So I finialized everything with my florist yesterday! (YAY!!! Everything is falling into place!) So My Bouquet will be:
Day Lilies Gerbera Daisies
White Roses White Alestromeria
Green Button Mums And Looped Bear Grass. YAY! I can't wait to see them.
So it is VERY important for FI and I to get some pics of us in downtown Detroit. We both love the city and go down there often, I'm going to collect other brides shots of D town here for some inspiration.

So even with no BP, we wanted to get a limo, so we could run downtown to Detroit, and get some pics, without having to worry about parking or anything. Well, in one of those ad mag's that everyone gets in the mail box, there was a deal we couldn't pass up! So, here's the sweet ride we'll be in:
I've been using this company for years (going back to Prom!) so we are getting the limo for $300/5 hours! YAY!
So following with the baseball theme, I wanted our escort cards to look like tickets. So I played around in Publisher, and this is what I came up with:
Each couple will have them in a envelope similar to the ones you get from the bank drive-thru, with their name on the front of the envelope. I envision letters on the table as well - Either "Will Call" or "Box Office". We haven't quite decided which one yet. =)
The one thing that bugs the bejeezus out of me, is when every wedding sounds the same. You hear the same songs for the cake cutting, the garter toss, etc. So I tried to personalize the list to us:
Parents Introduction: Best of My Love - Emotions
Couple Introduction: Gimme Some Lovin’ by The Spencer Davis Group
Bouquet Toss: Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend from Moulin Rouge
Garter Removal: Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins
Garter Toss: P.Y.T - Michael Jackson
Cake Cutting: 1234 by Plain White T's
So neither FI or I are the traditional classical music type. I'd rather have no music then the standard trumpet voluntary, here comes the bride, canon in d etc. Instead, I turned to some favorite movies, that have great scores, and this is the list I came up with:
Processional: Jessica’s Theme - Man From Snowy River 3:48
Any other suggestions?
