Wonderful Adventures of Wedding Weightloss
So just liked everyone else, I wanted to lose weight before my wedding! I was a little discouraged when I downloaded the Wedding Wire app on my iphone to keep track of the wedding better. On there it said that I should have started my workout routine in NOVEMBER!
WelllllI I didn't start until just now! So I thought I would get on here, keep you ladies updated and possibly even post recipies and secrets that have been working for me!!!
Good luck but ALWAYS remember...the person who asked you to marry them, ALREADY loves you for what you look like. Don't kill yourself working out or get discouraged!!
ANY ENCOURAGEMENT/ADVICE is appreciated!!!!!!!!! THANKS
1/23 - 185.3lbs - Oh goodness here goes, going to the store RIGHT now to buy
2/3 - 177.4lbs - Can't believe weight came off that fast! Just eating fish,yogurt, salads,& water!!!
2/5 - 175.3lbs - Water is getting harder to drink b/c I dont really like it! I found a few options that have saved my life! Hansens diet sodas (kiwi/strawb) ZERO everything and SO good!, Propel (all flavors), crystal light packets. If there's a way around drinking water, I'll find it!
TABLE NUMBERS THAT DON'T COST AN ARM AND A LEG!
I can make these for you! I made my own! After looking around for exactly what I wanted and not finding it, I made my own! I know some of you have been looking for table numbers just like I was and it's SO hard to find them for a DECENT price!
I will be willing to make anyone else's who wants some! All I need is the information of what you want them to look like and then how many you need! These can be ANY COLORS you want and I made them front AND back.
I also made tags for my flip flop basket and these colors can be anything you want! I'll do 50 for $25
If you need more than 20, let me know! Hopefully this will help you guys AND they will be CUSTOM made for YOU so you don't have to search for something you LIKE, you can have something you LOVE!
Good luck ladies and happy wedding planning!
Share a Deal
So i figured I would help some of you ladies out, since I already did ALL the research!
If you're wanting to use sparklers for your send off and you haven't found ANY good prices....I FOUND SOME CHEAP ONES!
Go to Phantom Fireworks...
I just went to google and typed that in. It will take you to their site!
They have 72 sparklers for $9.99. Most places I have looked are WAY more expensive than that. If you find any that are cheaper, SHARE A DEAL!
Happy Sparkler Hunting Ladies

Wedding Rings And Jewelry
I just thought I'd show off my ring! I think it's gorgeous, but placing it on top of a beautiful flower....took my breath away :)
I'm also posting my bracelet and earrings that I'm considering wearing for my wedding. My colors are aqua...is it going to look dumb if I wear aqua jewelry?
CUTE picture ideas
I don't know if you guys have been searching through photographs of random strangers like I have, but it helps!
I know I want more than just "normal" headshots for my pictures, so I decided that I would find images that I would like to mock. Hope this helps you ladies with some photography inspiration!
