My brother’s tux

I got word that yesterday my brother Randy went to Men’s Warehouse in Grand Junction, Colorado and got fitted for his tux! Yay! However, my dad will be picking his up in Oak Brook so that my brother doesn’t have to worry about it and get it wrinkled on his trip back to Illinois for the wedding! 3 guys down and 2 to go.

So our wedding shower was today at Pal Joey’s!!! It was amazing! I had so much fun!! Everything was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who came, and for all of the great presents! Thanks to everyone who helped make this so special for Darrell and me! Also, if you couldn’t make it but sent a gift, THANK YOU!! I just can’t believe that I had been waiting for this day for so long, and it went by so fast! I can’t believe it’s over already! It was great though, and thanks especially to my parents for helping plan everything, help do decorations and of course for paying!!!!!

Wedding Cake

Posted on Jul 06, 2008 under Uncategorized | Comments are off

Also, while we were at the Gaslit Manor, we got to pick out our cake!! We already knew what the inside would be (in other words how it will taste), but we hadn’t gotten the outside taken care of. We looked through the book, and it was like the cake was made for us, and the best part is all 4 of us agreed on it right away! It has all of our wedding colors in it, and it isn’t like every other wedding cake in the world. Meaning, it’s not round shaped. Again, though, you are just going to have to come to the wedding and see for yourself! You’ll love how it looks, and I guaruntee you’ll love how it tastes as well!!!

Food Tasting

Posted on Jul 06, 2008 under Uncategorized | Comments are off

Today, Darrell, my parents & me went to the Gaslite Manor and we got to have our food tasting! It was so good! We all agreed! We are having the buffet by the way, and boy did they give us a LOT of food! We are all stuffed! Can’t wait to get to eat all of the food again!!! Trust me everyone will find something they like to eat!

Today, Darrell, my parents, and me went to Jewel and we got our shower cake ordered. Again you’ll have to wait and see, but it isn’t just the traditional cake w/ frosting words on it!!!!!! Hopefully, if you arn’t coming, we’ll be putting some pictures of everything up on here after July 20!!

Shower Centerpieces

I forgot to mention on here, that my dad made the most amazing centerpieces ever! They are so awesome! Of course they will have to be a surprise so I hope everyone is coming! My mom helped a little too, but trust me, they are so cool!

Rings….

I always forget to write about something. Also, this past Wednesday we went back to Roger’s & Holland’s @ Yorktown. Since our rings were in! I picked them up, and we now have them at home. The engraving was correct but small, but still it’s cool to have that on them. The rings themselves are just awesome! They perfectly match eachother as well as my engagement ring!! I can’t wait until Darrell & I get to wear them forever!
