Purples and Greens..Oh My!

Finally, I think I have made the decision! I realized that if I only have just black, green and is very limiting! So my new accent color is purple! The only issue with purple, is getting it passed by the fiance!

Mr. & Mrs. Macartney

On October 17th, 2009 my big brother got married! The wedding was held at Dove Canyon Country club which was beautiful. Mountain views, sunsents, lakes! All of the wonderful planning that Marina did came together beautifully. It was so great to see their love shine during the ceremony, first dance, and throughout the wedding!

Ivory, Green & Black!

As of today I am liking these colors! The pallett is really elegant, but I am not sure how black is going to be in the middle of summer! I guess anything works at night.

Today my lovely mother and I went wedding dress shopping. I wanted to go to David's Bridal, because they have such a wide price range. I had planned to try on dresses from $299-499, with the exception of one that I just loved, which was a little OUT of the price range I was hoping for (well a lot out of the price range)! Of course none of the dresses were doin' it for I decided to try on "the one" and of course when it was on it felt like it was "the one". It is a little frustrating that the more expensive, the better they look. Since I am the budget queen...I am searching high and low for this dress online.
I also went to the paper source to look at invitation ideas etc., since I had my camera, I thought why not get a picture of this beautiful inviation inspiration board...until I was yelled at to put the camera away...OOPS! I will post that picture soon...

Since being engaged I have saved many inspirational photos from various blogs. I put together my first inspiration board, with some of those photos I've saved. I found the parasol umbrellas here, Now since I have my venue, I think it is time to choose a color combination!!

Pom Poms!

I was so excited when I found the tutorial to make these pom poms! Leave it to Martha...her website has step-by-step instructions! When I saw them, I knew I wanted to make them for Marina's bridal shower!
I wonder how I can incorporate these beauties into my wedding!
I can't wait to have my wedding date finalized! I want to start getting to the good and fun stuff to plan! I am thinking GREEN! It is interesting...before I got engaged I always picture my wedding to be black, green and cream. But now I realize how many options I have...and love so many of them!Black & Lilac is so beautiful too! When I went back eat to visit my relatives, they threw me an engagement party with this color scheme...LOVE IT!

We (Mom, Sis & I) were so honored to be able to throw our future SIL and DIL bridal shower! We planned for weeks to make sure each detail was perfect, and we were so excited for sprinkles cupcakes!

Waiting to hear...from casa Romantica.

We finally decided/agreed upon July 9th, 2010! Of course once the decision was made, I wanted a response from the wedding coordinator asap, but no! There are already two weddings that weekend, and then normally do not allow 3 in a weekend. We are awaiting "approval" from the board! I can't wait to I can start planning!!
