Feeling inspired...

Now this song is in no way new, but driving home today from the gym I heard Jason Mzra's "I'm Yours"... I just pictured a nice slow stroll down the aisle up to my love to this song...I dont know, what do you think?

Well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you're free
look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
listen to the music at the moment people dance and sing
Were just one big family
And it's our godforsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved
So, i won't hesitate no more,
no more, it cannot wait i'm sure
there's no need to complicate our time is short
this is our fate
I'm yours

Something blue

Another Ebay win! I introduce you to my "something blue" it's a Victoria's Secret baby blue satin garter w/ tags. I won it for $.99 and with shipping it was $4!
Not bad!

Crinoline has arrived!

I got my crinoline in and am super happy with it! Again it was from Ebay, for $20 and exactly what I ordered. Nice and fluffy, multi layered and will look so much better once it's green!
Cant wait!

Aye Veil!

Just paid for my veil! 1 tiered, 72in L x 108in W diamond white cathedral length veil with swarorski crystals for $21 total!

Seller is "cutebrides"on Ebay.

My today has been productive!

Get ready for a dye job!

Just paid for my crinoline! Bought it on Ebay from seller "favorpro" for $20 including shipping! Best part was the seller takes "best offer" meaning he was asking $20 I offered $10 and with shipping got it for $20 total...could have gotten if for cheaper than that had I tried harder, but ah well, moving on!

My next plan is to buy dye and make it match with my "wedding green" or black to coordinate with my wedding colors much like the image on the left, I just need to make sure it doesnt show thought my dress since it's organza.

I get so excited over project like these!! Taking the traditional and making it your own :) Love it!

So what have I been doing all Monday you ask? Searching the best site in the world! I'm currently watching a crinoline petticoat for $20 with shipping (which I plan to die), a garterbelt (my something blue) for $5 and a Garmin GPS (just becuase I'm always lost) for $85....I'm also giving my MOH some time before I give up on her and just buy my own ring pillow.

Oh! And my wedding dress came from there! Originally $1100 I got it for $700! And my cake toppers (3 individual monograms) for $30! (I'll post pictures later)

Air and Sea Show to Return in 2010!

The Air and Sea show is returning to Fort Lauderdale in April 2010 after a two-year hiatus. The popular show, once sponsored by McDonald's, will return bearing a new name: Air Lauderdale Beach Fest and will take place on April 24th and 25th. The annual beachfront display show will feature an assortment of military airplanes, fighter jets, bombers, helicopters, military choppers and stunt pilots brought to you at no expense to the taxpayer. Air Lauderdale, the event's promoter, has agreed to cover all of the show's expenses and post a $750,000 bond.

All that is so great for S. Floridians...only thing it that's my wedding day! Yup, while I'm trying to have an outdoor wedding there will be helicopters and military planes flying overhead... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! So now we need to hurry up and get hotels rooms and a backup plan...ugh!

Good morning all!

The Wedding March is so 1980s

Dancing down the aisle is the hot new wedding trend and I realllllyyyy think we'll be joining in on the trend!

Now to coordinate BMs that are spread all over the East Coast... GMs that have 2 left feet and the kids in our bridal party that I have no clue what their situation is! LOL We'll see but I'd really like to do this.
