My first was my corset, I needed it to order my gown. I Love my corset.

Then I got my heart-shaped favor boxes, and a gift card holder, now I’m waiting for the dress to come in 🙂

Probably my dress, or some small piece of decor – I’ve been buying stuff to decorate little by little (I got a bunch of full stuff on clearance last year).

My dress was my first tangible purchase. Then my jewelry, then my shoes, and then my clutch.

My dress, but I won’t count that because it wasn’t exactly tangible until this month.

Purple and clear glass for the centerpieces:

I saw it, decided it had to happen and based the rest of the wedding “theme” off of them! lol

Hmm, I don’t have anything tangible yet for my wedding. My first purchase was my dress (three days after I got engaged). But I won’t get that until May. I really don’t think I have anything tangible yet.

haha, my Fiance and I left the store a couple of weeks ago with our first purchase and when we got back to the car i asked her “so, do you think its weird that the first actual THING that we purchased for the wedding was containers for the candy buffet?”  eh, it might be, but i am so excited about that for our wedding – and we are trying to buy a couple little things every pay check or so

If we aren’t including down payment on venue, so far we’ve only spent about $150 worth of real touch flowers and craft supplies for our DIY bouquets/bouts. My mom bought my wedding dress, alterations, and under garments (over $700). We put $1000 down on our venue + package. 🙂
