Yes.. I am counting down. 5 months and 28 days till my happily ever after really begins!! Call me a little over eager... but I have already got a great start on planning. I know I have been "officially" engaged for a week but so far the temple is booked, the reception center is reserved, photography and videography is booked, and as of last night I have my dress!!!! First place I went and second dress I tried on. It is absolutely beautiful. It seriously took my breath away. I wish I could post pics of it but I cant let Ryan see it!!! If you want to see it though let me know and I can email some pictures to you. But I must say... much like my ring.. pictures does not do it justice. The place we went is called fairy godmother. Its just a lady that does it out of her house. She had lots of selection and the personal help was wonderful. But every other dress that I tried on after mine just didn't compare in the least. I am so excited to wear it!! And another thing that is great... its was a size 2!!!! But this means I better not gain anything these next 6 months or else I will have problems. haha
Although I have checked a big thing off my list... it creates a few more things that I need to check off. Now I need to figure out my jewelry, veil, boustier, hoop skirt, and of course my shoes. My mother and I are going to try to make my veil... how hard could this be??? We will have to see how it goes. I am also considering decorating my own shoes... but they are going to have to live up to my dress... which might be difficult. If anyone knows of someone who has a hoop skirt that goes under the dress that makes it more poofy or knows of a place to get a boustier at a good price PLEASE let me know. :) We got a really good deal on my dress but its always nice saving money on these little things.
My next obstacle is going to be floral. I have been looking around, but I am totally open to suggestions. If you know of someone that does flowers at a good price this information would be appreciated!!
I'm really hoping that the time to my wedding will fly. I am WAY too excited.
