    Ditto!  I feel so much more confident about DIY flowers now!  Was really nervous about that part of things and was feeling like I had to spend hundreds of dollars we can't really afford, just to ease my mind about it.  I doubt I will book an expensive florist now.

How many have we got back??? Ya um...we have 6 out of 30 sent. FML. Get on the ball people! I am about to send an email out that says "If I don't have your RSVP back in time I'm going to choose what you eat and it's not going to be what I think you like, it's going to the be the opposite....and NO booze for you!"

       

       

      Thankfully, we're pretty sure we know who is and isn't coming, but I expect I'll have to call a few friends to confirm when I don't have their RSVP card back in time.  Although, it could be a good thing that I sent our invites so late, because people may feel the pressure to go ahead and mark it one way or the other and send it back, versus thinking, "I have several months to decide, so I'll fill that out later."

       

      If I already think someone is a no and I don't hear from them, I won't bother calling, but if I expected them to say yes and don't receive a reply, I will.  Most of the undecideds are the significant others of friends; several people are considering leaving their other half at home to cut costs.  I think some of my girlfriends are flying down together and making it a girls' weekend.

        Great deal!  We have a lot of art hanging in our apartment already, so I've been wondering lately where in the world we are going to hang wedding photos.  I don't think we have a single wall with enough space to accommodate something like that.  Will have to think about rearranging some things... I don't want to take down any of my beloved artwork!

          Feeling really jazzed up about wedding stuff today!  I've been e-mailing our reception venue about lighting, and to my delight, they've made some drastic changes recently that greatly improve the look of the place.  I no longer think we need to worry about bringing in colored lighting; it's gorgeous the way it is!

           

          Old look:

           

           

           

           

           

           

          New look:

           

           

           

           

          I can't even tell you guys how excited I am about this!  I was really starting to worry I wouldn't love our venue, despite having chosen it for great reasons (super helpful staff, delicious food), but now I'm convinced it's going to be amazing!  It's crazy how much a few lights can change your opinion of a place.  I am in love with they've done with that wall!  Seeing the new chairs there also tells me I don't need to bother with any chair decor for the reception.  When I saw these photos, I assumed an event company had taken over the place for one wedding, but when I asked how much this would cost, they assured me this is how the restaurant looks nice, the decor is theirs, and I will pay nothing for this look.  I'm ecstatic!!

            Meant to say this is how the restaurant looks now, not how the restaurant looks nice (although it certainly does!).

                  Since we've all been discussing music lately, Amazon has 3 free albums up for valentine's day.   I've downloaded all 3 of them and there's some good stuff in here.

                    Does anyone have a timeline for the reception? IE when to cut the cake, each dance, speeches, etc.?

                      I don't have a timeline but I realized after my brother's wedding last weekend in Vegas, do speeches before or right after dinner! The less booze consumed, the better lol.
