The first thing I purchased today was a brooch/clip for my birdcage veil to make it pop a little bit more, so many to choose from...
... they cost much more than I thought but in the end I had to go for the piece that was going to work out the best (I did manage to get a $10 discount). Since I'm now for my big curls and will probably be wearing my hair like that for my wedding, I needed something that wasn't going to look bland as was as bold as my personality...and hair (lol). I ended up settling on this piece:
(sidebar: I know you think my chipped black nail polish is uber classy...I apoligize for you witnessing that) I wasn't 100% sure on it, so I tried it on with my veil and it seems to be ok. Crisis averted! I also stopped by my florist and completly paid off my balance (thank you Jesus). Originally I'd paid in full when my fiance was here, but we decided that we needed them to do the Sweetheart Table as well so we threw that in.
At some point we ended up in Walmart and we made our way over to the wedding aisle. There I picked up
- the flower girl baskets (3 of them)
- the guest book and pen
- the Unity candles
- ring bearer pillows
...and some other stuff that I can't remember right now...by the way, if you or someone you know is on a tight budget for invitations, Walmart has tons of really pretty ones for just under $20:
...there are so many to choose from and they're really nice looking. But here was my favorite aisle:
...my candy bar may be scrapped from the wedding. Towards the end of the planning process you kind of realize what's really important to you...and I don't think this is so important to me...plus I'm broke...so that's pretty much the deciding factor as far as that goes...lol...
How do you feel about garter removals at weddings?
Are you doing it?
