wedding bliss

I have never been the typical girl that had her wedding colors and details planned out before she even had a serious boyfriend. But I have to admit, now that the time has come for me, its all I can think about! I love looking for ideas and finding new projects for the DIY bride. Here are some of the things I've been finding inspiration in...



One of the projects I'm most excited about are these moss-covered monogram letters. How cute is that? I'm also really excited about the monogram wax seals that will go on each invite; just to add a little personal touch.


Here are the bridesmaids dresses which are gold. They were actually the first thing I bought long before Lance and I were engaged. And I'm thinking a little embellishment around the bottom edge (lace, perhaps?) would be darling and so easy to do!


I will be wearing my mom's wedding dress. It fits me like a glove and is so beautiful! We found an amazing seamstress in Salt Lake that is making a few changes to it. I love the thought of being sealed to my sweetheart in the same dress my mom was sealed to hers in 27 years ago. Its classic vintage too; ivory from age & gorgeous lace.... I can't wait to see the final project! I'll post when we get engagements and bridals taken. In the meantime, thanks fellow bloggers for your love and support! :)

Chrissy CONGRATS! I'm so excited for you. That's so funny that your new last name will be walker. Want to hear something even stranger, I noticed your fiance's name is lance walker-that's my dad's name crazy. Anyways, I hope that you are doing well. I was secretly hoping we had some classes together this semester-oh well there's always next semester.
