Eeeekkk 9 days to go & dont feel ready
Not sure why WBC says 8 but I have 9 days left... and I starting to feel super stressed! Am I the only bride that doesnt feel like she has everything ready for her wedding? I still feel like I have a ton to do and figure out!
I still dont have candy for my candy buffet.
I still dont have a for sure timeline!
I still havent written my vows!
I still havent packed for my honeymoon!
I still havent nailed my first dance!
1 of my bridesmaids still doesnt have a dress!
2 of my groomsmen still have nothing to wear!
And i just checked the weather and my it is called to be hot high if 91 for our outdoor wedding with a 60% chance of rain! Now i have a rain plan for my ceremony but I am not happy with it!
If it rains we will have to get married in the barn but!!! What about my shepards hooks linging my aisles? What about my beautiful outdoor pictures :(
ANd to top if off i have been super tired and grumpy i have been having to pull 6 9 hour shifts a week and today was my last day off till the day before my wedding
Wedding Hair Style
Total look....Hair makeup Dress
I am not sold on the lipstick my friends loved it I hated it but I am not a girl that usually wears lipstick...
This is not the veil i will be wearing this is just a piece of netting we cut to simulate a veil I will have a birdcage veil (its in the mail)
I am still struggling with the placement of my flower.. i would love to be able to see it more from the front when i look at myself but I dunno what do you guys think
Overall I really like the look... though
E- Pics Peek
SO we go tmrw and pick up our disk for over 300 pictures from our 2 part engagement session

Ask a Question
how to seat an uneven guest list
Ask a Question
How to handle seating a drastically uneven guest list?
Sooo...I know that the guest list will change when we send out our Invites and get our RSVP cards but we were starting to talk about seating and all the other day and we ran into a huge problem....
Fiance has a bunch more people then I do invited. The best way we worked it out that it could work for us has caused me to only have 5 rows of people and him to have 8 rows :(
I am not sure how to handle this.... Fiance wants to add an extra row of seats on my side incase some unexpected people show up... or some of the girls from my work decide to come.... he then wants to put one of his rows of guests that probably wont be able to come on my side on the back...
This would give us 7 And 7 but.... I was planning to do a shepard hook with a lantern every other row..... how would I work this with 7 rows? I dont want there to not be one at the begining or end of the aisle.. This still leaves me several empty seats & it does him too just to accomodate everyone being able to sit as families
Can anyone think of a better way? or do you think this would still be ok?

MY DIY Clay Bride
So I am having a clay bride and fireman groom on my cake only I am making it myself.
After 2 other tries I have completed my bride and ready to start working on my groom. She is far from perfect but she is mine and I made her and I love her and am so proud of her.
my DIY fascinator
couldnt seem to get a good pic of it
my amost DIY garter.. as a rocker at heart hehe i love it
Toss garter and what mine originally looked like
My purple Converse
My wedding night attire Black & white for naughty and nice... steal at $9
Bride hankie FH bought me this as part of my V-day Pressie
Wedding Day Accessories
I knew from day one i wanted vintage (which i got somewhat just not all the way) a fascinator, & accessories that just screamed me and who i am ... and that is a rocker at heart... well finding that to fit into my wedding has been no easy task. So here is what I have come up with so far...
My dress has a little more vintage feel since the alterations (yes i will get pics soon promise) and i plan to wear a simple strand of real pearls that i have had for years but never got to wear and a pearl bracelet and two drop pearl earrings.
I made my Fascinator It cost me a grand total of $9.00
I bought 2 matching garters off of here & revamped one of them to fit my style a little better... left the toss garter the same total cost $14
I am also rockin my purple converse down the aisle and to my reception but that was a story in another post.
i guess no wedding day is complete without the night of attire
I got this little number for around $8 at TJ Maxx... i love the black and white ( naughty and nice feel :)
I will also have this little Bride Hankie my boo bear got me as part of my vday pressie tucked away for teary moments
The pictures are my Inspirational Pictures
I plan to hang big purple paper lanterns and smaller white paper lanterns from the ceiling.
We will string white lights around the barn.
I plan to drape the entrance of the barn and place our monogram H on top like the inspiration pic. My centerpieces will be as pictured below
I am going to do a sweetheart table as well I need to come up with some inspiration for that
We will be getting married infront of these two trees... in front of the pond.
Our bridal party will stand on the other side of the trees on their appropriate sides
We will be masking the park bench with our sand ceremony table so you wont even notice it.
We originally planned to have an archway or some sort but felt we didn't need it here... depending on what the trees look like bloomed we might use the wisteria we bought to do the archway in the trees
We will be hanging white paper lanterns in the trees and tucking in a few little purple dragonflys just to give a little sparkle and color
We will be having white chairs... the plain ones with the rounded back (that's what our venue provides)
We will be placing Shepard hooks at every other row with a purple lantern on it
I will have a line of purple petals down each side of the aisle
Since old venue didnt allow real petals i have 10,000 fake ones ... i plan to make a skinny runner to glue to petals to on each side of the aisle so that way the two pieces can just be thrown down and picked up ... no mess to try to clean up picking up millions of petals
