@mandypop:  Great breakdown! Good work!

You’re dress is gorgeous. So light and floaty. Was that your splurge?

Not many people know how messed up the imported cut flower business is. That’s great that you got US flowers. I’m making coffee filter roses, harvesting hydrangeas from neighbors’ trees (with their permission) and growing baby’s breath which is crazy easy and cheap to grow. It grows quickly too.

Looks like you were really able to save some big bucks by changing a few things here and there! I thought about using fiftyflowers but ended up going with a local florist. For me the flowers were one of the most important things about the day. And not the abundance of them. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a specific color blue? lol My poor florist was so afraid the color wouldn’t be right he had me come in 3 times the week of the wedding to tweak them.

I am with you on the chairs. We just had whatever chairs the hall supplied and it became a non issue. The little things really do become unimportant once the day is there. We set everything up ourselves so I was able to have most of my vision come to life. It sounds like you were able to complete your vision and everything looked wonderful!
