C&C California dress, Chinese Laundry sandals, F21 belt, necklace, and cuff

Hrm.  These pictures did not turn out how I pictured in my head.  Details of the outfit are kind of lost...but at least you get to see a new part of the house?  Photos are of us, my family, the dogs, San Francisco/San Jose, and a trip to Europe.

Today we went with our planner to look at a couple potential venues for the wedding reception.  OMG SO MUCH MONIES.  Our first choice is sadly out of our price range.  $15k JUST TO BOOK IT.  NOT including food/liquor.  How insane is that?

However, our 2nd choice is not too shabby.  There are floor to ceiling windows all around with a super view of downtown Houston.  We'll probably put down the deposit on Monday.  EXCIIIITING!

I forget which wedding blog I read this off of, but I found it to be a pretty good tip so I'll pass it along.  Open a rewards-earning credit card for your wedding expenses.  You figure you're going to be spending how many thousands (or tens of thousands) on the wedding.  Might as well be racking up some points!  Plus, it helps to keep all your expenses in one place so you can better track your budget.  AMEX, Chase Continental Mastercard, Southwest Rewards Visa are a couple.  We might be able to get a honeymoon ticket out of it!

  7. the first venue sounds like a place that i reeeeeeeeally wanted to have my wedding, but was way out of my budget. it was the corinthian in downtown. i think the rental fee alone was 10k. have you seen it? it is AMAZING.
