Las Vegas Vow Renewal: Photo Inspiration

by Jamie Sanford on November 8, 2011

Countdown to Las Vegas continues – now it is time to look at other people’s photos and use them as ideas to create our photos for the big vow renewal.  I am definitely planning a trip to the famous Las Vegas sign for some photos, but let’s get some concrete ideas down first.

Love this one from Kristen Joy Photography.

Also enjoying this one with the “Eiffel Tower” in the background, from The Knot.

Not so much a wedding photo, but this from msmail on Flickr is a pretty silhouette.

What iconic photos should we strive for while in Vegas? Leave suggestions in the comments!

Las Vegas Vow Renewal: Final Hair and Makeup Inspiration

by Jamie Sanford on November 7, 2011

Countdown to Las Vegas continues – and now I’m narrowing down my makeup and hair inspirations for the girls at Makeup in the 702.

I could NEVER achieve these perfect waves, so this Kate Beckinsale look might be my guide for the hair. By the way, my hair is totally redder now.

Kristen Stewart was serving Priscilla Presley realness in her W photoshoot, and I like the dark eyes a lot.  I might want this without the giant wing coming out of the side there, I’m not sure that it will work for me without looking silly.

Britney Spears also has some great eye makeup going on in her new “Criminal” video.  I’ve been a longtime fan of Britney’s smoky eyes and nude lip thing, so this is nothing too different.  I think I just need to figure out just how smoky I want my eye makeup to be.

Next up, photo inspiration and activity ideas for the Vegas trip!  Please leave your Las Vegas recommendations in the comments.

Las Vegas Vow Renewal: What I am definitely wearing.

by Jamie Sanford on November 7, 2011

The time is approaching – we leave for Las Vegas in just a few days!  I’m so excited that I’m making fun graphics for myself.

So, as discussed previously, I had a plan for what I was wearing.  I purchased a dress from a website called Starlets and Harlots (who don’t get a link because they suck), and weeks later I had heard nothing and received nothing.  I finally complained to PayPal, and managed to get a refund, but obviously, I was still pissed because they had the dress that I wanted.

So I started finding backup dresses in a hurry.  I have bought and returned multiple dresses in the past few weeks, and over the weekend, finally confirmed what I will be wearing.

This is the Monif C Marilyn Ruched Convertible Dress.  It’s currently on sale but that ends soon, so I’ll list the price as $215.

I don’t look like this model, but once my friend Tiffany had tied me into the dress over the weekend, I knew it was the winner.  I feel super fabulous in this dress, and that’s all I needed.

I need to get some fishnets (maybe these Spanx ones), but I am totally wearing my previously purchased Poetic Licence shoes!

These appear to be no longer available.  They are perfect for Vegas though, with the attributes of both dice and playing cards. They are perfect.

I also think it might be cold, so I will be bringing along a cardigan and my favorite black velvet blazer in case it is a bit chilly.

Coming soon, a post where I talk about my makeup options and revisit the hair question too.  Las Vegas, here we come!
