These little cards bring on the creativity! Everyone can write you a sweet little message and drop it in a decorative box. You can mount these in a book later to display them. I'm sure you will get some heartfelt thoughts and wishes mixed with some silly ones. I think it would be a lot of fun to read what people have written and I can't wait to try it out!

We went to the Juicy outlet but I didn't really see anything that I was crazy about. There was a black Daydreamer bag with a key charm on it that I really liked but I didn't want to buy it now and save it for next fall/winter. I might go back for it but I'm glad I held off because I found something else that I love....
...last but certainly not least my early birthday present from my mom!
My mom and my grandma got Coach bags for themsleves as well. They we handing out 20% off coupons at the door so we couldn't pass up the opportunity. I can't believe I chose Coach over Juicy!
Upon check-in, each bride was given a list of all of the vendors present. We had to visit each vendor and get their signature so we could submit our completed list at the end for a chance to win various prizes. There were butlered hor d' oeurves (spring rolls, jamacian chicken kabobs, mozzarella & tomato), cake samples and chocolates passed around and everything was delicious! They had several tables set up with place settings, centerpieces, and linens to give you ideas.
There was a fashion show at the end of the expo (the last hour and a half). They showed us different gowns and tuxes and gave away door prizes in between. There were several generous door prizes too- 1/2 off a bridal gown, 4 free tuxes, toasting flutes, cash giveaways, weekend get aways, just to name a few. Unfortunately, I didn't win any of them but I did secure a tuxedo vendor! I got a great deal- 2010 prices locked in, 1/2 off the guys tuxes, and a free tux for my fiance. Not too bad, right? I'm surprised to say this, but I think I would definately consider going to more of these expos. They are quite helpful and we had a lot of fun too!

I would definately wear these for a night out but I was also thinking they may be perfect paired with my wedding dress -something blue! I need a super high heel/platform because I'm 5'2'' and my fiance is 6'4''! They have a 5 inch heel and a platform base. I'm thinking they just might be made for me but I don't know how comfortable they will be. Maybe I can wear them for the ceremony & pictures and change into some cute (definately tall) wedges for the reception. But should I buy the shoe before the dress? Should I really buy shoes a year in advance?

I like this one a lot too but I think it's because of the poppies.
I was going to start a seperate wedding blog until I found myself barely able to juggle planning, working, living, and this neglected little blog. So I think I'm going to try to post (at least) every Wednesday with a "Wedding Wednesday" post...starting today!
