Hello October!

Whew, am I the only one who feels like September just flew right on by? It was like a blink and you miss it kinda month.

I had my bachelorette extravaganza in September (I'll be posting some pictures later) and my bridal shower is this Sunday. I've also been busting my butt getting our favors done (I swear, my life has been consumed by them lately). Since we live almost 2 hours away from where our wedding is, we try to take boxes of stuff to our hometowns whenever we are in the area. I also will have my hair trail and make up trials this month, too! Whew, I feel like October is going to fly by just like September did. 

In other news, I've been talking with a wonderful lady on etsy about making a custom garter for me to go with my dress (I was going to get a sports one for Derrick, but he really didn't care at all what the garter looked like, so I went with fun and elegant to match my dress). She sent me pictures of the final product last night.

Here is a picture of the set together:

And here is a picture of the main garter on a black velvet piece to show the detail more:

I love how they came out and I cannot wait to get them in the mail! I went with JLWeddings on etsy and she was just wonderful to work with!

EEK! I cannot believe how close November 12th is gettting!! Is it bad that my biggest wedding day fear is how I'm going to be able to pee in my dress?! LOL!


  1. I totally have the same fear! Lol! The garter is Soo pretty.

  2. girls... that fear is well fundamented... bottom line: You won't pee :S so it's either before or after ;)

  3. LOL! I'm a nervous pee-er, so that's what I worry about. I normally am pretty fine when it comes to bladder control, but when I get nervous.. I have to pee like no other. It doesn't help that my dress is SUPER poofy and I'm wearing a long line bra as well as spanx that go up to my tatas, lol. The spanx has that slit in the crotch area, but I'm not too sure about it. I guess if I need to pee, I'll have one bridesmaid guard the door and another one help me out of my dress, haha!

  4. love the garters! I think every bride thinks about how she is going to pee! I love all of the tutorials out there!

    BTW, I'm having a blue crystal I Do shoe sticker giveaway on my blog! check it out! It will end before your wedding, so if you win they will get to you in time!
