nooooo, i’m not talking about brad – he definitely loves me! i’m talking about wedding flowers!
but first, yesterday was a busy busy day.
i started if off right with a filling bowl of hot cereal.
bob’s red mill 10 grain cereal again. this time topped with a little cottage cheese, blueberries, and a bit of dark chocolate dreams!
and a side of warm lemon water. i’ve been forgetting to have this in the mornings. today i ate breakfast at home (instead of at my desk), so i remembered it!
lunch was chinese food courtesy of my adviser! every year he takes our whole lab out for lunch to celebrate chinese new year. this year because of conflicts, we had to go a month late. that’s ok though, it was still delicious.
dinner was a bunch of leftovers in an attempt to clean out my fridge so brad and i can cook some more food this weekend!
and more of my bean soup!
only one more serving of that soup left. i’m gonna try to get brad to eat it (i’m a little sick of it after having it every day for 4 days!).
now, i’m going to ask for your help/advice on another wedding topic. i know, i know, i should make my own decisions! but i like getting input from other people and then deciding if i want to take their advice or not!
anyway, i need to meet with our florist soon and hash out some details for the wedding (less than 6 months away – eek!). the problem is, i don’t know what i want! so i figured i could tell you guys what i like and show some inspiration photos and maybe you can weigh in? please?
first though, if you haven’t seen my post about the look of our wedding party, you should check that out so that’s in your mind when looking at flowers, ok?
also, remember that our main color will be an aqua-ish blue. i love purple, so i wouldn’t mind if there was purple sprinkled in there too!
ok, on to flowers. what i like: calla lilies, bright colors, mums, spider mums, aqua, and purple.
i was going to post things that i don’t like, but i can’t really think of anything. i just want to stay away from too many dark colors since the bridesmaid dresses are black.
now, some pictures that i’m loving!
i think this is some kind of orchid – not sure if it’s sprayed or not, but i think it’s beautiful. it is likely that it’s out of our budget, but i think a couple of these sprinkled in could be beautiful.
i know those photos are kind of all over the place, but does anyone who has a good eye for this stuff have any suggestions???
seriously, i’m clueless. did you have gorgeous flowers that i might like? share a link or a photo, please!
please chime in with any flower suggestions! i would really appreciate it!
also, i reply to almost every single comment that i get – do you guys get e-mails with my replies?
if not, does anyone who is wordpress savvy know how to make that happen? and if you do, then great! i’m glad.
