Hard to believe it's almost October and for me, that means a wedding is FAST approaching! This summer I've been busy planning Kate and Josh's wedding. Sunday, October 13th is the big day and it's almost here! Things are coming together, and if it all works out like I want, I'll be one happy girl! This is my first and will be my only foray into the wedding business! Needless to say, the closer it gets, the more I wonder if I've done everything I need to do, have I forgotten anything, is it going to look like the vision in my head, am I going to be able to put it all together on the day? I will be doing a few posts to fill you in on the progress. This one is about the dress, no, not her dress, my mother of the bride dress and Kailyn's little flower girl dress. I DREADED looking for something to wear, I don't even know when I wore a dress last! I saw this one at David's bridal while Kate was trying on her wedding dress. I liked the color, it was a bit fancier then my taste but they happened to have my size so I tried it on. Kate really liked it, surprisingly fit well and looked ok. I hem hawed around for a couple of months, couldn't make myself go out looking so ordered it. You all know me, I love a bargain, it was on sale for $99.00! I looked for shoes, they had some dye able ones there that were cute. The ones I liked were $59. which I didn't want to spend so kept going back. I lucked out, they were marking things down for the end of summer and I found a pair that I liked, now, don't faint, for only $12.99, marked down from $60.00! With a $5.00 dying fee, they ended up being less then $20.00!
On to the photos!
We couldn't decide what we wanted Kailyn to wear, all the dresses at David's were pretty pricey and not what we really liked. I got on Etsy and surfed flower girl dresses and found the perfect one ! It's from a shop in South Carolina, a linen/cotton mix with her monogram and a handkerchief hem. The monogram is done in tan as is the sash. It came quickly, the owner of the shop, Ronda was very helpful, and price wise, it was $54.00, much less then all the ones we'd looked at up till then. It fits her perfectly, she looks adorable of course! The pic of the one from the shop has anchors on the bottom of the sash, ours does not.
The name of the Etsy shop is Zadabug, (click on name to visit), the owner is Ronda Lancaster. I highly recommend it if you need a special dress for your little one! She also has other monogrammed items that are just as cute!

Kate and all the wedding party will all be wearing cowgirl/cowboy boots.
This is a picture of the ones (or one) I found at Khol's for Kailyn.
They were $54.00, I waited for a coupon and not only did I get 20% off, they were on sale for $21.00! They ended up being less then $20.00! This pic is from Kohl's website, I ordered K's but they haven't gotten here yet. They are brown with embroidered flowers. She loved "stomping around" in them.
Now, my dress
Sorry this pic isn't the best, it's from David's web site not so good, but it will give you an idea of the details and shape of the dress
It's a really pretty taupe color which this photo does not do justice
Next time, I'll tell you all about the place we found to have the wedding!
Till next time.....
This week I'll be partying at:
