I have been away quite a while from the blog, but I have completed quite a few wedding tasks!

  • I booked a DJ and I will later blog about ALL the songs I do and I don’t want played. FYI..I’m anti- organized dances
  • I met with three florists (exhausting!) and decided on one-ofcourse the most expensive-but she is soo creative and we are gonna come up with some ways to save money. Later, I’ll blog about the creative ideas!
  • I met with a caterer and he is gonna get a quote to me on all of my desserts for the reception. My bridesmaid that I took with me is on Weight Watchers (as am I) and it was torture to talk about desserts for an hour!
  • I met with my wedding planner and she set me up with a baker, linen rental place, and stationers to meet with on my next visit home.

I’ve always been a little OCD with creating to do lists. I love the feeling of crossing off an item on my list. With wedding planning, it seems like the lists are never ending. The current list I’m working on is everything I need from the florists….Here’s what I got so far.

  • Bridal Bouquet
  • Tossing Bouquet
  • Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid Bouquets
  • Groom’s Boutonniere
  • Best Man and Groomsman Boutonnieres
  • Ring Bearer Boutonniere
  • Flower Girl Tossing Flowers
  • Flower Girl Flowers for Hair
  • Usher Boutonnieres
  • Program Attendent Corsages
  • Minister Boutonniere
  • Reader Corsage
  • Singer Corsage
  • Mother Corsages
  • Father Boutonnieres
  • Grandmother Corsages
  • Grandfather Boutonnieres
  • Flowers to Mark Aisles
  • Flowers to Decorate Gazebo
  • Flowers to Mark Entrance of Aisle
  • Hairpiece for Reception
  • Center Pieces
  • Loose Flowers for buffet and cake tables

Here are some great lists from Knock Knock

 

Floral Frenzy July 12, 2008

When I tell people that I want red flowers with aqua dresses they think I’m crazy. Some think the color combo is horrendous and others think that red is blan and boring. Well, I generally don’t care who likes my color combo but I can see where red is overused and can seem somewhat generic. I want something bright and vibrant like this bouquet:

      Red roses are classic but not what I would consider exciting and unique-the color is incredible though!

      I want something with more texture, loose, and with a variety of flowers-a little funky maybe.

        So pretty…and so not the right color. I don’t know anything about flowers so I don’t know if all these can come in vibrant red. This bouquet is a great combo of peonies, roses, lilies, fern, and ranunculus. So, the search continues…

          Yay! I love this one, not so sure about the white though. This bouquet consists of peonies, poppies, ranunculus, and parrot tulips.

            Hopefully, these pics are enough to show my potential florists when I meet with them in a couple of weeks.
