i apologize Emily Post

I had all these elaborate plans on how I was going to ask my bridesmaids. Letter, take them to dinner, etc. My best friend was in town from Pennsylvania and we were going to a party. We stopped at a classy wine shop called "Rite-Aid." I got so excited to ask her I did right then and there in the wine aisle. We even got a picture! She was so excited. It just goes to show that your friends will be thrilled to be a part of your special day. It does not matter how you ask!

Swoozies is a great site for tons of wedding stuff! I just stumbled upon it yesterday.I am getting one of my bridesmaids gifts from here. 

Reception Pics

Here are some pictures of where my reception will be. The first is the view from the dinning room. It overlooks the paddock, which is where the cocktail hour will be. The second is one of the many jockey paintings in the bar area. The last is the entry way to the reception. Obviously the grass will be greener by then! Getting excited!

china obsessed lately

In the midst of all the planning I had kind of forgotten about registering! It is super fun but also time consuming with all of the choices. I finally made my decision and decided to go with Herend Golden Edge. It is very simple with a golden trim. I also wanted some color and loved the Herend Queen Victoria. I decided to choose it just for the dessert plates. We found it both at Dolfingers in Louisville and LV Harkness in Lexington. I love it! The only downfall is it will most likely be boxed up for years until we have our house! More registry updates to come!
