Archives for the month of: May, 2012

Just got home from Michaels. I think I got carried away at the store.  I’m promising myself to scrapbook recent events soon after it has happened. I have so much memorabilia from 2 year ago that I have to include in our Adventure Book.  So my mission these next few weeks: our Honeymoon scrapbook!

Wish me luck!


I love old school cars.  I want to own one someday. *sigh*

I knew this would be a must have for our wedding.  One of my husband’s tasks was to find us one.  And I fell in love with this 1937 Packard!

Etsy has a wedding registry now! How cool is that?!  Anyway, before that came into play, I ordered a few things for our wedding from these awesome vendors:

Details, details, details. ❤

I have to admit, I fell in love with my dress as soon as I saw it… in a magazine.

In my eyes, I knew this would be it and nothing can top this dress.  As I mentioned in my very first post, I grabbed monthly bridal magazines on the stands and subscribed to Brides and Martha Stewart Wedding.

I called every bridal store in San Diego. No luck. So I called up North and visited Mary Me Bridal in the City of Orange.  It was the first dress I tried on and I was right.. it was MY dress! I should have tried the other dresses I brought into the dressing room so that I can pretend I was on the show “Say Yes to the Dress.” haha!

Without further ado, my dress:

Details: Ivory / Satin Faced Organza & Lux Organza / Chapel train length

Alterations: Removed straps, made into a sweetheart top, shortened length. [Thanks to 2000 Dreams Bridal]

What attracted me to the dress: Feather details, the cut and drop of the back of the dress, and the giant bow.

I felt so pretty wearing this!
