My FI and I met our freshman year of college, and started dating in October 2005. We got engaged over the summer of 2008. It was the perfect proposal. He took me on a scavenger hunt around the college campus where we met and spent 4 years together!
We are planning an October 16, 2010 wedding . . . our 5 year dating anniversary :)
We are having an afternoon Catholic ceremony. We will be doing a receiving line after the ceremony at the church. Then our reception at a country club local to the church.

Cake & Favors
My cake will basically look like this except the ribbon will be green and the flowers won't just be orchids. We are having vanilla cake with 3 layers of filling(raspberry, lemon, raspberry).
For favors I am thinking DIY chocolate covered oreos.
For flowers I want whites and greens. Here are some pictures that I have collected of bouquets and centerpieces. I want to use hydrangeas, roses, some green dendrobium orchis (for my bouquet and his bout only), some variegated leaves, and maybe some hypericum berries.
Bouquets - My bouquet will have orchids the BMs will not
Centerpieces - The centerpieces will be made of ivory/green hydrangea, roses, leaves and maybe hypericum beries
The Boys - FI with an orchid, the boys with roses
Changing my mind about invites . . .I am liking these by Alaun of Design now! Or I might DIY. Not sure yet.
I designed them and ordered them from vistaprint. I backed them with card-stock I bought from paper&more and I added a rhinestone to the middle of each "flourish" design. I LOVE them!
All ready to go!!
I'm afraid of accidently showing FI (I already almost have 3 times eek!) so here is the only pic you will get for now...
My Earrings....Not sure about a bracelet yet....any ideas?
My headband. I LOVE it! I didn't want a headband at all, but when I tried it on, I had to have it haha
My shoes, Love them!
The girls are all wear this dress in "moss" green. Its a cross between olive green and apple green. Kinda like this except one solid color...
