How beautifl is this clutch? Love it. It's from Etsy seller : sassidesign's shop. I think it's perfect for my dress and I haven't found anything I like as much. I think this will be my next purchase after my dress comes in next week.

My Ceremony Sandals Arrived

I'm so excited, my sandals I ordered for the beach ceremony arrived today. They are really beautiful and just what I wanted. I also got a call from the Bridal Salon that my dress was shipped today and will be there no later than Tuesday. I can't believe how quickly time is flying by.

These are the invitations I love. These are the invitations I'm about to spend a lot of money on so everyone can fill out the little enclosed card saying "no, we will not be flying out to Kauai for your wedding, your just not important."

"Save the Dates"

Regardless of the ever shrinking guest list, I am still planning my wedding as if people will actually be attending. So, a few months ago I sent out these "Save the Dates" along with save the date magnets. People called me right away to tell me how much they loved them.

So about this wedding...

The original plan was that Tony and I would go to Kauai alone and get married and have our honeymoon. This idea did go over too well with family and everyone asked us to please invite family and friends. We went back and forth on this for a few weeks, until we settled on the idea that yes, we would invite everyone and whoever can make it, will be there.

To be honest, I still feel like I'm not doing the right thing. Most of Tony's family say they can't afford to go, and none of my siblings are going either. In fact some days I'm down right depressed and the number of people who aren't going. I keep trying to remind myself that we originally were not planning on inviting anyone so even if just a few people go, that's more than enough.

It's just really hard to plan the little details I would love to have, when everyday who is going changes. I try to stay positive, but it's hard.

Location, Location, Location....

We have are using Diana Gardner of Aloha Weddings who is handling basically everything. She has been amazing. We have already boked the minister, musican, photograher and bakery. With her recommendation, we are getting married at Shipwreck Beach in Poipu and the Dinner at the Plantation Gardens nearby.

Getting Married!!

Wow, once again it's been a long time since I've posted. Things have been crazy, but crazy in a good way. On August 1st 2009, after nearly 6 1/2 years together, Tony asked me to marry him. Officially. We had planned on getting Married in April 2010 so I knew it was just a matter of time before he asked me with an engagement ring.

My birthday is August 3rd an Tony surprised me with the most amazing suite at the Plazzo in Las Vegas. I knew the weekend was going to be amazing and I knew there was a good possibility that my birthday present would be an engagement ring. Surprisingly, I was as calm and cool as the summer breeze. I can't say the same for Tony though. He seemed very nervous and anxious the first two days and I knew something was up.

The morning of August 1st, Tony asked me when I wanted to ride the Gondola at the Venetian. We decided to have dinner that night and go on the Gondola. Long story short, we had dinner and went for our Gondola ride. Mid way through the ride, I looked in the water and noticed all the pennies people had tossed in. So I asked Tony if he had a Penny, I could toss to make a wish.

He reached in his pocket and handed me what I thought would be a penny, but instead it was my diamond engagement ring.

I cried the rest of the ride and so did he. We went out for drinks and desert to celebrate and I think I have been smiling since.

Now we are planning our Kauai Wedding and it's been an emotional roller coaster as we go through the process of what has now become a desitination wedding.
