Another small step towards the big day. We now have the florist booked and they will deliver the flowers to the site. It is just the bouquet and the corsage; all other flowers will be grown and arranged by us. The bouquet will look like a mix of these.

We also visited the gold smith and decided to start creating my ring. They will start with the gold ring and then I'll fit it and after that adding the stones. The ring will be a more petit version of this ring.

The underwear shopping was no big success. It ended with that I ordered my underwear at Asos and is now waiting for them to arrive. A wonder bra and spandex power panties =) Not the most wonderful to have under, but hopefully comfy.

We are also having discussions around the honeymoon. At the same time that we plan the wedding, we also renovate the kitchen. This renovation now threatening our budget for the wedding... it is not the wedding that is overrunning budget, but the kitchen! There for the honeymoon is under discussion. When is the big question and the other one is Where? And for How long?
Are we going for just a short trip this autumn or are we saving and going for a longer, but not too long or fancy trip in spring?? Well, we don't have to decide yet. Let’s see what the kitchen ends on first and then we can plan more seriously. We will know in a couple of weeks.

Tubers on their way

The Dahlia tubers I have ordered from Rose Cottage Plants are on their way to Sweden. I found a lovely white Dahlia with a bit of lilac in the center. I think that will look really nice with the color theme.


I have also ordered a pure white and a couple of orange-gold Dahlias.

More tubers and seeds will soon follow. It is exciting to try to grow your own wedding flowers =)

Plans for the weekend

We are going to the crime scene this weekend. So now we are booking different people to visit. First we will visit the florist and talk about the bouquet. I have printed at lot of images and have written down what I like and what I expect and what I don't like. I have written down colors and flower types. I think I have all covered =)

After that are we going to visit the gold smith and at last order my wedding ring. I'm excited and can't wait to try it on, even though that will be a couple of months in the future...

We where trying to book a visit at the cake-factory =) as well, but they only accept visitors on weekdays, so we have to plan going there another time. I think we have rather good view of what the cake will taste like, but the look of the cake is another matter...

We will also go looking for underwear for me. Something that is comfy under the wedding dress.

Well, the weekend is fully planned.
We haven't broken the budget yet and plans is going easy.
Wonder when something out of the blue will hit us? Maybe when we get the price suggestion for the honeymoon I'm planning... that will for sure break the budget!
And we actually have a problem. My work will force me to take three weeks’ vacation when I don't want to, which means that I don't have enough days to cover the honeymoon *sigh* we can't afford to go on unpaid vacation and I would hate to limit the honeymoon!
This means that we might postpone the honeymoon to next spring...
