Hey guys! Sorry it’s been so long. As you can imagine things have been CRAZY the last few weeks. Once we realised we were closing in on the 1 month mark we got our butts in gear. I’m a procrastinator and can’t make decisions so that has left a lot of things to the last minute.[...]
Well not only did I survive our Stag & Doe, I survived a surprise bridal shower as well! It was definitely a crazy weekend! Our Stag & Doe was super successful and I can’t thank our bridal party enough who did an awesome job of helping out (that’s what they’re there for, right?). It would [...]
We’re almost 2 months away from the big day! I’ve realised that when you hit the 2 month mark things get A LOT crazier and stressful. The to do lists get longer (endless actually!) and all the plans seem to go wrong. Most of our vendors seem to be going on a vacation up to the day of our wedding (ah!) and people seem to be making this wedding a lot more complicated than it is. I’ve come to realise that I can’t plan everything…I can’t dot all the I’s or cross all the T’s, and other people have to realise that too. We want a party, not a wedding so everything doesn’t have to be just so. It’s not the Royal Wedding for crying out loud! That being said, there a many people who have helped out tremendously and I wouldn’t be as calm as I am without them.
A couple of weeks ago we did one of the most colourful weddings we’ve ever done. The bridesmaid’s dresses were different shades of purple, ranging from lilac to eggplant, and the 2 maids of honour wore black. The bride really wanted the bouquets to stand out and be a tropical assortment of colours. I wasn’t quite sure how the colours she chose would work but as soon as I started putting together the bouquets, I fell in love! We got in the most stunning colour of purple hydrangeas I’ve ever seen that really popped against the orange flowers she chose. The flowers themselves went together really well also, making perfectly-shaped bouquets. I won’t keep you waiting any longer, so here’s what her bouquet looked like…
Last week, a friend contacted me to send flowers for him to the funeral of his friend’s grandmother. He then got back to me saying that the obituary announced ‘in lieu of flowers donations may be made to…’ so he wasn’t going to send flowers anymore. Luckily I set him straight about the meaning of the phrase and we sent along a beautiful arrangement.
