Preparing….

All women love flowers, don’t they?  Flowers make me smile. The smell and the bold and beautiful colors seem to make me happy. Well, most of you know that my little sister got engaged a few months back. We planned her engagement party with success and now we move on the wedding. And when I say ‘we,’ I mean that I have volunteered to help her as much as possible. Having planned my entire wedding, I think I have some good advice to offer…lol.


We started to look through some magazines and tear out some ideas of wedding centerpieces and bouquets. Then we hopped on the computer and looked for flowers online. We found some amazing ideas!!

High centerpieces, low centerpieces, candles and jewels….so many options to choose from! We were talking about even possibly doing them ourselves since flowers can be so costly. And in this economy, saving every dime you can, makes a difference! I am not sure we will take on that task though. There is a lot involved in making sure the flowers stay fresh. And I don’t know if I am ready for that responsibility….lol!


Well, I know that we have a lot to plan, little details to fuss over. But thankfully we have a year and half to figure it out!!


Have a great day!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Calli-lilies! I had roses as my flower choice, but that was only to make my mother happy.

I'm a fan of the high centerpiece, that way everyone has unobstructed views of each other. Clear votives on mirrors make a nice glow too. My venue did my centerpieces, but I ordered the candles and mirrors myself from oriental trading. I know you'll have fun doing it, as it'll be done with love :)
