weddingness

i am all about wedding planning right now, and i am on a roll! six months left :D

yesterday, brandon's shirt and shoes arrived from the men's wearhouse. i made him try on everything (and his pants, which he bought some time ago), and he looks great in his wedding gear!

i haven't bought my dress yet (wanting to lose some more weight first...), but here's "the one":


it's from nicole miller, and it is outrageously expensive ($1600?!), but since i own at finding great deals, we can afford it because of all the money i saved us elsewhere in the budget (the chick in the picture is definately not me, by the way). i've already tried it on once at this fabulous little boutique in austin, but my best friend sarah's coming with me to buy it next month, and i can't wait for her to see me in it! and on that note, i can't wait for brandon to see me in it even more! :)

last night i found the perfect shoes:

so cute, and only $15! they're exactly what i was looking for. i got lucky :).

and of course, i've already shown you the tiara i bought from my friend lara. that's pretty much my wedding day ensemble! oh, and i am going to be wearing this jewelry set that brandon bought me about a year ago from dharmacrafts (one of my absolute favourite shops):


ignore the necklace on the top right. the one i have is the double-necklace on the left, and the earrings. so beautiful, and perfect for my wedding!

also, i still have a dozen invitations to make, but i managed to finish making a batch of 75 very cool wedding favours! i can't tell you what they are quite yet (it has to do with the surprise new items i'm going to list in my shop soon!), but i will show you soon, i promise! hopefully they are a big hit. as far as i know, no one on etsy is selling these, and i'd like to be the only one, at least for a little while, heehee.

well, i suppose it's time to prepare lunch for that fiance of mine. chicken sandwiches and tater tots sound good? :)

<3,
melissa
