Future Mrs. Roberts!

I got my super cool "Future Mrs. Roberts" hoodie in the mail this week! I feel so cool! haha! I highly recommend the place where I ordered this. I looked at a million different websites trying to find one of these for a good price that was exactly what I wanted and I finally found it at! Of course now its hot outside so I probably won't need to wear it for a while, but at least I have some time! 
Don't worry bridesmaids, I won't make you wear personalized bridesmaid hoodies to coordinate with me! haha! I know you probably expect something like that for me, but I will try to contain myself! I'm all about personalization though! I feel sorry for my future children...

I'm changing my colors!

Well, I have decided that my original thoughts on wedding colors are just not going to work.
1. I can't find a single dress that I love that is in the exact turq color I want.
2. I was having a really hard time tying together the vintage theme of my wedding with colors that are so bright. As much as I love those colors, they just weren't giving me the feel I was going for.
So, I have now decided that I am going to do a dusty rose color with champagne accents. Its much more subtle than the ones I had chosen before, but I think its going to tie in very well with the whole ambiance I want at my wedding. My bridesmaids may not be too excited about it (sorry girls!), but I think its the right thing for me!

My wedding shoes!

Yay, they arrived yesterday! My beautiful Christian Louboutin wedding shoes! I will probably never have another pair of Loubi's so I have to enjoy them! So I was very excited when they came in, but they are actually too small! Damn European sizing! So I had to send them back today and order the next size up. But still, I'm so excited I found some that I love. I had to cram one of my feet into the shoes so I could see what they look like and they are amazing! I'm going to have to display them in a shadow box when I'm done with them. ha! I know that sounds crazy, but how often am I really going to be able to wear ivory satin shoes? Anyway, I think they will be the perfect height for my dress and it shouldn't have to be hemmed. I can't wait until I get my dress so I can see the two together! Wedding planning is so much fun!

I bought my wedding dress!

So its actually been a few weeks since I bought my wedding dress, but I have been MIA lately so I have to talk about it now. Its such an important part of this process!!
Well, after going dress shopping with a few of my bridesmaids, I was talking to my mom about the dress I really liked and she was like "if you really like it just go ahead and buy it!" But, I wasn't ready yet! I had only been to 2 places and as much as I liked the dress I found at one salon, I still wanted to try on others to be sure. The only catch was that this particular gown was a trunk show gown that was only going to be there for the weekend, plus if you bought it during the trunk show you got 10% off! That's a lot when it comes to wedding gowns! So, I went to one other bridal salon the next day, hated everything in the store, and decided to go back and try the gown on one more time to see what I thought before it got shipped out. As soon as the sales woman brought it out for me to try on and I saw it, I knew it was "the one!" I know that sounds cheesy, but its totally true. I put it on and didn't want to take it off. So, that's it! Take a look at my wedding dress. The only difference with this picture is that the girl has on a shrug and my dress will actually be strapless. I love it!
