    So I took a little hiatus from planning the last few months. All the big things were done ages ago, and then we bought a house, and I got distracted. Now suddenly I woke up one day last week and realized that it was 2 and a half months until the wedding, and I had left some things (like flowers!) until a little later than I had originally planned

    I had my heart set on plumeria (all white for my bouquet and all pink for the girls). However, I had never bothered to ask our WC whether they were actually in season in October in Hawaii. I finally got around to that today, at barely more than 2 months until the wedding, and it turns out that they are at the very end of their growing season by the end of September/beginning of October, and the florist says they can't do full bouquets of plumeria. I have been a pretty laid back bride to date, maybe too laid back. It never occurred to me that the flowers I loved might not even be available! This led to me being awake at 3:00am tonight (i.e right now!), WORRYING for the first time since we started planning the wedding.

    It all turned out great though, because our WC had actually written me back with suggestions for the bouquets, and I LOVE them!!! We're going to do white cymbidium orchids, white dendrodium orchids and white tuberose for my bouquet and pink plumeria, pink cymbidiums and pink ginger florets for the bridesmaids. After I looked up pics of all those flowers (ha ha), I found that I love these bouquets even more than I thought I would love all plumeria. I'm also really happy that we're still getting the colours I wanted and having all local flowers, which was really important to me. Yay!!!

    For those who are as uninformed as I am when it comes to flowers, here's pics of the flowers they're using for my bouquet:

        So pretty! My bouquet will be white orchids and plumeria ( but I had to go the faux route) The pink BM flowers are going to pop!

              Sherry:

              I agreed...your flowers will look totally awesome. Don't worry so much because everything will come together.

              Are you getting a convertible? It would look so nice after the wedding with the top down although they are $$. Convertibles are expensive but cheaper via Hotwire.com at around $45 a day.

              Totally ask for the Ivory convertible PT cruiser! I saw a wedding couple last year in Maui with the Ivory PT crusier and they looked so good in it. I must have it for the drive to Hana after my wedding!

                  Thanks for the tip! I'm definitely going to look into renting a car like that for after the wedding! I was really concerned about my hair getting all messed up in a convertible, but the ceremony is at the hotel where I'm getting ready, so I won't even have to drive there, and after the ceremony, who cares, right? I'll just get them to hairspray the heck out of it!!
