Just saw this on 100 Layer Cake, a DIY wedding site. (Frances, check it out.) If only I had 3-4 weeks to order one of these needlework hoops, it would be the perfect ring pillow. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29232405

I have been watching ebay like a hawk for the last few weeks to collect enough blue mason jars for my flowers, but I also have dabbled a bit in my search for wedding shoes. I have decided on a pair of bright puprle Frye sandals with a wood heel for the reception and a pair of kick-ass Lucchese cowboy boots for my walk down the aisle.

My dress has gotten bigger on me. Good thing I waited to have it altered. The dress is now at least a full size if not two sizes too big. I dropped it off yesterday to get altered and left a very nervous bride. I am trying to think positive and hope that it's going to be alright. If it isn't I will still have two weeks before the wedding to buy something else off the rack or via Once Wed.
My two big worries at the moment are the food and the dress. I have more control over the dress, I think.
I hate that word, control.
PS-I am not actually wearing a veil. This was just a dress rehearsal to see how I think the dress looks on me. My mom threw together that bouquet from some store-bought flowers. She has talent.
