Hair Ideas

I've had a set image in my head of how I want my hair to be for the day of the wedding.

Hasn't changed a bit.  Haven't budged.

Half up.  Big barrel loose curls (not prom style and over-hairsprayed).

With a chunky vintage clip where the hair comes together.  And possibly a birdcage veil.

Any brides have any experience with down hair-dos?  Is having your hair down a recipe for flat, limp hair by the end of the night?  (And bad pictures to boot?)

(Abby, I know you're reading this...)


Bridesmaids Dress Options

J.Crew has the absolute best bridesmaid dresses.  I think the girls will love how they fit - and the styles to choose from.

Call me crazy, but I think they'll be able to wear them again!  Cute little cardigan?  Belt around the waist?  Work with me here, people.

I keep having bad dreams about the wedding.

Not about the amazing man I'm marrying of course.  Bad dreams about the details.

Such as:
1. I hate my dress.  (Seriously, impossible.)
2. I forgot to send out invitations and realize this small little mistake the day of the wedding.
3. I forgot to buy a a veil and/or a hair clip.  Serious bad hair day.  This cannot happen on the day of the wedding.

So today is the day to be proactive on my bad dreams
1. Dress: There is no way I could hate my dress.  Moving on. {Final dress fitting May 1!}
2. Invitations: Emailing local print shop to discuss a few design ideas today.
----> Which reminds me, did I mention Val designed fabulous Save the Dates?  Getting those printed and in the mail next week!
----> Did I also mention Mom is designing an uber-cute map to be sent with the invitations?  {See here}
3. Hair clip: Need to buy one from etsy this week.  I want it to be chunky and vintage.  Like below.

Lindsay + Jordan

Came across this while searching for "nursery" in my personal photos.

Just sayin'!

The Bride had a gorgeous mix of color. The bridesmaids all had different (solid) bouquets ...

Photo Booth

Love the idea of the signs and pendents in the back.

If not at the wedding reception, what about after the rehersal dinner (after everyone has had plenty of wine!?) :)

Dessert Table

Neither Jordan or I are big cake people (unless it's Dairy Queen ice cream cake - Jordan's weakness!).  So we're forgoing the wedding cake and having a dessert table with a variety of some of our favorite sweets displayed on pretty plates, cake stands, and platters.

Like these.  {Via Splat Cooking and Rose & Grey}

With sweet and tangy lemon bars.

. . . Or key lime bars?

And cheesecake pops!

Chewy, melt-in-your-mouth brownies.

And of course . . . cupcakes. 

And finally - tacky as it may seem - the groom's cake may have to be picked up from Dairy Queen the weekend of the wedding!

A Shower.

I saw this picture and all I could think about was your wedding shower.
