      Ok also just realized I used "dude" in my last post. So sorry... It's a very VA/east coast thing to say and looks and sounds ridiculous lol ..

      I always thought that was a west coast thing. lol I am from california and find myself saying that a lot too :)

       

      You are right, orchids are not cheap, but I am only getting married one time and I envision orchids EVERYWHERE! lol  My color palate is based on two of my favorite types of orchids:

       

      The orange cymbidium orchid

       

       

      Purple Dendrobium orchids:

                what's a wedding social?  Like is that the Canadian equivalent to an engagement party?

                  I was also inspired by my favorite flower - Green Cymbidium Orchid - hence my color scheme of chartreuse and sangria.

                    No not really. Most people find it kinda of tacky but its a manitoba tradition and if you dont have one people go crazy asking why you dont have one. But heres the basics... You rent a hall usually for 300-600 people (depending on the size of your family and how many people you think you can get to attend) you get a liquor permit adn alcohol enought for the amount of people you expect to attend. Then usually close friends and family and business donate prizes for a silent auction. Then you sell tickets usually $10 a ticket to friends and family and everyone you know, and they sell to everyone they know.. till you sell as many tickets as your hall holds. It like a fundraiser to celebrate the couple getting married. Like i said most people find it tacky.. but where im from theres socials practiacally every weekend and sometimes they are not just for weddings... i have been to socials for everything from fundraisers for pet shelters... lawyers fees... even to help to guys backpack europe! lol. Really its just a good excuse to party... drinks are cheap $2.50 or $3.00 (cheaper than any bar) theres free food and prizes to be won.
