So, since I will have to ship and have people store things for me, I'm trying to figure out now what to put into a day of wedding kit for myself so I can make sure it's up in Seattle before I leave.  Problem is, what do I put in it?

Mia Mariu Review

Makeup on your wedding day is very important!  The last thing you want is to be wearing your normal makeup that smears and fades.  I wanted to use some of that new type of liner I've heard about giving a slight smoky look.  I believe it's called shadow liner?  I want to have a classic look on my wedding day.  One that my kids will be able to look at and not think, wow check out that crazy color of shadow on your eyes, or antannea shaped hairstyle.  So, I needed to find and learn to use shadow liner.

Suzy Q's Vintage Shop Cake Plate Review and Giveaway!

 There are so many details to planning a wedding. The cake is a huge endeavor from flavor, to look, to size, to cake stands, the details just never end and can really effect the look of your wedding.  I plan on doing a smaller round cake and then individual cupcakes.  So, I needed a stand that looks vintage, classic, elegant, and is size appropriate.  I found one at Suzy Q's Vintage Shop!

Bridal Bath Review

Sometimes the mom and the bride in me have the same needs!  Sometimes we just need/want a nice long soothing bath!  That means a nice smelling bath gel to help ease the stress of planning two weddings once with a short timeline and one with a long timeline, either way it'd double the stress.  How fun would it be if there was a Bride bath gel?

Which Dress fits!?

Last week I went to a dress shop in Gilbert, AZ and tried on different styles.  I'm trying to see which shape looks best on my body so I know better what to get when I look online at dresses to buy.  The attendant Felicia was very helpful in offering opinions and such regarding my shape and what did or didn't look good which is nice when you have no idea what you are doing.  So, now I need your minds and thoughts to decide. Which type of dress looks best on me?  Comment with your choice! Remember these aren't the dresses I'll get just the one's representing different styles.  Thanks for your help!

Hart Woodcrafts Review and Giveaway!

Have you decided what to get the FOB, or Father of the Bride, on your wedding day?  I had a tough time with this one as well!  Chances are they have enough money to get themselves whatever they want and I didn't want to go the old traditional route of golf club head covers or something.  Still, I wanted it to be special.  I looked and looked until I found an amazing idea.  Why not get a hand crafted professional pen?!  This way as they sign the checks to pay for the wedding it can be done in style!  Plus, if they work in an office it will make a great pen for contract signatures!  I looked around until I found Dan Hart of Hart Woodcrafts to have my pen made and he kindly offered to do a giveaway of a pen to one lucky bride!

Rose Bud Lips Bridal Handmade Garter Review

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, ugh!  So, many superstitions how do I cover them all?  I think I found a way to cover 3 out of these 4 in one little package!  Instead of getting a boring garter, I found Rose Bud Lips Store of handmade items!  Her handmade garters looked amazing so, I ordered one for my wedding!  This way I have the Blue covered with the light blue hand made flower.  The old covered with the antique materials used to make the garter.  The new is covered by the fact that the garter is new to me!  Perfect!  Plus, it looks adorable!

Do you really use all the stuff you get from your registry?

I thought I would have some fun and start a registry for the weddings.  I figured it would be fun to pretend that I was re-doing everything, plus one less thing on the list.  I didn't know where to start so I started looking up list guides.  Now, I know less of where to start and can't help but wonder, "Do you really use all the things you get off your registry?  What should I not even bother putting on and what is your one, I didn't know I couldn't live without item?
