Hello reader(s),

I'm giving up social media for Lent. See you soon!

Oh, by the way...

I bought a wedding dress!

Date Night?

Have I mentioned that I love a good deal?

Today's deal by Living Social is from Fandango. They are offering 2 movie tickets for $9! The voucher is good wherever Fandango is accepted (so, pretty much everywhere).

Forget Netflix or the Law School Library (our "go-to" for movies); why not throw caution to the wind and actually go out for date night?

*Full disclosure: if three people purchase the deal through my link, I get my deal for free! But, come on, two tickets for $9? That's a great deal!

For the rehearsal dinner

The event:
The night before the wedding, held at a fun/dressy casual restaurant Southwestern restaurant across the street from our church. 6pm, June. Indoor/outdoor patio.

The inspiration:
A little bit Palm Beach, a little bit picnic, a little bit Santa Fe. Turquoise, yellow, or white. Short. Cotton. Cardigan? Jack Rogers and pearls.

The dresses:
I'm having a much harder time finding dresses online that I like for this event. Here are some of the contenders.

The Dress(es)

Until recently, I've been focusing my energy on finding The Dress (and with only four months until The Big Day, I'm finally going in over-drive). I've spent days searching in bridal salons, department stores, and online, only to realize I don't just need to find The Dress; I need to find The Dresses. As in:
  • The Dress for the bridal shower/engagement party
  • The Dress for our engagement portrait
  • The Dress for the rehearsal dinner
  • The Dress for Sunday Brunch
  • and, of course, The Dress
We are also planning to have a reception (or two) after the wedding, but I can't even start on that yet.


Over the next few days, I'll be posting some of my ideas for these different events. Maybe I'll even do a Polyvore. Maybe not. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
