Miss Slackerton!


Dear readers,
As I was so graciously reminded the other day by my loveliest of girlfriends (Neysa belle!), it has been a long minute since I wrote a blog. Not that I haven't been trying--there are a bunch of pictures sitting on my computer desktop just waiting to be uploaded and then deleted. No excuses...although I have been busy working and studying and writing application essays. Not very much wedding planning happening at the moment (although Nikki finished the Save-the-dates and we'll be mailing them out really soon!). Brett is trying to book a caterer and I'm supposed to be working on a florist. We're still trying to narrow down the guest list but it's way hard. Brett also finished--or is almost finished--with our wedding website. Can't wait for everyone to see!

I've recently (finally!) taken up a fitness routine of some kind. Yoga, Tracy Anderson DVDs, and running. I need to be teeny-tiny-cute in my wedding dress. No kidding around. It's been a week, and I'm pretty sore. Good sore. I highly recommend Tracy Anderson's workout--for all you ladies out there, and I'm assuming most of you are, unless you're my fiance--she tones you without bulking so you keep your feminine shape and don't get weird Madonna arms or Britney thighs.

Another awesome find this week: Rent the Runway, where you can rent dresses from labels like Herve Leger and Alice + Olivia for $50-$300 (you keep it for four days). This will come in handy for the bachelorette party and rehearsal dinner.

Now on to the goods.

I am lucky enough to have booked Marlo for hair for myself and the bridesmaids as well as makeup, just for the bride (sorry girls!) and can't say enough good things about her! She is beautiful, calm, extremely capable, and does the best job! I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Here are some ideas I have for hair...

You're probably noticing a theme here. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about hair and I'm liking the headband. Everyone says you have to wear fresh flowers in your hair since it's in Hawaii, but I don't want to do what everyone else is doing! 

I already have my dream dress, but I still like looking. Much like having my dream man, no? (Just kidding, Brett) Aren't these frothy goodness?

This dress is a little too much, but I like her for her boldness.

SHOOOOOES! All of these are by Pour la Victoire--the first shoe is this last one with a feather pouf on it. I love the stylish creativity of that bride. This brand is magnifique!

Couldn't resist adding one more.

I love these flowers! They're so pretty and have a touch of "Oh these old things? I just went out and picked it from the field of wildflowers out yonder" whimsicalness. Gorg.

Happy and fun! That's what I want our day to look like, the embodiment of happy and fun...and be full of joy and love. Is that too much to ask?

I asked Brett if we could make an archway like this and he answered by asking if it's easier to just rent one from the rental company. 

This stamp came in the other day from Cupcake Tree on Etsy. I can't wait to use it on cocktail napkins, favors, the invitations, you name it, this will be on it. So in love.

I love bridesmaid shots! Love the different dresses in these--just like what we're doing! I'm so excited about having my girls around me the day-of! I wish I could have included three or four more, but six is already a lot!

Great family shot. Love grandpa and grandma sitting in the front.

This picture was shared by Christine, one of my favorite lady date partners--when she's not getting my fiance all boozed up.

LOOK at this picture. No, seriously, LOOK at it. This picture is beyond words--gorgeous, sweet, romantic, private. *Sigh* One of my new favorites.

Instead of rose petals, this is a pretty sweet exit, minus a lump of ribbon hitting you in the face.

I like the colors and composition of this picture. And how does it make you feel?

Love this! So fresh and unique!

This one's pretty cool too, but his chin hair (was going to write a different word there, but couldn't--this blog is too pretty) gotta go.

There's something so loving about the groom kissing the bride's hand. One of my favorite photos of my big sis and her hubs' wedding was where he was kissing her hand and do I even need to mention...
I thought not.

Thanks for being so patient with me this month. I have been Miss Slackerton, my apologies. This month you'll probably be getting your Save-the-Date in the mail (if you're lucky!) and we'll be getting our E-shoot pics back! I'll share them with you as soon as we do!

Have a lovely week ♥

  1. That stamp is everywhere. It's messed up that you stamped my lower back in my sleep...Friday AND Saturday night. Messed up.
