Ekk I forgot to update last night!!! So here's what has happened in the last week!!!

Flowers: Some of you may know...but some will not....I've decided to CHANGE THE FLOWERSSSSSSS!!!!!!! We have however decided on our florist!!! Her name is Amy Koo and she is the owner of Along Came Amy (http://www.alongcameamy.com). I've attached some pictures of the new ideas (but I don't have a picture of the bridesmaid bouquet to send just now...I'll find one later and send it). We are meeting up with Amy this coming Saturday to pay the deposit so we can secure her for our wedding date and to also discuss new details of me new flowers!!!


Other Consultations: We've had about 3 invitation consultations already...but we're finding that if we hire someone to MAKE the invites it's SOOOO expensive!!! I found a store a few weeks ago called Wedding Things that is in Yaletown and Ed and I peeked into it once. They have a huge wall FULL of binders of invitations. When we had looked through we liked a few of them and the prices are like HALF of the ones that are made by individual companies. I think we're just going to spend some more time at the store over the next couple of weeks and browse through each invitation and I'm sure we'll find one we like!!

Wedding Show: Ed and I went to the Vancouver Wedding Show yesterday!!! They didn't have limos there like last time so we were pretty sad about it. We did however choose the compay we will be renting tuxs with.......Black & Lee Tuxedo!!!!! They gave us a Wedding Show discount where we get $30 off all rentals and the groom gets his rental for FREE!!!! This includes the ENTIRE outfit from the tie all the way down to the shoes!!!

People In Charge Of Things: I've put a few people in charge of a few things already........Mendelssohn will be in charge of all A/V and music stuff on the day of the wedding...this includes making sure things are set up right and he will also be in charge of the song and putting together practices for the guys who will be singing when I walk down the aisle!!!!.........Laura and Jenjen (I know I haven't asked you yet Jen but I will....) are in charge of stationary stuffs. This includes name tags for the picture frame party favours, menus for each table, and drink tickets for guests. I think we will wait til Christmas break to start really working on this stuff but I just wanted to give people heads up!!!!!
