what is your beauty/workout routine looking like?:  I work out from time to time, I’m naturally petite and about 85lbs! So I don’t really work out too much.

what will your guestbook be?:

Since we’re having a very small, family oriented wedding, I don’t really think we’ll have one, but I am having a time capsule box that all my family and the select one or two friends on both sides can put advice/words of wisdom or predictions in for our first anniversary :).

where will you be getting ready?: We’re renting a beach house for the wedding day – so I will be kicking my hubby out of our room and take it over with the girls πŸ™‚ We’ll have the entire top floor of the 3 story beach house with the kitchen and everything, but he’ll have the rest of the house and probably won’t take as long :P.

How many days do you have left?: 116

Pic of your dress: being custome designed by local designer…no actual pic. 

Inspiration pic…my dress is not a replica…the pic below is just a guideline. 

how many people are you inviting?: around 115 (including children), hoping 100 show.

when are you sending out invites?:  latest, end of March. Just sent the invites to the printers yesterday. 

what is your beauty/workout routine looking like?: My gym membership just ended last month, so I am actually planning on ordering BeachBody Brazillian Butt Lift workout kit. Also I will need to find another gym so I can hit the treadmill and eliptical. 

what will your guestbook be?: I am thinking of a pure photobook. No words, no blank spots, guest just sign on our faces. The second option is a large blown up pic, where huest sign the mat, but I am leaning towards the first. 

what is your next wedding related appointment?: Humm, just had the menu testing this past weekend. We do have to finalize one more thing for the cakes (we are having 2, long story). I know I have to go with my bridesmaids to pic out their dresses (that may be next), they each get a different dress. 

what is the next wedding-related thing you have to buy?: A large rubber stamp with our monogram for our invites. 

who is your wedding officiant?: we are most likely having 2, our first choice is our personal confidant at our church, he just became licensed, but his baby will just be born a couple weeks earlier, so we will also have our pastor do it with him, and if the one cannot show up (in case baby is over due) the pastor can do it alone. We love both of them!

what do your wedding bands look like?: I designed his band, so far his will be yellow gold, with a white gold strip running in the middle at the top of the band (so only half of the band in the middle). In the white gold, alternating black and white diamonds will be set, with space between each, about 7 small pave diamond. 

Mine so far, will be a ring jacket (wrap) that is actually one band. It’s a spiral band that wraps around my e-ring setting, the band crosses over the bottom of my e-ring. The band yellow gold, the setting white gold with alternation white and black diamonds.

This is custom design and only exsists so far in a computer image. I may change my mind to a semi-eternity band with alternating black and white diamonds. 

where will you be getting ready?: The girls and I will be getting ready on the 3rd floor room of our venue (where the entire wedding is held). The guys also will get ready at the same hotel, but on the 2nd floor, opposite end of the hotel. 

what time does your ceremony start?: 3PM

where are you registered? no registry yet, will do closer to the shower planning.

what are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?: walking down the asile. oh and the party…I didn’t put all the work in the party to not enjoy!
