I may just order one to see what they look like, but I was just wondering what you guys thought? Do you think it will look tacky?
Also, I chose to have the live saxophone player for the ceremony. I was wondering what you guys are doing RE: music for the ceremony? I was thinking of providing the saxophone player music sheets of the music I would like him to play, so he doesn't just player whatever he wants. Kenny G is one of my favorite saxophone players I may print his music and give it to the musician. What song are you planning on walking down the aisle to? Maybe the traditional "Here comes the bride" song? Or will you have a different song play? Decisions decisions...
I am using realtouch flowers for my bouquet and my 5 bridesmaids. Check out http://www.bloombridal.com/ They do an amazing job! A little more expensive then your silk flowers but still much cheaper then what the resort charges. I persoanlly like the idea that i get to keep my bouquet forever! How special! I think ordering a sample is a good idea! So you know what you are getting!
As for the ceremony music, i am just going to bring songs on my ipod (actually they make you out them on a cd for the ceremony) Bringing your own music is a good idea, but you would probably want to make sure the saxophone player is familar with the songs. It could be diaster if he/she is attempting a new song for your wedding. Just something to think about! Let us know what you decide
