Oh my gosh! 15 days to go! Just 15 days to go until our March 15th vow renewal! I am sooo excited but was a little stressed because up until Wednesday we didn't have an officiant or bartender because the ones we booked or tried to book fell through. I can do a happy dance now and breathe a sigh of relief now that all our vendors booked!
I still have DIY projects to finish, for example, my brooch bouquet I have not even started on yet but my mommy will be here in two days andI know she will help me get everything done on time. She is super woman.
So, I am just trying to keep calm and enjoy every step of the journey. I am so excited!!
I've been looking for the perfect pair of gold pumps for my vow renewal and I found these super cute, Glitter Gold Pumps online here at Payless.com! They are on sale for $19.99 but unfortunately sold out in my size and many other sizes. If are fortunate to wear a size 5, 5 ½, 6, 6½ and 12 then there is still time for you to purchase a pair online.
I came across these Peacock Feather Boutonnieres at Sol Bijou and found them to be so chic. They have colors that I adore and the little gold leaf makes them so adorable. As set of 6 for your groomsmen would be $96.00 if you purchase them through Sol Bijou's Etsy shop but if you are up for the challenge, try making them yourself.
It seems like only yesterday that you walked into my life and asked me to be your wife. Since then we‘ve shared so much together and laughed a lot along the way. I can truly say that you are my dearest friend and I love you with all that I am. I love you…oh, I do. I love your curly hair and your bright eyes. I love your lips and your beautiful smile. I love your skin and your voice. I love your laugh. I love your touch. I love the essence of who you are because it speaks to the essence of who I am.
You’re not perfect nor am I but it’s our flaws that make our love even more special. It’s easy to see that you were created for me and I, for you. You’ve shown me what true love really is and what it feels like to be irreplaceable. I see the love you have for me in your eyes. I feel it in the way you hold me. I hear it loud and clear when you have say goodbye knowing we will be apart for while. You do so much to keep our family comfortable and happy. I couldn’t have asked God for a better man…He gave his best when he sent you. I am so happy to be sharing my life with you and I promise you, my dear Richard, that no matter comes our way, I will love you until my dying day.
Happy Valentine's Day, sweetheart.
We are 47 days away from renewing our vows and we are thinking about our dessert buffet. We want to have it filled with Authentic Caribbean Pastries but that's a tall order when you live in TN. If we lived in Florida, New York or even Atlanta, chances are we could find a bakery that sells them but not around here. So, we've been looking at pastries in local supermarkets that have Caribbean flavors such as mango, guava, coconut, pineapple and were surprised to find quite a few at a local Publix but all their desserts looked sooo yummy!!
We've ordered our Dance Floor Decal from Ten23Designs and I can't wait to see it when it arrives. The design is the one you see above but ours will be Shimmer Gold in color. It was $30 and the ordering process was super easy.
We received our Satin Champagne Tablecloths and Napkins in the mail yesterday and they are beautiful. We looked into renting the 132" tablecloths we would need and buying them from CVLinens was much cheaper.
The Satin Champagne Tablecloths were $14.99 each but I am sure I will be able to sell them back for at least $10 after our March 15th. The Satin Champagne Napkins were 55¢ each since I ordered 100.
It's starting to come together. I am so excited! It will look beautiful with the decor come vow renewal day!!
