-Food tasting. We decided on the three dishes that we will serve:

Pot roast with garlic smashed potatoes
Chicken with herb rice
* DJ (Sounds Unlimited Entertainment)
*My Dress (David's Bridal - Paid For - Will Arrive In May)
-Accessories
David's Bridal - Necklace and veil (Paid For)
David's Bridal - Tiara (Paid For - Will Arrive In February)
*Bridesmaid Dresses (David's Bridal - Also Not Bought Yet)
*Photographer (Sara Thiry)
*Cake Designer (Hayward Bakery and Cheese Shop)

I BOUGHT MY DRESS!!!

I went to David's Bridal on Monday with Taryn to try my dress on one last time before ordering it. I worked with Sarah again who has been absolutely amazing. They didn't have the ivory/champagne in my size anymore so she had me try on the white just for the fit. Thank goodness I tried on the ivory first - the white has nothing to it. All the details are also in white so you can't really make them out, the dress looks SO plain!

The seamstress went over how they'll hem the dress which means I have a few months to find my PERFECT SHOES (which will be HARD,
I am SO picky). I'm hoping that'll be the only alterations I'll need to do but you never know.

Because David's was having a sale I also decided to buy the tiara, veil and jewelry that perfectly matches the dress. So expensive but I think it'll be worth it. They didn't have the tiara in the store so I'm waiting till February for it to arrive. And my dress will arrive in MAY! I am SO excited, I just want to put it on and walk all over
the place with it, hehe!

Next up: hounding the bridesmaids to order their dress! Kidding!

More soon!

Oh, PS: Here's a picture of the dress. Dustin, DON'T PEEK!
