Wedding Pics (non-professional)
Here are some of the pics from my wedding day! I am still waiting for the professional ones, I will post them later! (they are in random order)
We exchanged our gifts early
He asked me a long time ago what do I want to get for a gift, and I told him something with my new name on it. And this is what he came up with, I LOVE it!
I have never had high tops, but I love them. It is so cute how he coordinated our wedding colors into them! I was thinking about wearing them for when he takes off my garter, that would get some great photos!
Wedding Rings And Jewelry
our wedding rings are in
We finally picked out our wedding rings. My FH picked out the diamond for me originally and put it in a temporary setting and told me to pick out the wedding set I want. That was kind of stressful at first because I didn't know what to choose. It's hard to tell what ring you want when there isn't a diamond in the center. But I choose this one and I love it. He tried his on and he also loves it too. YaY! I choose this setting mainly because it has a nice detachable band, because being a nurse I am more likely to lose the diamond.
Wedding Hair Style
hair and make up trial
It wasn't perfect, but I love my hair color and the idea of the hair. My hairdresser and I decided that my hair would look better if it was bigger, not so flat and tight. With my make up we will be using fake eyelashes and using brown tones in my eyes instead of black/grey to bring out the green in my eyes. What do you think?

Save The Dates
I love the way these turned out! Sorry it's not the best pic but you get the point. They are all ready to go and I am mailing them tomorrow morning! They are magnets so it will be perfect for a daily reminder of our wedding day! YaY
This is my grandmothers necklace and my FH grandmothers broach. I am wearing the broach with my wedding dress (as you may see in the pics from earlier post), and I would love to wear my grandmothers necklace also, but I can't find any earrings to go with it. I don't want anything big. Something like a dropped earring with a large pearl and some diamonds to accent it, but I can't find anything... PLEASE HELP!!!
The main pic is of the necklace, I wore it to a wedding! I am going to stop wearing it now so no one recognize it at my wedding.
So do you think this will go with my dress? (pics of my dress on previous post)
One of my bridesmaids is allergic to all earrings except 14K gold, so I had her try on this set I found and it really didn't bother her ears. I told her that I don't care if she doesn't wear them all night, as long as she has them on for the pics that is cool with me. Well I ordered the jewelry from avon, and got it for $6 a set! But when I got them in I thought it looked like a really dark green, which I wanted a lighter green. So I had Tarah my bridesmaid come try it on with her dress to see if it looks good together. I wanted something green for the girls because my colors are pink and green. When it was actually on her with the dress I thought it looked really nice. And it doesn't look so dark on her skin like it does in the box. Overall I liked it and I am going to keep them. I still can't believe I got it for $6 a set, saves me money there!
So does it look good to you?
picked the flower girl dress
I finally picked out my flower girl dress! She is the Maid Of Honors daughter. She is going to be 6 years old at the wedding. This dress is sort of similar to mine because it is embroidered on the top of the dress and the bottom of the dress. And then I am putting a pink "watermelon" bow (its red in the pic) on it for her to also match the bridesmaids. She is so cute, and she loved the dress too! She wouldn't take it off until we left. This dress is also from davids bridal.
