Wedding Wednesday Best Wishes & Dress Update

I started another wedding project last night. This one was really simple and it didn't take long at all. I stamped all of our "Best Wishes" cards. In lieu of a guestbook, we are going to have our guests fill out these cards. I have to buy a frame and print out a little saying describing what it is all about. I also need to find or make a pretty box to put all of the cards in.

Help me decide which caption to use inside the frame! Should I keep it short and simple with: "Please leave your wishes for the Mr. & Mrs" or should I use this catchy rhyme: "Instead of a guestbook stuck in a drawer, Michael and Danielle thought they would do more. Please write them a note, a wish, or a greeting. For later on, it will make for good reading! Or if you prefer, some advice would be nice, on how to stay married and keep the spice.

This is what my dining room table currently looks like:

***Dress Update***
My last wedding related post was about the second thoughts that I was having about my dress. Well, I made the best decision ever. Before impulsively running to NYC to buy a new dress, I got a second opinion from another seamstress. Just to give you an idea of how amazing my new seamstress is- she actually had the opportunity to work for Betsey Johnson (who I adore)! She is going to work her magic on my dress and she assured me that she could make it look the way I was hoping it would when I first said yes to the dress. As if that isn't exciting enough, I am also going to add some details to make the dress more me. I fell in love with the details on this Pronovias Estepona dress and I am going to incorporate them into my dress.
I'll be adding bows, like these down the back of my dress.
Anyone who knows me knows my love of bows, so it only makes sense.

I'm also adding some ruffled trim along the sweetheart neckline
that will follow through to the top portion of the back of the dress.

I'm so excited and I can't wait to see the finished product. I have to have patience though because I can't start my fittings too soon. Because of the shape of the dress, she advised me to start alterations 1-2 months before the wedding so the fit is perfect.


  1. I really LOVE your dress. Lucky for finding an awesome seamstress. Can't wait to see how beautiful the dress will turn out.

  2. I'm happy you have found a solution to wearing your perfect dress.
    And you are so crafty .. its inspiring for my own wedding!

  3. Yayy! I am so glad to hear everything is coming together! I knew it would, though. You are going to be a gorgeous bride. I think the second caption for the best wishes card is really cute, by the way!

  4. Ohhh that's exciting, can't wait to see what it looks like! :) And thanks for the comment :)
