@@ashhtayy Thanks for checking in!! Planning is going well. I have totally slacked on updating though. I ended up going with Nathan because I didn't like the 40% increase for customization for the other seller since they were silk flowers. We just paid our final payment yesterday, so our flowers should be shipped soon. I think they look wonderful in the pictures, so I am really excited to see them in person!!

 

We ordered a 9" bridal bouquet, groom's boutonniere, and a corsage:

@@cruisebride2016 Isn't Nathan the best to deal with? My flowers are in transit and I can't wait to see them :) Love the proofs he sent you! Your flowers will be beautiful.

@@cruisebride2016 your flowers are so pretty!!! I know what you mean about the ridiculous fees through the coordinator... If you don't fit in their perfect box they charge you... Hope everything works out for you, as frustrating as it is, try to breath and relax :)

@@ashhtayy I got a notification that the flowers shipped today. Can't wait!! Thank you so much for the suggestion of Nathan. He was so much easier to work with than the previous person. And, I know the real touch flowers are going to look so much better than the silk ones I was considering. They were more expensive, but I think they will be worth it!

 

@@deecol Thank you!! It is crazy how limited the packages are from the coordinators. We have been able to get her to substitute some things, but not others. We substituted an upgraded arch for the flowers that we won't use.

@ recommended them to me! I can't take any credit. Post a pic of yours once you receive them - I'll do the same :) So excited!

@ Thank you for recommending Stemple Shop/Nathan to @@ashhtayy so that she could then suggest it to me! This is a wonderful example of what makes this website so helpful! It would have been unlikely for me to come across this vendor without your recommendations. Thank you!

I have been celebrating lately and it has been so much fun!!

 

I had my bridal shower 2 weeks ago. It was in the barrel room of a winery. It was wonderful to catch up with friends and family, especially since at least half of them are not coming to the wedding.

Last night, I had my Bachelorette Party. We started at a hotel and played games. I really enjoyed the one where the girls wrote down their favorite memory of us together and I had to guess who it was. The game lead to going into details about the memories, which was fun to go down memory lane! After that, we went to a paint nite where you paint and drink wine. I am not an artist, so the wine definitely made it easy to not be a perfectionist!

Then, we went to dinner and finished the night with drinks and dancing at a club. I had a great night!!

You're so welcome for the recommendation. I hope that many people use Nathan because he was an absolute pleasure to deal with the year leading up to my wedding and his products are great quality :)

 

Your bachelorette looked so fun!! I did the exact same thing for mine except my girls added an extra stop before the club...a not so appropriate one haha. I love the painting it was a lot of fun.

 

Your wedding is coming up so soon!! :)
