I'm kind of thinking you'll all be tired of the wedding planning in a bit under 7 months...
I'll try to keep it down to just a post or two a month... everything is moving full steam ahead. Many decisions have been made... and of course, many dollars have been spent... but this little decision is an inexpensive one. The tables for dinner will have 3 to 5 bud vases... some of my large collection of milk glass. A collection that got just a wee bit bigger this past Friday.
My mom scored an additional 20 vases... for FREE! With my recent 3 and the ones I already have we're now up to 54. A few more to go since we'll have 18 or 19 tables to "top". I'll be hunting down a few more... I'm picky... I won't pay more than $.49 to $.79 cents a piece. Our local Goodwill is WAY over priced on these babies, they're asking over $2 or $3 a piece! Another savings is that with the bud vases we figure we'll be able to keep flowers to a minimum... many home grown and from Pike Place Market in Seattle.... their prices and selection are amazing!
And the dress shopping yesterday in Seattle? Well number 5 was the lucky number of the day.... and a lifetime! Of course, there is a bit of sparkle.... and froth. And I must say, I cannot believe that she found "the dress" in such a short time! And on budget too!
It was a fabulous day that we shared with her future mother-in-law and sister-in-law. The staff at the bridal shop were wonderful and so knowledgeable! I'm not allowed to share any pictures yet... so you just get a couple of close ups of some details... and I caught one of the ring too! The setting is new but the diamond is from a ring from the fiance's grandfather.
And a final, fleeting glimpse of the princess dress, for a princess kind of girl.
And now I'm off to recount my vases... to be sure I'm working with an accurate count...
And maybe rest my weary shopping feet too,
