Where should I get the Candy?
Can anyone give me some advice on where to order my candy?
There aren't any places around St. Louis to buy bulk candy...so, its going to have to be online.
Does anyone have any good recomendations?
So, originally I thought that purple and gold jewelry would go great together....but 2 of the bridesmaids dresses have a silver (diamond) broach on the dress. How should I go about the jewelry? Do you think they should all wear silver because the gold mixed with silver would look stupid?
I really wanted them to wear something like the second picture...with a golden colored crystal pendant.

Everything is coming together!
I did a bunch of DIY this weekend...and surprisingly everything turned out great! I was starting to get worried that my "theme" didn't go together, but it looks like everything is coming together....and there is a flow to the design.
1) & 2). I did a sample of the reserved signs, and I think I like the white over the pink & purple, rather than just the pink over the purple...since the chairs are white I think it goes better.
3) & 4). Oooh doesn't the ribbon board look good!
5) & 6). I also made a mock sample menu to place in the napkins at each seat...something I wasn't going to do, but it looks so cute!
7). I did a mock ceremony program too! The design on the program/menu/place cards I got from Pashweddings.com
8)I tested out one of the candy bar vases with the ribbon I bought and the cardstock I'm going to

Bridesmaids gifts! Awesome deals!
I found 2 really awesome websites:
I purchased the bridesmaids monogrammed make-up bags!
They were $4.50 and $5.96 to add personalization. So 10 bucks for a monogrammed make-up bag is a really good deal!
They also have purses, totes, cute beach bags, coozie cups, umbrellas, flipflops, mugs, jewelery....tons of things!
They have really affordable and cute make-up and make-up bags! I wanted to fill all the girls make-up bags, so I bought eye liner, shadow, nail polish, gloss ...that kinda thing. Every make-up product is $1. They have cute black/copper/silver make-up bags ($8) and wrislets ($5).
We booked the Reception Hall!!
My favorite thing about this place besides that it comes with a cake (really yummy one), good decor, big dance floor, bridal suite, and great prices....is the Chivallari (spl?) Chairs!! I love them...and they usually charge $10 a chair.
We decided on the Debonaire Banquet Hall!
Its not like the first place we had (The Foundry Art Centre) but, for the price (cutting $$) its awesome!
I bought my shoes!!
How cute are these Jessica Simpson shoes! I bought them off ebay for $22 and they are brand new!
We picked out the dresses!
I'm so excited...we finally picked out the bridesmaids dresses!
I picked the designer Alfred Angelo, and the color grape. I let my girls pick whatever short style they want!
We moved the wedding up 6 months!!
I'm so excited we moved up the wedding. We are making it smaller and less extravagent...but I still get a wedding that I want!
Booked the church---- check!
