Good Morning & Happy Saturday!! 🙂
We accomplished SO much yesterday with all of our wedding meetings. It was definitely worth taking the day off of work to schedule those meetings.
Walt Disney World…where dreams come true- LOL! Sorry the picture is blurry, I was trying to take it as we were driving in & my steaming HOT coffee spilled all over me. 😦 Of course I had white shorts on too- great right?! At least it wasn’t too bad!
We got all of our questions answered & feel a lot more comfortable about everything. You see the person we were working with LEFT in December from our venue. So we were freaking out for a while because they did NOT tell us who our new contact was. It took the venue about a MONTH or more to finally figure out who they were going to hire for that postition. Let’s just say it was a lot of uneasiness for us for about a month. We finally got to meet her in person (I had been emailing her for a while) & she is fantastic!! Very sweet & promised to do EVERYTHING she can to make our day perfect 😀
For the reception, I am just thinking of getting purple linens to tie around them- no chair cover, just the bow. Just because the linens are EXPENSIVE $$$$- I had NO idea how much linens are– just take a look:
Chair tie (which is what I want to get): $2.10 – EACH
Chair cover: $5.25- EACH
Table linen: $22.05 – EACH
That is just crazy expensive to me. Mind you, these are all based on approximately 120 – 130 people. (that is how many people we are expecting to be at our wedding) It is crazy how FAST things start to add up.
So, my question to you, is what would you do for those chairs picture above for the ceremony? Here are some ideas I had– (remember, my flowers are ALL sunflowers- so even though the pictures are not all with sunflowers, that is what I would use):
*Just big purple bows
These are just some of the ideas that I had…but I would LOVE to hear your imput as well. I would LIKE to be able to hand make these. My florist actually recommend even using silk flowers for these, since you really cannot tell that they are fake flowers anymore. They just make silk flowers so well now a days.
After meeting with our florist, who might I add is AWESOME & the prices are SOOOOOO fantastic that we signed up on the spot for her to be our florist! We put the deposit down as well, just to make sure she doesn’t have any one else for that weekend…since she only does ONE wedding a weekend. So we are good to go 🙂
Next up was cake tasting!! The best part, of course 😉 I even told Craig that I was going to eat a light breakfast so I could fill up on cake- lol! Gotta live it up- this only happens once in life 😀
I have the idea of the cake that I want, I just have to narrow down the design. It is going to be a 3 tier cake. Here are some ideas:
*Just instead of the hay looking stuff, I will use purple ribbon around the bottom of the tiers.
Which one is your favorite? Any tips/ ideas- let me know 🙂
Now– for the tasting- I was so surprised at how they did this. They actually made us a WHOLE cake of the 3 different flavors that I had picked out. It wasn’t different slices, but a WHOLE cake. The cake had stickers on the sides to indicate the flavors.
I selected red velvet, chocolate/ vanilla marble & vanilla cake with raspberry filling. They also let us take the cake home to sample & just told us to let us know which one we liked best & if there were others we would also like to try. They were SO nice!!
Let the tastings begin 😉
They were all really good, but our favorite was the vanilla with raspberry filling. Red velvet is my favorite cake normally, but I am in just MAJOR fear that Craig will decide to smash the piece of cake all over me…and, well, so long to my white dress. 😦 Deciding to STAY away from any red cakes- I’m even gambling with getting a raspberry filling- haha 😀
Let’s just say we had a GREAT day off!! 😀 I spent the rest of the afternoon with my friend Cori- just having a girls afternoon. It was a lot of fun & much needed girl time 🙂
Well, now I’m off to hit the gym! It is MUCH needed after all of that sugar yesterday!! Then it looks like we will be laying out to get some sun – the weather is so nice. I hope you enjoy your day too 🙂
