The Contest Ended!

April 6, 2010

Remember the contest we entered that I mentioned here? Well, we didn’t get even CLOSE to the top 50 (all those people had 900+ votes?!) But the amazing news? Crate & Barrel is giving everyone who entered a $25 gift card – making them even more my favorite home goods store :)

So in essence, we’re winners anyways :)


A peek at our Invitations :)

A Giveaway…

March 30, 2010

…that matches our registry

The wife of a couple that my fiance knows from college has a wonderful little blog called The Little Things We Do. She’s quite the blog-ess!

Anyways…she’s doing an AMAZING giveaway today for Le Creuset bakeware (yes really!) Wouldn’t these look amazing with our dishes?

Enter here!

Working on the Flowers

March 3, 2010

I can’t believe it – we’re almost done with all of the lavender organza flowers!

Sorry for the fuzzy photo – it’s from my phone, but it’s so you have an idea :)

At the church, we’ll group the flowers in threes (like above) and they’ll be on the ends of every other pew down the center aisle. Between the pews we’ll drape brown and green ribbon :)

What do you think?

And please remember to keep voting and remind others to vote – thanks!

Bed Bath and Beyond Registry!

March 3, 2010

I must say, the Crate and Barrel registry is by far my favorite, but the Bed, Bath and Beyond one is more practical in many ways. Let’s hope there’s something practical on it – it’s 16 pages! (Which apparently is “too small” for average and our sized wedding!)

Here’s some of our favorites:

Crazy awesome beverage container (okay, I know, that’s a bit nerdy to like):

Ice cream bowls :)

Bathroom Accessories:

Fine China (eek – SOOOO AWESOME in person, it makes me want to have fancy parties all the time)

(and I’m cheating because this is from the Crate and Barrel Registry, but we’d keep the china in this:)

Registries are SO FUN. I can’t believe people some people don’t do them – who doesn’t want to build their little future home from the ground up :)

Please Vote for Us

Registry fun!

February 20, 2010

A couple weekends ago, my fiance and I knocked out our registries in one day, and I don’t think anything in the wedding planning process so far has been quite as fun as picking out what will be in our new home together.  Crate and Barrel was having “Wedding Party” events all February long on Sunday mornings. It was super fun because they had the store closed down except for those of us registering and they had hors d’oeuvres and beverages. It was nice and relaxed, and Crate and Barrel is such a fun place to color-coordinate everything!

Here are some of our favorites from our registries:

And our big “splurge” item (well, one of them):

Check out the rest of our registry (search “C Vallely” at bottom under “my gift registry > give a gift”)

(We registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond too, but I’ll update you on that later!)
