We are going for an elegant "love bird" theme, with a dash of tropical delight.  The following is my inspiration.  The main color is Tiffany blue, follwed by black, and white.

Reception Location is Memory Gardens: This is a great semi-outdoor location. It is owned by California State Parks and located right on Fisherman's Wharf with a beautiful scenery. The gardens are full of flowers and greenery. It has a large fountain in the center with four cypress trees around it. The trees have lights strung in them year-round and accent lights around all the stone walls. It's truly a charming location.

Since I have so many friends scattered all over this country, we are having two bridal showers.  One in Arizona and the other one here at a Museum in Bakersfield.  Most of my fiance's family lives in Bakersfield and mine in AZ.  Sooo...after having talked with my MOH we came up with a fun theme for the one in Bakersfield.....The Mad Hatter Tea Party!  I simply love the idea and found photos on Project Wedding and other websites!

I tried to make our own invitations...I think they are cute, but I know I can do better!

The big bridal shower will be in Bakersfield at the Guild House.  All proceeds will go towards helping children with emotional problems...great cause! The menu will be seasonal fruit, quiche lorraine, gourmet potatoes, variety of breads, salads, tea & coffee..

My fiance and I met two years ago in Arizona during a training event.  We quickly grew very close and talked over the following few months.  Within a few months we got hired for the same job and moved to the same city together.  Throughout the following months we fell deeply in love.  Once we ended our contract after a year and a half, he proposed to me May 23rd, 2009 right after a Sky dive in Las Vegas!  We decided the most optimal date for our wedding would be November 7th, 2009, leaving me only five months to plan the wedding of our dreams!

Soooo...Please let me know if you have any suggestions.  We are getting married on the beach in Carmel and our reception will be at the Memory Gardens in Monterey, Ca.
