First I had to do my homework. She told me to tear pages out of magazines, of styles I liked. She said that tearing stuff out of magazines is fun, and would keep me from freaking out. She must know me? Or maybe all brides are like that!
So I bought a couple magazines and tore the pages out. Here's a sample:
|I actually tore this dress out twice, it's that awesome!|
|Seeing a pattern?|
|Not the dress I'll be wearing.|
I also explored veil options. I really liked the idea of a wrap-around blusher but when I put this one on it was too close to my face. See, that's me tugging it to keep it from strangling my nose. (Can you strangle a nose?)
|My mom made just about everything from scratch, including baklava, 2 pecan pies, the brownie pops, s'mores brownies and dipping chocolate for the fondue in back. It was all delicious!|
|Toasts from my dad and grandfather.|
|Delicious brownie pops. Mom is so cute!|
|My bff Ali. She's getting married 3 weeks before me.|
|Presents. Actually all the bags are empty, gifts are being shipped.|
Good thing, because I didn't want to carry all that home in a suitcase.
