I'm having a really hard time picking out flowers.  I've never been a big flower person, don't get me wrong I think they are beautiful I just don't know a whole lot about them.  I stumbled across a website (click here) and I'm pretty sure I've found what I want!  Of course I'm not 100% sure, but I'm really liking these.

This first picture would be my bouquet. It has green dutch hydrangea paired with purple lisianthus, vendela and escimo roses, and green button mums, with ivory double faced satin ribbon and embellished with a brooch accented with pearls.  No purple though, it's not in my vision haha.  And I'm not sure what ribbon I would use to wrap, but I really like this one!
This would be the bridesmaids' bouquet. It has ivory hydrangea, green button mums, green hypericum berries, and vendela and escimo roses hand tied with mossy green double faced satin latticed with ivory satin and embellished with pearl headed pins. 

What do you think?

The dress!

I found my wedding dress this weekend! I went and tried some on last week and nothing really wowed me.  I saw bits and pieces of dresses that I really liked but nothing that I just loved.  Last Saturday, my mom and grandmother joined me and went dress shopping.  I had about six dresses picked out and in my dressing room to try on.  Adrian (my consultant who was flipping awesome) told me to pick the dress I think I would like the best to try on first.  So I grabbed the dress that I thought was gorgeous, put it on, looked in the mirror and immediately knew it was my dress.  I didn't want to try on any other dresses because I knew that was the one. But I put one more on that was by the same designer.  It was in my size (my dress was a size too big) and in a different color.  I decided I didn't want white, so the color I got is called alabaster and I love it!  I have pictures if anyone wants to see them, leave me your email and I'll send them to you.  I don't want to post it on the blog just in case John decides to try and sneak a peek.  I'm so excited to have the absolutely perfect wedding dress for me! 

I should have engagement pictures this evening, I'm hoping that they are good and I'll want to share them haha.  Keep your fingers crossed :)
