Stress Begone! Beautiful Invitations Be-here!

After the beautiful presentation of samples I received a few weeks ago, it's no surprise my wedding invitations arrived today in a package that looks like this:

First of all, (eeeeeeee) I cannot believe they're already here-- I just placed my order 2 weeks ago on May 9th! The boxes, the wrapping paper (where can I get paper like this?!), the personally signed order slips...Bella Figura, you are a class act and on top of your exceptional customer service, I could not be happier with my wedding invitations! If anyone is ever looking to splurge on invitations, I can assure you this eco-friendly company makes it worth every penny (and they also donate 1% of every sale to an environmental cause of your choice via "1% for the planet").

In the end, I didn't choose either of the 2 finalists from my other post. I decided to stick with simple elegance and ordered the Keswick suite. Like I've already said, I could not be happier. We're at the 4 month mark and I can finally cross something new off my task list!

Hello Lover!

I love satin. Satin ribbon, satin fabric, satin shoes. The only thing better than satin, is blushy nude pink satin.

I came across these satin Prada sandals yesterday. I swear they were satin in store, but the ones online only show picture these in satin:

They were so unbelievably pretty, and I almost blew half my tax return on them. Further incentive: they would be perfect wedding shoes! Well, lucky for my wallet, they only had them in a half size too small, so I left empty handed. On the same note, I'm not sure I want to spend a crazy amount of money on wedding shoes-- mostly because they aren't going to show at all. So unless I get the itch to spend right before the wedding (which is highly possible) I'm tentatively wearing the shoes from my engagement party (that I still haven't had the opportunity to wear again) or something else from Badgley Mischka and most likely in blush satin :)

Badgley Mischka "Dreamy Flower". Not satin but they remind me too much of the first time Carrie name dropped Louboutin in Sex and the City at the end of season 4 (as far as I can remember) for her last Big date before he moved. I tried these Badgley Mischkas on last time I was at Bloomingdales-- they look prettier and less wild once they're on.
