I wanted to wait a few days so I wouldn't steal Ianthe's limelight. :)

I also had my first shower this past weekend. My sister and cousin hosted it in my hometown. It was great to visit with family that I hadn't seen in awhile - I know I won't get to do as much individual visiting as I would like at the wedding. And, we got some great gifts! :)

I had my first dress fitting yesterday so now you can finally see me in the dress and not the model.

We also got our invites out on Monday! Everything was made/designed from scratch. It was a lot of work but well worth it. I just wish the pictures were better - these don't do the invites justice.

Posing by the cake


Opening one of my first gifts - I hate doing this in front of people!

Thanks. I know people might wonder about the use of brown, but I love it! And we are doing a whole "rustic" theme for the wedding - lanterns, grapevine, berries, etc.

There's going to be browns, golds, oranges, deep reds, everywhere! :)

That dress looks so beautiful on you! You really found an awesome dress for your build! Good job! LOL

I am still in the looking-through-magazines-and-folding-down-corners-of-pages-with-pretty-dresses phase :)
