so gojira and i are going to do an engagement session here in LA around July or August.. (we are waiting for his hair to grow a little more longer and i’m waiting to get my butt into exercise fitness mode!) i have zeroed in on the venue though i am still hunting for the right deal.. i found this stunning location called the urban lights exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Im getting so excited thinking about what a perfect place it really is.. :) now off to find the perfect photographer.. at affordable rates mind you.. :P this light is turned off…
As you can see i’m continuing with the feathers vibe here.. I’m also going to make my own bouquet jewelry by buying the crystals and the wire from michaels and making something like these images.. it will look so pretty and unique… can’t wait to start on all these projects.. this light is turned off..
we’ve chosen the white casablanca lily as our theme flower. it represents celebration… and its just so stunning. I wanted to go beyond the classic white rose and into something a little more abstract looking.. i think the lily fits my taste and would represent something very meaningful on our wedding day :) (the 2nd image is not of lilies but just an idea of how i want the flowers to be wrapped.) this light is turned off…
i found this flower girl dress almost a year ago.. and ive fell in love with it… we are planning to have 3 flower girls and 1 ring bearer
a flower basket i fell in love with..
some ideas for the ring bearer
we’ve chosen gojira’s nephew to be our ring bearer and we’re going to give them the news this weekend when we visit them for easter. it’s pretty exciting to say the least :)
i’ve decided to take on the project of decorating and creating the ring bearer pillow. i did a trip to michaels and some fabrics stores to get the right material. will put up some pics when im finished with it :) <3 this light is turned off…
I’m going to have 2 bridesmaids and 1 maid of honor. They are all going to have the same dress.
front of my bridesmaid dress
the back. This is the dress for my bridesmaids… its got satiny fabric and the top part right below the chest is made of chiffon and goes behind to tie at the back of the neck.
this is the theme color (apple green) of our wedding and so this will be the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses. so imagine the 1st dress in this color. its actually a slightly lighter shade of green than this dress. more on the pastel easter green sort of color.
since the church is very traditional. bridesmaids cannot have exposed backs in the church so i will get bolero jackets made out of the same fabric as their dress. this is the design ill be using for their jacket. it’s so cute. and once the wedding is over they can use it to accessorize any outfit. :)
so far i bought these bracelet cuffs to accessorize their outfit but i’m not sure if i’ll be using these anymore since i’m thinking of using gold to accent the wedding entourage including myself. having some silver and some gold will be very tacky so i have to think some more about their accessories..
i am definitely digging the feather trend.. i’ve still not finalized on what but these are some of my ideas…
let’s see what ideas i finally end up with.. but im definitely having a lot of fun coordinating and putting it all together :) this light is turned off..
I seriously cannot believe it’s been so long since I blogged last. To be apart for so long from something I enjoy and feeling guilty that i have sort of disappeared and not bothered keeping in touch with my regular readers. But I guess this happens when life is so hectic and chaotic. Which yes it has been since Gojira came. First we celebrated Valentine’s Day, got the court marriage according to the fiance visa regulations, then we went to Vegas for a little short mini honeymoon. Then its been getting the paperwork done for his employment authorization and permanent citizenship. In between I finally got a hang of highway driving and we did a trip down to Irvine to meet his cousin’s family. We also did a trip to Los Angeles for a Rotting Christ concert. I can’t believe it’s April already. Time has flown by since he arrived. End of May we are going to Buffalo for my sister’s wedding and then to meet his cousin in Philly. I did not anticipate that it would take him so long to be on his feet so things have been quite stressful. Not to mention WEDDING PLANNING!! We have set our traditional wedding date in Goa and we’re really looking forward to it. But its been stressful because of opinions and tastes clashing. But I guess now things have settled down a bit since most of the big things have been sorted out. If anyone here knows me well enough.. Wedding Planning is something I really enjoy doing.. I just like dreaming about them and looking at accessories, apparel and trends. To be doing it for my own wedding finally is just hard to fathom sometimes.. Anyways I thought it would be fun to post all the ideas and pictures on here that I’ve gathered for my wedding. Sort of a sound board. Thoughts and suggestions are of course welcome.. Stay Tuned :) This light is turned off…
