, but with the parameters of being solid black satin and floor length. Then the girls will each have a colored floral bouquet and their groosmen will have matching colored pocket squares. I swear I’m going to make this work!!!
Here’s a picture of me (you’ll have to excuse me holding up the bust on the dress, lol). I just found my dress this weekend in a little town called Wahoo, NE at Nebraska Bridal Outlet. It’s a lace overlay dress with gathering at the waist and a beaded sweetheart neckline. This was a great store for plus size brides looking for outlet priced dresses that aren’t totally hideous!
Anyway, it’s nice to meet you all!
