engagement picture preview :-)

Okay, I promised some preview pics from the engagement photo shoot. :-) and I follow through on my promises! These are unedited and just a random sampling. Jessica and Mandy were both snapping pics that day and these are just a few from Jess' camera. We're working on the save the date layout, I should be mailing those out in January.

This pretty much sums up how we felt through all of the plane clothes pictures...

Then we started having fun with the 70s!

Then Katy Perry and Russell Brand took a trip

Then we took some legit 80's hairband pics. I feel like that 1st one would have been our album cover (had we been an 80s rock duo about 30 years ago haha)

So there you  have it...just a teensy taste of the amazing-ness that happened on our photoshoot! :-)

Also, I've been working out a really neat movie clip montage for the wedding. I don't want to give away too many details but I'll just say the movie list includes dodgeball, pretty woman, and everything in between :-) is going to be super funnnnnn! Seriously, I am so excited about this is going to be so much fun, if you're invited you don't want to miss it.

2 things FINALLY happened...

I picked a bridesmaid dress FINALLY!!! ANNNNNNNND we took pictures FINALLY!!!

Jeeez, I feel like this took me forever to make a decision. All of my lovely bridesmaids have ordered them, hopefully they will all fit and look gorgeous in them.
You can get a closer look at it here.

We're all going to be wearing yellow shoes (including me!) and I want them to accessorize in any way they want - as long as it's yellow :-). I'm not going to ask everyone to wear the same shoes, just the same general shade of yellow. That's not too much to ask right?

Here are some of the shoes I've been looking at!

Just for fun, here are some cute accessories :-)

I'm excited to see what kind of accessories everyone wears! Including myself :-). My aunt Judy loaned me her pear necklace, it looks absolutely gorgeous with the dress! I am so in love with it! I need to find some good earrings to wear now!
I'm also going to try and fashion some kind of hair clip out of one of our many brooches so Amanda (my awesome hair stylist!!) can put it in my hair. If you have an event and need a great hair stylist you should call her! Check out her Facebook page here. Maybe I'll get a yellow bracelet or ankle bracelet too. Who knows?

I'm really excited about TWO things: our invitations (which are close to done) and our save the dates (which we FINALLY took the pictures for 2 weekends ago). Hopefully, I can show you some more of the save the date pics soon because we did themes.

And honestly, the plain clothes pictures aren't even the best ones. Mandy is working on them diligently and I'll have them in the mail soon!! I'm super excited about them because they are SO. MUCH. FUN!!!

No other news in the wedding planning department. I'll be back soon with more I'm sure!

updates and engagement picture inspiration

Ok, first of all, can I just say that Nicole,  the woman designing our invitations, is super fun to work with? Seriously, I feel so incredibly lucky to have found her on Etsy. You should click here and check out her shop. She is very easy to communicate with and she totally shares my enthusiasm about these unique invitations. It's nice, and the icing on the cake is, she's a local gal from right here in Arkansas! I am so looking forward to working with her on these invitations in the near future. Hopefully I'll have a sample soon. I'm still debating on whether or not to post the progress. I'm thinking I'll wait until I've mailed them all.

Mo  has so many brooches wired up already!! And we are still collecting them. This bouquet is going to be so beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished product and the best part about it is I'll get to keep it forever :-).

I am so ready to take our engagement/save the date pictures...The hard part is getting Josh to commit to a date. For some reason, my fiancé who LOVES attention and being in front of a camera, has decided that engagement pictures are I'm having a hard time getting him on board with this. However, I AM RELENTLESS and we will have these pictures taken and soon! I really want to have some fun and entertaining engagement pictures, not your typical photoshoot (is anyone surprised by that statement at this point?) We have an idea of what we want to do, and it's classic Josh & Krystle...I'm pretty excited.

 Here are some engagement pics that inspire me:

I'm hoping to send out Save the Dates in December and then invitations in March or April. It will be so exciting to actually be putting these in the mail. And you can bet that as soon as we finish the photoshoot I'll be posting the high lights on the blog! So check back soon because these pictures will be taken this month! It is my mission!!!
