Thanks for visiting my bio! I've recently made some of my bio pages private so if you're interested in seeing the all the details about my wedding (venue, dress, etc.) please send me a friend request! =)
Here a few non-pro pics from friends and family! Can't wait until we get the pro pics! The day was amazing, everything was perfect and everyone had a great time!
Update 2/10! Floral & Table Mock Up!
I had my new floral mock up of my low centerpieces with my new colors and it came out great! The only thing is that they weren't supposed to put ANY green in it other than the hanging amaranthus but they added green hydrangeas to see if I would like it. Well it looked nice but I still don't want any green in it so on the wedding day the centerpieces will be all shades of pink with light/dark pink roses and bright pink hydrangeas.
We also decided that my bouquet will not have any roses in it after all and will only have peonies, tulips and ranunculus!! I'm super excited!! The BMs will have roses, hydrangeas and pink orchids.
I also took my centerpiece to the linen vendor to see what the table would look like. We will have Olive/Forest green small pintuck linens on all of the tables inside the reception room (including cake, gift, candy, and sign in table). We will have Cotton Candy pink (very light!) napkins in Shantung Satin fabric on top of the gold chargers. The chairs will be gold chiavari with champagne seat covers. I love the way it looks all together!
Linens, Chairs & Charger Plates
So in my search for linens I came to realize that I wasn't really loving my original color scheme as much as I thought. It was hard to find linens that would look right and go well with the color in the reception venue (pale yellow walls). After visiting many places and not really finding anything that stood out to me, I went to Fusion Linens in the OC and came across these gorgeous olive/forest green mini pintuck linens. I decided that they looked so great with the gold chiavari chairs that I would change my color scheme to work around them. So my new color idea is this... the olive/forest green linens, light pink napkins, gold chiavari chairs, pink bridesmaid dresses and all pink florals in various shades. I think it will look lovely in the pale yellow reception room!!
Since we changed our colors (originally pink/fuschia, orange, apple green) we will have a new floral mock up of our centerpieces. We will still have half manzanita tree and half low urn centerpieces but all of the flowers will be various shades of pink (hot pink/light pink/etc.) I love love love pink! I know I definitely want tulips, roses, peonies, ranunculus and probably some pink hydrangeas in the centerpieces for filler, plus anything else the florist thinks would look good. These are some flower ideas I love...
For my bouquet, I love love love this first one! But definitely without the orange tulips and roses, pink tulips would be great since tulips are my fave! I know I definitely want pink tulips, peonies, roses and maybe ranunculus!!
FIRST MOCK UP! This is my floral mock up of my tall manzanita centerpieces... I really like it except that it needs more pink flowers and less green! And my low centerpieces will be in dark brown urns (matching the manzanita branch color) and will have the same type of flowers.
***Edit*** Will post new pics when I have my new floral mockup with my new colors! But they will be pretty similar just without any green or orange!
My sis/MOH bought us our toasting glasses and cake serving set. They're called Jubliee by Lenox and they are so pretty in person!! They have pearls inside the stems and handles. I love them!
We will be using a birdcage for our cards. I fell in love the with one from Target but they discontinued it. Luckily I was able to buy it from a fellow PW bride! I haven't decorated it yet but I will probably use some ribbon and flower petals.
I know these might be kind of played out but my FI is a huge candy addict and he definitely wants a candy buffet. It should be fun though cause no one that we know has done one yet. These are some ideas:
But ever since we ever started talking about weddings, he has wanted to have these Tea Forte silken tea infusers as favors because he loves the little leaf on the top (we love nature and we're having a garden wedding). Plus, he is half English and half Armenian and both sides of his family are daily tea drinkers, including him, and they LOVE tea!
Personally, I don't really care much about the favors so I'm leaning toward whatever he decides. Maybe we could use the tea sachets as escort cards by attaching a tag to the string. We'll see...
I'm already so excited for our honeymoon! We will be going to Kauai for 10 days thanks to my awesome mom who is sending us as her gift! We originally wanted to go somewhere different (since I've been to Kauai and all of the other islands) but somehow we ended up deciding on Kauai since FI hasn't been there. It doesn't really matter though because I love love love it there. It's my favorite island. I'm also hoping that we can have a TTD pics or Mr. & Mrs. shoot while we're there. It would make for amazing pics!
