April Wedding Planning

So my alterations were finished within three days! I have to say my secret alteration service is quite the deal. She had 60 years of experience and her rooms were filled with wedding dresses! This time I had my mom with me. With her blessings, I felt even more at ease. I couldn't be happier with the results. If anyone needs a good hook-up in alterations, please let me know!

I am so so sooooo excited! I am ecstatic! Once I put on that gown, it just felt like, "This is the one! I look like a bride. I will marrying the man of my dreams in this dress. I will be celebrating in this dress..." Out loud I kept saying, "Hell yes!" hahahaha. The thoughts kept going on in my head. It just felt like the perfect moment. All I need now is a veil, a bird cage and jewellery!

Oh yeah and I found my shoes too! It was on sale! hehehe. Extra sparkly! Will show soon!

April is ending soon. Four months away. With my wedding dress alterations completed, along with my wedding shoes, and an ordered wedding cake, I feel like I made a lot of progress this month. Fingers crossed to finish much much more=)

Until then=)

It feels like I've done so much in the past couple of weeks. But there are so many things that aren't set in stone just yet. I'm still weighing out my options in wedding decor, flower bouquets, music, and wedding cake. I have, however, chosen my wedding shoes yesterday. 

I went to my first dress fitting today. I went alone and was pretty nervous about it. Some of the things I wanted to change was the length, the corsette area, taking out a flower, and adding a bustle. I have to say, this place that I found for alterations was truly amazing. The prices cannot be beat. She was so attentive and even offered a custom veil for $30. This tiny little lady just tagged and pinned everything under 30 minutes. 

Please let me know if you would like more information on alterations!

DIY Wedding Invitations

I thought I had all my invitations prepared, but apparently the parents took all the cards so now here I'm back to square one.

I originally wanted to make my whimsical one. However, after much thought and spur of the moment, I have pulled something out something just-right-for-me.

- Michaels: Arts and Craft Store and it's discounts
  >> Card Stock
  >> Card Cover

- Printing Studio (I found one for cheap!) and they even cut the paper for me!
