- Wedding: July 2013
This has been a very decisive and productive week. I’ve been working on my DIY felt flowers for a few months, but lately I’ve been feeling unhappy with them. They look fantastic, but once I held them next to my lace dress, they didn’t look right anymore. Also, we had changed the ceremony from a more casual outdoor ceremony to combining our ceremony and reception in one venue. I talked it over with my two best girl friends then mulled it over until last week when I decided on fabric peonies with brooch centers. Thank goodness I still had plenty of room in my flowers budget.
All of a sudden, a couple of other decisions fell into place. Originally the wedding didn’t really have a “look” or a theme, which was kind of stressing me out, but we couldn’t really figure out anything we liked. With the flowers changed, suddenly it came to me that we could use peonies on the cake as well and even put brooches in the middle of the sugar flowers. Today I ordered the brooches and have extra to scatter around the cake and cardbox tables. The cardbox will also have brooch accents. All weekend, I’ve emailed back and forth with some bakeries and have the list down to 4 for tastings. In the spirit of being decisive, I’ve also figured out my shoes!
*Satisfied sigh* It feels good to feel great about the wedding planning again.
