Lee and I have been searching for the perfect tie for our ushers, and we thought we had finally found "the one."
|Usher's tie, from Macys|
We promptly went to the Grand Forks Macys, were we only found one more of the ties. We exchanged one of the wrong ties for the one in the store, and we ordered one more tie, crossing our fingers they would send us the correct one. They didn't.
Back to Macys we went, this time going to the Portland store where we first spotted the ties. They no longer had the ties in the store, but they told us there may be some in the Salem stores. Today I checked out one of the Macys stores. I thought I found the correct tie, purchased it, and then took it home to compare to the original. It was the wrong tie. Same colors, slightly different design.
I have one more store to check, but Lee and I may be back to square one in our tie search.
In better news, I found my bridal jewelry! Over Christmas, I went shopping with my sister and found a bling-y necklace. The necklace is similar in shape to the one below, but the stones on my necklace are not random, but symmetrically designed.
|A necklace that's similar, but different|
|The earrings are about 2" from top to bottom and 1" across|
I did not take any pictures when I tried the veil on yesterday, but I do have a picture from the company. I will not wear the veil as far forward on my head as it shows in the picture, so the veil will fall a few inches below my waistline instead of at the waist. Please ignore the scary doll modeling the veil. She's freaky-looking.
|This company would sell more veils if they swapped this doll for a real model!|
|Ours will be the same, with different names, of course!|
