A Sneak Peek at Wedding Planning!

I thought I would dedicate a blog post to what is taking up the majority of my time. I never knew how much planning (and money!) it really takes for a wedding. We're planning on having 100-150 guest & we're getting married by my maid of honor's Dad. The reception is at an old theater that has been renovated & it's absolutely gorgeous!
Our wedding is on October, 20 2012 & our colors are black, white & red. 
All of my bridesmaids picked the same dress, which surprised me. I wasn't picky about the dress, it just had to be knee length & black. So they picked the dress below. They all looked gorgeous & I figure this is a fairly formal dress that they'll be able to wear more than once.

 I'm not sure yet, but this is the hairstyle that I really like. I'm planning on having it close to this or half up & half down. Luckily, 5 of my 7 bridesmaids are licensed cosmetologist & I am also licensed. None of us will have to pay to get our hair & makeup done which is awesome! Starting next weekend, I'll be having my hairstylist (she's also a bridesmaid!) bleach my hair so that I can be blonde for summer & for the wedding.

These are the shoes that me & all my bridesmaids will be wearing. I want to have a picture like the one below with all of our shoes matching. Plus I figure these shoes can be worn more than once! They are a little pricey ($89.99) but they are so cute & almost exactly what I am looking for.

Here is a picture that I want to have taken, except all of our shoes will be red. I have to admit, I do love that hot pink!

 Since our colors are red, black & white, we'll be using roses for our bouquets. I'm thinking the bridesmaids will look like the picture below..

And I'll have a bouquet of red roses!

 I'm looking for our cake to be somewhat close to this but I want the black to be lace. Our wedding invitations have black lace on the front.

 I apologize if I slack on my blog a little bit in the near future. I've still got a lot of wedding stuff to finish still!
Have a great day!
