- Wedding: April 2018
Hello all, What a weird week it’s been! Before Vday I was secretly hoping SO would propose on Vday but he didn’t, I got upset had a mini meltdown (which I posted about) and then he admitted that he has the ring, so now we’re openly talking about our future wedding and I’m not stressing him about when it will happen because I know he has a plan and things are set in motion. So today SO and I were outlet shopping and he dragged me into a couple of his stores so I dragged him into one of mine… a clothing outlet that also has bridal gowns (one of my best friends just bought her dress there in fact) under the guise of finding a dress to wear to afore mentioned friend’s wedding in October. In reality I was looking to see if they had any dresses that might pass as bridesmaids dresses in the color I want… I’m very particular about this color. Anyway SO and I were browsing around the dresses, but I wasn’t aiming anywhere close to the Bridal section, when SO wandered off and ended up glancing at the Bridal Gowns. I saw him, walked over and he started ranting about how the prices were outrageous for those gowns (umm $200 to $600 for a wedding gown isn’t bad!) and that they were all ugly (I saw a couple I liked, and I pointed out my friend’s gown which was still there) and then he asked me if I had seen any other gowns I liked from different stores and asked how much they were… I told him about a gown I’ve fallen in love with from DB which is moderately priced at $550 he then tells me that it’s too cheap and that we want the best for our wedding. I laughed because he’s all over the map lol We didn’t get into finances on the wedding, but we proceeded to go to 2 craft stores where I bought a few items for DIYing… of course, for the future wedding. lol So now I have:
150 plastic gift bags,
10 yards of ribbon for my bouquet,
60 yards of ribbon… some for the trim on my veil, the rest for the invitations…
Tulle for my veil,
hair combs for the veil,
100 heart rhinestones for the invites,
and pens(those new inkjoy pens that are amazing) in my color.
Any other bees stockpiling while waiting? What do you have already? Does SO know?
