Boston Bride!

Name: Sarah
Age: 27 (just about)
Wed-day: May 30, 2009
Wed-partner: Nathaniel
Wed-place: Liberty Hotel, Boston, MA
Wedsite: too lazy!
Wed-deets: Mine is just around the corner, but I wanted to let people know you can meld a super-fancy and DIY wedding! My fiance wanted a big party in a fancy place while I wanted something super low-key (he's wishing he listened to me now!). I'm making my dress as are two of my bridesmaids. Our color is varying shades of lilac, so all the girls can have different dresses. I'm cutting lilacs for bouquets the day before and the table decorations are going to be little plants from the garden store in vintage milk glass containers. We ordered invites off etsy.com and I purchased a bridal cocktail hat from the site as well. Since we're getting married in MA, one of our friends is marrying us. One of our friends at MassArt is doing the more formal portraits and another who do party photography is doing the candid shots. Right now is crunch time and the big debate is floral arrangements at the front of the space to delineate us getting married from everyone in the audience. Of course I think they are a waste of money, but he wants them, so we'll see. I'll keep you updated!

can you get two pots of something, like some pretty purple potted hydrangea bushes? then you could move them to be near a cake table/etc in the reception itself. That's how were planning to do ceremony decorations - big drama on smaller pricetag and then someone can plant the things later and be reminded of your big day.
