2 more days
Two more days and I am a married lady! To say that the week leading up to your wedding is hectic is an understatement! Luckily, I didn't procrastinate and only have programs to tackle. It's really surreal that after a year and a half of planning... it...is...here!
A while back I talked about my quest for green shoes. I DID find them, but am a little apprehensive about the color... especially for our church ceremony. So, I complied with the wedding Gods, and purchased some ivory shoes. However, I couldn't just leave them as is. I found this great tutorial on making satin ribbon flowers which I would add to the shoe. VERY SIMPLE, cheap, and it adds a nice touch! (and yes, I will still wear the green shoes for the reception)

Voila! I just attached it with a few stitches and it's tightly secured. The tutorial runs through quick directions. All you need is a roll of ribbon and some thread. Easy peasy :)
It has been a pleasure sharing this planning process with you. I advise all brides to be to relax, enjoy this planning period, and don't sweat the small stuff. I am currently taking my own advice :)
I will be back in a few weeks with photos and recaps. The beaches of Oahu and Kauai are calling our names!
