YouTube Channel: THE VIBES CLOSET
This post had been a long waited post I’ve been waiting to share with you all. If you’ve noticed and stopped by my blog often you might have wondered where did I go. I wasn’t active here for a couple of months due to my pregnancy symptoms. If you’re following me on Instagram, you might have spotted the baby bump in some of the photos! Yes, I’m pregnant with baby number two and have been dying to share the good news here.
Since this post is my pregnancy announcement, I’m not going to get into my pregnancy symptoms just yet. But I’ll be talking all about my symptoms soon on the upcoming post.
Pregnancy Announcement Ideas
After searching and spending a lot of time on Pinterest to find the perfect idea for our pregnancy announcement, my husband and I finally came up with our pregnancy announcement idea.
We were going to do something funny like making a funny movie poster and say coming soon.
Another one was to share the news with balloons saying baby #2 due 02/19. Well, we actually did this option and ended up not liking it. You can see the photos below.
I was 9 weeks 5 days pregnant when we took this photo.
After all of the searching and talking, we finally knew what we wanted this pregnancy announcement to be, Magic in the Forest theme. Something thats quite hard to try and make happen in this desert city but we did it and it came out better than what we were imagining.
The hardest part of all, besides getting all the outfits and props together, was to make our daughter, Alida, happily participating in this pregnancy announcement. She is super excited about having a little brother or a sister but she’s an active toddler which means it’s hard to make her follow photoshoot instructions.
If you have taken pictures with your child before you might be able to relate with us. She’s going to turn three next month and you know how toddlers are. Hard to predict, right? So we brought her favorite toys with us and had to bring her lots of incentives because what she loves the most are surprise presents. At the end of the photoshoot she got tons of presents for smiling and standing still in the photos. Mission accomplished! 🙂
Let’s talk about outfits a little bit. My husbands whole look was provided by The Black Tux, it was provided for our Instagram pregnancy announcement sponsored post but I decided to share this with you on All About Good Vibes too.
We are so happy to be able to include them in our special life event because I’ve been working and loving them for quite sometime. Their service is so professional and the people behind the scenes I am working with are very professional as well.
If you have never heard of them, The Black Tux is an online modern suit and tuxedo rentals. Simple steps to order with free shipping both ways. The suit is delivered two weeks before the event so you will have plenty of time to check the fit. We use them all the time for our special events. Feel free to check them out!
Now my dress, you might be surprised with the original price of my gown ($800), I got this beauty wedding gown from BHLDN but I got it for only $200. They have plenty of on sale gowns that are all gorgeous and will save you a ton. But the challenging part of finding the gowns here was to find the right size that they still have available in stock.
I was searching for my white gown from different places but I couldn’t find the one until I looked for a wedding gown. But well, I don’t want to spend that much money for my photoshoot so I went to the on sales category instead. My halo was also from BHLDN and I scored it at $40. Both pieces are still available as of today, so be sure you check them out before they are gone. My earrings are from For Love and Lemons.
Let’s move on to my gorgeous shoes, they were gifted to me to help complete my look on this special announcement. Thank you, Bella Belle Shoes. The design I am wearing in this announcement is FLORENCE. These gorgeous shoes are hand beaded with milky teardrop stones and beads with cross ankle straps and lovely tied bow at heel cups.
If you’re looking for stunning and comfortable wedding shoes, be sure to take a look at Bella Belle Shoes collection. You can we’re these gorgeous shoes for any of your special events like what I’m doing here.
Big Sister’s Outfit
Moving on to my daughters outfit, everything was from Nordstrom (dress and shoes). It took me a little longer to get her outfit because she wanted to wear fuchsia pink shoes and a pretty blue dress. I can’t blame her, she just loves colorful stuff so I had to hide the online shopping to myself. Another challenging part of this whole announcement was to try and get Alida to wear her floral crown. It’s from Amazon. She just doesn’t like anything on her head, and I don’t like making her uncomfortable. But we ended up using it when she let us for a few minutes and she looked so adorable with it on.
On the photoshoot day, I was 14 weeks exact. We’re so happy that we are now expecting our second child. If you read my post earlier this year, you would know that one of our goals to shoot for is to have our second baby and now we are pregnant. Even though I’m the one that’s pregnant but everyone in the family is feeling that they’re pregnant too!
I can’t wait to share my journey with all of you through this pregnancy.
Special thanks to my father in law to making our family pictures happen.
Hope you enjoy my pregnancy announcement post! Thank you for stopping by my blog today.
See you again soon my love!
