They're here, they're here!

Last month, I wrote about picking out the bridesmaids' dresses and shoes. Well, they're here! Ok, let me back up a minute. When the girls ordered the dresses back in December, the store told us that they would be in on January 27. I was skeptical. Mostly because I had heard horror stories about dresses taking forever to come in, and when (if) they did, they were the wrong size, wrong style, or wrong color. But that's why we ordered them early, in case craziness like that happened. So imagine my surprise to get a call mid-January from David's Bridal..."Your dresses are in!" I was (am) in Cumming, GA for clinical, but since I don't work on Fridays, I rushed to Augusta to pick them up. (Mom or Cary would have done it, but it was a good excuse to come home for the weekend.) The store was packed because social was coming up in Augusta, but I was promptly waited on and given the (beautiful) dresses. I look over them with a fine tooth comb to make sure that everything was perfect. And they were!

Next, the shoes. We had picked out shoes the day of dress shopping, but we didn't order them that day. The plan was to wait until Payless had a BOGO sale, buy one get one half price. The saleperson told me that there would not be another BOGO sale until January, so I checked their website everyday once 2010 rolled around. I even caught wind of a rumor that the sale would start January 18th...and low and behold, it did. So I placed the order a few days later for four pairs of cute sandals in bright pink. Not only were they "BOGO," I didn't have to pay shipping! {If you haven't heard of Payless' new line, Unforgettable Moments, check it out. They have several styles of closed and open toe satin shoes that are dyeable in 64 colors. And affordable.}

So, my beautiful bridesmaids are set! Their dresses AND shoes are in, they already have their jewelry, and I have one little surprise for them to complete the outfit! I'm so excited because I know they will look beautiful, and even if they don't "wear it again" I didn't break their bank accounts!

I've had several people ask me what my wedding colors are, and they are surprised when I say Navy Blue and Fuchsia. So, here was my inspiration:
