Okay here we go...
Paper for invites arrived
Invites started...SO much stuff to put together. Pocket fold, mat, invite, RSVP, RSVP envelope, Address RSVP envelope, direction card, monogram background, monogram paper....it’s INSANE. But I have got it started now. Will take some pics when I have printed out the inserts. SO excited.
Shoes- ARRIVED today
Hair piece – ARRIVED today
Picking up vases and lights for centerpieces next week.
Going to look at dresses with my lovely girls on Saturday...
I will be making my own centrepieces and am very excited about it. A little nervous but more excited lol
I have bought silk fuschia flowers from www.afloral.com (amazing by the way). I found these pics on weddingbee and fell in love with it.
I will be putting the vase on a mirror plate and will also have an LED light base under each one. Should look beautiful and create a nice ambiance. I will also have green glass beads at the bottom rather than black ones.
Im hoping to get started within the next 2 weeks. Just waiting for the vases. Im still seeking a deal ;)
Wish me luck ♥
****UPDATE**** I have actually decided to go a COMPLETELY different way with the centerpieces. As much as I truly love these ones they ended up not being the exact vision I had one i put it all together. Will put our actual ones up soon ♥ The ones i did are really similar but not exact....
My amazing friend is making our wedding cake and it will be fit for a princess. Im so excited to see the finished product. She is going to make the cake in our fuschia so when we cut into it, it will be awesome. She has already told me that i have to help make thousands of royal icing flowers with her. oh well, will be a labour of love ♥
***UPDATE*** well that never happened lol.... we decided to go the cupcake route for transportation purposes as well as no cake cutting fees. I LOVED them and they were made by the same friend who was going to make the cake above. Added bonus was that she enjoyed making the cupcakes rather than stressing out over the cake.
Also the cake topper was a gift from my sister in Scotland who wasn’t able to attend, so it was GREAT having something to represent her so prominent on display AND I collect these bears so its added to my collection...YEAH!!!!
Time to tell you a little bit about our venue.
I had originally wanted to have the wedding in front of my house. I live in a lovely cul-de-sac with a huge green space in the middle. My parents moved away a couple of years ago and my fiancé and I bought there house. So it’s the house I grew up in. I’ve known the neighbors since I was 9 years old and it seemed just perfect. That is until the city told me I had to invite ½ the town to the wedding as I couldn’t have a private event on public property and I had to create a “street party” environment. Not so much. So there went that idea.
I then decided to do it at a hotel. Pretty location, garden for the ceremony everything in one location lie I wanted. Perfect. I’m very happy with the place that we chose but I became even happier yesterday when I received a call from the event coordinator. She informed me that the hotel had just been bough out by the Sheraton and there are HUGE renovations being done on the hotel effective immediately but 100% completion by mid May (plenty of time before July 30th…), the gardens are being redone with ponds and waterfalls, an arch way filled with flowers for when I walk down the aisle, new ball rooms, a full spa, etc etc etc and since I already signed my contract…no new billing at pretty much double the cost!!!! SCORE!!!! I am ecstatic. I can’t wait to see the changes and fully benefit from it all. Woohoo!!!!
I’m still sad that I wasn’t able to have my initial venue choice but more than happy with the service I have received already and everything that is to come.
