Invitation Station!

Welcome to Wedding Wednesdays where I talk all things about my Wedding!!

As many of you know, Stud Muffin is a graphic designer. So... He chose to design our invites himself. 
This was a PROCESS people! I highly suggest... BUYING your invites. We almost got a divorce (before we were married!) in the paper store. However, I love the final product and we saved a TON of money!

Things that I loved about this process!
The invites were a one of a kind.
We saved a good chunk of cash. 
With so much of our wedding in the hands of a planner in FL, this was a way to feel more involved.
While at the time it seemed tedious, the "arts & crafts" were fun together.

Things I hated about this process!
Stud Muffin's 400 trips to the paper store and constantly changing mind.
My wedding colors had to change based on Stud Muffin's design preference.  
Who knew it would take a week (seriously!) to cut and paste and stamp everything!

All in all, I think our invites turned out quite nicely. I loved being involved even if it did feel like it took forever. 
The hassle was worth it but I wouldn't do it again!

Dress Fittings!!!

Wedding Wednesdays are BACK!
And don't you worry, although there are only about 7 more weeks until the big day, I will only take a honeymoon break and then continue with Wedding Wednesdays to catch everyone up! 

Way back sometime in March, my God-Mother and what I call my God-Sister, aka a long time BFF, came to NYC for my first dress fitting! It was a blast! Here are some of the highlights...

1- If you know my story about my big melons, then the fact that I was told to purchase a push-up bra for the dress is hysterical! 
2- I am wearing my mothers veil at my wedding. We had no idea if it would work with the dress. Not only does it work... it has the same lace pattern! 
3- I'm not shy, we took TONS of pictures. Here is the only one you get to see til after the big day!

Catch you next Wednesday friends!
