{ Details } Garter Toss

Oh, my darling fiance... He sure knows how to make me laugh. He's changed things up, and has made this his garter toss song. I can't wait for it :)

{ Details } Reception Music

Continuing with the music theme... Reception time!

What else could we as the wedding party arrive to other than:

Party Rock Anthem, LMFAO

And how about our first dance?
Dance With You, Live

Then comes the Father Daughter Dance, which I am torn between these two songs:

I Believe in You, Don Williams

I Loved Her First, Heartland

And the garter toss... Well, I can't find the clean version on YouTube... But FH wants P.I.M.P by 50 Cent. Let's just pretend I put the video here. You can google it if you want :)

And the bouquet toss...

Milkshake, Kelis

It's gonna be a good time.

{ Details } Ceremony Music

I admit, I've been listening to our chosen ceremony music almost non-stop to sort of "desensitize" myself to it all. It's going to be hard enough to get through the ceremony without crying myself dry when we've written our own vows, but of course, we had to go and pick good, meaningful music. Want to know what is going to be played?... Read on!

Pre-ceremony music will be as follows:

The Luckiest, Ben Folds

Question, Old 97's

Sea of Love, Cat Power

On to the ceremony! The wedding party processional:

Sweet Disposition, Vitamin String Quartet 
(Temper Trap Cover)
Couldn't find an actual version... so this will have to do.

Then, of course, my entrance:

Falling Slowly, Vitamin String Quartet
(Glen Hansard Cover)

A little fun for the recessional!

She Said Yes, The Wedding Band
(Mumford and Sons side project)

And lastly, the postlude:

Do You Realize?? Vitamin String Quartet
(Flaming Lips cover)

{ Life } It's Love.

Me: Honey, do you think you can help me with a wedding task while I sew?
Carl: What is it?
Me: Gluing the lace to the votives...
Carl: Oh, baby... You know I'm not good with crafty projects!
Me: *pout*
Carl: I will, however, go buy you Cheetos.

It's love.

{ Tasks } Make Up Trial

Ok, I admit that I've been a bit of a slacker lately. It might be because the wedding is a month away, and taking the time to blog really just feels silly when there are programs to assemble and votive holders to assemble. Even still, the wedding events carry on.

I realize there is much I haven't written about, but maybe that will all get said as the wedding wraps up.

Tonight I walked over to my friend Megan's house and we had a little sangria. After catching up and talking about what I imagined for my wedding make up. Tough, really... I don't wear much make up on a normal basis, so the idea of it really sort of intimidates me. Megan has done my make up before, so I really trusted her to just get and idea and run with it. After pulling a few photos from magazines, we headed upstairs and she went to work.

Before her magic:

One eye in natural light

Open eyes in artificial light:

The whole she-bang in artificial light:

So there you have it! Megan worked her magic and made me all made up without looking awkward in makeup. Perfect!! Now all I have to do is wait for my hair trial and put two and two together! It's all starting to feel so real!
