We signed a contract with Jim Lee on Thursday for our catering services.  In addition to providing food and linens, they’ll provide flowers for the buffet tables.  Our rep is checking to see if they can also provide matching flowers for the reception tables at an additional fee (they don’t usually do this, but it would just make things easier).  If not, we’ll start contacting florists in the next few weeks.
I’ve made arrangements to meet with Tiff’s photographer friend, Shawna (we met her at the bridal show), on Friday after work.  She gets big bonus points with me by being willing to meet at 6:30 in the evening, and also because she works just a few miles from me. And being Tiffany’s friend doesn’t hurt. 😉
I’ve contacted Serenata Strings and asked them to reserve the date for us.  I need to get back to them later with a down payment and a set list.  They’ll be performing during the ceremony and cocktail hour.
I’m fairly certain at this point that our colors will be tangerine and cobalt/royal/navy blue (I’ll let Tiffany and Sara settle on the exact shade, since it’s what I’m going to dress them in).  The flowers and some accents will be tangerine/orange and the linens, blue.
Next up: dress shopping on 2-25.
Still need to research DJs.  Hoping to find a DJ who also does uplighting, otherwise, I need to hire a lighting person as well.  Cake can wait a few weeks, but am looking at Mon Petite or Frosted Art bakeries.  Haven’t started looking at florists yet.  Started looking at invitations last weekend – will try to reach a decision on those soon, so we can send save-the-dates.

There’s another bridal show in Plano on 3-11, if we still need some more inspiration. 🙂
