Here are a few highlights, without giving too much away...
The VowsCorey and I took a lot of time writing our entire ceremony from start to finish, carefully molding the script to make it our own. We made sure the language was "us" and that it captured the playfulness but honored the sincerity of our love. We also added in a few wrinkles that I am very excited about :)
We recently received a sample centerpiece from our florist, and it made me SO excited to see the whole place decorated with the beautiful arrangements I've selected. My favorite flowers, lillies, will be the central flower of the fun, fresh bouquets and centerpieces. I can't wait to see how all the beautiful white and yellow flowers complement the navy blue bridesmaid dresses.
The Cupcake Stand
My Uncle Craig is such a skilled craftsman. He built us a beautiful cupcake stand from scratch after I complained to him how expensive it was to rent one for the night. I will dress it up with ribbon and fill it with cupcakes and flowers on the big day. Didn't he do a great job? I think he should start his own line of cupcake stands... and he just might!
This is what I see when I close my eyes and day dream about our honeymoon. At first we set our sites on Bora Bora, which turned out to be a bit out of our price range. Then we thought it would be St. Lucia. Turns out the beginning of September is the peak of hurricane season and the height of rainy season in the caribbean. I can't imagine rain and storms on my honeymoon, so we decided to play it safe and go where we know it will be warm... Cancun! We are staying at a brand new all-inclusive resort. I have been dreaming about this vacation for sooooo long. I can't WAIT for a week of food, relaxation, and fun with my new husband :)
Here's a quick list of projects done and received in the mail: personalized runner, bridesmaids/groomsmen gifts, guest sign-in book (that I'm in love with!), bride & groom bobbleheads, shot glass favors, cupcake stand topper, money box, and thank you cards.
There's so much we've done, but we still have a little bit of work to do...
