So you all may remember where I was head over heels obsessed over those composite bouquets!!! I'm sooo thrilled with the way they turned out!

The bridesmaids had the smaller ivory ones with a champagne ribbon tied around the handle. And mine was done with a green rose and ivory ribbon!!! They were PERFECT!! And I was able to dry mine out and now I have it FOREVER!!!!!!!!!! Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but...I have it! LOL!!

Are you looking forward to your wedding flowers? Or were you absolutely pleased with your wedding flowers??

Is there a DOC in the House?

Nooo not a Doctor...but a Day Of Coordinator (DOC)

This is a MUST HAVE! I don't know HOW I thought I was going to be able to do this without one. Can you be in 18 different places at one time??? Uhhhh NO! If you are a DIYer and can't really see giving full control over for your day, at least consider a DOC. She/He can help make sure YOUR day is exactly what you wanted it to be!

But even more importantly, that DOC must be ON POINT! She/He has to know exactly what to do. Be ready for any and everything to happen. And when it all happens because it WILL happen be prepared for plan B, C, and D!!!!!!

Suggestions on how to go about hiring a DOC.

  1. You must do an interview!!!! I did one at a local Starbucks. On paper everything looks great also you suggest her allow you to attend an event she (no longer doing he/she because I'm referring to someone specific lol) is coordinating. Or at least peak in. You need to see her in ACTION! If this is going too far...at least give her scenarios and see what she comes up with. This is the ONE thing I wish I had done. I do not think my DOC was prepared for plan D when it needed to happen. Actually if she was more prepared plan A would have worked...but anyway!!!
  2. POISE!!!!!!!!!!! You can't have someone that will be a deer in headlights when you can't find the ring bearer pillow or realize the tables are set up with no dance floor! They need to know how to make something happen!
  3. Specify the attire! Do not just assume she will show up looking her best. Everyone doesn't get that a wedding is not a casual summer dress event!!!!
  4. Preferably find someone with a STAFF!!!
  5. Just PAY THE MONEY! Don't try to get a deal. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!
Even with some of the flubs that my DOC should have corrected but did NOT, my girls jumped right on in and MADE IT HAPPEN! Had me thinking...should they



*I'll be posting about the best wedding party since sliced bread later! :o)

89 DAYSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just cannot even beleive that our wedding is only 89 days away!!!

I swear I was went dress shopping like 2 weeks ago...(it was more like June)...Where-o-where has the time gone???

In true bridal fashion, I have already started to light-weight panic. I am writing this now through the fog of a near-blinding headache. This is particularly nuts cause I really have no valid reason to fret. I have everything but the cakes squared away. But that hasn't stopped me from losing sleep, breaking out in a cold sweat when viewing Macy's vast towel selection, and dropping a few pounds even though I haven't seen the inside of a gym in well over a month.

I know, I know. I need to calm it on down. I will. Promise. I'm sure some chocolate would help :).

Maybe I'll have some after going over my "To Do" list one last time!

Happy Labor Day!
