I say "planning a wedding" as if I am actively making cost-impacting decisions, but in reality...all of our big spender decisions were made months ago (which take some of the fun and stress out of it). We already have the venue (ceremony and reception in one) and photographers. One of the big appeal factors of the venue is because they provide catering in house and also have floral and cake options on staff as well. This is all fantastic, but it gives me a lot more time to stress about the details: dress, boutonniere, programs, centerpieces, welcome table, guestbook (or guestbook alternatives), etc.
This all started because I lunched yesterday with one of my dearest (and longest) friends, Courtney and her little sister Caitlyn. Courtney is great for many reasons, but one of these reasons is because she is equally as excited about my wedding as I am. (It is hard to find friends like this, so I relish our girl and wedding talk time.) When I went to sleep last night I had visions of mason jars, blueberry pie, and vintage doilies dancing in my head. Here is a little bit of what I was dreaming about:
1) I am still obsessed with billy balls and I really think they will look fabulous with our puple, navy blue, teal color combo. Danial isn't quite on board with the billy ball boutonnieres yet. Perhaps I will just made some ahead of time and start attaching them to all of his coats, that way when the wedding is here, he will totally be used to a billy ball boutonniere. Plus...I think a boutonniere will definitely add class to his vintage Members Only jacket.
