I’m fully aware that my blog has ended up being majority wedding related, but you guys….36 DAYS TO GO! Ahhh! Yes, I had to look it up on our wedding website just to be sure. So, as you can see from this blog title, I did, in fact, pick up THE dress today! My cousin Dee (who is also one of my bridesmaids) accompanied me, which worked out perfectly because I needed to have someone there to learn how to bustle the dress. My appointment was at 11am and we were out of there in less than half an hour. The kind man that helped us took the dress out and had me try it on and it fit like a glove. It felt so much better wearing it altered to me and my body. The length was perfect and the fit was perfect. It was a quick and easy transaction. The countdown continues. It’s getting SO real.
My bridal shower has been a week and half out, but I’m still dreaming about it. I wanted to make a separate post about the details of the shower because they were too cute and definitely deserved their own post. My sister and bridesmaids did such a great job with everything. I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome! Continue reading
WARNING: Long post
Its been almost a week since I celebrated my bridal shower and I miss it so much! It was on 09/16/17 in the cutest venue called Avenue in SF. When I came across this venue during my search, I knew it was the one. After my sister booked the venue, the planning began and I was banned from the whole process lol. She asked me what themes I had in mind and what kind of food I wanted to serve and that was it. It was a tough month or so of silence from my sister and my bridesmaids. When it comes to planning events, parties, gatherings and trips I’m usually the one that is most involved, so not being able to help or have a say in things was extremely difficult. On top of that, the thought of having a party for me is not something I’m used to. I’ve had only a few parties thrown for me my whole life, the last one being my cotillion, over 10 years ago! Otherwise, having something for me is not something I’m used to.
The bridal party, Raf, my mom and Raf’s mom headed to the venue around noon to set up. I had to wait around at home and was not able to leave until 1:15ish. Not to mention, I woke up around 7am that morning of pure excitement! My brother dropped me off and I arrived at around 1:30pm. As soon as I walked in, I was in awe. I could not believe what I was seeing. The decor, the set up, the photobooth (I’ll get to that later)…everything looked amazing! I was blown away. Continue reading
