A Quick Update...

Last week was the first week of classes, and it will definitely be a busy semester!  Since I like to post here at least once a week, I figured I could give you a quick update.

Wedding Front:
-I have to meet with the florist over spring break to finalize flowers, again. Apparently I'm indecisive when it comes to that topic. Catch up on my past floral adventures here. I have decided I really don't like the rose+gerber combo for my bouquet, but my florist don't just want me having ivory gerbers in my bouquet. Not enough color or something. So, she wants to meet with me to see my facial expressions when she shows me samples.

-And, not that I'm not already busy enough on spring break as it is (read about that here), I will also be meeting with someone for make-up for the Bridals + Wedding Day. Not that I mind, of course, just not always fun adding things to the To Do list.

-Matt & I have dropped the ball on the wedding website, but this weekend we are going to spend a couple of hours on that. Any other info should go on there besides hotels, registry, things to do in the city, and where the ceremony and reception venues are?

School Front:
-Speaking of the Vegas conference, I have to have my thesis DONE by March 1st. That means in the next 5 weeks, I have to write 3 chapters of my thesis, edit it, get all the citations right, etc. Everyone assures me I'll be fine, but it is still intimidating. At least when the thesis is due to the A&M people in late March, that won't be a big deal. 

-Classes will be intense, unlike last semester. I'm taking a graduate level course which will be interesting, but it took me all weekend to do the readings for it. My other classes won't be a breeze either, but I am taking yoga, and I think I'll need it.

So any advice on the flower front?? Why is it so tricky for me to just pick something and move on???


  1. I haven't looked at the wedding website so you might have this up already, but you definitely need to have your "how we met and how he proposed" stories there for your relatives and such.

  2. Hi Jessica,

    This is my first visit to your blog, but I love weddings so I think I'll keep coming back!

    I love daisies. They're perfect for an outdoor wedding. I had a bouquet of tulips, snapdragon, and roses. I wanted a very "gardeny" feel.

    By the way, I found you on Mingle Monday!

  3. Your background is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous...

    I'm a wedding photographer, so I've seen my share of bouquets :) I tend to think simpler always looks better...although the wedding this past weekend the flowers were beyond gorgeous and not as simple as I usually like...there are a few pics posted here is you are interested:

    I'm skipping over to see what else you are saying about your floral woes :)

  4. Hi, I'm new to your blog! I love weddings and anything to do with them! I had a few flowers in mind when I went, but I just basically left it up to the florist. I knew that I did not want any roses. I asked for tulips and stargazers, with a few others thrown in. Just keep looking and you'll find something that you love! Good luck! Can't wait to read more!

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Good luck with wedding planning! It sounds like you have a ton going on this semester! Don't worry, I can totally relate! Can't wait to follow you =)

  6. I get overwhelmed and confused about flowers,'s so hard to know what you want until you actually see a mock up in front of you, ya know?? Just be honest with your florist when you look at the samples..don't worry about hurting her feelings, it's YOUR wedding!
