They are officially in the mail! I will get pictures up asap. Other than that I haven't really been doing much wedding wise.

The boy's parents decided to help us out with the casual get together, which is amazing. They're going to set the whole thing up with finger food, and we're going to provide refreshments. And because we're saving so much money by not having the fancy dinner the night before, we're going to have some guest bags for people to take home too! We're trying to come up with local brands from Wisconsin, but so far we can only think of a few, and most of those are all cheese companies, which won't do well outside of a fridge.... bummer. Stupid wisconsin and your damn cheese.

Next on the list is making programs, wreaths, and figuring out my hair and makeup.

My hair is not long enough to do an up do easily, but i want to show off the collar of my dress, so i'd like it off of my shoulders. I used to be really good at fixing my hair, but for some reason every time I try it now, it looks like crap. On top of everything I'm going to have to leave it curly because I just know that setting everything up before the ceremony will make it get frizzy and out of place if i straighten it.
I really like this one, but my hair just isn't long or full enough to do it.
This do is AMAZING, but I just can't figure out how to do it... I've tried several times.
This one I can do, but it ends up looking messier than I'd like.

I'll post some pictures of my "hair trials" when I can.


  1. Beautiful blog!! I like to see how you are exploring so many options!

    I found your blog thru your comment on The Farm. Boy, I'm glad you chimed in- a voice of reason. I've decided not to read those angry rages any more. I wondered where she got the "ghetto" stereotype from- then I think it was you who said she was stuck in the 1970's: perfecto!!

    Anyway- thanks. Good luck with your plans for your big day!!


  2. The first one is really lovely! I'm not sure her hair is that thick either. I'm pretty sure there's a sponge in the back. (Not sure sponge is the right word). If you used a sponge and got some temporary extensions, would that work? Because it's stunning!
