Over the holidays I had several family members inquiring as to how wedding planning was going. I quickly realized that I still had two big items to take care of- DJ and cake. For us, a DJ is very important because they set the tone of the reception. I had no clue when it came to selecting a DJ so I asked several family/friends who had recently gotten married. There was one DJ (DJ's Direct) that had received several rave reviews. I had even been to one of the weddings that utilized this DJ and remember the dance floor always being packed with people dancing. Rich and I want to be able to dance the night away.
And of course, some beautiful pictures!

Erin, at Lucky Designs, did a fabulous job designing our monogram for our wedding.
I am so happy with the end results! It is everything that I had visualized (our wedding colors are taupe and champagne). What do you think?
Okay, back to Christmas shopping and cleaning. Hopefully I will be back to blogging more tonight! Have a great day!!!!!

Problem- I am blog retarded. I know how to post, upload pictures and do basic things but as far as creating anything asthetically pleasing for my blog I am clueless. I am in awe of so many of the blogs out there that I follow on a daily basis. So I am asking for your help! Please educate me on how to re-vamp my blog background and header (easiest way possible please).
And, it is Friday so I leave you with a gorgeous picture! Love it!!!!!

All of our pictures were taken at IMA (Indiana Museum of Art) and Butler University. Rich and I met at Butler so it will always be a place of significance to us!

- You can save a lot of money using silk flowers
- You won't have to worry about flowers wilting or dying prior to your wedding (or transportation damages)
- A lot of people have allergies and this would remedy that issue
- The bouquet can be created ahead of time
- You will always have the bouquet and won't have to spend the costly amount to preserve your wedding bouquet (I looked into preservation it it is pretty costly)
- Silk wedding bouquets travel well for destination weddings
- You can use any flower you want whether it is in season or not
These are all great reasons for using silk bouquets!
For a bride on a budget who is looking to cut costs somewhere, silk flowers can be a great alternative! The fact that you will always have the bouquet that you walked down the aisle with is awesome. Preservation can only do so much and depending on how rough you were with your bouquet that day it definitely will not look as good as it did when you walked down the aisle.
Side note - My mother had a real bouquet for her wedding but then had a mirror image of her bouquet created with silk flowers. If I can dig the picture up I will definitely post it but my mom has a picture of me when I was little dressed up in her wedding dress carrying her silk bouquet around! Haha!

I mean, what is not to love about these shoe shots?!
I am beginning to think that I am going to have to go down the dyeable route. Has anyone ventured into the world of dyeable shoes?!? Please share your experience in case I need to venture away in dyeable shoe land!
For the time being here are some pictures of shoes I found that I like. Let me know what you think!
And now......the love and lust of my life!
While I can only imagine that it would be heavenly to slip my feet into a GORGEOUS pair of Louboutin's the morning of my wedding I can not for the life of my rationalize spending $860 (*gasp*) on a pair of shoes. But hey, a girl can dream!!!! Well, I am off to dream of Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik shoes, feel free to snap me out of dream land and back to reality!!!
LOVE the center piece!!!!
