This is the last FAQ’s I will be posting before the wedding, which is May 14th, in case you are counting down the days like I am!
15. Will you be carrying a clutch?
I searched far and wide for the perfect clutch and could not find anything close to what I was envisioning. Thus, I turned to Etsy yet again and decided if I could not find what I wanted, why not just custom design something? I found a shop that was willing to carry out my vision and I love the final product. The clutch is pink on the outside and red on the inside (our wedding colors) and it has a special message sewn on to it to commemorate the day.
16. Are you having a Bachelorette Party?
Absolutely, but it is top secret for now. Just know that there will be lots of champagne and gossip involved!
17. Will you wear a garter?
One of the dearest people in my life is my ex-College Professor. I am the woman I am today, because of what she taught me both inside and outside of the classroom. I am sad that she will not be able to attend my wedding (she has classes to teach), however she offered to hand-make my garter for me, so that her presence would in some way be there. I told her to surprise me and surprise me she did! Not only did she create the perfect garter, but she made me two (one to keep and one to toss) AND she wrote me the most gorgeous card explaining why she created the garter the way she did.
18. How will you display your rings during the ceremony?
Up until a couple of weeks ago I was simply going to have our wedding officiant hold onto the rings for us, however I had this unexplainable feeling that I had to find something to properly display the rings. Again, I turned to Etsy and while I found a lot of beautiful ring dishes, none pulled at my heartstrings. That is until I stumbled across a shop that was willing to custom design one for me. I sent over a picture of our invite:
And from it, this was created:
I am so glad that I listened to that feeling I had!
19. Do you have a wedding planner?
Yes, who just so happens to be one of my best friend’s! Julie came into my life six years ago and ever since that day she has remained a big part of my life. She too married an Argentine. Unlike me though, she left New York City, reinvented herself, and has been living in Buenos Aires ever since. I owe my sense of style to her. In my eyes she defines the word fashionista! Before we were close friends, she was actually my stylist. Along with being my wedding planner, she is also my Matron of Honor. Everyone deserves a Julie in their life.
From day one of my wedding planning, I knew that I could trust her completely with making any and all decisions on my behalf. I truly owe her a world of gratitude for not only putting together the wedding of my dreams, but for holding my hand from 4,995 miles away every.single.day over the last year. Julie is truly a life concierge!
