200 days and counting.... Wow, it's hard to believe. It's been a rough few weeks and hubby's bes...
Aqua violet bichon linen for guest tables - $16/ea to rent
iridescent purple and white pillows with black velvet floral damask to go on white modern lounge seating in tent
Ava604 from Mori Lee. Bridesmaids dresses.
Madison Collection dress- My dress!
Derrick and his guys will wear this tux but with a steel colour vest. D's tie will be black/white/grey and the guys will be black/white/magenta to match the BM's dresses (see other pic for that).
A copy of our save the date cards from the front. They were postcards.
Possibly bouquet style - orchids & peonies. Whether or not we use peonies will depend on weather/climate because normally they're only available in June but we'll see since we are expecting a cooler than average summer this year. I'm not banking on it. Can use mums, roses or hydrangea in place of peonies if need be.
Another beautiful orchid bouquet.
A white manzanita tree with white orchids and crystal garland. We will have one of these on our guest book table (or somewhere - maybe the bar, I'm not sure where it would be best used just yet).
galvanized steel planters - I like the tall ones. We can use those to place the "Hedge balls" on them if we can find them cheap enough.
Bought the 8oz (small) chinese food takeout boxes to be used at our candy buffet for late night take home treats!
I am going to order fans to place on the ceremony seats since July can be quite warm under the sun outdoors. I'm not sure yet which colour would look nicest.
MLHCeremonyPic - this is where our ceremony will take place. The arbour is covered in fabric here, but we will leave it natural and just hang the orchids from it as well as place arrangements around it as described at right.
I really like this girl's makeup.
Considering a hairstye like this. I liked it since the first time I saw this pic.
But I really like the vintage look of this kind of style too. It's so glamorous!
This is sort of what I look like with my hair half up and half down, like the chick in the pic 2 pics before this. But.... if my hair was done as nice as hers it would obviously look much better.
This is a votive style my florist was able to source for me at a decent price. I'd have to buy them rather than rent them but at least I'd know then that i could resell them after (or rent them to someone else to make some money back).
Here is another votive style. I like both.
