I'm excited about this week's Wedding Wednesday because accessories are how you make your wedding special and different. Are you ready for some picture overload?

1. how it all began: how you met, first date, first kiss, how long did you date? first picture together.....etc.
2. when you knew he was the one: self explanatory.. but how and when did you know?
3. proposal: how it happened, how long were you engaged for? was it a total surprise?  pictures of that... etc.
4. the ring:  tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!
5. engagement/bridal pictures: let's see em!
6. the colors: show some of the flower and colors you used
7. the dress: was it what you always imagined? did you have it made for you? white or ivory?
8. the little accessories: you know, veil? shoes? jewelry? what did your bridesmaids wear?
9. the reception: where was it at? show us some pictures! what day did you get married?
10. the cake/food: i love food. so tell me about what you had at your wedding!
11. your song and/or the first song you danced to at your wedding: share a music video or lyrics if you can!
12. favorite part of the day and least favorite part of the day: can be anything.

14. thoughts on marriage: what is the easiest/hardest part? if you could change anything, what would it be?
15. first place that you lived together: pics if you have them!
16. kids: do you have any yet? if not, when do you plan on it? how many do you want? any tips on good/bad birth control?
17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

I looked forever for red flats in the right color. I finally settled on these oxford inspired HushPuppies. Super comfy and perfect for standing all day long.

You want to know something awesome? My friend Monica who took me to get my dress, used to work at that store, and her boss was awesome. She was SO nice and on the dl just gave me my jewelry.

And when I went to pick up my dress, somehow my veil wasn't included in my order, so she said oh, it must have been that month that we were doing free veils or something so she just gave me my veil. Now that is good customer service, and an awesome connection. So go support the Allyses in American Fork. I loved loved loved my veil. It was super long and had beautiful beading all along the edge, was one tier and ivory. I lent it to my friend Meagan for her wedding. I believe this is my veil.

All of the boys wore red suspenders, and the little boys wore bow ties!
And finally my bridesmaids all wore simple red dresses that we picked a pattern out for and they all made themselves.
Holy picture overload. Sorry if I picture overload you in these Wedding Wednesday posts!

Absolutely love red as a bridesmaid's color, and those bow ties the boys wore...so cute :) And yes, I see the beading along the edge of your veil. Perfect touch. Not too much, which makes it look amazing. And yes, comfy shoes I'm sure are what every bride needs. I would choose something like that too, and I love that you chose red shoes, too. :) Love them!!!!

Love the pics, you can never include too many!

Tell Hal he's welcome over for beef-and-cheese dinner anytime! And I'll make you something with chicken so you won't feel left out...good for you though for not eating beef and cheese. I should do something like that, but let's be honest--it will never happen.
