5 months to go

I know, I know. Long time no see, uhh!!!

Life has been busy with school and work, but I am still planning and coordinating the sweetest event of my life, my wedding!!!

Last week, I purchased my bridesmaids gift (shoes from Davids Bridal), the flower girl dress, flower girl kissing ball, and the ring bearer pillow. Amazingly, the groom purchased his suit from Ermenegildo Zegna.

I even found a really nice centerpiece design online from Bells of Ireland Event Florist. But the colors would coordinate with my wedding colors periwinkle blue hydrangeas, cream roses, and pink roses with a gold candle in the middle.

I also got my monogram design from Aimee of Creative Montage. She did an excellent job. Here are two of the five monograms she did for me.

Now, I am working on the silk bouquets for me and my wedding party from Designs by Jan.

Its so difficult trying to decide on flowers, but I decided on these flowers for the wedding: periwinkle blue hydrangeas, ivory colored roses, champagne with pink tips roses, cream/white hydrangeas, and magnolias.

Overall I think the theme of the wedding will be Royal Elegance.
