OMG FLOWERS!!

I went to a flower consult at A Moment of Grace Florist in Warrenton, MO and I am in LOVE!! The florist was really nice and didn't try to upsell me or change my mind. She really helped me pick out some beautiful bouquets and arrangements for my wedding. The final dollar amount? $770! Can you believe it? That's not too shabby for wedding flowers. We're going to another consult in April...actually about a month from now. April is a tough month. The first weekend is Easter, the next is a staff meeting for a convention that I work for, the next is Anime STL (must get apartment clean before Josh gets here), and then FINALLY I have a free weeekend. So I'm going to go for another consult in April with River City Floral Source in St. Charles, MO.

I'm really surprised at how inexpensive everything is. Okay, not inexpensive. That was a poor choice. What I mean is it's amazing that I'm staying either really close to budget if not totally under. Like the reception? Totally under. Flowers are under...photography is under because his parents are gifting us with a thousand dollars to help pay for our photos. We're not doing a limo. We talked about it and it seems silly to pay $400 for a limo when the church, hotel and reception hall are all about 3 minutes from each other. Curse you, Type A personality! Curse you and your inability to let me book a reception hall that's more than 5 minutes away from the church! So we're going to just rent a nice SUV. Our wedding party is really small anyway and I get 50% off because I work for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. My invites were really inexpensive, but still really pretty. Thank you, Ann's Bridal Bargains! I love that site! OMG!

All in all, things are going really well.

Just over seven months and counting. Yikes!!

Yay for things working out well! When we were shopping for flowers, the first place we went to was the top florist in the DC area. they totally "got" exactly what we were going for, and were generally awesome. We shopped around at other crappier places trying to find a better price, and everyone else was more expensive and really had no clue what they were doing. (No ma'am, I do not want gerbera daisies for my victorian Christmas-themed wedding.) We ended up going with the place that really undertood our wedding and the flowers were the most beautiful things I've ever seen. It's a great feeling when you can get exactly what you want, for the price you want!

We also just rented a car for our wedding day. If you don't need it or haven't always dreamed about it since you were a little girl, what's the point?

I would love to ride around in a limo on my wedding day, but I just can't justify the expense. I would like to, someday.

I know this is an older post but I just saw you live in the same town as me and I'm in the middle of my flower hunt for my own wedding. How did your other flower meetings go?
