Flowers, Invitations and Engagement Pictures!!
That's a fun picture of Amy (Jimmy's sister-in-law) and me from Deb's (Jimmy's mom) wedding in May. Did you get all that?! Today I went with Deb and Amy to a place in Springfield, OH to look at flowers for the wedding bouquets. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I only knew that I really wanted to include calla lilies in the bouquets. Amy and Deb were a HUGE help in deciding what looked good together.
For those of you who don't know this already, I plan on making my bouquets with fake flowers...cheaper and they will last forever :)
I decided to use white and orange flowers. It ended up looking really good. For someone who hates this wedding planning stuff, I got pretty excited about the flowers! We put together a pretty cute bouquet idea for the bridesmaids but still arent quite sure about mine. Here is a pic of the bridesmaid bouquet idea:
I've been trying to decide what to do for invitations and realized that no one really cares how cute they are so, with advice from my friend and co-worker, Carrie, I decided that I'll probably buy an invitation kit from JoAnn fabrics and get some ribbon the color of my bridesmaid dresses and put around the invitations. I think the invites are only $30 for 50 and the ribbon is pretty cheap too. I'm looking for any way to save money!!!
Last, but certainly not least, our engagement pics are ready...YAY!!!
