My dress is here!

Going to search for my David Tutera for Mon Cheri dress made this whole wedding planning experience that much more real. Since then, there have been several months that have passed. I have to admit, I almost forgot that I had picked out a dress.

This past week, though, everything became VERY real! MY DRESS CAME IN!! It’s actually a tangible item! I had it delivered at work, so that I would be sure to sign off on the delivery. I am so glad that I went this route. I was able to share the excitement of opening up the box with my coworkers, who have been eagerly anticipating every big step in this whole process.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am dying to show you guys which one I picked but for the sake of a great surprise, you’ll have to wait a bit!

Where Should I Hide My Dress?

Posted on January 24, 2015 by  Miss Glam Bride   //   Comment

Since my dress has arrived, I now need to figure out where to keep it.

I live in an apartment with my fiance, and there isn’t much space to hide a wedding dress. I actually asked him if I could trust him to not peek. After thinking for a minute, he looked me straight in the eyes and told me “No!” Well, at least he was being honest.

It’s probably too soon to begin my alterations, so I’m going to need to keep it somewhere in the meantime. I’m thinking I may just bring it home to my parents’ house in Florida. Since my mom will be present at every alteration appointment, she can just bring it up when she comes. After that, it can stay with the seamstress while she continues to alter it. That way, I don’t have to worry about my fiance ruining the surprise and taking a look at my dress.

I would love to hear how you all kept your wedding dresses top secret.

Touching, but Not Seeing

Posted on January 24, 2015 by  Miss City Lights Bride   //   Comment

With our wedding day schedule, we have to do a first look; we just don’t have enough time to wait until after our ceremony to take pictures. While I am happy about this, I do enjoy seeing pictures of couples holding hands or even hugging blindfolded before their ceremony. It’s a simple, sweet gesture to calm each others’ nerves, while still remaining traditional.

What do you think about the first touch versus the first look?

Yup! I’m in Nashville, TN! The band guys and I are here working with a producer to launch our second record! So exciting!

As we drove down here, I was completely surrounded by beautiful landscapes and was inspired by the serene feel of a country-themed wedding.

A Colorful Getaway

Posted on January 23, 2015 by  Miss Rustic-Chic Bride   //   Comment

I love the look of a colorful wedding getaway picture, but most wedding venues have restrictions on what you can throw so that too much of a mess is not left behind.

Confetti looks great in the pictures, but isn’t environmentally friendly and at a place like my wedding venue where the getaway area is brick, that would be a mess to get cleaned up!

Rainbow sprinkles are another cute option, but could attract bugs, birds or rodents. Also, I’m not sure if the sprinkles would hurt if they are coming from all angles!

So I think I found an alternative to accomplish my colorful getaway which is with these felt poms. That will give me the same look, won’t hurt and will much easier to clean up – which my wedding planner agreed to do! Can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out!
