Soul Search

I have lots of shoes. I love to buy them, so much more comforting than buying clothes. Even with all my experience in the footwear department, I am having a hard time deciding what would be best to wear with my gown. I found this pair of shoes online last fall and knew they would be perfect, but wasn't any where near thinking about buying things for a wedding. Needless to say, they are gone. I have seen countless brides trying to find them for their own weddings... no luck for anyone.


So I have had to expand my search. I'm looking for preferably satin heels in an apple green or deep purple. Here's what I've got so far:

"Grape" satin peep toes by Nina, I love them!

But there are also these. They're the same grape color, slightly different style. I really like these.


And these: They're not satin, but they are way cute!


Finally, these satin peeptoes from Nordstrom, these have a little bit more embellishment to them which makes them super fun.


So this is where I need your help. What's your opinion? Which one strikes your fancy?

Majestic Purple

We, and by we I mean my mom and I, are working on some ideas we have for centerpieces. We hit up a fabulous sale (50% off) at the HobLob store and bought all kinds of goodies to create some masterpieces, hopefully. This is what we have got so far:

We got the lovely florals at HobLob:

Then, because the hobby store is overpriced when it come to vases, we went perusing Ross and found these great purple vases for nearly 1/3 of the price:

So, here is the finished product... kinda:

What do you all think? I need some opinions. Is it too much purple? Is the green too dark?

Joining the Masses

I have fallen... hard. I am completely obsessed with wedding blogs and magazines that it is ridiculous. So... for the next 6 months (that's right there are only 6 months til the wedding) I'll be sporadically posting ideas I am considering, complete with pictures, of course, for your opinion. I NEED HELP! So comment and give me some advice.
