Secret blogger.

Last night I asked my fiance if he ever reads my blog...
He looked up, confused and responded "you have a blog?"
My question is- Do your boys know you blog?

Photo idea

This photo was featured on I can't decide whether it's better done during the engagement session or on the day of...
Either way, it's such a wonderful idea and I'm shamlessly stealing it.

Very soon after my engagement, as I was just discovering the vast world of bridal blogging, I discovered and fell a little bit in love with Kristina of a lovely morning. Clearly you must already know her, right? She seems to have celebrity status in this world of all things wedding.

Her invitations totally inspired me and really kind of helped me decide on my wedding colors (black and white) and gave me a clear idea of the kind of invitations I had to have. I had been unsure whether or not letter press was truly worth the extra money, but after seeing her invitations I knewthis was non-negotiable. I became completely obsessed with the idea of placing some calligraphy within the invitation. Oh, and the black envelopes with the white printing.... perfection.

I decided that mine would have to be square in shape, and include our custom silhouettes at the top of the invitation. And, of course, envelope liners would be mandatory. I have been casually corresponding with someone to make my letter pressed dreams come true. But today, I discovered these guys on the Bella Figura website. Aren't they elegant?

I am waiting on a quote with all of the little extras that I am hoping for... I'll keep you posted.

The first of many?

So, I had my first freak-out/melt-down/"oh my god, what was I thinking?!" bridal experience. I don't feel terribly guilty to be honest, I feel like I was due one of them...

I decided that I hated the bridesmaid dress that I had chosen and had asked my girls to purchase. Oops. I'm lucky that I have wonderful friends who took it in stride (at least to my face). The original dresses were returned and I chose a new dress that I am so, so much happier with. See below, in black.

It's funny because with all of my decisions I have moved so slowly and weighed (and reweighed) all of my options, but I acted impulsively on the bridesmaid dress. I have no idea why. Let this be a lesson to me. Start early, take your time and sleep on it!
