Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Inspiration

Today I was out in Dublin, OH running and errand I stopped at this bridal shop just to see what they had and I was speechless. I've been kind of nonchalant about the whole wedding planning thing but after walking in the that store and looking at all those beautiful dresses I just got so super super inspired to drop some pounds, look for bridesmaid dresses, photographers and much more..

Since, I'm a music inspired person I'm always looking out for music that I would use at my wedding and I recently heard a song on the radio that made me tear a little bit. I haven't really cared for many Usher Raymond songs since I was a teen until I heard "Here I Stand" that song is the absolute bomb!!!! I need to find someone to sing that for real!!! Take listen if you have heard it yet below.

I'm still unsure about what colors I'm going to use for my wedding and the reason why I'm so unsure is because the Ceremony location which is my church, the decor is bright red!! My favorite color is Purple and I think the red would over power the purple I want to use. So, now I'm on the quest to find a color that will go with the red decor or a easy and tasteful way to hide the red.
Well, there will be more to come until then be blessed.

On the subject of friends and such

It's funny to find out how much people really are concerned with you. I have 2 friends that live in Cincy and they know the area better than I do because they lived there their entire lives. Well I called both of them for a suggestion on where I could get my hair braided and 1 of them said she didn't know and the other one well never called me back. I hate to assume that she just didn't call me back but it wouldn't be the first time. She's one of those that umm thinks the world revolves around them and if it's not the latest gossip well you can forget it.

I try to return every call, email, letter, message that I receive and I just think it's a lil tacky not to return calls, etc. I have friends I don't talk to everyday but if I call them I know they will answer and willl help a sistah out.

Well, my hair is growing like crazy!!! I now have to find me someone who can braid without pulling brain matter through my scalp!!! No matter how much I stress to the person doing my hair they can't make it that tight she just doesn't seem to understand. So, now it's time to find me a regular braider with a good price. I went to the Africans and they wanted to charge me $85 for some braids braided up and put in a bun and I wanted them kind of big so it would have been maybe 10-12 braids tops. They basically ran me out the door when I heard eight lol...

I'm ready to do the big chop and cut all of the permed ends off because my hair keeps getting tangled, but I want it to be a little bit longer.

Well, I have to go I'm spending time with my boo.....
