Aww. I like this!


Guest Book: We made a photobook of our engagement pictures and left lots of white space for guests to sign.

First Dance: Ben Harper’s Forever

Shoe Colour: Purple, with sparkly purple bows!

Something old: My grandparent’s wedding bands tied to my bouquet

Something borrowed: A pearl and silver brooch my mom received while living in Japan when she was younger

Something blue: Polo Ralph Lauren Blue purfume 🙂 

Something new: New pearl earrings

Programs: We slapped together a quick program for a Catholic mass on nicer paper (really, nothing fancy). Also listed the main people on there (bridal party, etc)

Decor: You know, we really didn’t have much. Just our beautiful centerpieces, flowers on the cake table, and candy buffet! 🙂 

And I’m adding:

Bouquet/Garter Toss: Nope! We didn’t do either

  • Wedding: October 2012

Guest Book: We’re having our guests sign a photo mat with one of our engagement photos as the center.

First Dance: Our first dance will be on our honeymoon. Or in our living room. Whichever comes first. Wink

Shoe Colour: Not terribly untraditional I guess, but they’re silver sparkly Vera Wang wedge sandals.

Something old: My mom’s garter from my parents wedding from ’79. Still happily married!

Something borrowed: My bra. Yay for the same size boobies as friends!

Something blue: I dyed my crinoline a royal blue. FI’s family is already making faces about us not getting married in a church. I expect to hear some gasps at my pop of color!

Something new: Again, not too untradtional, but my dress/wedding ring.

Programs: No programs.

Decor: Fall primarily with touches of our personalities and intrests. Fiance is a firefighter and I am an equestrian, so there will be a few subtle firefighter touches and hints of ponies. 😉 We’re also using my parents’ 1963 Chevy impala as our getaway car, so there are a few vintage touches.
