I have a million things I could post about because we've done SO much in the past few days, but my brain is completely fried.
Today at lunch, I ran to Anthropologie to see if I could find a new dress for the rehearsal dinner. I had bought a dress from J.Crew final sale way back in March and I started having 2nd thoughts about it. It was slightly tight, not comfortable and it was silk (which I was worried about since it's more than likely going to be hot and I tend to sweat - gross I know!)
Well I was HIGHLY successful at Anthro and walked out with this beauty:The picture doesn't really do the dress justice - it fits amazingly and it's a very light weight linen and it's super flattering. Plus, the striped grosgrain ribbon belt pretty much sold me! I like that it's partially white and also incorporates one of our wedding colors! Plus it was on sale for $61! So I feel much better that I don't have to deal with dress stress anymore.
Other than that, our to-do list is dwindling down to almost nothing -- we finished all the pillows, place cards are 95% done, bathroom baskets are made, cocktail napkins and koozies are here and put into their baskets, the props for our photobooth are organized and I've picked
up my dress from the alterations lady (it's currently in my closet with the door locked to keep Jake away from it)
I did have my hair trial last week and it came out FABULOUSLY!!
Please ignore the nasty roots, those will be gone next week at my last hair appointment. This shows a good view of the antique brooch I'm wearing my hair, which was my grandmothers (and it's my something old)
Another view from that side - isn't it lovely that my crazy dog is peeing in the background - love you Spencer!
From the other side...I love how she curled and twisted the hair and how it all comes back very soft and loose, but it's definitely very secure with about a million bobby pins. It looks like I have SO much hair (and I really don't!)
Not sure how much I'll be posting/commenting in the next week, but I'll try to keep up with the last minute updates!!
