If you really knew me, then you would know hands down how much I l.o.v.e. this wedding from Offbeat Bride. It was super crafty, mucho handmade, and EXTRA flamingo-y.
One of the important things still left on my to-do list was attending the Pre Cana workshop with the fiance. We have had the registration form, since the spring.
So I called today to see if there even was any availability left for this year, thank the stars there was! As an exception, we are going to do ours next weekend!
::phew:: One big thing almost done.

They came! The silk flowers from afloral.com came, and I love them! They shipped super duper quickly (I barely just ordered them), they were packaged really securely, and I'm so happy about what the flowers actually look like in person.
I was mostly worried about what the flowers I purchased, were going to look like when they got to me. I've seen those reality shows where they send off for a "great deal" on some "beautiful flowers." And what they get is a rip off for some butt ugly buds.
And you know, I really love them.
My laundry list of flowers:
I'm super stoked.

So me and the Fiance went to Old Time Pottery today, looking for some mason jars. Instead, we found some light pink ranunculus flowers!!! I've been looking times three, and haven't found a single stem. Online, in stores, wholesale websites... nothing. And then, on a whim we wandered into the flower section.
And there they were.
I am thrilled.
Now, technically I only found 7 stems worth of them (one stem is two full flowers and one bud), so I still want more. But, I have hope again.
And better yet, now I have some light pink flowers that I love.
**UPDATE: So I did it. I finally ordered silk flowers from afloral.com, that I've been looking at for way too long. I ordered a boatload of fuschia ranunculus, several light pink peonies, some light pink carnations, and some miniature pink ranunculus.
Now, I just have to wait.

i've talked about getting my girlfriends together to have a "prom night" for so long, that I'm half tempted to just buy this beauty. imagine just dressing up in loads of tulle, going out for a fancy dinner, maybe walking around walmart (hah), then having a house party decorated with a theme.
but, i'm a complete fan of having your bridesmaids wear vintage prom dress look-alikes. it would be completely adorable.

How crazy would this be as an alternative to flower bouquets?
I'm just not sure about the flower thang. And we've got a pretty playful theme. Tootsie Roll pops maybe?
Maybe even using something else to beefcake it up a bit.
**UPDATE: After finally hitting some good luck and finding the flowers that I want, this idea is shelved. However, I think I'll do this for the rehearsal. Give all the girls tootsie roll pops? Yeah, sounds good.
