Im finally in the homestretch. I only have 3 more exams, all of which I will be done with by tomorrow :) On an even better note, I got a few things for engagement pictures this past weekend when my parents got back from their cruise.

I got this in navy and I think I am going to wear it with a white skirt



I got this in white and I am going to pair it with jeans and a cute pair of shoes. What do you think, heels or flats??


I also got a cute shirt with the number 22 on it and a sailboat simply because it is my favorite number and we got engaged on my 22nd birthday!

Thank you Mom and Dad!!


To my readers; I was wondering what all of you were doing for your bridesmaids? I had thought it was fairly typical today for bridesmaids and groomsmen to pay for their own attire. Does this still hold true? Is anyone else doing it this way? Anyone helping their BM and GM out with their attire or even paying for all of it?

i think i am having my girls and guys get their own outfits but we may pay for their hotel and hair/makeup. it depends really on how much the dresses end up being, if they are too much i may pay towards part of them. i dont think its fair to ask them to spend so much money.

My girls/guys paid for their own outfits but we paid for their hotel/transportation and earrings in addition to a gift. I let them where whatever pale gold shoes they wanted to go with the dress. Good luck! Love your Jcrew finds. I want that jacket!

I'm paying for everything. I think it's fair as I've been stuck with some awful (cough, 3 Ann Taylor awful) dresses over the years.

We bought the girls shoes and the groomsmens ties, we are also putting together cute bags for the girls with goodies inside!

We're going to pay for ours. BUT, We're only having 3 girls/guys, and I'm actually having the dresses made (which is cheaper than buying them in my case). I think they can supply their own shoes, and the jewelry will be a gift.

My girls and guys are paying for their own outfits. I am assisting with jewerly, make up and maybe a portion of their shoes. They each want to pay for their own hair since they want to go to their own hair styles. I have a budget that I am keeping them under. Our friends understand since we are on a budget and want our day to be happy and not stressed with money concerns.

We are having them pay for their dresses, but then we are paying for the hair, makeup and jewerly. I am still possibly buying them customized clutches, but that might fall through!

we paid for everything for the girls--it was my mom's gift to them. the boys, however, purchased their own suits. i suppose i justified this because the suit the guys will wear over + over, but the dress is def. a one time only sorta thing. it was my mom's idea--so i went with it.
