As I mentioned yesterday, I finally have a wedding planning update for you all! The reason I haven’t shared anything about it lately is because I haven’t been doing much! I basically took the past 3 months off from planning because I was so busy studying for and taking my comprehensive exams, finishing up grad school coursework, taking regular exams, packing up and moving to DC from NC, getting settled, and then starting my hospital internship! Now that we’re back in DC, it’s time to start kicking the planning back into full gear. Our wedding is in October (here’s our engagement story in case you missed it) and I can’t believe it’s only about 4 months away!
By the way — if you’re new to the blog and want to read more about our wedding planning, click on the wedding tab — you’ll find all my previous wedding planning related posts there!
On Saturday, I spent a couple hours at the mall going wedding shoe shopping with my BFF & MOH, Jenny! We had a blast trying on a million pairs, all different styles and heel sizes.
How cute are these flats? We were thinking these might be fun to change into later in the night for dancing… although flip flops would also be awesome.
We also thought these were adorable — very cutesy. Maybe better for the rehearsal? They have kitten heels. And I’m really sorry that my toenails are not cute. Mental note: next time I go shoe shopping, paint my toenails!
Some others I tried on:
So many cute options!! Since I was going to my first dress fitting immediately after the shoe shopping and all the places we went have free returns, I ended up buying three pairs of shoes to try on with my dress; it was hard to tell what would look good without the dress on! Once I put on the dress, there was a clear winner from me, my mom, and Jenny. These!
They are even prettier in person — very shimmery and flattering and we all fell in love with them. Now I’m just trying to decide if they are going to be too high or not. They are almost 5 inches (although the platform at the bottom alleviates the height a bit) and I can’t decide if that’s going to be a really bad idea with grass involved (our wedding is outside). Thoughts? If you’re married, how high were your heels on the big day? And was it a good or bad idea? I can’t decide if I should be conservative with height so I’m not worried about it, or if I should go big or go home!
And no.. I don’t have any photos of the dress. I’m sorry — the suspense continues!
Have a great day, everyone! Next on the wedding planning list is to figure out our invites. I’ll be sure to share details!
