Floral Package!

Hi Friends! I just got word from my fabulous planner that our floral package has been booked. Here's what we're getting! I hope this helps someone!

Company: Greenery Productions (I think).

Inspiration bouquet from which all floral is based:

What I asked for (copy and pasted from the email to my planner)... excuse my, ahem, informal florist terminology.. :

Bride: bouquet above. I'd like for it to be full and as close to the picture as possible with maybe a bit more stephanotis. Wrapped with white ribbon.

4 bridesmaid bouquets: smaller version of my bouquet without the stephanotis or the flowers that hang down. Wrapped with aqua ribbon.

1 groom's boutineer: something to match my bouquet.

4 groomsmen boutineers: something to match my bouquet. Maybe a little less exciting/nice than the grooms?

Floral swag for arch: something to match my bouquet. More hanging down flowers, perhaps?

Aisle petals: no clue. Not crazy about the rose petals but if there is no alternative, light-ish purple rose petals.

4 wrist corsages for the mothers/grandmothers: purple. The 2 grandmother corsages should be a bit less than the 2 mother corsages.

2 father boutineers: should match the groomsmen


Quote: $1,200.20

Overall, I'm really happy with the price. Diana, our planner, also told me that she negotiated pretty hard with the florist to get that price. Just another reason why I love her!!

SO, the floral order has been placed!

Now, we have a few things left to buy, make, and the music left to decide on.. and then, we're done! I never thought I'd be done with wedding planning.

Thanks for reading along!

I'm not a huge fan of rose petals myself...did they tell you there was no alternative...I'd think there has to be some kind of alternative.

Faith, it's been way too long since I've commented! Anyway, congrats on your upcoming graduation, and being so close to the wedding - I'm so excited for you!

* The bridesmaid dresses are beautiful - though that model has some hips, especially with that pose! I'm picturing Megara wearing that dress now, lol.
* Your rehearsal dinner dress is just stunning. I love it.
* Can't wait to find out where your secret honeymoon is!
* As for the thank you sign, it might be one of those things that you end up skipping just because you don't have the time to do it. There were a few things like that for me, and I really didn't miss them at all.

I didn't speak with the florist myself-- letting the planner handle that. I'm really not crazy about the rose petals but can't think of what an alternative would be? Any ideas?

At the end of it all, I'd like something else but when the day actually rolls around I'm sure I won't even notice.

BAHA! I love the idea of Megara wearing that dress.

Thanks so much-- I can't decide which dress I'm more excited to wear. And, thanks for the advice on the thank you sign. I think we're going to skip it. We do want to make programs, welcome folders, and Max's ear hat. Honestly, I think that will be enough DIYing for me.

2 Months! DIYs and Rehearsal Invites/Plans!

2 months 2 months 2 months!!

Today is our 2 month mark! Hooray!

On Friday I mailed our invites. One of my bridesmaids and I worked on putting stamps and labels on them- it went by pretty fast and was a pretty painless process.

So, they’re off! In the mail! And it’s weeeeirrrrddd... this wedding is actually soon?! Never thought we’d ever see the day when we were this close. For the girls who are still months away, trust me, time flies by. And yeah, I know everyone says that and you feel like your time will never come but uhh, it does!

We have already heard from a few people who have received the invite. I am not looking forward to the RSVP process and hope my guests are really nice about returning a pre-stamped, pre-addressed envelope.

In other news, Max and I have reserved our rehearsal extravaganzas! A few months ago we booked Rev. Jack and my planner for a rehearsal on Dec. 21st at 6pm at our ceremony site. We figured we’d just do some type of rehearsal dinner after.

Since Max and I are paying for the dinner we wanted to have it somewhere that we liked. We came up with the idea of having it at T-REX Cafe in DTD just because it’s so fun and so “us”. I called and was told that since it will be so close to Christmas by that point, T-REX doesn't do big group reservations for dinner.

We debated having a dinner elsewhere but really had our heart set on T-REX. So, we contacted the salesperson and wound up booking T-REX on that Friday for the only time we could-- 11am. It is REALLY early but we figure it will be fun and most of our family/bridal party will be in town by that point anyways so it works out.

Here is our menu:

CHOICE OF ENTREE:
Paleozoic Chicken Sandwich with Chips
Stegosaurus Steak and Cheese Sandwich with Chips
Pteradactyl Salad
Layers of the Earth Lasagna

DESSERT:
(Served Sharing Style. Based on 1 per 4 guest)
Meteor Bites

Fountain Soda, Coffee and Tea
$21.99 Per Person Plus 18% Service Charge and 6.5% Florida Sales Tax
** Each person will receive a drink ticket good for one STRAWBERRY LEMONADE for an additional $3.99++ per person **

We are super excited! Max got silly and made us some fun invites-- here they are (I removed the phone number at the bottom-- that's why it looks funky):


We also finished some DIYs over the weekend!

Max made his Groom Ear hat!:


And, we made our UP-inspired card box!:


We are also talking with our planner about using sparklers for our exit and bought a Living Social for VistaPrint which we will use for our programs.

Thanks to those of you who are still following along!

I love the mailbox!

I've never been to T-Rex, but from what I've seen it looks like a lot of fun! And the invite is so cute!

Seriously time does really fly! I love the rehearsal lunch that is so awesome I would love to be a guest at that and what a fab price! I also like the invites he did! The RSVP nightmare can be annoying but I kept a spreadsheet and that helped a ton. The card box looks great and so does his hat! Good job girl keep plugging away

Hi, Faith! I am FINALLY all caught up and you have done such a great job so far! Your rehearsal at T-Rex sounds like it will be a blast and I love the silly invites! Oh, and your cardbox is amazing! I love everything and can't believe how close you are! The time really does fly!

Holy crap! Seeing your "Up" inspired mailbox card holder brought a tear to my eye. I love love LOVE that.

I recently went to a wedding in NY and the bride did a lot of personal touches that represent them as a couple and it was so beautiful. I know that your's will be nothing less than that too...so hurry up cause I wanna see me some pictures!

Happy 2 month mark! (LESS than 2 months now!!)
