    I am now only 6 months away and at the end of march the rest of the money is coming available to pay for the wedding so i will be getting the rest of the stuff ordered

    I have been looking at flowers and well i don't want them, i think they are a waste of money and i don't really like them, especially the big tear drop thingies
    Q1... Is there anything else i could carry (not flower baskets!) Amy is having a beautiful wand, its really pretty

    Q2... Do the mums have button holes or corsages? or is it the bride and grooms choice?

    I still have 6 months and i am stressing already!! :dohh:

    LOL Awwww hun i was the same!

    Mothers of the bride traditionally wear corsarges ... but it's up to you and OH.

    If you don't want to carry flowers (I.e HUGE bunch) how about something like a long steamed lily? It won't cost much and they are elegant.

    do a little day by day and not get stressed! ...

    Have you done your fvours and things yet??

    Hi Yvonne

    Well i have got 9 and a half weeks left so im really stressing now .. lol. Everything has to be paid for now!! I have ordered corsages for the mothers .. just white fresias with some gypsum .. very simple. But i chose all the flowers .. i told oh what i had ordered to make sure he was happy with it but i basically chose it all.

    How about a handbag or something .. you can get some gorgeous ones in some of the bridal shops. What colour is your dress? Or just something simple .. like one flower?

    I was thinking of the cala lillies, the ones you rest on your Arm but i just don't like the ideas of flowers full stop.
    If there is nothing else to carry them i will get a really simple small bouquet.
    Might get little diamontes in them, they look nice.

    Might see if wobs would set up a wedding thread, mind you it won't help if you've already planned yours trinity.

    I need a wedding coordinator!! :rofl:

    You could wear some gloves or carry a decorated horseshoe. the horse shoe is very traditional.

    I know how you feel about the flowers. I actually went to the grocery store and got mine for the wedding. I had the florest there do them and Saved so much money. I also had them do the cake. Was a very smart move. Here is a picture of the flowers. Mine, my sisters, my parents & husband. And we only paid like $200 for all the flowers. Even got some for DH Mom, Dad and My aunt, uncle, best man and Grandma. Shop Around!

    That was a good deal then Suz .. we are paying about £180 for our flowers .. buttonholes, corsages and my bouquet (which is just dark red roses with pearl headed pins in the centres) and then we are getting bouquets for our mums on top of that which are £40 each!!

    If i decide on having flowers then i would have little diamantes in the center of the flowers.
    If i get a pic of what i want and take it in the florist will they do that design or will they not be able because of copyright?

    I have seen some in a mag i want.

    what i have done for mine, is gone in to the florist and told them the idea that i have, they got me some books i choose the ones simlar that i wanted and they knew the idea that i had in mind and found something that i liked. and for everything mine the button holes for the men and gorages for the women are costing 85 pounds.

    I have organised my wedding .. although i have got a wedding organiser for the venue so he sorts food, flowers for the tables and seating cards and stuff like that .. all we have to do is tell him what we want and he does it. Bargain!! The rest of the stuff has been a nightmare though :wacko:

    i kept getting told to stop worrying about sorting everything, but I feel like if i dont, then who will? It must go perfectly, and I dont feel comfortable leaving it to everyone else, incase it doesnt get done. im tempted to get a wedding planner tbh.
