We are doing a circular seating for the ceremony. We are not having ceiling drapery and all the pipe and drape that is in the surrounds the room. But this is the overall inspiration for the ceremony. At the moment our ceremony is all white.
This is the inspiration for the reception set-up. Our venue doesn't have chivari chairs so of course since I am the chair cover lady we will be covering both ceremony and reception.

I like that they have our initials and I am contemplating getting our wedding date etched on the "W" vase. I purchased these for $20 bucks! I want our mothers to put the sand in the vases.
Here are the fans that I purchased and some peacocks I'm playing around with.
At this stage in the game I know that I'm going to paint the fans but I haven't decided on a color yet or if it will I do multiple colors. I plan to wrap the handle with some fabric or ribbon. I really wanted them to be larger but I think they are going to work with a little tweaking...:)
Sorry about the countertops in the background we are still doing mini renovations to our home!
These are from some of the events that we did this weekend. Business is picking up but it's prime wedding season.
Nothing over the top..but in my opinion chair covers can really transform a room. Unless your venue comes with chivari chairs or maybe garden chairs. Covers are the way to go if you want to transform a room. But that's just my opinion. I would rather have them than an over the top floral centerpiece but hey I'm not really a flower chick either :) !!!

Let me know what you think? For the bridal dress portait session I think I am going for more bronzed or copper hues for the makeup.
I am also comtemplating a mini floral pomander or something with feathers.

- Finally got the house painted: YAY!! Kitchen, bathroom, and study.
- Went shopping for house decor items... the housewarming is closely approaching.
- Made a concrete decision about the florist....I am DIYing why because we are getting UPLIGHTS (if FI approves)
- We met with our new travel agent and reviewed our options. We have decided either Punta Cana, Jamaica (Negril, Montego Bay or Ochos Rios) FI will make the final decision and book it next week!!
- Today my hand fans for the girls arrived. They are carrying fans instead of bouquets which I ordered for way less than the $50 per bouquet I was quoted. More details to come!
- The personalized hanky's also arrived today. Pics to come! These are a part of my gifts to our parents.
- I brought the inside cover for the booklet programs.
- Finally found a vendor for the BM's necklaces.
- And I have a big check that I will post later!!!

So this is what I decided on I am purchasing 2 dress for the ceremony and 1 for the reception. Why two for ceremony b/c I want 2 different styles and could not decide b/w white and ivory. I can do TTD session in one etc. So I am ordering the Ms Ivory from the internet. Yes...I am nervous about it because it's my favorite and I needed extra length added as I am 5'11 bare foot and my shoes are 4" heels. YES I purchased my shoes before the dress! I brought them like 2 weeks ago. Pics to come!
Now for the white one... well I found it on the internet and was ready to purchase it but it may not be long enough I am waiting for the sales rep to call me back to validate the length. If its too short than I will either get it made or buy it's contender from a local bridal salon.
The reception dress is the prob I found the dress I LOVED but it's too short and to get it longer like doubles the price and I am not willing to do that. So that poses a bit of a problem for me. I will figure it out.
I would love to post pics but I can't b/c FI reads this blog and he doesn't want to see anything that I will wear on that day. I couldn't even show him my shoes and that's hard to do when you share like everything with a person.
