It will match the stems and look natural but still stand out against a white shirt or khaki suit (not sure what the guys are wearing). That's just my two pesos!
    Thanks, it sounds way more organized than it is HAHA
    Teal and sand are our wedding colors but i went with the fuschia flowers because I didnt want teal or sand as the flower colors :) LOL FI doesnt want to wear PINK he says :) Forgot to mention that the guys will most likely be wearing linen pants and a shirt and linen suit for the FI with a teal tie and fedoras? So thats where i am taking teal from? I wanted green but he didnt like it for some reason? So we took green out of the bouquets :)

        I have an update as well...my invitations should be arriving on Monday-I am so excited for them-the company that did them said that they came out so good they were going to feature them on their website!
        I did my raffia fans a few weeks ago.
        Question for the ladies who did the luggage tags-how did you do them? How did you create the card for it? I really want to do them but I am totally clueless

          I actually re did mine from when I posted them a while ago. I didn't like how they turned out the first time and thought I could do better.

          What I did was bought blank business cards, made up the front and back on Publisher, then printed and laminated them. Cut them out, used a heart shaped hole punch to slip the plastic through and they turned out great!

          I did however type all my guests information in before I laminated them. Or your guest could always use a sharpie and write over the plastic. They turned out alot harder then in the plastic sleeves.

          One day I'll get around to posting the picutres

            I have a little update too! My dress came in!!! I think I'm going to see it this weekend. Saks will hold onto it for me until I'm finished with fittings. I should also have my invites next week.

            Luggage tags: My mom has a laminating machine and she is going to make them for me. You can also use vista print. Go to the DIY forum and search luggage tags. There are many, many expamples, directions, templates, etc.

                  You are not looking forward to your wedding or just the planning of it?
                  Well, if you left now you could have a really nice nudist wedding...your make up would look great!!
