Introducing our TRUE labor of love.....
This DIY project took us approximately 3 months to complete. We lightscribed 130 CD's. It took about 23 minutes to lightscribe each CD plus 5 minutes to burn the music and about 5 minutes to print, cut and assemble each front and back cover. So after all is said and done, each favor took us about 33 minutes to complete.
I ask myself:
- Would I ever do this again? Hell to the NO!
- Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! :)
We decided to carry on our color scheme through our flowers. We wanted something fresh, romantic, abundant, lush and elegant. And through that, we came to the conclusion of using the following flowers to grace us in all their beauty!

Cream Ranunculus White Ranunculus
White Peony Cream Peony
White/Cream/Ivory Assorted Roses White Hydrangeas
White Dahlia White Snapdragons
Organic Curly Willows Crystals
We are incorporating four different centerpieces throughout the guest tables. 2 highs and 2 lows.
We will be having 5 of these centerpieces. It will be one of our high arrangements presented in a glass wide lipped fluted vase filled with organic curly willows, fluffy hydrangeas, spray roses and snapdragons. There will also be crystals hanging from the branches. This arrangement will be sitting on a square bed of white rose petals.
Another 5 high arrangements will be presented in a gorgeous over sized hurricane vase adorned with a ball of full ivory roses and accented with crystals peeking out of each rose.
5 Beautiful low and lush arrangements all in white tones consisting of elegant roses and hydrangeas. Crystals will also be sporadically placed throughout the arrangement.
Last but not least, we will have 6 candle arrangements as our 2nd low centerpiece option. These tables will be overwhelmed with different heights of glass cylinders filled with miniture ivory candle pillars. All the glasses will be sitting on a lush bed of roses with spurts of fulled bloomed roses.
I got my vases for one of my high centerpieces =)
The sign in table will be presented right when you walk in the foyer. We want to incorporate our family tree here as shown. Starting in the middle a pic of FI and I (e-pic) and then on each side a pic of parents on their wedding day to include our grandparents and great grandparents. All pics will be in black and white in gold frames.
I AM DONE! *phew*
I created newsletter to keep the ladies and fella's up to date with the latest of whats going on.
HOWEVER, in this issue, I pretty much introduced the wedding party to include some fun Q&A about each person.
For TEAM GROOM, i asked:
- Favorite Sports Team
- Favorite Video Game
- Favorite food
- Spare time activity
I am going for the fun, colorful yet classy look for my engagement party.
I am getting this BCBG silk chiffon gown recreated by a seller I found off of Etsy. I'm so excited and the final product will be sent to me on May 16th! :)
And I've made an appointment with my hairstylist and a potential make up artist to beautify me. Here is my hair and make up inspiration.
