@MissFireFlower:  I love river rocks and my good friend just had calla lilies as her sole flower in her wedding.  It was so elegant and pretty.

@GlynnBugg13:  I know– May 4 is coming faster than anticipated ๐Ÿ™‚ You certainly had more done than me earlier than me. I know what invitation I want, but I have to order it yet. I have to schedule cake tasting (I’d just order red velvet and call it a day, but I’m sharing the wedding day with some very picky palates) and I have to visit the florist. I’m just dragging my behind on these things, for no particular reason other than sheer laziness! I just want to skip the wedding day altogether and get on with life! Get back to the times when my fiance and I HAD the time to just go hiking or travelling or rollerblading. I’m so tired of feeding this greedy and unsatiable beast known as the wedding industry!
