Whew….this weekend was my bachelorette party…and my girls could not have planned a better night. First we went to Chinatown Brasserie for dinner…you’ll notice in the picture I’m coasting on my second cocktail [it doesn’t take much]. Then we headed to the W hotel where we spent the night watching Sex and the City episodes and drinking champagne….in the morning, we headed to Oasis Day Spa for manis, pedis, and massages [and creating a ruckus in the relaxation room!]. Rounding out the afternoon we grabbed some lunch at Le Pain Quotidien and shopped til I dropped [found the perfect rehearsal dinner dress at BCBG]. All in all, a wonderful bachelorette party free of strippers and full of fun! thanks K, R, T, J and L!

I had my first dress fitting yesterday since buying the dress 11 months ago….and whew, it sure makes all this feel real. Here’s a sneak peak….
So you’ve been hearing me go on and on about the colors for our wedding….well finally, I’ve got the fabric inspirations to show you! Being an interior designer, I’m lucky enough to have access to an amazing array of fabrics and colors, and these are all ones we’ve worked with at our office. I actually got the inspiration from a bench cushion we designed for a client a year ago… it was various shades of green, and then I added in the shot of yellow and white. The fabrics will be wrapped around our centerpiece vases, three for each table, and then filled with various white flowers. I’ll be experimenting whether its better to doublestick tape them to the vases, or to sew sleeves. You’ll also notice I went a little crazy at the ribbon stores….I just can’t help myself! I plan on working all of them in somehow, but I’ll leave that a mystery for now.
