Hey girls, I have been MIA for awhile, needed a little break from the wedding planning so I had a lovely weekend with the FI rented and watched three movies and just snuggled! Probably slept too much but that's okay. So, I really need to start posting more, I find myself doing more reading than anything! I really need to bump up my membership though so I can start opening some of the links that are posted!

I know a lot of my questions are repeats but, I heard someone talking about buying "real touch flowers" for their centerpieces and bridal bouquets. Does anyone have more info on this? I did a quick google search, but didn't find a site for just real touch flowers, lots of sites that sold them. I was wondering if there was a site that people were ordering them from? Also, lomas increased their price for the fabric that they use to decorate the gazebo, the price doubled! I refused to pay 150 dollars for one piece of rented fabric! What are you girls doing for ceremony decor?

OMG you couldn't look bad if you tried! I did my own makeup too. I did not by any means do a fantastic job, but I never look at my pics and think "OMG my makeup is awful" lol. You'll do fine!!

I am buying 2 pieces of fabric, but I was quoted $75 for each piece...this was before christmas though. Some people are bringing their own fabric, however, be careful with this, because they charge you a set up fee which is around $100 dollars. They will not let you set anything up yourself, so if you bring fabric you need to give it to them and pay them to set it up.

My hairstylist is actually coming to my wedding and I asked if she minded doing my wedding hair and she's excited to do it, I got really lucky! She did my BD shoot hair which I LOVED and that hair stayed for 3 days, loved it.

Awww, thanks Nicole! This morning, waking up at what now is 4am, after tossing and turning all night, wedding nightmares and general bad sleep, I look like a zombie.

I too am buying 2 pieces of fabric and got quoted $50 each or $65 or something I think, white is cheaper I believe.

Thanks for the information. It may not be worth bringing your own. I may just ask for them to set-up a piece of white fabric from the hotel. In a perfect word, the hotel would have a wedding closet with stuff from previous brides for future brides to use. I am sure some of the stuff I am brining down I wont care about returning with and it is only going to be used once. This is my cheap and not wasting mind thinking.

Is everyone writing their own vows? My dress has come in so I am hoping I can pick up this week. The store is close to my 98 year old grandmom so I would hate to go pick it up and not visit but she goes to bed so early.

Hi Ladies! I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had a crazy Saturday night, which declared Sunday lazy couch day.

 

I did however buy some pashmina's from another BDW bride. It actually feels like I accomplished something... even if it wasn't on my list. Every little bit counts!
