It's been awhile since I've been on here so I must update you guys withe verything. J's father has had lung cancer for a few years now and we were told he would not be able to attend the wedding. Well then the doctors came back and said he would be able to attend the wedding. He came to the wedding, we had a wonderful time, and we stopped by to see him Sunday and then J and I went on our honeymoon at Jekkyl Island. We got a call that Friday of our honeymoon to call his mother when we got home. When we got home that Saturday, they told us he wasn't doing well. Then we got the call Sunday morning he was gone. A WEEK after our wedding day. We immediately had to go to Texas to be with his mother, and My heart just went out to them. Js father was very special to me so it saddened me to know that he was gone. Just wanted to give you guys an update. He will truly be missed but I'm so thankful he got to be there on our wedding day. He wanted to be there so badly and he was. He was just tired. I know he is up in heaven having a ball now :) We just miss him down here...

Ask a Question
What Shoes? What Color?
Hey guys! I'm trying to figure out what flower girl shoes I should go with? Should I go with a flat or more like a dress shoe for the girls? Also, as many of you know, my wedding colors are wine and orange. I have 2 flower girls and a broom carrier 1 with a wine sash, 1 with an orange sash, and the other little girl is completely in Ivory. So my question is, should I dye their shoes? Should I put one in wine flats, one in orange, flats, and the last in Ivory? Or should I keep them all in Ivory? Just wanted to get your guys opinion!! Thanks so much!
Sooo.. the dress that I fell in love with for my hostesses I couldn't order because it would have been 12 weeks and there wasn't enough time.. I was so aggitated.. and upset.... because I was getting the same story from everyone... My fiance would always say to think of another solution.. Don't give up...
Taking his advice I looked and I looked and I was getting the same information.. Couldn't find the orange I wanted.... Just aggrivated..... So I went to David's Bridal again and the Orange WORKED! I was so excited ! Now you can see the colors! My orange is a lil different than I expected but it worked!!!
What do you guys think??!?!?
