Engagement Pictures

We took engagement pictures last Wednesday at the beach.  It was pretty windy, so I'm a little worried that my hair will be out of control in all of the pictures.  We'll just have to see.  I should have them the beginning of next week, so maybe I'll share a few :)

Other big news.... I'm finally going to try on dresses on Tuesday.  I've been dreading it, and something finally hit me today and I got really excited.  I'll try to remember to bring a camera and get some preview pics.

Just wanted to give a little update, hopefully I'll have more in my next post.

Need some input

So I have been toying with making my own invitations.  Crazy, I know, but a way to potentially help my budget out a lot.  I went to Michael's today to look for some DIY invitation goodies and I stumbled upon these little pretties....

And they were a CRAZY good deal.  So what do you think?  Likey, no likey?  Are they cheesy?  I like them, I like what I was putting together a little more, but it would cost at least twice as much and take sooo much longer. So I need some input.  Tell me what you think!

This weekend John and I went and registered.  It was pretty overwhelming, we had to leave before we were done because both  John and I were exhausted.  We'll have to finish it up another time.

We have a DJ woot woot!  We haven't really started thinking about music yet.  John and I did have a conversation that went a little something like this:

Lauren: What do we want to use for our first dance?
John: I don't know.
Lauren: How about Endless Love.
John: Sure, as long as it's not the Glee version.

It was definitely a joke, but he SO knew where I was going with it. There will be Glee songs played at the reception, I have decided.  I have a section in a notebook where I'm writing down songs that I definitely want played as they come to me.  I'm also working on a do not play list haha.  I would love any input you have on music, any song suggestions?

Search for the perfect dress

I've been thinking A LOT about dresses lately.  A whole lot.  Which at first, I put it out of my mind because I told myself I wanted to lose weight first, but now it seems to be the next thing I must check off my list.  I've been looking at bridesmaids dresses and feel like I'm getting no where.  I'm pretty sure I need to find my dress to set the 'tone' I guess you could call it for the rest of the wedding. 

I'm a HUGE fan of Maggie Sottero wedding dresses.  Seriously, these dresses are beautitful!  I've also found several Casablanca dresses that strike my fancy. 

I really have no clue what style I'm going for, and I am trying to keep an open mind.  I don't want to not try on a dress because it isn't exactly what I've envisioned, mostly because I have no clue what I want and I want something that will look good on me.  Pretty sure I want strapless, but like I said, I'm not closing the door on anything just yet.  I'm always open for ideas or suggestions.  Any dresses out there that you think are fab and I would like?  I totally want to hear about it so I can get some ideas and start trying on some dresses!
