Budgeting for Flowers

We've nixed the carnations and are going with gerber daisies. They're still fairly inexpensive and I love the look of them. I'm not sure if I'm going to DIY or use a florist. I think I'll set up an appointment sometime in the next month and see what a florist would charge for my bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, the corsages & boutonnieres and maybe try DIY centerpieces. Lovin' these looks:

If these are your arrangements, please let me know and I will give you credit.

Let Them Eat Cake!

I think we've narrowed down our inspiration cake to this one. It will be ivory buttercream with red gerber daisies and have an additional layer with the stucco look. Isn't it pretty?! Now I just need to make an appointment with the cake lady. I'm pretty sure we're going to use McIntosh Bakery as I've heard her cakes are scrumptious.

My First Completed DIY Project

I created cards to put on the tables at the reception with instructions on how our guests can upload their digital photos to our flickr wedding album. I am really hoping it works! Here are the cards I made:
I just ordered these babies through Vistaprint. Sometimes it can take awhile to get your pro photos back – hopefully this will make the wait a little easier!

It feels so good to have something done... :)

I ordered my dress!

And Emma's dress! Saturday was a blast. I signed up for all kinds of giveaways at the Bridal Expo, got a great massage, and Emma & I got measured for our dresses and ordered them. They should be in by April!
