I'd kill for a 60-degree California winter right about now.
But it's been worth it to enjoy some quality time with the fam :)
My big sis is getting married in June, on top of a mountain, so we took a trip up there to see the spot. IT. WAS. FREEZING. With the wind chill it was about 15 below. which is just not right.
LOVE this picture of Heather and the two men in her life:
So... my sister and I are polar opposites. I'm obsessed with planning all the little details of a wedding, and she would rather elope. Somehow she talked me into being her wedding planner. Which means... two weddings in 5 months. Am I crazy? yes, obviously.
Remember my shoes? I brought them with me all the way from California so I could go back to the Priscilla of Boston salon and try them on with my dress!
Curt reads this blog, so in order to keep the element of surprise I can't post more dress pictures on here. But check out my posts on Wedding Chicks and I'll share the love :)
I also experimented with my hair. I've been going back and forth on whether to attempt DIY-ing it on the day of the wedding. I think it turned out ok, but even this quick little trial run stressed me out! I feel silly spending money to have it done when I'm fairly capable of making it work, but I definitely don't want to feel rushed on the day of the wedding. Thoughts?? Anyone know a talented but affordable stylist in the Orange County or LA area??
I'm definitely going to order a custom hairpiece via here, here, or here (for reals, Etsy makes me so happy I could cry). This is just something they had at the salon, but my piece will probably be pretty similar. I'm loving the tulle and netting combo, but I think I want a slightly bigger piece of netting so it falls across my face a little bit. I've even considered making a visit to the Millinery Supply in LA and buying the materials so I can try to create it myself. But my lack of craftiness scares me. a lot.
Hope you're all enjoying the holiday season with the people you love the most!! This is the last Christmas that Curt and I will spend apart... I'm so excited to spend next Christmas as a newlywed :) But for now, I'm freezing my booty off, so please send warm and toasty thoughts my way!
