Wedding details

Posted by Tammy

Wedding planning - even for a tiny wedding - takes a lot of time! :) It's fun though. Things are coming together! I am in process of ordering my flowers today! I am going to create the bouquets myself, so I needed to order loose flowers! I am working with a local florist to get them all picked out!

I am going to make bouquets of dark red roses with white calla lilies! Simple, hand-tied bouquets is what I have pictured! I have done the flowers for three weddings, and I know I'll do as well for my own as I did for the others!! I'll also make boutonnieres for the guys of smaller, spray roses and perhaps mini-callas.

We picked up Mike's suit and his new ring on Saturday!! His ring is great!! It is three strands of gold - one white, one rose, and one yellow that are braided together. He wants to wear it already - so he is wearing it on his right hand. I had to leave my ring behind (boo!) on Saturday so they can make a wedding band to match! I'm already used to wearing it and I miss it!!

Mike looks so handsome in his suit! He still needs to buy new dress shoes (as you can see in the photo!), and a tie!


The only thing that I still need (yes, STILL!) is red shoes! I have had no luck in my search for the perfect red shoe! I have ordered three pairs and sent all three back. I think the problem is that I do NOT wear heels. I fall down in heels. So... I have to find flats, and I'm not willing to spend $400 on them! So... Andrea and I are going shopping next Friday. It is a shoe-finding mission! My birthday is Thursday, so I'm taking Friday off and we're going to find the perfect shoes! Wish us luck!

He looks awesome Tammy! Yes, you both will need new shoes.

I know what you mean, buying flats for your wedding takes so long. I don't know how long we searched. I ended up wearing gold shoes because I couldn't find silver (I am a silver woman through and through) but gave in because my feet couldn't take any more shoe shopping. Good news is, nobody could see my feet anyway.

Thank said, I hope you find your perfect pair of red shoes!

How exciting to be planning your wedding....and to be doing your own flowers. They sound beautiful. I love calla lilies. They seem so romantic!

Mike looks very handsome in his new suit. Good luck on your shoe shopping!!
