I ordered a pair of Stuart Weitzmans.  I love the idea of colored shoes but, I can't seem to find green shoes anywhere. 

Stuart Weitzman "DeLovely."  They're pretty comfortable.  Now, how do I get the slingbacks to stay on?

Other ideas:

Vince Camuto Palmer shoe.  The perfect shade of green.  Unfortunately, I can't find them anywhere.

Nine West Green Jojus - these are from last year.  I can't find them anywhere either.  Anyone have 7.5 they'd like to sell me?

Christian Louboutin "Rosazissimo" - gorgeous on or off!  4" heels and the $700+ pricetag...

We are planning on going to the Greek Islands and Rome for our honeymoon.  It's a once in a lifetime chance for us to go there so we're very excited!

As of now, we're booked at the Anastasis Apartments in Santorini for the Greek leg of the trip.  The fiance is doing most of the honeymoon work so more to come.  :)

After much much much color changing, flower changing, and more color changing, i've come to the realization that I like green, particularly lime green/citron.  But since I already picked out the bm dresses in a purple/grape color, I need a color to bridge the gap between green and purple.  So I'm add a little bit of pink in the mix to make the colors flow.

So here are a few inspiration pics for our centerpieces.  I hope to do two alternating arrangements: 

Some will be square vases (alternating heights) each displaying a distinctive flower: green cymbidums, pink or white peonies, white sweet peas, roses, and other fillers.  Some centerpieces will display submerged cymbidums intermixed with these vases.
