My wedding dress arrived.
I tried it on, and I love it as much as I did when I bought it. This is a MAJOR accomplishment for a girl who changes her mind more often than her socks.
The bridesmaid dresses are in too! They definitely need some altering, and the fabric threw me off. Mind you, we bought online, so what was I to expect? I gave the bridesmaids full creative freedom with them; I want them to alter them whatever way they want to make them their own. Consistency is over-rated!
Planning a wedding in a different province than the ceremony/fiance is proving to be slightly more difficult than I had expected. Honestly, I don't know what I'd do without all of you. Everyone who's been so willing to give a hand. Every time someone loans me something, or finds me something at a yard sale, my heart swells and I'm yet again amazed at the power of community.
Anyways, dab your eyes, we're moving on from the sappiness.
My aunt Linda has agreed to bake our wedding cake! She's the best baker I know. She's so passionate about it. I love everything she makes and I love her. I'm very happy that we didn't have to get an actual company to make the cake, it's so much more special this way. We're going with the simple cake, no tiers, no fondant. Just yummy.
Cakes are over-rated!
Lace has started taking over my room. Though I'm unsuccessful in finding round lace tablecloths (much to my dismay), I seem plenty capable of finding lace material, so I'm buying it as I find it. Right now, I have yards of it hanging over a guitar case. Between disposable cameras and lace, my room is full-up!
We're getting married in less than 8 months. Excuse me, I have to go change my pants now.

It's in. It's sitting at Winchester's bridal in Halifax RIGHT NOW.

This is torture. I want to go pick it up ASAP, but I'm in Fredericton without a car! I'm going to see if someone can pick it up for me.

Until then, I must be patient.

I walked by a bridal boutique that's moving to a new location and everything was 50% off in the store. So guess what? I bought 23 disposable cameras for the tables at the reception! They cost a little over 2 bucks each, not too shabby. I also bought a huge oversized vintage inspired feather pen, but I'm not sure if I like it enough to even use it yet. The feather has a weird gap in it that I don't know if we can fix. If not, I've got a huge novelty pen to write exams with that cost me 3 dollars. I'm alright with that.
