I haven't seen the silk mock up of the flowers but I'm sure it will look gorgeous. I wasn't at all sure of what I wanted when I showed up to the florist... all that I knew was that our colours were purple and orange and my favourite flower was a calla lily. You'll have to stay tuned for another couple of months to catch a glimpse of the actual flowers.
So far all we've had to rent is the napkins. I've got some purple ones ready and waiting!
Yes, we are giving out favours and in my opinion they are pretty great. I REALLY hope people take them!
My goal was to have most of our wedding stuff done over the summer (it helps that I have a pool and friends that want to use it... they just have to commit to helping me with some wedding stuff afterwards!). I have about 150 circles to cut our of cardboard (for our favours) that I'm aiming to get done before September starts... I'm sure there are still plenty of nice pool days left though!
So a while ago our photographer took us to get our pictures taken so that we could use one of them for our invites... it was a hard choice because she gave us so many beautiful pictures... here are 5 that we wanted to choose but in the end didn't.
We took all our photos at a local park (it's actually where to got engaged) on 2 different days (day number one was sort of rainy but day number 2 was definitely rainy!)
This one was John's favourite for our invites.
I don't know what it is about this one... I just love the pop of blue from the umbrella amongst all the green
This one was taken on the first less rainy and I think it looks beautiful (this one was my first pick for our invites)
This one wasn't really an option we considered for the invites but it's a great shot of the ring!
Which is your favourite?
