Yesterday, I received an unexpected item in the mail. A wedding magazine called GetMarried! I don't recall signing up to receive it, not had I been to the website. But I'm glad I got it!
Just a few pages in, they had a page all about the "Urban Cowgirl" style - my favorite! I saw this PERFECT J.Crew dress and fell in love. This is exactly the style I want. It's so.. prairie, so sweet and innocent, so RUFFLY!
Unfortunately, it's also $2.995. Maybe I can find a similiar one somewhere else when the time comes.
Okay, this is like the perfect conception of my wedding IDEA. If I had a trousseau, I would buy these boot place card holders and store them in my hope chest. They are exactly what I want. Maybe I WILL buy them and keep them with my mason jar stash in my "one-day" box - my version of a hope chest.
These brooch bouquets are really interesting. I like the idea of replacing flower items with others in a wedding in general. Centerpieces of buttons, spools of thread, marbles and jacks - I love those ideas. How much more perfect could this be? Um, how about the fact that they're only $8.95 for a set of 3? OMG.
I'd really like a vintage ring, but I don't think that's in the cards, so something that LOOKS vintage is the next best thing. This engagement ring and wedding band set from Michael M. is just what I had in mind. :)
The fall cupcake and dragonfly cupcake from Jacques Pastries are really sweet and I love the bright, fun colors used in the accents. I like cake, but I don't like $4+ cake0cutting fees. I would love to have pie as dessert, but these would be lovely as favors or even as another option besides pie.
