Wedding Flowers
Check another item off the list
I have finally booked an appointment with a florist. I am planning on going on the 29th of this month. I have really put this off because I was waiting to try to find the right style for me. I tend to change my mind often so I felt it best to wait. Stay tuned as I will update once I have made my selections.

Finally scheduled my engagement session
I have really been putting off my photo session. I have finally crossed this off my list. I have scheduled the session for July 1st. We are planning on getting our photos taken downtown. The FH and I are huge hockey fans and plan on going to the Hockeytown cafe, Comerica Park (Tigers Baseball) is across the street which has some great photo ops there as well. Now on to the next task...

Flower girl Mini Parasol!
This has to be one of the cutest things I have ever seen! I'm considering this instead of the pomander ball for my little flower girl. I would have her name monogrammed on the parasol.

Bathroom Sign:
This is a cute little sign to go in the bathroom by the tray of toiletry items.

So happy you are here to share in our special day,
But should something happen to go astray,
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Wet wipe, hand lotion, or even aspirin,
Use only what you need and leave the rest,
It may also be useful to another guest.
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry on back and join in the fun!

Compliments of the newlyweds!

More great decor finds!
These are my great finds at my local Pier 1, Hobby Lobby and the net. I found this great crown decoration. I purchased two of these to put in the bar area. I'm planning on putting one of each of the rose ceramic tealight holders on either side. The fleur di lis finials and letters I will use on the guest book table. I am planning on having a tall centerpiece and will place the fleur di lis finials on either side and place the letters in front of the centerpiece. The picture below is my mercury glass fleur di lis vases. I will place three silk peonies in each one. These are going on the patio tables outside. I will put some sand in the bottom of the vase so they have some weight and will keep from blowing over if it happens to be windy.

Putting my monograms to use
I have decided to use three of my monograms in various ways. Reason being is that I really like all of them. So why not, they are in the same color range, why not utilize them all in some way. This is one project I am working on. It is a sign designating where guests can smoke. I will place them in the bar area on the bar and cocktail tables.

My Signature Drink
Pink Lemonade and Vodka
I really wanted to have a signature drink at the reception. Since I opted for the Standard bar vs. an upgraded package, my options were limited in terms of really great signature drinks. I knew I wanted the color to be pink so I went with a classic pink lemonade and vodka. My reception site has been gracious to go out and purchase the pink lemonade for me at no extra charge. MMM, delicious! I'm going to garnish it with a rock candy swizzle stick.

Now, what to name it....

Here are my choices:

1.) "The Dauphine"
2.) Marie Antoinette
3.) French Revolution

I'm leaning towards #1 and #3

Ladies, what are your thoughts?

I'm going for a romantic/vintage feel. Marie Antoinette meets Juicy Couture. I call it Rock N' Roll Royalty. My influences are Sophia Coppola's movie Marie Antoinette (Petite Trianon with a touch of Versaille), with an 80's new romantic music vibe.
