My dress will be here in two weeks! I have to go back down to the Nicole Miller store in LA to pick it up! If you watch The Bachelorette, the silver roushed (sp?) strapless dress she wore two weeks ago was very similiar to my dress, but mine is ivory and doesn't have nearly as much roushing. It is very fitted and has a similar train! I am anxious to see it again in person!
Also, we have finally figured out the wedding party!
- Maid of Honor: Helya Sahami
- Bridesmaid: Heather Mohr
- Bridesmaid: Jillian Coffelt
- Bridesmaid: Joanna Schafhausen
- Bridesmaid: Rachel Connors
- Groomsman: Jim Dwight (Steve's Dad)
- Groomsman: Jim Bass (Steve's Step-dad)
I've also decided on wedding colors: spring greens, corals/oranges/peaches (okay so not exactly, but in that color palette!)
And we've booked the photographer: Michael and Maren from Applemoon Photography
Other than that I am still looking through magazines and wedding blogs for inspiration! My mom has taken some flower arranging classes and it sounds like we might be doing all of our flowers ourselves as well! The next things on the to-do list are to find a brooch for my dress, bridesmaid dresses, and something for the guys to wear. I've been having a lot of fun just dreaming up ideas and finding colors that inspire me!
We still have to figure out where we are registering, but probably Crate and Barrel and Home Depot for sure. The other big decision is the honeymoon!! We're thinking either Vancouver or Hawaii.
That's it for now!
