Doing Some Good
with my bridal party.
Ask a Question
my FH tells me "i love you just how you are" but I still want to look good for the the big day.
so tell me... what are you brides doing for bridal bootcamp?!
Its booked and paid for!!
We're renting a exclusive cabin in the Adirondacks!!! It's not a campsite cabin where tons of screaming little kids will be up early and running around... it's going to a romantic week, alone, together, in the mountians. We're leaving the cellphones off, and just completely getting lost in each other's presence and I cannot wait. It'll be a nice break from the busy, loud, and fast paced world we're use to.
We leave Sunday morning after the wedding, and check in when we get up there that afternoon. I am sooooo excited. so tell me what do you think?? cute idea?? kinda romantic right?!?!

Personalized && Gorgeous!!
They finally arrived!! I love them. No lie - a tear ran down my face.
They match the pink that I am using in my wedding to a tee. Our names are on the tapered candles, and our married names, our date, and a quote are on the center candle. I am in love with it.
The lady who makes them is Mary Forbare, and just she owns Candles-And-Cookies. Google it she ships everywhere!!!
I cannot wait to walk down it... 25 more weeks!! uh oh!! Its sneaking up on me!!
My Dress For The Big Day!!!!!
so right after i posted my last post about my garment bag, i realized i still haven't posted any pics of my dress. Its made by Christina Wu, and is the dress of my dreams. Its covered in beads, pearls, satin, and lace. I love how it fits, and mom broke down crying when she seen it on me. I cannot wait to wear it!! less than 6 months left!!!
Lemme know what you think!!
PINK GARMENT BAG! OMG, YES!!!
I saw it and had to own it... the kicker.. I got it off ebay for $8 including shipping.
I was nervous that it was going to be cheaply made, but no sir. Its better than the one my gown came in!!!
Finally bought my shoes!
I live in heels, I perfer them over sneakers so the 3 inch heel shouldn't be a problem for the march down the aisle!! I am so excited I cannot wait to wear them!! Open toe means fresh pedicure for the wedding! :)
Another step closer to the big day!! 179 more to go. uh oh!!
What do you think??
Ask a Question
Anyways, I'm having a really hard time getting the cake places to make a cake without egg, and the one who said they woud - use gelatin, which is made from animal products. Their reasons all lead back to the fact that egg makes the cake stiffer so when you layer it, or put decorations on it, it doesnt sink. la-te-da. I still need a cake!
AND I KNOW VEGANS EAT SOME KIND OF CAKE!!!
Anyways a family friend who is very good at making cakes said she would make a trial cake if I found a vegan cake recipe that is stiff enough to support layers.
Any good recipes?? I really need your help!!
