I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
Hi ladies!! I hope you all are having a great start to your week. We had a pretty productive weekend. As I said before, Philly got the limo booked for that day. We FINALLY decided on a bridesmaid dress, lol. For anyone who knows that saga, we went with the one shoulder!! I think it will compliment my MOHs dress well. And hers is long and the bridesmaids are short, I really like that. :)
We are doing silk flowers for the bouquets and bouts, we picked up a TON of flowers this weekend, in all the colors in the picture. Bright pink, light pink and white. We even found some black ones!!! I had never seen them before. I got some, but I don't know if we will use them for that, and especially not mine. We shall see. My best friend is actually doing the flowers, so I will get together with her soon and see how many more we need.
Philly and I were both off Friday and we went to rent our lattice for the ceremony. We had decided that we want the nature to be the scenery at our wedding since we are getting married at the Theatre. (pic in previous post) So we wanted something simple that wouldn't take away from that. So we are going to have a 3 panel lattice with gerber daisies tied on it and garland on the top. It will be pretty and simple and I think work perfect for what we are wanting. Really the only other decoration we are doing out there are bows on the chairs.
I also was so worried about my dress being too big. So I talked to the lady at Davids, and they are going to take a look at it Feb 7. If it is big enough to go down a size, they will exchange it for free. If its not, I will just have the alterations done. One of my bridesmaids Grandmother used to work at Davids, and she is doing the alterations.
We also did a cake testing of the flavors of cupcakes we wanted. My sister does it on the side, so she is doing them for us. We tried Baileys, snickerdoodle, chocolate, peanut butter, pink champagne, cheesecake, strawberry and cookies and creme. I'll tell you what I think we decided in another post. :)
I got all the girls wine glasses packaged and put aside in their bags. Only thing I have left to get them is their jewelry, which now that they chose a dress, I can do that!! :)
I've done a few DIY things also, I'll probably post about them later. But very happy to be getting things done!!!!! :) All in all,it was a very productive weekend!!!!!
Happy Planning, girls!!! :)
