The Tall Englishman and I tie the knot on August 27th and we are currently seeing the price tag go up and up and up... (and I'm not helping - look at the cute ring bowl that I want to get from ETSY! We can keep our rings in it after the big day - I love a good ring bowl!)
Here's some things that got added to the wish list:
1. Video-ographer... Very good thing to have to remember those moments in between when the photographers will be shooting. We might just end up giving one of our friends a flip cam and saying "go in peace". Any thoughts about this from other brides??
2. Flower upgrades. Instead of doing 2 big arrangements with hydrangeas, I thought it would be nice to do 6 small arrangements with lovely tea roses, some hydrangeas and also other flowers in shades of purple!
Plus I want to have anyone who wants to be an "honorary flower person" whatever age go to the back and grab a little basket of petals and TOSS AWAY down the aisle before any of the wedding party go down! (Side note: I'm still a little bitter - but I was a very bitter 10 year old as NO ONE had asked me to be a flower girl. I don't want anyone to say "If only I could've been a flower girl" - well now is their chance! Go to the back - grab a basket - and off you go!)
3. Wine and Beer Open bar - all night, not just the one hour we planned.... In every magazine I've read it says that you wouldn't invite your guests to come to your house, serve them a glass of wine and then say "Hey - now I don't want to give you any more wine - so tough cookies. You have to pay for your own now."
So thus at a wedding you should pay for at least wine and beer for the whole night. Now my family are not big drinkers, so this should not be a problem. But the Tall Englishman's family is... English. Fill in the blanks yourselves, Chickens - there will be booze a-flowing with the aide of our guests from across the pond... (ca-ching! ca-ching! ca-ching!)
