sparkley bands

we have been looking around for wedding bands and seeing what we like. there are so many gorgeous styles and types! my engagement ring looks like this, a simple cathedral set solitaire. then the bands styles i have been looking at are mostly eternity bands - floating diamonds, channel-set, and bezel styles. i have small hands so i want a thinner band but still want something with lots of sparkle. right now i'm leaning towards the bezel (last one in the photos), as i love how each diamond is hugged by the band.

honeymooney ideas

st. lucia looks perfect, but is it too risky in august (hurricane season)? i read that it's in the hurricane belt and risk is lower than other islands in the caribbean. here are some amazing pics of ladera resort. each room has a pool and an open wall that looks out at the mountains. breathtaking... another idea is lanai, anyone ever been? maui is our backup :)

wedding updates

i have lots of updates that i haven't blogged about yet due to my crazy days as a grad student. here it goes - wedding will be august 2010 in woodside california. that means no more winter wedding but we are still going for that rustic yet modern style. we are in love with our venue, here are a few pics that we took during out visit. it's perfect with the big green meadow and the tall redwood trees, there's even a view of the bay if you look past the trees.

then... i got a dress! it's the pronovias diamante pictured here. it's with the seamstress right now getting altered and i am changing the neckline to be sweetheart shape. i think i'm going to go for a birdcage veil but need to try different types with the dress on.

That's all for now :)

pondering shoes

i am starting to look for shoes for my wedding... here are a few that i liked when looking around. i'm not sure whether to go bright and pink or go for a more classy subtle metallic color. also, our wedding is on grass so i could wear a heal and use heel stoppers or i can look for flats/wedges. tons to think about :) shoes are giuseppe zanotti, stuart weitzman, roberto cavalli, & kate spade (in order)
