This past week I have been looking around wedding/bride web sites trying to decide on wedding invitations, head wear, jewelry, etc.  I have found some things I like, but really am just more confused than ever!  My favorite wedding blog is by Bride Chic.  She always has such beautiful dresses and pictures on her blog.  Some really great ideas.  She recently did a post for Onewed on bridal head pieces and veils.  Here is the post by Bride Chic on Onewed.  I really love the head piece below but don't know if  1. I could pull it off (I'm not 20!) and 2. it would go with my dress.  

Hopefully, we will be able to set a date and get married soon because the more I browse the Internet, the more confused I get.  There are just too many cute options!!  Here are some of my favs.

Covered Swarovski Crystal Monogram Wedding Cake Top
Another option for the cake topper -Simply Beautiful.

I really love these invitations, but they might be a little too expensive.  Since we are having a small wedding and don't need many it might be an option.  There are just so many really attractive invitations available now.  Yikes!

Other than that I have been totally sick with this asthma/pneumonia or whatever thing that's going on in my chest.  I am going to have to just give it up and go to the doctor because it doesn't seem to want to clear up by itself despite advair, mucinex, claritin, and singulair.  I think I would have pulled through all right if I didn't keep having anxiety attacks which seems to have some connection with my asthma and breathing.

What's even more amazing is the anxiety attacks are have nothing to do with having to deal with the Boy's Asperger's or anything related to Asperger's and it also does not have anything to do with wedding planning, racing or my relationship with the Murph.  That's all good!  

This is actually the first time I've had back to back attacks and the first time my inhaler doesn't seem to help and I can't control it on my own.

I feel like crap.  <sigh>


  1. As a guy, they all look lovely to me and I know, that your man would love to see you in any of them. So don't worry too much, just try to enjoy the planning as best you can.

    1. Thanks! The Murph doesn't even want a cake. I told him it's required. He said he likes the second head thingy the best. He is very conservative. Nothing to puffy or fluffy! lol

  2. That white cake with crystals is perfectly suited to what you'll be wearing -elegant with some sparkle.
    Headpieces...something with sparkle and feathery stuff would be suitable and "jazzy". :)
    Agreed, it's time to get yourself to the doctor. Could be bronchitis or "walking" pneumonia..

    1. My mom has already sent me three emails after reading this post telling me to get to the doctor. I am going tomorrow if I'm not better.

      I do love that sparkly cake!

  3. I love that hair piece in the fourth image!!! And I hope you get to feeling better soon. There is nothing worse than being sick and not being able to get a quick run in.

    1. It's so hard to decide. I love them all. I haven't felt like running. I canceled my long run on Sunday.
