I love, love bright royal blue and I started thinking of shoes for me and dresses for my girls in that color, but then one of my bridesmaid's and my mother brought my back down to earth. My dress is a warm tone (a smidge darker than ivory) and I'm trying to express the deep blue in the tip of a peacock feather because they will be in the centerpieces for the reception. Bright royal blue, you're outta there! That's the back story on how bright royal blue went out the window and I realized I needed to tone it down a notch for everything to go together well.
I'm happy about this because when I truly started envisioning the bright royal blue with my dress and other things that've already been picked out, it was not a pretty picture in my head. These deeper tones and hues are going to look much, much better and that is the reason I posted those colors of shoes and just a few minutes ago those colors of dresses.
OK, now everything is out in the open! ;)
David's Bridal: Style #81255 in MARINE
(Remember monitors vary)
Obviously the Priscilla dress is more expensive, but surprisingly it's just within the budget cap WITH tax. I have seen this dress and it's color in person on one of my BM's. I've seen the DB dress in a green color and tried it on myself. I'm going this weekend to DB to see the color. Cross your fingers for me! (It's cheaper! lol.)
The Priscilla dress has a bow in the back which you can see in the video on the site. And the DB dress' bow can be moved to the back if the girls like it better like that.
Which do you like better?

Mine are 8%...I was SUPER happy :) but then... I read the "fine print." Oh, that nasty, nasty fine print.
"*In general for the five-year divorce prediction rates, those with less than 3 percent are at lower risk, 3 - 7 percent are of average risk and more than 7 percent are at higher risk."
Ugh. So I'm actually at high risk? Poo.
Okay, I'm not THAT upset because I pretty much boiled it down to where they ask you for your age...mine being 23 probably tacked on the percentage points!
BUT, then I filled it out according to Mr. P's answers...5%! So, I guess we're average - high, haha.
Any others out there at "high risk"? What's your excuse? lol.

ANYWAY, now that I'm not distracted by the holiday and family anymore, I'm getting really anxious to get a quote from him. Everything we discussed came together so well and I think would look absolutely fabulous. Just getting a tad nervous about those dollaz$$. I hate waiting, don't you?
Pretty, pretty flora.

What do you think? Worth it if they're the only ones I can find? Or just get something traditional? Has anyone seen any other fashionable royal blue shoes out there? HELP!

1. First Florist Meeting - went really well and I think we're on the right track with style AND budget
2. Registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond (took 4 hours!)
3. Met with photographer, Edward Zeltser, loved him and booked him on the spot!
YAY, my photographer woes are OVER. Edward is perfect for our wedding and actually came in UNDER budget. When does that ever happen??!
He is originally from Russia and has a photojounalism background working for magazines and newspapers there. He brought that style to his work when he started doing weddings in the U.S. without overworking the images in post-production. I was lucky to find him because he doesn't advertise and mostly does weddings by referral. I have a feeling I will definitely be referring him.
Here's what we got:
Edward + 1 assistant photographer
7-8 hoursOnline hosting
CD of all images in hi-res
TOTAL: $1,500 for 7 hours OR $1,620 for 8 hours
I'm left inspired by photographer images I love...

Wedding Bee Blog: Mrs. Espresso
Note, these photos are not from the same wedding, but nevertheless, you'd never be able to get BOTH of those shots with only one photographer. Most only get the bride walking down the aisle with her dad. Of course that is an important shot, but I really want to capture Mr. P's expression when he first sees me. I think it will be classic. It's a must-have shot for me. Having two photographers allows for capturing the same moment in two completely different ways. What do you think? Am I being stubborn here??
