My mom, Brian and I are really starting to make some headway with the wedding!The invitations that came in the mail are GORGEOUS! We ordered them with sky blue ink and they turned out beautifully. The sky blue gives it enough of that beachy vibe, but not overtly so. We are still looking for some clear round seals to go on either end of the seal ‘n send. This is recommended so that they don’t get stuck or ripped during postal processing. I think I also want to take them to the post office and ask to hand-cancel them. Hopefully they’ll be OK with that! Rather than the typical “wedding stamp,” I think I like this one! And for the RSVP, it is a postcard, so I think I might go with the tropical fruit stamps since it goes well with a destination wedding. Brian has his suit! We went to Men’s Wearhouse the other night because Brian had called them and they told him they had several men’s silk camp shirts on their clearance rack marked down to $35. We went and found a simple ivory camp shirt that we liked for the groomsmen, but they did not have enough of them, so they are ordering more for us. It also turns out that they had Brian’s suit that he wants marked down to $189, and it was the last in stock and they weren’t sure if Men’s Wearhouse would keep producing them for 2009. So we bit the bullet and went ahead and got his suit. So glad we got that out of the way! Flowers are decided on! We are definitely going with All Island Flowers. The bouquets will be somewhat similar to these that All Island Flowers created in the photo below, but the stems will be fully wrapped with ribbon and pearls.

My bouquet will be mostly blue hydrangea with some white hydrangea and accented with ivory roses and 2 or 3 small white starfish. The bridesmaids’ bouquets will be mostly white hydrangea with some blue hydrangea.I made a huge list for my mom of all the little things we need to take care of over the next few months, like the flowergirl basket, pew markers, and programs for the ceremony, and the guestbook, centerpiece decorations (other than the flowers), favors, table numbers, etc., for the reception. I’ll be blogging about plans for those “little things” in the coming days! Have a great weekend everyone! -K
