the wedding blues

I am getting married just about 4 months. 4 months is not a lot of time in bride time. Well I found out this week that 1.) My makeup and hair stylist who I was supposed to be meeting with Feb 21st for a consultation with me and all my bridesmaids AND we were going to sign the contract tells me that she just signed another contract with a bride that has the same date as me. "So sorry can't do it anymore." were the words that came out of her mouth. I am like biatchhh! 2.) The chef who was going to cater the wedding was just laid off from the restaurant we hired. He was a client of my fiance's and was giving us a GREAT deal. So now I don't have a caterer....and we are 4 months away. Today I am in overdrive. I contacting every caterer in the area to see if they are available for the date. I don't know what else to do. This is going to throw us WAY over budget..and out budget was small to begin with...i just want to cry.

Wedding invites

I already have my wedding invites. I am DIYing them. I bought them at AC Moore, bought some navy ribbon, and yellow pearls to spice them up a bit. They are classic white with a pearl border. I like them, but I am not in love with them. They look simple, but pretty. As I was surfing the web I cam across this website: . They have a weding sale section for 40% off!!! $60 for 100 invites. Here's a few of my favs...

Wedding Dress and Accessories

Got my wedding dress from J. Crew. The Rebecca Style on sale plus free shipping. I need it to be altered a little bit, especially the hem...its about 6 inches to long. Its okay though my seamstress is fabuloussss she is going to hem the front and leave the back a little bit longer so i have a sweep train.
Brooch $2 from ebay. I'm going to wear the sash so the bow is in the back and wear this brooch in the front.
Headband from ebay. $5

I'm also wearing a petticoat under the dress so it keeps a little bit more volume. AND future hubby bought me Ralph Lauren pearl necklace, earrings, and bracelet for Christmas that will look unbelieveable with the dress. Nothing is definate yet. I don't even know how the ebay purchases will look with the dress, but for the price I don't care if I need to keep looking.
