David’s in My Head

Another Sunday. Another episode of My Fair Wedding. Le sigh. I’m left feeling a wee bit inadequate. As this wedding thing approaches I’m starting to hear David in my head.

My First Etsy Purchase

I am beyond thrilled. Yesterday I came home to this wonderful little package waiting for me.  It was an adorable little bag with the cutest little bicycle postage stamps and inside that bag, all the way from Sweden, were the custom rubber stamps I ordered.  Before I show you pictures, let me gush about the seller. She hand-carved the stamps from images I emailed her and they were spot on.  She was such a pleasure to work with and her turnaround time was amazing.  I can’t show you all of them yet because I’m using them for the invitations and on all the other paper products. But I’m super excited so here’s a pic of one of the small ones.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

Please won't you beeeeee. . .

Why am I singing the theme song to Mister Rogers'? I'm so glad you asked. It's because I'm booking a trolley for my wedding shuttle. Remember Trolley?

A Hallmark Production

I've never been one for celebrating this Hallmark produced holiday. Isn't it really just an excuse for couples to shove their "love" in the face of those poor sorry singles? Alas, I have fallen under the spell of V-day this year. It marks a year since "the ring" so I guess we can celebrate and acknowledge the day. Technically, "the ring" showed up around the 11th or the 12th (we don't really remember).  Anywho, Sister was making Valentine's Day cakes so we got one.

Pardon, my so-so pictures. Can you tell it's heart shaped?

What Not to Wear -- Wedding Edition

I’m hoping to have a fun, elegant, whimsical affair. It’s a Friday evening and since I’m getting dressed up I’d like my guests to get dressed up too.

This is good.

Ho-tel Mo-tel Holiday Inn

In better news. . .
Somebody got herself a wedding block at a fancy boutique hotel in Brooklyn. Somebody got herself a discount. Somebody deserves a pat on the back.

Venue Update

Quite frankly the most stressful part of this wedding planning thing has been drama with the venue. Previously on Hearts & Whimsy I thought all the drama was behind me. Well guess who showed up in my in-box the other day?

Death by Design

Holy indecisiveness Batman! Invitation designing has been kicking my butt for most of January!

February Gear Up

My first Etsy purchase – I need to buy rubber stamps for the invites (Trust me this is going to be awesome!)

Seriously, find a florist. Like, seriously

More cake designs -- I'm feeling something with words and clocks. Flourish-y Alice quotes

Guest List -- I was going to try and start collecting addresses for the invitations but I've lost interest in this item. The guest list is still morphing as I add and delete people. I'm going to table this till April. Cool?

Seriously, a florist. I need to get a florist

Try on some bridesmaid dresses. Well not me try them on. Oh, you know what I mean. This may be pushing it for February but I might as well have it on my radar.

Start ordering invitation supplies (paper, boxes (yep, boxes!))

Fitness?? Grrrr

Ummm....stop creating registries (more on this later)

Ask the flower girls

Revisit the budget – Sigh.

Flight discounts (thanks Ms. Cheetah

Research Transportation options -- anybody have any cool ideas?

That's all folks!

Why So Sensitive?

 This blog isn’t supposed to be a place to vent but. . .today I’m making an exception. I hang out on this site called Wedding Bee (perhaps you’ve heard of it?) rather frequently. Pretty much every day, several times a day. It’s a very warm, welcoming environment. It’s a great place to find tips and exchange ideas. You can bounce ideas off fellow brides when everyone in your life gets tired of hearing you talk about the wedding. I love it there but today I got annoyed.

on Hearts & Whimsy we were:

Blessed with words of wisdom from Pippa & The Gentleman.

Sacred, shocked & appalled by a florist quote.

Intrigued by some cake designs.

Relived that our new catering director was going to work with us & not against us. (Mad props to the sister smackdown. Oh snap!)

and...this is my 100th post.
