Got Weddings on the Brain

April 15, 2011

It’s wedding season, and I’m getting married in 3 months!  I’m also hosting a bridal shower for my best friend Elizabeth next weekend, which has me completely stressed out!  Last night i had a dream nightmare that I had somehow forgotten about the bridal shower and everyone started showing up to my house and I had nothing prepared, and my house was a mess because of our many animals.  Talk about a stressful dream!  I woke up abruptly in the middle of it and then couldn’t go back to sleep because I was thinking about everything I had to do for the shower.

So, to de-stress myself, I browsed through the wedding section on Etsy, and boy oh boy did I find some gems!  Literally!

Like this gorgeous crystal bridal bouquet wrap.  I wonder if there’s an easy way to make this myself?  The price tag on this thing is a whopping $339!  That’s more than my dress cost.  No thank you!

I also found this beautiful hair comb.  I definitely want something like this.  I originally though I wanted a tiara, but I’ll just have to see which looks better with my hair style.

And what about these cuties!?  The only problem with these hangers is that they’ll only be used 1 day, and I want to get my bridesmaids something they can use all the time.  I mean, I guess they can use them after the wedding, but they’ll only be cute for one day, and then they’ll just get mixed up with all the other hangers in their closets.  It’s a cute idea though!

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect earrings and necklace.  I want something pretty and simple…..

…like this.  Wow, I just noticed that there’s a little piece of hair or lint on that earring.  Haha!  I wonder if the Etsy shop owner knows that.  That’s kinda grody.  But nevertheless, this is kinda the style I want as far as earrings go (minus the hair).

I still need to take my dress to a seamstress to have a bustle put in, but other than that, my dress fits perfectly!  What a relief!!  Now back to stressing over Elizabeth’s shower.

    I have been stressing about my wedding too. It’s strange because during the day I am totally relaxed and don’t really think about it because everything is pretty much done with the wedding, but I have been having the wierdest dreams/nightmares and I can’t really sleep. My wedding is in 36 days so I am in the final countdown right now. Still can’t believe it came up so fast!!! Good luck with the bridal shower! I know everything will fall into place, we just had mine this past weekend and everything went so well (other than I somehow lost my keys, but we just found them today :D)

    Your dress fits perfectly? Yeah!!! You did it! Are you done, or still losing? Amazing that you lost all those pounds and still maintained your blog with all these yummy recipes!

    The shower will be wonderful. . . I am sure. The people who never worry about anything are often the ones who forget some of the most important stuff. I always make a list of jobs to be done and check them off as I go, just so I don’t forget something at the last minute. But then, as my daughter, you already know that! LOL 🙂

    I am sure everything will turn out nicely this coming weekend and for your wedding ,as well. 🙂 I remember one of my wedding nightmares involved my dress being emerald green and from the 18th century. Moral of the story: it was just a dream, thank God! 🙂
