Absolute BEST splurge

Our DJ!!!

Holy moly this guy was amazing!!! He had soooo many ideas that were so unique. He got everyone on the dance floor and having a great time!

The best part is that this "splurge" wasn't even really a splurge. His prices were really reasonable!!

To get the night started, he got every single guest on the dance floor for a group picture. Then after our photographer got a group shot, he played a fun upbeat song that everyone can dance to. Let me tell you... The dance floor was hoppin!!! If you are getting married, you have to have your DJ do this!!

I can't share all of his secrets at once, so I will leave it at that for now. I have been getting guest photos so I will start sharing those and start the recap process!! :) i'm so excited to share it all with you.

If you are in the San Diego county or north county and need a DJ let me know. You have to book mark right away. :)

Take care until next time,

Bitches and Effing Hoes

Goodness gracious... I am SO livid right now.

We had our rehearsal tonight. Everything was great. We practiced, we laughed, we had a fantastic time. Then the bomb dropped.

The head catering director at our venue informed me that there is a Susan G. Komen event before my wedding and that we would not be able to come set up until 3. The wedding starts at 4. Queue horrified reaction now.

Guests tend to arrive 30 min or so prior to a wedding. That means that we would have 30 min to set up the tables (including guest book table, gift table, and candy table), decorate for the cermony, string lights everywhere, etc. Hell no... this is NOT happening.

I had been told by my venue that if they were to potentially book another event the same day that they would call me to see if it was okay with me. AND as incentive, they would split the cost of renting the venue between the two groups...

... I never got a phone call and I never got a reimbursement.

This is absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable. They COMPLETELY went back on their word and they just expect me to be okay with it.

We are going to raise hell first thing in the morning. This bitch at my venue will NOT be getting away with this.

2 days...

4 days!!!

Where the heck is time going?!

There are seriously only 4 days until the wedding... AHHHH!!!!

The first set of relatives have already made their way to good ol Cali-for-ni-a! I can't believe it! The next wave of family comes in on Thursday.

Today is my LAST day of work before the wedding. I am going to have the next week and a half off! It couldn't have come at a better time.

Weather report looks FANTASTIC for Sunday! Let's hope it stays that way!

Sorry, I have very few coherent thoughts. It's more like a bunch of rambling.

I am getting married guys!!! AHHHHH!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

Take care until next time,

Bird Cage Card Basket

That's how many days until I marry the man of my dreams!!! Oh my goodness I cannot wait!

I decided that I have the best followers ever. You guys are stickin by me even when I suck at posting! I feel like I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off haha.

Well, I decided to give you guys something fun today. It is our card basket. I was able to borrow a white bird cage from FSIL (her wedding was last year). It was just plain white, so I knew that it was in desperate need of blingage. So, I came up with this design:

I am pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. It is amazing what a little bit of ribbon can do for you!

What kind of card box are you using?

Take care until next time,

Make up trial

I recently had my makeup trial at MAC.

Let me start by saying that I am OBSESSED with all things MAC. HOLY MOLY I <3 it! :)

I had an interesting experience with my make up artist, however.

It began fine... we discovered how we went to the same college... blah blah blah. She finishes my makeup and I look in the mirror and no joke, my eyelids were PINK! I mean PINK!!! Like PINK! haha

As politely as possible, I told her what the hell were you thinking that was not the look I was going for. I asked for more of a smokey eye look. She edited my makeup and it turned out much better. Although I felt the blush made me look like a hooker... I am pretty pleased overall.

Well, here you go!

Me, no makeup... oh God, I can't believe I am posting this...

And then... the finished product:

I am not in LOVE with it, but it will do... I will probably make some minor adjustments on the big day...

What do you think? Do I look like a hooker? haha

Take care until next time,
