Spanish Theme Wedding

We had a Spanish themed wedding which was so fitting for the location. The ceremony was at El Morro and the reception was at the Hotel El Convento.

I incorporated so many Spanish details throughout the day. My female guests were given lovely Spanish fans to carry when they arrived at the ceremony. My maid of honor and I wore bright red roses in our hair. I chose a form fitting very ruffly dress that was just perfect. My Spanish mantilla veil was the perfect final touch.

So many months later! A few small details I want to share.

Quite a few months have passed since our wedding and I'm finally going to start posting pics now and sharing all of my details. I've been so busy these past few months but want to get back into blogging.

It was an amazing celebration! Everything was picture perfect and magical. Let me start off with the shoes! I just loved my shoes! They were so sparkly and I found this blue "I DO" sticky adhesive thingy to place on the soles and well it's just too cute!! My florist made this beautiful bouquet of black magic roses. We pinned a picture of my brother on it so that he could be a part of the day with me. I know he was smiling down on us.

I ordered the cutest cake toppers on etsy. They are miniature wood people made to look like my daughter, groom and I. The little bride wore a dress similar to mine and carried a fan with a red rose in her hair. The little girl looked just like my daughter with a matching tiara and fluffy pettiskirt. It was the talk of the evening!

In 24 hours we will be at our gate waiting to board our plane to San Juan. We are so overwhelmed with emotion and very very excited. We still have lots to do. I feel like I've been packing for two months and STILL haven't finished. We spent the entire weekend suit shopping for T since we decided to buy a basic black suit instead of wearing a tux. We also bought a beautiful traditional white guayabera (see pic) for him to change into during the reception and he looks so HOT in it. We both work all day (I'm late as usual). T will get his hair cut after work while I pick up his suit from the tailor and then we are both off for some much needed mani/pedis!

Wow! Down to the Wire!

I just checked the weather forecast for PR and it looks like its raining for the next 6 days or so!! I'm getting nervous since the bulk of our wedding weekend events are outdoors. But I'm sure everything is going to be just fine and I'm praying for beautiful weather. It tends to rain a lot in PR and can rain in one spot and then its nice and sunny just a few miles away.

I have my final fitting today! I should be able to get my dress home if all goes well. Would have liked to lose another few pounds but it didn't help that Halloween was this past weekend and Kayla and I made caramel apples and home-made pumpkin pie. Aaaww but my baby will only be six for one Halloween so how could I pass this up??!!

Salon Martorell

The room that will host our dinner is so amazingly beautiful. We got a chance to see it in person back in August. It's a small room, perfect for our size party. And I guess to some, it may be a little strange, but that's why I love it so much. It's so odd and mysterious, the perfect combination of young and old. We will be eating at an imperial table. How often do we get to eat like Cinderella at a ball?

The room was designed and painted by Antonio Martorell, a prominent Puerto Rican artist and author who regularly exhibits work around the world.

30 Days to Go!

We are officially 30 days away! All the details have been pretty much finalized. We are now working on our vows and trying to decide what tux look for T to wear. And of course working hard to pay off all the vendors. I'm so excited to see everyone and begin a new chapter surrounded by my closest family & friends!

Our ceremony will be right in front of El Morro overlooking the main lawn.

2 months to go!

Today is September 13th! My girlfriend Ingrid called me today with excitement that we are just two months away from our big day! We have so much to do still and so little time. But every day I make progress. Right now I am anxiously waiting for a fedex package for a pair of purple sparkle sneakers that I bought for Kayla to wear with her pettiskirt. I think it will be so cute!! My poor baby fell and hurt herself on the playground on Friday and needed stitches on her face and I hope she heals up nicely by wedding day. I hope the glittery sneakers cheer her up.

I had also posted a pic of some beautiful purple shoes but have since found another pair that I'm in love with and they are the perfect pair of glittery Cinderella peep-toe pumps. So as you can see its all about the glitter.

My dress has arrived and alterations have begun. My mom went with me to buy my veil and we couldn't decide whether to go with a mantilla for the Spanish look or cathedral for high drama. So mom says to get both and move on. And she's supposed to be the practical one.

My newest dilemma is whether to wear an ivory rose in my hair or be bold and wear a bright red rose. I get mixed feedback from everyone so I'm not sure what to do. What big problems huh? If only all of life's decisions were this much fun all the time!! :0 )
