Bridalcentric Weekend Goodness

It's so much fun planning a wedding! Whenever I am bored (or Jon is playing video games and I want to sit with him but not watch grenades and snipers) I either read a bridal magazine or blog, or search the internet for wedding related vendors and ideas. What the heck do married women do all day once the wedding is over?

This weekend was very bridalcentric. On Saturday my mom and I went on our first bridal gown shopping excursion. Yay! It was so much fun and it made me feel like a REAL bride, eeek. Once they put the veil on for the first time, I definitely teared up a smidgen. I tried on pretty much every variety of dress there was from super conservative to a little too sexy. Although I did not by any means find "the dress" I definitely got a feel for what looks good on and what doesn't. My mom might have a different opinion though because (in very uncharacteristic fashion) she kept telling me everything was too revealing! I think she was having a motherly moment or two. All in all, it was a great trip but it just whetted my appetite for more dress shopping!

Continuing on with the weddingyness, today Jon and I met up with Paul and Leanne from Sargeant Photography. We really like their artsy style and we got along great with them. I think that's really important since the photographers are probable the people we will be spending the majority of our time with on our wedding day. They were very down to earth and easy to talk with and they seemed to be about our age. They showed us some of their albums of work and talked over our "vision" for our big day. It was fun. Plus we were in Santa Monica and it was gorgeous out so what more could you ask for! We are still looking around at other photographers but this was a very good starting off point for us to practice our wit and charm along with our amazing haggling skills.

I'm sure there will be more updates (than you can handle!) soon but that's all for now.

I bet you looked sooooo BEAUTIFUL in all those dresses baby. If you don't pick that super sexy-ultra slinky one you described to me, you'll have to take me there so i can see you in it just once, post wedding that is.
