Southern Bridal Expo

So this was one of the most eventful weekends so far in my wedding adventures.  On Saturday I met with my MOH and went shopping for my bridesmaids dress.  I think I found it:

 After Six 6609
 The color is Pantone Honeysuckle

And for the guys we are thinking of doing bowties in the paisley print shown from Jos A Bank.

We went out for Sushi and had too many drinks afterwards.  My best friend and her husband are natural entertainers and I enjoyed my evening.  The next morning I met with a potential photographer and absolutely LOVED her.  Stephanie B. Kingston, owner of Kingston Photography is going to be my wedding photographer!!!!  We decided at the meeting that I should do Bridal Portraits in the fall since I didn't get to be a fall bride.  Sunday was also the Southern Bridal Expo in Raleigh and my MOH and fiancee attended with me.  I had the BEST time!  I met so many vendors. 

R and I at the "Classy Transportation" booth.
 Best Friend and I having too much fun with the props for the Shutterbooth.  Doesn't her afro look so natural!

Our next trip to the Triangle is in a few weeks and we have a few more vendor meetings set up so I'll be sure to report back as we move forward with planning.  A good friend of mine gave me a planning book from Barnes and Noble, the Gartner Wedding Planner and I highly suggest it.
 And my shoes came in !!!!  I haven't tried these on with my dress yet but I purchased the Lulu Townsend Valissa sling-back in fuschia and ivory.  I'm not sure which ones I'll want to wear.  But they look adorable and the heel is low enough for dancing.

Hmmm...I wonder how everyone else feels about the new blogger layout.   I don't hate it but I'm certainly not as familiar with it.
