got the dress

with just 15 days to spare. I ended up ditching my original plan of altering a sundress I bought years ago [and doing so was not because the saleswoman at Britex thought it wasn't "special" enough]. Instead, I bought an anthropologie dress, off the rack, and had it slightly altered. I love it.

And I loved my seamstress Glenda Pongiglione, in Bernal Heights. She was super to work with, was very excited about the dress, very nice, and did an excellent job at a reasonable price. Any San Francisco brides looking for a seamstress should definitely check her out.

i saw the sign

From Signs By Diane on etsy

From ThreePotatoFour

In the next few weeks, I'll need to make a couple of directional signs for our home (saying "reception") and maybe another at the base of Tank Hill for the ceremony. We have a bunch of scrap wood in the basement, so this should be pretty easy.

(I really wish I had acted sooner on that sugar plum sign though! It would have been great for our plum cakes!)

music time and flashdance love

so now we're getting to more fun wedding planning stuff. You know, less linen selection, more cocktail experimentation. Next on the agenda is music. We're using an ipod to DJ, making some playlists to use at different points during the reception (despite the warnings from the American DJ association).

Our backyard isn't really going to be set up to have a lot of dance space, and neither of us are big dancers anyway, so there will likely be a pretty eccletic mix of indie, old punk, rock, and hip hop. odd, but so are we.

Even though we are not going the expensive DJ route, I am taking a lot of cues from an awesome DJ - Michael on The Flashdance. I am loving the mixes he's posted on the site, especially the most recent one highlighted on A Practical Wedding. They are giving us a ton of ideas!

shoe clips?

Now with my new dress (!!!) I've had to restart my accessory shopping. These great shoes clips echo the flower on the dress and bring a bit of pizazz to my yellow jcrew flats. might have to buy them....
