Let’s see… the biggest announcement of the week is that I picked out my dress! 🙂 Yay! It’s on order, and it should arrive at the shop and be ready for my first fitting in June or July. We’ve also selected and ordered the bridesmaids’ dresses; they’re wearing this in indigo with indigo trim.
On Sunday, we met with Kristen, the floral designer at Bride Associates. She’s going to get back to us soon with some more information. We talked about orange and yellow flowers, table centerpieces, ceremony arrangements, bouquets and corsages. Calla lilies, tulips, daisies, orchids, etc. I’ll have a better idea of what she has to offer when she gets us the quote.
I touched base again with Rachel at Jim Lee Events (catering) and let her know that we’d officially chosen our colors. I’m debating between blue (indigo) tablecloths and orange napkins, or a more subdued white tablecloth with indigo napkins. I’ll let Kristen give me some input on what would look better with her flowers.
I’ve mailed in the contract for Serenata Strings. Rich and I have decided to have them perform the following:
Seating of Grandmother and Mothers: Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring
Entrance of Bridal Party: Bach’s Air
Entrance of Bride: Pachelbel’s Canon in D
Recessional: Beethoven’s Ode to Joy
Still undecided on the prelude; perhaps one of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. And the cocktail hour will be full of fun standards.
We’re going to meet a potential DJ candidate on 3-10.
Still need to contact bakers about a cake.
This Saturday is reserved for fun time. We’re either going to Irish Fest or to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge party. Sunday evening is the Texas Discovery Gardens open house to show off the newly renovated Grand Hall (where we’re having our reception). If anyone wants to come and see, it’s 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
