SOWA Open Market Finds!

This weekend, one of my bridesmaids and I headed down to the SOWA Open Market in Boston's South End to see what kind of fun crafts we could find and to eat at some yummy food trucks!  You can see a bunch of the pictures on my Instagram page (user name: girlfromwollaston).  But the best finds were related to the wedding!  I found the perfect headpiece, and a bunch of brooches for my bouquet.  I had been searching for the perfect headband since I got my hair cut short again, and we found success at the market.  I left the seller's name at home, so I will update that tomorrow.

Veils...I'm trying to decide on one.  I like the idea of a short one but not a birdcage veil (although I love birdcage veils, I just don't think it would go right with my dress).  I like the design on number 3, but I'm not sure about the length; it's a little on the long side.

engagement party and updates!

This past weekend we had our engagement party at Fox and Hound and it was amazing!  My parents made the trip out to Boston which was great, and all our families got to meet one another.  Our bridal party all got to meet each other too!  So mission accomplished with the party!

In wedding planning news, I deposited on the limo and the rentals today which is a relief.  We also decided to go with Cake Spot in Quincy for our cupcakes/wedding cake (so excited about this).  We also finished our Pre-Cana classes this past Wednesday so we are all set to get married in our Church. 

I also got our invitations and Save the Date cards which I'll post in the upcoming days!

Wedding Shoes...again!

This time, for real, I have found my wedding shoes.  They are first and foremost ridiculously comfortable, they feel like you are wearing sneakers (thanks to the Nike Air technology).  And secondly, they are blue!  Just what I wanted.

Concert ticket escort cards!  I love this idea, especially since K and I met at a show!
