Ziph and I paid our first wedding-related deposit today!! (Deposit to our lovely florist, Chantelle from Flowers in Love) And while we're talking about Chantelle, I must say that after finding that cute herbal boutonniere the other day (see previous post) I couldn't get it out of my mind. So I went looking for bouquets that incorporated herbal elements and I found ->

I just emailed Chantelle to let her know that we'd paid the deposit, and because I'm a pain in the ass I sent her the two images and asked her if we could mess with the flowers *again* to try and incorporate some of the herbal elements.. now I just have to wait to hear back from her..

But on another note, I never mentioned when I was doing my mass posts what I spent my $100 eBridal voucher on at the expo! Let me just say that I wasn't sure that I'd even be able to spend it given that our wedding isn't located in Perth, making about 80% of the vendors irrelevant... BUT never say I'm not determined! On our second lap of the expo, when we were specifically looking for something to "buy" we spotted The Cake Factory's stand, and while my mother-in-law is making our wedding cake, The Cake Factory had the most beautiful white chocolate croquembouche. I've always loved croquembouches, and after calling Ziph to see what he thought, we decided that we'd order one for our engagement party! (Now we just need to set a date for the e-party!) Yum!

AND I think I might have my centrepieces & bombonniere sorted out, just need to flesh out a few more details - so watch this space!
