Dresses are in!

My dress arrived and I went to Betsy Robinson for my "gown visit" this weekend.  When I was there, they told me that the bridesmaid dresses came in, so they're ready to be shipped/picked up whenever you guys are.  If you are having them shipped, call the shop to verify your mailing address because they won't ship them until you do this!

We have almost finished all of the envelopes, and are prepared to send the invites out in early June as expected.  The next big project is the programs.  I'm going to be posting some pages from the programs, so if you guys could help proofread and let me know if there's anything I need to change, I'd really appreciate it!  (Just click on the image to see the text enlarged.)

Wedding Postage

We received our custom wedding postage in the mail this weekend- how cute is that?
All of the invitations are officially done, and we plan to send them out some time in early-mid June.  So far, we have about half of the envelopes printed, stuffed, and stamped. 

Our apartment looks like a disaster right now with all the boxes from things that we've ordered for the wedding!  We received the tall vases and will be experimenting with them this weekend to decide how we want to set up the place card table.  I'll post pictures of that later.

Extra thanks to my bridesmaids for the juicer.  I'm trying to fight off this nasty cold/flu I caught while I was home, so I taught myself how to make my own O.J. yesterday.  Delicious and great for you.  I love it!

Also- I added some new pictures from the bridal shower, so scroll down to the previous post to see them (if you haven't already).

Flower Girl Dresses

I have finally made a decision for the flower girl dresses!  Here's the dress:

It's from The Briar Patch and is an ivory satin dress with a rhinestone accent.  The girls will obviously be wearing the one that is ivory/pink.

Place Card Table

We've been brainstorming some ideas for our place card table and here's what we've come up with.
... 3 tall vases that will hold floating candles or floating flowers- with the possibility of dying the water pink.  We'll also place pink squared votive holders in rows of 3 to separate groups of the place cards.  We ordered a few things this weekend, so we'll experiment when everything arrives.

Here's the inspiration for this idea.  (from TheKnot)

But we're thinking we will do pink water or just leave it as is.  We ordered these vases (3 of them):

And plan to float candles (probably hot pink and black) near the top of the vase:
Here are the votive holders (in pink) that we'll also place on the place card table.

We also ordered some floating candle bowls for the cocktail tables.  We'll probably float candles or gerbera daisies in these:
Still going crazy trying to figure our what I'm going to do about these flower girl dresses. I found one that I really like (and thank you for your "reviews" Christina!), but I am still not certain. Maybe I'll post some pictures of those next time. Can't wait for my shower this weekend- so excited!!

The Bridesmaid Shoes:  (to see them on, click here)
And a cute little clutch to match:
Now I really need to focus in on picking a flower girl dress. I was trying really hard this weekend, but I'm being so indecisive. Plus, it's really difficult to make a decision based on an online picture! I refuse to go to a bridal shop where they'll charge $200 for a dress that these girls will grow out of in a few months. Hopefully I'll be posting an update on my decision soon.

We made our tux selections today at Men's Wearhouse.
