We're set on a date now (04.20.2013), so long as the venue is available. A week or so difference is no big deal. We're going for an Old Florida feel.
The only thing I've spent money on so far is this dress from Ruche. I was worried about it going out of stock in my size, so I hurried and ordered it. It got here in maybe three days and fits perfectly. I'm only 5'2", so assumed it would have to be hemmed, but it's just right.
Planning to get these (or make my own) for my two flower girls.
I want to order these vintage Florida postcards for our invitations, or possibly supplement with some from the Flea Market here.
My mother is making my bouquet. She thought of using pearls and heavy duty jewelry wire to form flowers. She made the necklace pictured above a while ago, just as a simple example. We've been picking up all kinds of pearls whenever we find them on sale. There will be lots of different flowers, of all sizes. I can't wait!
That's it so far. We're looking at venues at the moment. There is a local tea room I wanted to use, but unfortunately they can't accommodate more than 50 people. We'll be meeting with some hotels in the next two weeks, but I'd rather have a venue with more character.
Does anyone know of any inexpensive St. Augustine/Daytona Beach venues?
