@perianjay Thanks! Yes, I ordered them online from Bloom Bridal. Do you think the bouquet will look out of place looking slightly purple with everything else blue? I really like the colour too and hope it will look ok. 

 

I ended up not ordering boutonnieres. I got the name from Lily's planning thread and in her review she was saying how she got all the groomsmen boutonnieres but they thought they looked weird so they didn't wear them. After reading that I thought our guys might do the same...haha so I just decided to save the money! I'm going to get Sean one to wear and that's it.  :)

 

@calgarybride2015 I agree - I doubt people will notice. Ok that makes me feel better because I do genuinely love the look of the bouquet! I also can't be really bothered at this point to go back and forth over something so small.

@snswedding2016 I think your flowers look beautiful!  I would only change them if it's a big deal to you, if not, they look gorgeous as is.

I agree with the other ladies, I think your bouquet looks beautiful. I don't think anyone will really notice the very subtle purple tone. Like Kim said, unless they bother you a lot, I don't think it's worth it. They really are beautiful already

Thanks ladies for all your input! I'm going to stick with them - they are beautiful and purple is my favourite colour so it works out! haha

 

Decor DIY Projects

 

I started working on my letters last night. Can I just say that I wish Sean and I had a less curvy first initial - gah!! Why couldn't our names start with 'L' or "M"....the curves were killing me last night. Anyway I finished the first 'S' and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. There are a couple of wrinkles in the paper but I actually think it works with the book pages. I also didn't have to destroy any books. I found some great paper at Michaels - some with written text, some that look like old letters and some vintage paper as well.

@snswessing2016 I'm so sorry, I've men super MIA lately. But everything is looking so amazing. You BDR looks like it was amazing and super helpful in the last parts of your planning process. I think your table centerpiece look great on those tables. Simple yet cute!
Congrats on the one year engagement anniversary! Kyle and I just celebrated ours too at the beginning of October. It worked out that we had already planned to go for dinner with Kyle's family so it was a nice celebration!

I love the bouquet! It's gorgeous but I can see what you mean about the purple tinge to them instead of blue. Have you talked to the seller? It's probably not going to be noticeable and it might add some nice variation to the colors at the wedding.

Bridal Shower

 

So today was my bridal shower!!! It was such a great day but it did start off kind of rocky and with disappointment. My mom who was really excited about my shower and helping out woke up this morning with the flu. She thought she could fight through it but half an hour later was really feeling terrible. I understood and felt so bad because I know how excited she was and really I did want her to rest and feel better but I was really bummed out and disappointed that my mom wouldn't be at my shower. I haven't had any wedding events leading up till now so I was really looking forward to this and having her there as well. I decided to shake off the initial disappointment and tried to focus on the fact that it would still be a great day and it would be better with her resting up rather than trying to fight through a flu at a party. 

 

Once I got there it was great. My maids of honour did a beautiful job decorating and planning the whole thing. One of them wanted to plan a Mexican themed shower and well the other one...she's actually Mexican. You can see how the planning got "interesting" at certain points (which I'm hearing about now). They agreed on a subtle Mexican theme. haha! The best part though is that my other mom (my friend's mom)- Mama Rosa made her famous burritos!! So good!

So they were all asked to get me something for the wedding night....did I mention my 90 year old grandma was there (the girls didn't think this one all the way through but it was funny and maybe a little embarrassing at times lol)

So I now have lingerie to last a lifetime but not everyone got me lingerie....this was by far the most embarrassing gift I had to open in front of everyone (you don't want to know what I'm showing everyone...or maybe you do haha!!)

Oh we also had games including this one where everyone wrote a joke vow from me to Sean. This one was also really embarrassing to say out loud....big surprise the same person who got me the gift from above! Love those guys though, they certainly were the life of the party!

I had a really great day and feel so fortunate to have my girls who took so much time and effort to plan this day for me!  :)

 

I think we settled on a bachelorette party for either Dec 11 or 12. @perianjay my girls were talking about Remington's haha it made me think of yours!
