My mom's friend Alena is doing my hair (and possibly the BM's as well, it's up to them, I'm not going to force them to). She did a fabulous job! She did a free consultation for me and brought everything I wanted together for me! She has forbidden me from cutting my hair until the wedding (in that case, it will be MUCH longer, cause my hair grows almost an inch a month and I have over 7 months to go!)

Again, she did an AMAZING job! I have very difficult hair as I am half pacific islander, and my hair is VERY thick and kind of wire-y. This took her about an hour but it flew by! She's very personable and fun [: 

Also, when I came back to the house afterward, FI's face lit up and his jaw dropped! He kept exclaiming all night how pretty it looked [:


I got my tiara at Icing's by Claire's for approx. $15. I love it because it is simple and will work with tying in the pearl/crystal beads on my gown with the pearl necklace/earring set I'll be wearing. I also love the price because, to be honest, I don't know that I'll ever wear the thing again... though I did have fun prancing around Costco price-shopping like a princess!! 

The Dress!

Grandma is making me this dress... it's beautiful and I can't wait to actually try it on!
She hand-beaded the entire bodice, which is absolutely incredible!
