While I've selected Escada Marine Groove as my wedding day scent (yay!), I'm now also loving Lise Watier Desirable from the summer 2010 Neon Lights line.

I admit it; I have taken inspiration from absolutely EVERYONE in planning our wedding. We decide to forgo a wedding planner (including even a day-of-coordinator) and instead have planned every inch of our day ourselves (well, with the help of many generous family members and friends, that is) by borrowing from the pages of Martha Stewart Weddings and a short list of wedding style blogs. Our day will be a celebration of our love accented by the culmination of everything beautiful I've seen on the web since our engagement.

This fake wedding left me with tonnes of ideas!

Kara Underwood and Michael Gordon got me to thinking about a 'paper concept'.

Cory and Chris threw my 'paper concept' into over drive.

Mike and Michonne's wedding offered me the perfect project to combine something special from both sides of our family.

And finally, Grace Bonney and Aaron Coles's Savannah day truly converted me to a DIY bride (watch for our similar favours decorated with buttons from the Busy Beaver Button Co).


This Parisian photo (swoon!) makes me *almost* excited that we're bound to have a wedding day dressed in grey sky (to match the gents' grey suits). The grey looks awfully romantic and is the perfect accompaniment to her fluff of a dress. Image via Style Me Pretty (as usual).

I wonder if Thomas will be as dapper as JFK jr? Greg and I joke that any son of ours will look identical to this little guy (who has the same haircut as Greg). Meanwhile, the style I'd most like to steal for myself is Jane Birken. Images via Cat Party.

After two evenings (with one more remaining) of our marriage preparation course (think talking about active listening and answering questions such as 'how much money can your spouse spend without needing to discuss it together?'), I can safely say that I am making the right decision in marrying you in 18 days! Yeep! Even the tips of my fingers and my eyelashes are excited!

Let's run away on yachts in the Mediterranean! Images via wit + delight. These havens provide plenty of opportunity to laze about in one of my many horizontal striped tops.
