I’m lazy

Friday, August 15th, 2008

Billy, this is in response to your question. Why do I have so few blog entries? Why? Why, Why? It’s simple. It’s because I’m lazy. Let’s see if I change that. (more…)

Wedding band shopping

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

Today we went back to the shop my engagement ring came from and looked at wedding bands again. I pretty much knew what I wanted because we had gone in to browse once before. The first ring I tried on today was perfect. It was even my size. I decided to go with the channel set because it adds a little more sparkle to the overall look, and it is simple and sleek which is what I am usually drawn to. (more…)

Happy ending (to the weekend)

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Everything seems much better from where we stand tonight than it did yesterday walking to the bridal shop. Once we got there, Stacy got a different person who was much more willing to help. I think he sensed that we were really upset and we weren’t being caustic, so he was willing to help us out and get Stacy fitted. After that we went on a mission to set up the tuxedo rentals, but on the way we stumbled on the perfect wedding band for Peter! He was having a hard time deciding what material he wanted the band to be made from, but once he tried on titanium he was really impressed. He’s never worn jewelry before, so the lightweight feel of titanium appealed to him. (more…)

Day of hoodie…opinions please!

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I have a really cute terrycloth hoodie and pants that I plan to wear while getting hair and makeup done on our wedding day. I have seen a lot of people get theirs embroidered but I’m not sure if I want to or not, so I thought I would ask for opinions. Here are the options:

A. The Future Mrs. Milcetic or Soon To Be Mrs. Milcetic (example). This seems to be the most popular design but then it’s not as wearable after the wedding.

B. Mrs. Milcetic Est 09.21.08 (example). I think this idea is cute because then it can be worn after the wedding, and everyone will know we’re newlyweds if I wear it on our honeymoon.

C. No embriodery, not as cute for the wedding day but definitely can wear it in the future!

D. Some other option…you tell me!

My second dress

Friday, June 27th, 2008

After watching a marathon of Trista & Ryan on the Bachelorette a few weeks ago, I decided it wasn’t such a bad idea to have a second dress. My main dress is very formal and heavy and I may decide I want to be more comfortable at some point during the reception or for the after party or whatever. So I went out today to look, with the intention of getting one of those allover antique lace gowns. I tried on about 10 lace ones before I gave up on it. Number 1 lace is so not comfortable! It’s super heavy and not all that soft. Number 2 I found another dress that is a soft and comfortable crinkle chiffon fabric. It practically feels like I’m wearing nothing. It has very little train so it’s perfect for dancing or wearing out to an after party. It’s also a new design that was just in to the store, so no one else tried it on. Since the wedding is less than 3 months away and the one in the store fit perfectly, they let me take it instead of waiting for an order. I didn’t think of it until I had the dress on, but it felt very much like it would be at home on the beach. So I may also wear it for some of the beach photos.

Browsing with Pete’s mom

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Today I went to David’s Bridal again, this time with Pete’s mom. She tried on a few dresses, and found one that she likes but was not ready to commit to anything yet. They seemed to have a much lager selection of mom dresses in Maryland than they did here in NY, which was unfortunate.

While we were there, I also noticed a headpiece that I liked. I got super excited because I have been looking at dozens of tiaras, headbands, combs etc and never found anything I remotely felt I could wear. I got even more excited when I realized that the band was made from a bracelet of real pearls and Swarovski crystals, which was fastened to a headband with clear wire. I think it so cool that it can be taken apart and worn after the wedding. Once I found that out, I knew I had to get it! Then I got to the register and found out it was half price. How exciting!

MOB Dress Shopping

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Today I went with my mom to look for her mother of the bride dress for my wedding and for her outfit for my brother’s wedding as well. We went to Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, Talbot’s, David’s Bridal, and possibly some other shops whose names escape me. It’s really not easy to find the perfect dress, but I think my mom is really happy with what she got in the end. It’s a full satin skirt with attached crinkle chiffon fabric and matching jacket. The jacket also has nice beading around the neckline to dress it up.

The order is in

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Today I finally ordered the bridesmaids dresses! I got in touch with a suit maker to confirm how much extra fabric we will need for the guys’ ties, and I ordered that as well. Now we just have to wait until they get here. I can’t wait to see them.

Bridal jewelry

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Today Pete and I went to look at a necklace I was considering wearing on our wedding day. As we walked up to Tiffany I was a little nervous (I know, silly). I had never gone inside before and I had no idea what to expect. I was nervous that we would not fit in with people who buy their jewelry there or something. That was definitely not the case! The woman we talked to spent a long time with us and gave us a lot of great ideas. Even though we decided the necklace I had my eye on wouldn’t have enough presence for bridal jewelry, I walked out feeling great that the staff at Tiffany is so kind and helpful!
