Taking a Bite Out of...the Teacher?

Oh yes....'tis true my friends...I got bit today. HARD. 
By a 5 year old!
{This was about 20 minutes after it happened} 

{and this is what it looks like now, about 9 hours later}

Good grief. Sometimes I really wish I could just go to work and TEACH! (Novel concept, I know!) Is there another break coming up that I don't know about?!?!?

ANYways....moving on to more exciting stuff, let's talk WEDDING! :)

We picked out tuxes Friday!!! Originally, we were thinking suits, but by the time the guys buy a suit (Men's Warehouse doesn't rent them), and then a shirt, tie, shoes, etc., it would end up being like $500! And we didn't want to put all of Travis' friends through that, so we decided to rent tuxes, which will (only) be about $150. 
Here's the sticky part. My bridesmaids are wearing navy, so we wanted something to coordinate with that. However, Men's Warehouse has ONE non-black tux, and it was this weird grey one that I did NOT enjoy. So we are getting black tuxes with navy vests and ties. Trav will also have a black tux, but with a white vest and tie.
I'm thinking it will come together something like this:

{obvi with different flower}

This looks okay, right?!?! I'm a little worried that the navy and black will make our wedding party look like a huge bruise, and my mom thinks it is too dark for June. We were going to do Carolina blue vests, but the place doesn't have that color in a solid, just in weird, funky patterns! What are your thoughts?!


  1. I LOVE your header with your engagement pictures. That looks AWESOME! And I personally like the black and navy. I think that as long as your navy isn't pitch black, it looks really pretty. We went with tuxes for that same reason, too, and I am so glad we did. It was much easier! I can't wait to see you soon!

  2. Should I see if Columns still has that lime-green dress?! Ha ha, just kidding! You know who -

  3. i think we will look SOOO much better than that pic....because we have WAY cooler shoes.

    trust me will be FAB!!! :)
