Sadly, I can't find the cord for my camera to upload photos. :(
Not that I took that many.
Sometimes I get so busy "doing" that I forget to "chronicle" the event!
We figured out the best system for the seating chart. I can't wait to show it to you. And the programs are awesome. Totally awesome. Make up was...okay. Loved my eyes and the foundation - could do without the rest.
We met with Pastor, our ceremony coordinator, and our reception coordinator. Everything is under control.
AND I got my cake topper today! Goodness. If I could just find that dang camera cord!

This weekend? This is the last full weekend I will have at home before the wedding!
Next weekend I will be in Chicago. The next weekend I will be here, enjoying my Bachelorette Party. I may be able to spend a day or so in Venice, but not the full weekend.
So this weekend will be packed. Absolutely packed.
Our Saturday schedule?
8:45am - Meet with ceremony coordinator
10:00am - Meet with Pastor
1:00pm - Meet with reception coordinator
4:30pm - Make Up Trial
Not to mention all the other things we need to do - figure out seating arrangements, table numbers, place cards, etc etc!
Whew. It is going to be a busy weekend. :)

I have been hearing a lot about bridal portraits around the wedding blogs. I never really thought about having them done, but everytime I walk around the campus where I work, I get the idea in my head.
Why? The campus is BEAUTIFUL. It would be the perfect place for bridal portraits! Just look at how beautiful this architecture is.
And that's only a small taste. I feel like I may have missed my window of opportunity for bridal portraits...unless Super Crafty Sister feels like taking them after my make up trial on Saturday. :)
And no, it's not an option to have wedding portraits here - we will be getting married an hour away. Sigh.
Will you (or did you) do bridal portraits? Why or why not?

It's been one of those days.
My fiance felt it yesterday. Today is my turn.
Could someone please just wave a magic wand and make my student loans go away?
That would be great. Thanks.

Hair trial? Check.
Rehearsal dinner dress? Check.
Dessert table? Check.
Table number holders? Check.
But you have to wait to see our decisions. With less than four weeks until the wedding, we have to keep some suprises! :)

And tomorrow is the deadline. I MUST order a cake!
I have looked at so many pictures of cakes. I've talked before about how I learn visually. It is hard for me to imagine in my mind what something will look like. I think this is what makes the cake design so tough - I like pieces of different cakes, but have no idea how they will look together!
I know I want buttercream (or cream cheese) frosting. And I know what the flavors will be. But the rest is a mystery to me.
I pulled all the photos from my "cake inspiration" folder (once again with no sources - dangit). Can anyone make sense of all these and tell me what I want my cake to look like? Thanks.
Let me first confess - I am no hair fashionista. Oh no. I spend maybe 5 minutes on my hair. If that long. This is how my hair usually ends up. Lovely, no? :)
Second confession? I have issues with my profile. Yes. As in that my chin is not as big as I would like it to be. (Does that make sense?) Because of this, when I dress up, I tend to like my hair down. Maybe I think it hides it? And my groom likes my hair down too.
So when I started thinking about bridal hairstyles, these were the inspiration photos I found. (Sorry to be a bad blogger, but I have no idea where I found these! Most are probably from WeddingBee, Project Wedding, or The Knot.)

The started with a piece of wood, some wallpaper, and frames...
Cut holes for the big frames, and put wedding pictures from their families in the other frames...
And voila! A fabulous photobooth!
I love this. Absolutely love it. Found here.
I saw this photo today on Gresham Photography (friends from college by the way!) and about laughed out loud. Too cute. :)
I am a terrible dancer.
I make my fiance laugh all the time because of my terrible dance moves.
But it doesn't deter this dancer. Oh no.
You better believe I will be bustin' a move at the reception.
I love this movie scene - these people ain't got nothing on me! :)

Sorry for the delay in getting the pictures from the Honeymoon Shower to you - but here they are!
My friends have a fantastic backyard. The day started with some ladderball (such a fun game!)
And then our friend Nathan fired up the grill...
As the rest of us lounged by the pool. :)
After we ate, we opened presents. This is where the hilarity began.
We started with some "normal" gifts...
And then got a funny gag gift (my friends' re-gifted this - can you believe someone bought this for them for their wedding??)
And I love this last picture. This is one of the many reasons I am marrying this man. He makes me laugh like this.
Yes, I have quite the expressive face. And yes, when I get really good into a laugh, I throw my head back just like this. Nothing quite like a good laugh.
So there you have it...our Honeymoon Shower. Wonderful memories with wonderful friends.
