Yesterday I got home from work and realized I was in an empty apartment. I decided it was photoshoot time and took a ton of photos of myself. Some better than others. I’ll probably post a few this weekend.
I’ve gotten nearly all of my attendants gifts:
Mackenzie (flower girl) – got her a wooden jewellery box painted white and pink that opens to a musical dancinf ballerina. I want to put a necklace in it that she can wear at the wedding I’m picturing a gold hear-outline pendant on a thin gold chain (she currently wears gold-saphire earrings that princess)
Heather – gift not purchased. This one is hard because it’s Brent’s sister and I don’t know what would actually MEAN something to her. I think I will get her a more grown-up version of the necklace I’m getting Mackenzie (her daughter). Any other ideas? Or since her husband and son are also in the wedding party maybe get them a larger family gift? Like what though?
Brent’s generally in charge of getting stuff for his boys. I tried really hard to get something each of my lovely ladies would truly appreciate and I hope his puts the same thought into his gifts to his friends. I already told his attendants that he is solely in charge of their gifts so if they suck not to look at me.
I’m still trying to figure out what to get the parents. My mom enjoys letter openers but how much could she really need one? I was thinking of giving the moms lockets with a photo of the two of us in it. Cheesy? What about Brent’s dad? I need ideas that don’t suck please.
I also picked up my dress yesterday. I plan on doing a photo shoot when I get home as I should have the place to myself for at least a little bit. For the short amount of time I had it on yesterday I felt great. It’s looking like it just needs a hem and for the straps to be shortened. Hopefully the photos turn out but the lighting in my place is awful and I don’t have a tri pod so we’ll see. I’ll try to get at least a couple post-able shots. I’m starting to re-think the coat I got for it though. The colour goes well but I think it might look too heavy. We’ll see tonight.
