Ring Bearer! (159)

So excited! We just picked up Quinny's outfit for the wedding! Again, it was just the Easter clothes that Costco has to offer this time of year and the colors and style were just perfect! Best thing, it was only 17.99! It has grey pinstripe pants with a matching vest, a sage green button up shirt and a green striped clip on tie. SO adorable! :)

Random Wedding News (160)

Well, there hasn't been much wedding related activity going on here lately, hence the lack of blog posts :P But, I did receive my wedding invitation samples! I think I've decided on the style that I like, now I just have to spend some more time on the wording.

I showed Claire her flower girl dress and she seemed happy with it :) I'm so excited to have her in the wedding.

I talked to Quinn about being the ring bearer, and in that conversation mentioned that I was a flower girl in his parents wedding 13 years ago. He was quite upset that his parents picked me and Bethany to be in their wedding rather than him. After explaining to him that he wasn't born for another 10 years, he was still confused and upset. Poor kid.

The wedding nightmares continue. Bethany seems to be the one ruining the day in all the dreams, but I'm not sure why. The dreams have included a barnyard wedding, Buzz Lightyear sweatpants, bad hair days, and horse trailers.

Madison, my other bridesmaid, is coming into town along with my future mother in love and Marcus, my brother in law in mid April. I'm SO excited! Maddie, Bethany and I are going to see Wicked at the Saroyan here in Fresno. This was their bridesmaid gift :)

That's pretty much all. I think I found someone who can arrange my flowers for me :) She'll make my bouquet, the girl's bouquets, a bouquet for me to toss at the reception and boutineers for the men. So exciting! :)

Invitation Samples (168)

My mom and I have been talking about invitations lately, and we decided to go ahead and order printed invites rather than going the DIY route. I think it's better that way for this. I was kind of nervous about ordering like 200 invitations without actually seeing or feeling them, but when we started looking around, we found that most invitation companies allow you to order samples for free so you can see them. So we ordered a few from two different companies, and they came yesterday! I was so excited! I definitely have a favorite one :)

Wording (173)

There are some things that I really didn't think of when I thought about planning a wedding like the wording of the actual invitation. There are a TON of different samples available online. I've actually been looking at them for about an hour. I think I made it to the point where I really don't care any more. I do know that I want something pretty traditional - my parents will be the ones inviting, not Michael and me. This narrows it down a little bit, but still, there are SO MANY options!

Invitations (174)

I found the perfect invitations at Joann! They're exactly what I want, and they're only 25 dollars for 50 invitations. Right now, they're on sale for 25% off, but I'm waiting for the sale to end so that I can use my 50% off coupons. :) Hooray saving cash!

Dreams (175)

I've been having so many wedding dreams lately. Seriously. And none of them are good! Last night I had a dream that I was getting married and we weren't ready AT ALL! I had my dress, but no veil and I was having a super bad hair day and the stylist couldn't get me in at all on that day! There were these 5 guys who came and wanted to sit at the front of the church during the ceremony and they were wearing bright orange pajamas. Our pastor couldn't make it and we hadn't sent out the invitations yet. My grandpa and his brother and sister and their spouses were able to came, but they were the only guests. In fact, Michael wasn't even there. At some point, I realized it was just a dream, but it wasn't until after the wedding. Weeeeeird dream :P
