wedding update

I'm not sure how many of you are interested in the wedding updates. Right now, I feel like all I do is wedding stuff and work. And since I don't write much about work, this is pretty much the only thing left to talk about.

So for those of you that are interested in wedding stuff:

We've locked down the florist. She's a woman that lives out of her own home. she doesn't have a stock of flowers in her workshop, but she does have a lot of photos of what she's done and we've talked about what I want. I'll have lavender roses, lavender freesia and green orchids in my bouquet. The bridesmaids will have green orchid corsages. The groomsmen will have maching boutinnieres. The moms and dads will have the same except in a creamy white. I didn't get bouquets for the girl's because they'll be carrying parasols and all that would be too much to carry.

I originally wanted them to have flowers in their hair, but after talking to the florist, I'm afraid that the orchids would just dry up and wilt in the heat.

I've also locked down the hairstylist, though I have no idea what to do with my hair. I can't find a hairstyle that I like. My dress has an art deco feel to it, so I was looking at hairstyles with finger waves. But I haven't found anything that I like. I also don't know if I should have a veil or not. So any nhelp there would be appreciated.

I have to order the cake from the restaurant we like. The cake will be really yummy, but it won't be a fancy tiered cake like if I went to a cake decorator. I'd rather have a cake that I know will be yummy than a cake that's pretty. I'm practical that way.

We've decided to get party favors from Lindt chocolate, which is one of my favorite chocolate companies. they have these cute party favor boxes that they'll put chocolates in for me. So that will be one last thing for me to pack once we get down to the wire. I'd show you the link, but they don't have it on their website. But the party favor holds a handful of truffles.

So what am I missing?
