Wedding Series: Planning part 2

Flowers, decor & cake

The colors for my wedding were pink, white, and champagne so naturally I wanted simple pink and ivory roses with greenery for my venue flowers and bouquets. I also wanted to save some money so I bought bulk flowers online and did the table settings myself. For the bouquets, I had a professional do those. We had a 5:00 pm ceremony time so on the day of the wedding, I was at the venue decorating. I'm sort of a control freak like that sometimes. I had help though so it didn't take me too long.

I absolutely loved my cake. The pastry chef did an amazing job at replicating a picture I had given him. It wasn't exact which was a good thing. It looked even better than I had envisioned.

The stairwell leading up to the venue also looked amazing. The same florist that did the bouqets, also added some pretty touches throughout the venue and balcony.
Tell me, were there things you did yourself for your wedding or plan on doing? Did or do you plan on hiring a wedding coordinator?  


  1. wow that cake and your dress ARE AMAZING :) Seriously. and I love your color scheme, so pretty!

    My mom's friend is a wedding coordinater, so even though I hadn't originally planned on hiring one, I'm glad she was around because she helped SO MUCH!

  2. WOW Beautiful. I'm a new follower and I gotta say I love the pink! Did you get married at Pine Forest Country club in Houston?

  3. Very nice! I did too! Its an amazing and beautiful place!
