Today is a pretty neat day. A year ago yesterday. I found out I was having a little girl. A year ago today, I announced to Dustinn and Val that they were going to be the parents to little miss Olivia. I'm glad that it happened all right around Mother's Day.
I went to the Adoption Awareness Walk today at Provo High School. My mommy went with me :) And I got to meet new people (Lindsey from the R house) and see friends I hadn't seen in a while. Adoption is amazing. And of course, I got to meet Cosmo the BYU Cougar! Go Utes!
We're all wearing the same T's. Alyssa made them. It's for the American Fork agency for birth moms. This is the blog. Design. Over your heart it says, "Love." The back says, "The Sisterhood of the Maternity Pants". The bottom is the blog link. And on your sleeve (which Alyssa is sporting in this picture) you can write the name of your angel (birth child or birth mom). Lindsey gave us the idea to make an etsy shop for the t-shirts. They're 5 dollars.
I went to a friend's bachelorette party last night. Oh my heck. It made me SO excited for my wedding and bachelorette party!
After the walk, me and my mom went to the mall and looked around and talked about wedding plans. I got a dress for little miss. Olivia will be a flower girl, of course! I got some sexy red heels for my bridal pictures. I also got a headband for my dress.
I have my dress and veil.
Our reception will be at Wadley Farms in Lindon.
This is my photographer.
Maroon, (Golden) Yellow, and Gray are my colors. Maroon will probably be the main color with gray and yellow accents.
Tayler will be wearing a tweed/plaid gray suit. Like this one.
Groomsmen- Gray suit.
Bridesmaid/MOH- Maroon dresses.
Probably yellow flowers for them.
Now we're just looking for a florist. Wadley Farms gave us some suggestions. Next Monday, Tayler will be coming into town so we can have a tour of the place and ask them questions about things. We will also be registering at some places. Probably Bed, Bath and Beyond. And either Target or Kohl's. :)
I'm also looking at some centerpiece ideas. I thought of doing like beta fish centerpieces. Is that too tacky or look too cheap? Let me know!
I'm also just looking for maroon flats for my wedding day. I'm not a heels person at all. But the photographer said it'd be good to wear some heels for the pictures.
It's SO crazy to see all of it coming together. It makes me more and more excited everyyyday.
So, the only thing is. I'm trying to look for bridesmaid dresses. Mostly styles. I'm having someone make the dresses. So keep your eyes out on some really cute, 2010 bridesmaid dresses. It'll be summer so knee length is what I'm kind of looking for and modest.
Any ideas or help or info that you have.
I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
I'll know more reception stuff once I do the tour at Wadley.
Such as music/dance floor/tables/decorations. Whatevs.
September 24th is our wedding day. The day after Olivia's birthday!
139 more days until I'm Mrs. Stefanie Despain :)
