Wedding Flowers

I've finally narrowed down my wedding flowers my colors are fall but I having trouble picturing what I would do for flowers.  This was funny to me since I worked at Hy-Vee floral shop all through high school and college haha.  Anyways, through some help from a couple of my bridesmaids I picked White Hydrangea and both orange and white calla lilies with some "steph" flowers as fillers.  They're great because with stephanotis you add a pearl in the middle to give it that glam factor.  To tie them all together literally I'm using raffia it's kind of like twin but a little less tough.  Now I just need to put my order in and see what the damage will be awww!  3 months and counting less then 100 days-I can't WAIT!

Wedding Invites: CHECK!

After several long days and some help from the good old Maid Of Honor (Ashley Jo Costanzo) I've finished all 200 invites!  I of course wanted to save money so I bought the kits at Target for $20 bucks for 50 and designed and printed my own at home.  I never thought it would be such a process stuffing all of them and addressing them individually.  I wanted the front to look nice, so I used a calligraphy pen and tried to use my best handwriting on each one.  However, I think towards the end of the alphabet my penmanship started to suffer.  At least they are all done and will be mailed out next week.  I can't believe the wedding is only 3 months away!!!  I'm also excited for this weekend, I'm going home to Des Moines to meet up with some of my lovely bridesmaids.  Maybe we can bang out some more wedding items over the weekend.
