In wedding planning news: I recieved my bridal shower invite in the mail the other day. I took pics but my camera is dead right now so I will post them later. It appears to be a old school hip hop themed lounge bridal shower. They have a weekend event planned. The bachleorette party is Friday night and the bridal shower is Saturday evening. Then I have a relaxation weekend somewhere with just my ManOH a week before the wedding. I am a tid bit confused but I going with the plans....HM will be paid off on Friday. YAY!!! The girls dresses are completed and ready to be picked up for the seamstress and I LOVE them.

I plan on using these on the estate table which is all white at this point but I may add in some black. I am not sure as of yet!
This is the linens for the guest seating. Sorry for the wrinkles. The green satin did not photograph well. But you get the overall idea! I am attempting to create a peacock feather with the linens!

For this particular client we only provided the chair covers and sashes.
We provided chair covers and sashes only.
If you noticed this is the same venue that will host my ceremony and reception. We provided the chair cover and sashes for this reception. It was huge... This is just 1 side of the ballroom.
I took this pic with my blackberry. Sorry about the poor quality.
As you can see Lilac or lavender is a popular color here in my area. We provided the centerpieces and chair covers.
We provided the tablecloths, runners, and chair covers. The picture below this is where the ceremony took place. The grounds are gorgeous the pic really doesn't do it justice. We lined the aisle with organza sashes. I think satin sashes would have looked better but what the bride wants she gets! :0)

Here is the wood wall with amber lighting. Which looks pretty good but I would like green/blue lighting in this room.
Here is the blue/green wall with the flash off but it really isn't this bright in the physical so the questions becomes what should we do to fix this problem.
I have suggested 2 options with the company and I interested to see what options and ideas that they have to offer.
Today we finally went to file for our passports. First, we went to the local Walgreen's where we took the photos. Armed with our photos and other pertinent documents we headed to the post office well when we arrived I realized that I had forgotten to make photocopies of the back of our licenses. Well that was cool because they provide the for .25 well I fill out the paperwork and the guy informs me that I need my actual birth certificate not a copy so at this point I am a little annoyed because I called before we went and FI had to go get his long form on yesterday. So anyway we go ahead and process his information.
Well we proceed to go to post office #2 but before then we go pick up my long form of the birth certificate and run to post office #2 where the guy at the desk is being an a$$. So while waiting in line I realize that I don't have the back of my license copied and this post office doesn't offer the service so FI has to run and get a copy while I wait in line. The guy at the desk is like you have 2 mins left and FI turns the corner. What a day!!!
The moral of this story is when the guy at post office #1 asked me to make a copy I should have said yes instead of pouting like a child because I was disappointed I had to go somewhere else. And no matter how prepared you think you are things just come up!!!! You got to roll with the flow. I hope I am able to do this on wedding day if something happens to happen.
Jamaica here we come!

We got all the guys bow ties made from the same material as the girls dresses. They are wearing sweater vests and suits instead of a traditional tux.
The girls dress hangers.
Here is our memory candle.
As of now I am not going to add any ribbons to get just because I like the simplicity of it.
A friend of mine was shopping at Big Lots and ran across this photo cake toppers for $2.00 and when I saw them I immediately knew that I would use them for table numbers. They have the pics in the front and back. We are showing our slideshow at the rehearsal dinner rather than the wedding so I thought this was a nice way to show some of the pics that the guests will not get to see.
Remember when I posted these:
I spray painted them copper, added some peacock feathers and wrapped it with a satin ribbon.
Fans-$15.00 with shipping
Feathers- 2 for $5
Spray Paint- $5.00
Total $31 for 5 ~a little of $6.00 ea not bad at all.

This is the draft for the trivia napkins that we ordered for cocktail hour. We are using a variety using black and purple napkins with different ink colors for each question. I used Etsy seller The paper hat. We only ordered 100 napkins with 6 trivia questions.
