Dorothy's Wedding Wednesday: See the Wedding Jewelry

3 weeks to go!!! I'm ready, but I'm not!

June 20, 2018

23 days to go until I walk down the aisle!!! I can't believe that our wedding is almost here. We've been planning this for so long and I keep thinking I have time, but really I don't. I'm ready, but I'm not!

The last week has been filled with meetings with all of my vendors and my wedding coordinator. We had a big group meeting yesterday and it was cool to get everyone on the same page. My friend, Caress, is my coordinator and she is on top of her stuff!! She came with print-outs, maps, etc. for everyone! I have 100% confidence in her on my big day.

During the meeting, I was talking to my caterer, Avian from Avian's House, and went over the menu again. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you my mouth was WATERING!!!! His food is so good, and I'm extra hungry since I'm on a strict meal plan until the wedding lol. In case you're wondering, we're going with Islander food- kalua pork, short ribs, shrimp curry with coconut rice, lumpia, titayas, and more. 

Anyways, one of the highlights of my weekend was going jewelry shopping for the wedding. My mom has always gone to this Vietnamese jeweler since my sisters and I were babies. Any special occasion, she's gone to Kim Quang Jewelry in Linda Vista. My mom got all my sisters their wedding jewelry from there, so she took me over the weekend to check out some stuff. 

If you know me, then you know I'm "half-bro," lol. I like girly things, but I'm not SUPER into it. I got into the store and I didn't know where to start! My mom, on the other hand, is like a Jedi Master when it comes to stuff like this. There was a beautiful bracelet that I really liked, and my mom was like, "I'll get it for you. You only get married once." But, I feel awkward having someone spend so much money on me, even if it is my mom. I'm not used to having nice things (Do Bro speaking here lol)

This was a nice experience to do with my mom, especially since we haven't been seeing eye to eye on some wedding stuff. Check out the jewelry below. 

The other thing I did was pick up my wedding band from Charles Koll in Fashion Valley. Steven got my engagement ring there, so we went back there for the band, and it's ready!!!! I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH!! I really want to start wearing it now.... is that bad luck?

It’s getting real! My wedding band is ready and I LOVE it! ---- Thank you @charleskoll #25daystogo

P.S. a quick update with my parents: remember a couple of weeks ago when I had my first wedding meltdown over my parents' invites? Well, I'm still stressing about it lol. I've heard from a few family members about how they're confused about the wedding date, and I STILL don't have back all their RSVPs! Pray for me...... only 3 more weeks!!!
