Wedding Hair Style
More classic / romantic updos
Because I'll change my mind all the way up until Sep.25!

All I know for sure is I want a big white flower.

Wedding Hair Style
and veils
Lately I've been looking at a lot of photographer sites and site like http://greenweddingshoes.blogspot.com. They're great for seeing whole "looks" put together, which is really helpful for veil + dress combos. Right now I love the cathedral veil - plain, soft and flowy, draped over the ruffly hem of my dress.

Also looking at hair ideas again - I'll have to wait until Sep 6 for my trial but for now I'm still not sure if updos work on me.

Blah....it feels like I've been looking at too many ideas for too long and that I've been planning this wedding for years haha... I just want it to be closer to the day when it's time to make a real decision!!

Bridesmaids
The Dresses!
Here are some pics of one of the BM's in the dress. Still trying to decide what accessories to do.

1. Like pearls because they dress it up and tie it in to my ivory dress, but still not sure if they go.

2. Loved the idea of a dramatic vintage hair accessory too, but don't want to get too costumey and don't want accessory overload if combined with earrings and necklace.

3. Chandelier earrings with a simpler necklace, or simple stud earrings with a statement necklace?

Time to start looking for ideas!

I think I'm leaning towards something softer - would prefer to have my hair pulled back at the front, cuz it will make the dress pop more...but I'm still scared of a full on updo.

Wedding Cake
Got this too!
A bit on the simple/traditional side, but I absolutely love it! To me it looks a bit vintage, with the rounded edges and piping and ivory sugar roses on top.

Mine will look pretty much identical to this, except no flowers on the bottom tier (which I like better AND saves $100!).

Top tier - chocolate baci
Middle tier - cafe latte
Bottom - vanilla and fresh strawberries

Also getting a separate sheet cake in chocolate baci, since this cake only serves 90.

Always thought wedding cakes were more for looks than taste, but this place actually makes them taste soo good! And they are 100% nut free and lactose free (which comes in handy for bb and most of the Asian guests :P)

The vanilla strawberry was my favourite, but since we wanted to do the whole freeze-top-tier-for-anniversary thing, the girl recommended we get something without fresh fruit.

Another thing to scratch off the list!!

Wedding Decoration
Decor & Flowers booked!
We went with a company we met at a wedding show, so we were able to get their show special on a backdrop/cake table/head table decor package. The backdrop will be similar to pic #4, with the black accents and spotlighting. The tables will also be similar to pic #4, with black satin runners. Votive candles in glass vases, 3 for $10 per table (did the cost comparable if we provided our own, but to save $40 decided to go with them instead).

We are getting the centerpieces similar to the ones in pic #1, with the white hydrangea and curly willow, minus the orchids on the willow. To save money, we will alternate these centerpieces with the shorter square hydrangea centerpieces. Not only does this save us about $20 per table, I think it will be much more interesting to not have all the tables the same. :)

Best part about the tall centerpieces is we will be able to use them for the ceremony too. They will line the aisle on both sides, and we'll have a white runner as well.

Also decided to go with the florist they work with for bouquets and boutonnieres. Ivory roses and white hydrangea bouquets for the girls, and ivory roses for the guys, with the groom getting the one in pic #3. A bit of a risk here since I didn't even see a mock-up or pictures...just going by description haha...so I'm trusting the decor people to make sure it looks good :P

But that's how a lot of the planning is becoming...being more "easy" about it...you really have to let go a bit, and not try to go around calling/comparing every vendor in town. If it fits your budget and you love it, just gotta book it...I've spent enough hours trolling thru wedsite galleries and I'm happy with this. Yes, you will always see more ideas you like but idea-overload only helps if you're planning 5 different weddings :) So glad this is taken care of now!

Honeymoon
TURKS & CAICOS Nov.13 - Nov.20!
I'm so excited! Just booked at The Veranda in Turks & Caicos!

A little nervous, since it's a brand new resort (opened Feb.1, 2010) and there's not a ton of info/reviews available...one thing I'm banking on is that they want to make a good name for themselves so they may be willing to go the extra for people the first year...and hopefully upgrade me to an oceanview room (please please please, it's not high season so may be possible :)

I recently became addicted to tripadvisor / expedia / luxury travel blogs, crossreferencing them with each other and going mad. There are soooo many variables when planning a honeymoon (is it hurricane season? do I want to go right after the wedding or wait? all inclusive? will we get bored on the beach for 7 days?)

Finally we decided on this...all inclusive so we don't have to worry...amazing Grace Bay Beach...just relax and listen to the water...beachside dining at sunset...is it November yet??

Inspiration Board
The latest...and my fave so far.
Had a consultation with a decorator today and got inspired by all the decor talk...she's going to send me some "mock up" pictures based on the things we talked about. I may send her this to help her with the vision since I found it hard for me to describe what I like.

Wedding Flowers
Boutonnieres
Brides always seem to go crazy over flowers for bouquets, centrepieces etc. but it never seems anyone care about the guys lol...it's a small detail so I can see why, but for some reason when I saw this I really liked it.

Can't really tell what flower it is..maybe a rose? I enjoy the misc. twig detail, I think it makes it modern and a bit more manly as possible for a guy wearing a flower haha Nice contrast with the flower and the suit too.

I haven't seen a florist yet but I've heard that boutonnieres can cost anywhere from $5 each to $50 each. Anyone else think $50 for a flower on a pin is nuts?

Anywho...tomorrow I'm seeing a reception decorator, maybe a florist, and maybe the Ritche super sale for veils/accessories...who can resist 80% off?! Hopefully I don't come out with a second wedding dress :P
