May Wrap-up & June Gear up

Surprise, I didn’t really make much progress on my May agenda so over they go to June. I did start pricing BM dresses but then changed my mind for two of them. I sent out my save the dates and realized that I can't really do the programs this early.  I plan on putting the seating assignments on the back of the programs so I guess I should wait for the RSVPs. ::rolls eyes::

Aisle New York

I've been meaning to write about this site for a while but I keep getting distracted. In any event Aisle New York is a luxe wedding discount site ala Gilt Groupe I guess. It's free to register and they hold weekly sales from a variety of different designers. I've been stalking them for a bit and I think I've come across some wedding day accessories. It's not like super cheap. The stuff can get pricey but if you were already looking at a $4,000 wedding dress it's possible you could find it discounted to $2,000. Not bad. If nothing else, the stuff is super rad to look at and you could maybe get a deal on a  splurge item.

This week's sale is Jenny Packham for dresses and Untamed Petals for accessories.

I keep getting inspired (read: changing my mind). I’ve gone through at least five reception table concepts. I figure if I had been able to get a quote on any one of my visions (barring the super expensive quote) I’d have committed to a concept already. Alas, I don’t think I’m making that commitment anytime soon. The irony is that the longer it takes to get a quote, the more the flower budget shrinks and wilts.  I’ve been trying to price flowers since November! Sigh. On to the pretty pictures.

I'm still stuck on carnations for the reception.  Check out these dreamy confections!

Did I Do That? - Reprise*

*I'm soooo ticked at Blogger for losing my original post and not fixing it yet. I don't even have the energy to redo it properly. Plus, I really can't remember how it was originally.
I just checked another major thing off my to-do list. I booked my makeup artist. Here’s the thing. . . I didn’t do a trial and I technically haven’t even spoken to her. Whoops? We emailed back and forth and then BAM! I booked her. It’s a package deal so she’ll do the makeup for the bridal party as well. Now of course I did my due diligence on the internet. And wanna know something cool?

Well folks, there’s no going back now. I sent out my {sort of} save the dates.

Light it up!

From the outset I knew I wanted pretty lights, pretty purple lights to be specific.  Perhaps a picture will help.

Etsy Rundown

So far I’ve had really good luck with Etsy purchases.  Let’s take a look at these awesome sellers.

It's Instrumental Baby!

I love making decisions! I've decided that all the ceremony music will be instrumentals. We won't have live musicians so I found the next best thing. The Vitamin String Quartet. Genius! Did you ever like a song for the music but not necessarily the lyrics? Problem solved. Lose the words.  The last one isn't the instrumental version but the opening is just so delicious.

April Wrap-up & May Gear up

April wasn’t that bad. I did manage to get a few things accomplished but I still have some unfinished business. May is the month of unfinished business. After all . . .

Previously. . .

We spent a full week visiting 9 bridal salons in search of "the" dress & learned some lessons along the way.

There's been a bit of drama with the venue. Sister don't play that here or there!

We met some photographers, picked a videographer, picked a DJ

Had a few ideas about flowers.

And that's what you missed on Hearts & Whimsy!
