I tried to upload a picture of my dress and I was unable to. I’m having trouble with my PC so I’ve been on my new I Pad. I have to say that this my first time working with a Mac and I have not been able to add any pic’s. Not even sure if it’s possible! I plan on taking a class so as soon as I figure it out I’ll post pic’s.

  • Wedding: October 2012 - Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom

Love love love seeing all the date twins on here! How fun! I have been feeling like there aren’t too many of us 10/13/12 girls since the 13th of the month always has such a superstitious element for some people (not me!)

When did you get engaged? Feb. 20th, 2011

When is your wedding? October 13, 2012

What state or country is your wedding in? Portland, OR

What are your wedding colors? Gold, Ivory, Black, blush pink

What is your wedding theme? Elegant with a touch of whimsy

How many people are you expecting? 170 (praying for this number!!! We have a guest list that is a little too big!)

How large is your bridal party? 8 Bridesmaids, 4 Groomsmen, 1 flower girl, 4 ring bearers

Did you find your dress? Yes! I have been looking at dresses since I was about 16 in bridal magazines and had never seen it until the consultant brought it in to me. I wasn’t sure about it on the hanger, but was crying before she even got it all the way on me! Love it! I can’t wait to show everyone on here after the wedding but Fiance is very tricky and I don’t want him to see it yet!

What do you need help finding or doing? Thinking of what to put on our vellum luminaries on our cocktail tables (about 10 of them). We were thinking Disney quotes about love, but not sure yet…

Are you a DIY bride? Trying to be! I am doing all paper things myself like invites, programs, Save-The-Date Cards, and I made my own pearl bouquet! That was a big project!

Honeymoon? Maui! Fiance has never been and we’re so excited!

When did you get engaged? August 6th, 2011

When is your wedding? October 19, 2012

What state or country is your wedding in? Honolulu, Hawaii

What are your wedding colors? Purple/plum, ivory

What is your wedding theme? Elegant and classy. We’re avoiding the common Hawaiian themed wedding. 

How many people are you expecting? 50+

How large is your bridal party? 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, 2 ring bearers, and 1 flower girl.

Did you find your dress? Yes!! I will be a Maggie Sottero bride! I actually just got the call today that my dress is in, but it will be a while until I get to see her as alterations don’t begin until July. 

What do you need help finding or doing? Currently we’re trying to decide on table numbers or names. 

Are you a DIY bride? Absolutely!! Anything to save some $$. I have made all our bouquets (coffee filter roses – Thank You Martha Stewart!!), we had a DIY kit for our invitations, and I will be making a “here comes the bride” sign for the flower girl and the youngest ring bearer to hold. 

Honeymoon? The Big Island… I’ve only been to Hawaii once before and stayed on Oahu for the entire 2 weeks. My Fiance has been to Hawaii multiple times and has explored many of the islands. We have rented a vacation condo on the Big Island which we’ll fly to the day after the wedding to spend 5 fabulous days together!
