Engagement Pictures

Topshop

This coming Sunday Jason and I have our engagement photo shoot. I am beyond excited to finally have some professional pictures done with him and to meet the photographer. ( He will be shooting our wedding also ). I have spent the past couple weeks browsing around for dresses and ordering online. I think I may have purchased 5 so far and I’m headed to the store Friday for one last look!…I only need 2 outfits for the shoot but you never know how things will look in person so I wanted to have options. Here are some of the dresses that gave me inspiration.

Milk Glass-Wedding

by fromsugarwithstyle

I spend a lot of time browsing through wedding blogs and pinterest finding inspiration for my wedding. I am very fickle when it comes to decoration so when I find something that I continuously come back to I know that I have to incorporate it somehow. Milk glass is something I knew I had to have, I love the look of crisp white vases with simple flowers. I didn’t realize however that milk glass isn’t the easiest thing to find and when you do find it people have a tendency to charge over 20.00 for one vase. Since I need more than 50 vases this just wasnt a budget friendly option.  I decided to DIY some faux milk glass. I have been visiting thrift stores and good wills all over town and have collected a bunch of vases in different heights and shapes.

 

I got a white spray paint that is both primer and paint and that also bonds to plastic. This way it stuck to the glass a bit better.

It took me 3 or 4 coats to get even coverage but they turned out better than I had hoped!…..When I get all 50 done I’ll share a picture of how they all look together!

Relax

by fromsugarwithstyle

Now that our invitations are almost ready, the dresses are picked and we have the deposit down on our venue it feels like things are starting to come together. We visited florists last weekend and its incredible what can be done with flowers. If we had the budget I think I would cover everything in peonies ( which wont be in season ) and Hydrangeas and babies breath they are so romantic and beautiful. I am having a blast filling up my Pinterest board with all kinds of inspiration. This planning is making me wonder what a career in wedding planning would be like. It sounds really exciting and wonderful to help plan people’s happiest day. Maybe I should change my profession?:-)

I do have to say that all of the things we have to do does get pretty stressful. Here are a few things that keep me relaxed during all the decision making!

Wedding Planning

by fromsugarwithstyle

Wedding planning is taking over my life! Who knew that it would be so time-consuming. I have had to put the blog on hold a bit so that I have time to take care of the urgent details like the venue and date and dress ( I found a dress!!!! ). I feel like this could be a full time job. I am having fun doing it though, I mean I’m planning the day that I get to marry the love of my life what could be better!……Thank you all for being patient with me and I promise to be back soon! 🙂

In the mean time, here is an article I did for made woman magazine a while back that got published a few days ago!

Guest Posting and Dress Shopping

by fromsugarwithstyle

Today I am heading out to my first dress shop to look at wedding dresses! I have never even tried on a wedding dress before so I am both excited and a bit nervous. I have always had this dream dress that I made up in my head and I’m terrified that I won’t find one nearly as perfect in real life. Do people really just know the dress is the ONE when they try it on??? I’m hoping that this happens for me because I tend to be very indecisive and change my mind a lot. ( My mom can testify to that. She hated school clothes shopping with me for that reason! )….Actually the more I type this out the more excited I become! I have been browsing the internet for months looking at dresses and I am slightly in love with a couple that I am going to see today! Wish me luck!

Also yesterday I had a guest posting over at CreativeKristi.com all about what to wear at a blog conference! Check it out!
