Flowers Flowers

I think I found my Wedding Florist! I met with her on Saturday and really liked her ideas especially for how to incorporate Turquoise without having blue flowers . You can see some of her work here: http://www.flowersbyerin.com/.

Below are some of my orange/ tangerine flower ideas, but to be honest Erin's ideas are even better. You'll just have to wait until the wedding to see them!

Rethinking Bridesmaid Dresses

Just when I thought I had the Bridesmaid Dresses, I found dresses on Nordstrom.com that I think I like EVEN more! Mainly because I think the Pool/Aqua/Turquoise is prettier (I'm realizing there are a LOT of names for this color)

So I'm going to order these two dresses from Nordstrom and see if I like them in person:

Hopefully this my only crazy-change-my-mind-bride moment.

You Can't Always Get What you Want

I have a wedding budget of just over average for a California wedding, so you'd think that would pretty much cover all of my wedding dreams and fantasies... WRONG.

In reading wedding blogs I've also decided that I want (but cannot have due to budgetary constraints):
- Chiavari Chairs - Those gorgeous suckas rent for like $8 a chair. I'll just have to use the hotel chairs, whatever, they're nice.
- Professional Lighting - Initials on the dancefloor and lighting to make it look like a Vegas club, sigh... I think the regular ballroom lighting and candles will be fine
- A ridiculous amount of flowers - Those giant tree-like centerpieces are so pretty, but $150+ for something that dies the next day.
- Matching professional stationary for menus, place cards, etc. - I think this makes a great DIY project (I'm actually excited to do this one)
- Colored linens - You know you can buy napkins and tablecloths for just a bit more than you can rent them for? Lame. Oh well, the white comes with the venue are elegant and crisp.

Bridesmaid Dresses

I went to David's Bridal and I found a couple of pretty nice and really affordable. I think the bridesmaids will be wearing "Pool" blue dresses in one of these two styles!:
