Wedding Wednesday: Details...and an Announcement!

No, I'm not pregnant.  Now you can take your time and look at the pics instead of rushing to the bottom to find out what I am announcing.  LOL!  It's okay, I do it too.

It's almost 6 months after my wedding and I am still posting these pics.  I wish I could be a super blogger like all of my favorites.  I just have too many things going on always and can't seem to be consistent.  Anyway, here are the pics of the little details of our big day!  We didn't have a ton of details because frankly, I didn't want to deal with coordinating all of that stuff or paying for it, but I loved what we did have.

Cake table.  Cake and cupcakes made by my SIL.

My shoes on top of the box our invitations came in.

My vows to JB.

My mom had this made for me from the gold and diamond she had melted down from her wedding ring from my dad.  She had it re-plated in white gold for me and it was my something old and my somethind new.

My hairpiece made by the lovely Regyna, along with some bracelets I didn't end up wearing.

These are the cuff links JB wore.  They have been passed down from pigeon to pigeon for each wedding.  The first one to get married bought them for the next and they have been worn by all of them :)

Borrowed these candleholders from Mrs. Awesome.  She used them at her wedding with a similar setup, so I basically stole her idea.

Card Box.  I bought the black and white damask print box at Michael's for $20 and then decorated it with pink bling and had my friend Monica help me with the engagment pic editing.

Placecards.  The Flower on some of them let the waiters know who had the veggie option :)

LOVED our guestbook!  There was a page for each guest to fill out with how they know you, where they traveled from, and advice for the couple.  They even had to draw a pic of themselves.  It was so much fun to read them after the wedding.

Since our first love connection was at The Palms Hotel in Vegs we did the table names in a Vegas theme.

Cupcakes for our guests

Pigeon Pin.  All the Pigeons wore them.  Read about The Pigeons here.

My garter

Bracelet and earrings on top of our cake stand

Instead of doing a slideshow we made a picture collage with our names.  His hame had all pics of him, mine of me, and our last name had pics of us together :)

 And now for the announcement.  Probably not as exciting for you guys as it is for me, but I am uber excited!!  This lovely couple recently got engaged...

That's them at my wedding :)

...and she has asked me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding!!!  These people have been part of my life since college and I am so happy that they are finally going to tie the knot.  I feel so honored to be asked to be a part of their big day!  Hooray!

Simply gorgeous...and don't worry, I blog every day and will be doing recaps most likely up until my anniversary. :)

And yay for being a bridesmaid! One of my BMs asked me to be in her wedding in Sept. and I told her I am going to be a BOMB bm now that I've gone through my own wedding.

OK, totally rambling.

Funny tidbit, Doug saw your cake at the wedding and said Wow, they put a B for Breanne on the cake. What a dummy ;)

And I am 99% sure Julie gave those cufflinks to Bud, but I think John holds the record for having them in his possession the shortest amount of time!

And I hate to break it to you, but those were a lot of details! They made for a perfect wedding :)
