Say Yes to the Dress

Well folks- after my big wedding reveal- it's been full speed ahead with the wedding planning! Starting with---

Wedding dresses!
To be honest, I loved the dress I got married in last year, but the thing I was most looking forward to about the forthcoming wedding is getting to wear the princess dress :). Thursday I went to browse and try on some options...

I had sooooo much fun trying on dresses and got great ideas. More on that in a little bit..

Friday the hubs and I decided to investigate one of the venues we were considering for the wedding-the Gateway Clipper. The Clipper is a boat cruise that travels the three rivers of Pittsburgh and is great for site-seeing and entertainment.

Our table-we lucked out and got one to ourselves!

Hello there Pittsburgh!

Yeah, this is embarrassing. There was no way my hair was cooperating!

The view from land- Station Square. Dress from TJ Maxx--19.99. That's how I roll :).

Overall, the Gateway Clipper is a really unique way to see Pittsburgh- however the hubs and I found too many reasons to not have our wedding on the boat. I'd still recommend giving it a whirl if you're in Pittsburgh!

Saturday we headed to central PA for a family wedding.

The in-laws

Dress from Marshall's- 19.99

It was really fun to catch up with hubby's family and enjoy good music and food!
Sunday it was down to business---I went with my MOH to pick out my final wedding dress at David's Bridal. I had a wonderful saleswoman who spent a ton of time putting me in and out of dresses and helping with accessories. And... .surprise!! I bought one :) :). I won't reveal which one I got, cuz hubby's been peeking through my things trying to figure it out. You'll have to wait and see!

In other news- we have tentative wedding colors!

Coral, yellow, and teal. Thoughts??

And in other unrelated (but super exciting) news--Batman (The Dark Knight Also Rises) is filming in little ol' Pittsburgh and we were able to catch a glimpse of filming on Sunday.

The Batmobile!! It was so exciting to watch them filming I could hardly contain myself. My friend Gillian actually met Anne Hathaway in Starbucks last week (are you dying with jealousy or what??). Tweet here @_GBean and tell her how much you envy her ;).

Well that's it for now--here's to another super busy month!

Which dress is your favorite? What are your picks for wedding colors?
