Written by blacksand » May 17th, 2012, 10:00 pm:I ordered my dress! Woohoo! I'm so glad I went back alone. They were so much more attentive this time! I think they felt sorry for the poor lonely bride or something, but whatever, I got excellent service! I totally felt like a princess and I just went for it. Bought the dress, a veil, and all undergarments. Hooray! So excited! I already have all my jewelry, so now I just need shoes. And a blusher. I totally forgot to order a blusher today. I meant to, and I just forgot. Oh well.My dress is huge and princessy and my veil is cathedral length with crystals. It's all totally extravagant and like nothing I've ever worn before. And I love it! I think I was just feeling really self-conscious before...like who am I to play dress-up like this? But I have just decided to own it. For one day in my life, I will be extravagant. If I look like a princess, so be it. I will just have to act like one too.
Written by blacksand:My news is that I have fallen in love with a pair of ridiculously expensive shoes. I'm not even a shoe person. I don't ever spend more than $50 on shoes and I don't even notice shoes on other people most of the time. It would be crazy for me to spend a lot of money on wedding shoes. But I want them.

Written by blacksand » August 6th, 2012, 12:09 pm:Going to the bathroom in a ballgown=serious business! It takes some maneuvering! I'm just so glad other people on the internet are talking about it, too. I love that I can google absolutely anything these days!

All I think is wedding!I think you're brain will be racing with thoughts of wedding until the very day! Unfortunately! I kept having wedding dreams and nightmares. Most of the time I was just trying to finish tedious tasks in the dreams and it gave me restless sleep. I think I slept no more than 5 hours at a time in the weeks leading up to the wedding.When people tell you not to sweat the little things they are totally right lol! Two small things that would have seemed like the end of the world before the wedding that didn't go right the day of for me were: My grandpa's vest and tie were supposed to be black like the dads but for some reason he was put in the same color as the groomsmen...honestly I didn't even notice the day of the wedding, but looking back at pictures I noticed that he was in the wrong color! Also one of the flower girls had ripped her decorative flower off of her dress and she didn't match the other FG. There wasn't anything I could do about it. Her mom didn't have the flower for me to put on, so I just didn't make a big deal out of it and the pictures are JUST FINE I'm still waiting on pro pics. I feel like this is taking forever!

Written by blacksand » August 7th, 2012, 11:20 am:I can't believe how quickly the time has passed. gem_anemone is already a married lady, StacylikesSparkles, your wedding is coming up in a matter of days, and February is 6 months away! What?!?!
Written by blacksand » August 9th, 2012, 8:18 am:I would like to just hit the pause button for a bit; I need more time to regroup and figure things out. We still don't know for sure where our ceremony is going to take place nor who will officiate (long story, religious complications), and we probably won't know until a month or two before the wedding. This is driving me absolutely insane. I need more time!But, on the other hand, I want to get married TODAY.
Written by StacylikesSparkles » August 7th, 2012, 12:19 pm:Ladies, it is NUTS that I'm getting married so quickly! Time is passing by at warp speed! I remember talking about it being 100 days and that feels like last week lol...I have a TON to do, but everything seems to be coming together quick nicely. I say this and when I get home I'll be thinking of doing a dozen more things that I wasn't originally planning on.Yay for December 22 and February 2nd (My parents anniversary, by the way!)...It will be here before you know it!
