Wedding Update

This past weekend we went dress shopping for the moms. Donna (Eric's mom) had gone looking at department stores and was not having any luck at all. So we decided to go shopping on Saturday while I was in town. We being my mom, Donna, Eric, and me. Yes you read that right Eric went with. He was actually a big help and told us his opinion. I'm so lucky to have a fiance who is involved in the wedding planning.

We decided to go to Terry Costa over off Preston and 635. It is a huge bridal store, and I figured this would be a great place to start. We weren't quite sure what color we wanted them in. I was thinking a shade of teal would be ok, but Eric didn't want that. He thought if they were in a shade of teal that didn't match, it would look bad. We did not want Black since we are not mourning the union of the two families. We decided silver was good. My mom fell in love with the 2nd dress she tried on. I loved it too! Donna took a little longer. She just wasn't liking anything she tried. Then she found a separate top with jacket and black skirt. The top and jacket are silver with a pattern. Very elegant! They were both so excited to have found their dresses.

Then we went to hobby lobby. OH MY! We went to the one off Preston and looked at vases for the centerpieces. Then we decided we can find them cheaper at a wholesale vase store in Addison. While we were at Hobby Lobby we bought the guest book, matching pen, and a matching pillow for Jordan. Then I remembered these really cute hat boxes I saw at the HL in Garland, that would be perfect for a card box. So I walked around the entire store and could not find them!

After lunch we decided to run to the vase store, they're closed on Saturdays. Then we went to the Hobby Lobby in Garland to look for the hat boxes. I found them after searching the entire store and stomping my feet haha. Eric was laughing at me. I was getting frustrated because I knew I saw them at Hobby Lobby, and I figured they're thinking I'm going crazy now.

After we dropped the moms off at their cars, Eric and I decided to go ahead and get the vases at HL. I looked on his iphone and the wholesale place had them for $12 a piece. HL was having a 50% off sale, so they were only $10 a piece. We bought the 2 at the HL in Garland, and then drove back to the one off Preston and got 4 more. I have 6 large vases to go on 6 of the tables to add some height at the reception.

I'm going to put these 47" tall branches in them below. They come in black, white, and gray 80-100 sticks per pack. I'm going to spray paint the gray ones silver and the white ones teal. I will put one pack per vase.

Then I'm going to put these curly sparkle ones throughout each vase to add a little texture and curly. They are 27" tall and 32 per pack. I was thinking about putting 5-6 per vase just to add a little something.

The vases cost me $60. The twigs above will cost me $30 (for 6 packs), and the curly ones will cost $9.

I'm so thankful that Eric put up with the wedding nonsense this weekend :) We also finished designing our invitations, rsvp card, hotel card, and map card. I love the design :)

    Over exercising your puppy before his bones is fully developed will only give him problems
