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?

Thanks! I'm hoping it all turns out ok. I'm not big with design or theme or anything like that.

Veils can be fun. They have kinds that velcro part of it off so if you want your face covered for the ceremony you can do it and take it off for later, that sort of thing. Or you can do a real short one in the back of your head. It's kind of cool because how often do you wear a veil anyway?

I agree with the cake. Taste means everything!

Cute idea with the parasols.

As for missing, how about music? Band or DJ?

We are at Ruth's Chris' for reception and they won't allow for our own music. Also, I need your snail mail addy! I emailed you, but you didn't respond.

Well, for an art-deco kind of dress, and art-deco hair and veil to go with, you could try a woven crown type thing, of fabric and pearls or whatever might match your dress, to just lay on the top of your head with the veil part down the back, very filmy with lots of fabric. It would look very Mucha. In fact, I would say go look up Mucha prints on line and see if anything inspires you. You know, not to recreate perfectly, but just to get ideas. Remembering, of course, that no one really has hair like that. :)

The mucha prints are really pretty. Thanks for showing them to me!

It's all Lara's fault, her being an art major and all, I get exposed to names I probably wouldn't know otherwise. But Mucha is one of my favorite art-deco artists. OK, honestly, he's the only one I know by name. But he did some really fantastic stuff. And weddings are like little fantasies, and so are Mucha prints, and well, they just go together in my head.
