So after finding out that the yellow roses are the more cost effective way to go... we are going with the yellow roses.
My bouquet will be a mix of yellow and ivory roses, tied with a blue ribbon like the color of the Bridesmaid dresses.
The Bridesmaid's will carry the a smaller bouquet, with just yellow roses and a blue ribbon.
The Groomsmen will have yellow rose boutonnieres and the Moms will have ivory rose corsages (2 or 3 roses).
So we finally got the Groom's Ring!
The Groom will be wearing this tux, with a ivory tie and vest, to match the color of my dress! While the groomsmen will be wearing the same tuxes, with ties and vests in the cornflower blue vest to match the bridesmaids. The Dad's will also join in the fun, but wearing a yellow color bow ties and vests to match the flowers!
It has been quite a week, not only did receive quite a few RSVPs, my worst nightmare was we wouldn't, but we got them almost a month in advance of the wedding. We also started receiving gifts and I am overwhelmed by people's generosity! I feel like we are making some good headway, so hopefully I won't be running around like a chicken with my head cut off a few weeks before the wedding:)!
Since the ladies on Project Wedding have inspired me with all their DIY projects, I have decided to bling out my votive candles which are part of my centerpiece for the wedding. It is actually not bad after you get the ribbon as straight as I could, I added 4 rhinestones around it. Wallah, instant sparkle! I wish the pics could have come out better!
I had my first dress fitting today and it was wonderful, Janet is super sweet and has a wonderful eye for details. I have decide to go with the ballroom bustle (with the dress pulled underneath) and I am quite pleased with the way it will look. I can't wait to finalize the fittings, the dress will look truly beautiful!
