Basically what's been going on lately at the wedding-front has been a massive whirlwind of Etsy purchases. For those that don't know (and I'm not sure how you don't...) Etsy is the mecca motherland online marketplace of vintage, handmade and all things crafting supplies. Let me do a re-cap of what we've ordered from various Etsy sellers so far: my bridal headpiece, rubber stamps for the save-the-date cards, striped washi tape for the boutonnieres, feathers and other materials for the boutonnieres, supplies for the candy bar, pretty striped straws, the men's ties, place cards, and the cake topper! And I'm sure there will be many more orders to come. What did brides do before Etsy? What did brides to before the internet? Before Google? I can't imagine planning a wedding without it (the internet, that is). Imagine having to use a PHONE BOOK. I get chills just thinking about it.
I have my next dress fitting at the end of March which means that I have another month to stress about trying to lose a bit of weight in time. Justin and I have embarked on a nightly exercise regimen and are trying, TRYING to eat healthier. The day before my next fitting is our wedding shower, which I am so excited about! My matron-of-honor and future mother-in-law have been planning away at it, it's going to be a perfectly yummy dessert-fest. I'll also be going in for a trial hair and makeup run pretty soon. Why hasn't my hair grown out into beautiful long wavy locks yet? Am I going to have to get extensions? Extensions kind of make me laugh. Plus, they get sewn onto your head and that doesn't sound like anything I'm interested in having done to my scalp. Also, I don't like fake hair. Will I be wearing fake hair on my wedding day? Only time will tell.
