Ok I need your help. Style Me Pretty posted this beautiful wedding today and I am in love with the dress! Does anyone know who designed it? (All photos via Style Me Pretty and taken by Mary Claire)

It has the small detail of ruffles, the sweetheart neckline, a fairly small train, buttons down the back and a small bit of rouching(sp)at the the waist and neckline. It literally is everything I have wanted and combined both aspects of the two dresses I found back home. Now if only the price is right!
It has been a busy week! We mailed our save the dates out yesterday and I am so excited for people to start getting them! I have to make one more trip to the post office today to send out the last 6 or so that we were waiting on addresses for. I also was able to send out my cookies for the Holiday Cookie Swap! I forgot the recipe in the package so if any of you girls want it just let me know and I will send it along! I also was able to send out the bag I made for my mom! I used Amy Butler's Birdie Sling pattern and it was super easy! My mom picked out the fabric and materials while I was home so at least I know she will like that part. I can only hope she likes the design of the bag as much as I did! I have pictures of everything that I will post soon! 

This week I have also been very busy making up some new items to add to my etsy shop! I can't wait to unveil them tomorrow! Check back then!

Wedding planning is officially in full swing. It is crazy, it has been almost a year since we got engaged in NYC and I haven't really felt the pressure to get things done until now! Thankfully we already have the ceremony and reception sites booked, the caterer, florist, and photographer picked and the cake/ baker paid. It feels good to have the biggest tickets out of the way but it is stressful thinking about all of the little details we still need to get done.

-Invitations (design, print, send)
-Ceremony & reception  decorations
-Finalize our band/ d.j. selection (most likely a band, I'm trying to not have a d.j. if at all possible)
-Find a dress!!!!! yep, still haven't done that yet.  I found two while I was home and I'm just not sold on either one. So the search continues.
-Order D's pants/ suit jacket/shoes/ etc.
-Out of town bags
-Hotel block
- Table runners (find fabric, sew)
- Table numbers(order)
-Escort cards
-Programs/ menus
-Finalize transportation to the reception for the wedding party
-Finalize our getaway transportation ( for D & I)
-etc. etc. etc.

Well I'm off to put in a few hours of work. Ill be back later with pictures of everything I have been up to!

I think it's Melissa Sweet's Liliana-

p.s. I found the strapless Amsale gown that you mentioned a few weeks ago for a steal-

best of luck.
