I found a company in the States that sells pocket-folder envelopes. They are very helpful and their prices are great. http://www.cardsandpocketsstore.com/
I've quickly mocked up what I plan to do here:
and am posting some inspiration (below) as well.
His girlfriend is taking care of the flowers (or greenery more-like). So we went to check out some plant choices at the local nursery also.
I'm very excited about this project & know that they will do an excellent job!
See the original inspiration below.
Recently I've gotten back on track. Reconnected with my venue - there's some updates to do on the wedding site this weekend. Booked my rental company (and linens with a separate company). The last couple of days I've been working out the invitations.
To do this weekend: buy rings (maybe), make decisions on honeymoon and book registry, order envelopes & design wedding invites, update website.
Also, need to get back on track with the workouts.

Now I just have to sort out the alterations, spot cleaning & under garments.
These rings are super modern and designed by a Canadian designer
Mr. Wu's has concrete in it and mine has an accent colour on the inside.
I figure I'll just wear my engagement ring on the other hand.
I'm having some difficulty choosing shoes. This is because I have 2 very different dresses. Originally I had wanted something really chunky, like the Michael Kors huarache sandal to go with my reception dress. They are gorgeous but have high heels & are quite pricey (see right)

Here is the inspiration:
I'm loving the loose curls. Koto's talking about giving my hair a boost with some extensions. I'm unsure of what kind of jewelry or clips to use if any. We'll have to do some trials and figure it out.
I plan to use rustic pails holding local blooms throughout the reception area. Depending on the cost to having a wreath created (seen in Ceremony / other decor), I might attempt one myself like the one pictured top right. In the centre is the centre piece my Dad and his girlfriend are creating for us. The right middle photo shows a ring pillow made out of button chrysanthemums. I think I'll attempt this myself - it'll give me something to do the night before the wedding!

We're renting plain wooden chairs & we have cream coloured mats for aisle runners. We might scatter dried leaves along the edges of the aisle. We'd like to decorate the chairs on the inside row (maybe every other one) with flowers or wheat bundles.

I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to decorate it. I bought some autumn leaf garlands that I might warp around the railings. Not sure whether to have flower arrangements or to just drape the whole thing in ivy & greenery.
Part of this is due to a very limited budget but mostly Saltspring Groom & I want to keep it real. He had an image in his mind of a downhome party, near to water. We were so lucky to find a venue that fit the bill (not to mention our pocketbooks), who were flexible will let us bring our own vendors in and that is on Salt Spring Island which is also where Mr. Wu was born!
I recently revamped their site: Cedar Beach Resort
It needs a ton of decorating help but is beautiful, surrounded by forrest and perfect for our intimate, island affair!
I get ideas everyday and my favorite lists are filling up. Will be so nice to have it all in one place and start including friends in the process.
