Second up I would like to thank the lovely Gracie for this awesome award:
From what I hear this award is for blogs that have attitude and gratitude. So thanks Gracie!!
Next up, last night my future mother-in-law and I went to meet with a potential florist to discuss wedding flowers. It ended up being a 2 hour meeting and I didn't get home til 9pm. The lady was very sweet and helpful and had a TON of suggestions/ideas hence why the meeting lasted so long. My FMIL has great taste and knows a lot about flowers...you should see her garden, it's amazing...so I figured she would be a great person to take with me. It was a bit overwhelming looking at all the different types of flowers and the different colors/shades so it was nice having a second opinion.
I think we've narrowed it down to using some combination of peonies, hydrangea and roses throughout the bouquets and centerpieces in various shades of light and dark pink and white, which should go nicely with the black and white decor. It's amazing how expensive flowers are considering they die after a few days. Even with small, simple arrangements the pricing came out to be more than what I was hoping to spend. So my FMIL and I are going to continue to do some research and shop around and see what else we can find. I know that whatever we end up with will be beautiful and at least the meeting last night helped me narrow things down a bit more. Oh and the best part was when the flower lady told me that she thought I was 23 and one of her "younger brides" after I mentioned that I'm almost 30. God Bless her!
Finally, I may be having a special guest poster this week so get excited!
