Amanda - I love all the shoes you are posting - Can't wait to see you in a pair on your wedding day!!!! I thought this was a fun flower detail that was perfect for an outside wedding!

Lyla printed peep toes

I need some color inspiration for the wedding. I wanted to find a fabric or unique pattern to set the color scheme.

How about this J.Crew shoes? Since I need to wear flats I order them for my sister to wear with her bridesmaid dress. What do you think?

Christian Louboutin Petal Crepe Satin Sandal

I don't know why I've been into shoes lately, especially since I haven't even bought a dress. Look at these beauties I found. It's so hard to find cute flat sandals! (ohh the joys of a shorty husband-to-be : )


Cute shoes for the dress??? (Although they are backordered- but I am getting married in a year)

Bridesmaid in the Recession

Like many, I've spent a pretty penny to be honored in my friends' weddings. And although it is always a pleasure, the recession has me thinking how to honor them with out breaking the bank.

Good Article: "Always a bridesmaid --and flat broke"
Spring is here, and that means wedding season.
Though it's considered an honor to participate in a friend's or a family member's wedding, the privilege can cost you a pretty penny.
This season, however, the economy is giving some bridesmaids a much-needed break.

I love these table number lanters - stick a candle in it and you have a table number lantern - so cute!

Getaway car - or not...

I am a big fan of a bicycle built for two!

Special Touch

I guess i just really like Mason Jars - i feel like i want to post them every time i see them. I also think they make cute vases.

Welcome sign

I really do like a cute welcome sign - i think it makes guests feel comfortable and sets a tone for the wedding!

out of town baskets and favors!

Here are the candles, favors & out of town gift bags we made! She got the bag on for 50 cents each! We filled the out of town bags with a cvb st pete directory, orange florida taffy, water, candy & crackers - with a Disney touch.

From the link to my photographers blog it looks like he did a "crazy booth" at a wedding - it looks so fun and right up your alley -- here are some of them - but check out his blog for a bunch.

More than flowers

I love the lantern and really like all the extra props that make the flowers so beautiful!

I like the vase of this centerpiece - i really think it is all about the vase!


I think the color of these linens is really rich and would look great at casa feliz!

Cute Programs

I think these programs are cute and preppy - i love!

Powder Room Accessories

I think this is such a cute idea that was posted on Jean M posted on their website - A bathroom set is something that is affordable to do and it adds such a personalized touch to the reception- It is sure to be something the wedding guests will love and use - love the idea of monogramed tic tacs!

casa feliz

Here is a picture I found on a photographers website of a wedding at casa feliz...yea! i am so excited about your venue choice!

March 27, 2010

So We finally decided on Casa Feliz! March 27, 2010! Yeah!!! I can't believe its almost an entire year away. Ohh I wish it wasn't that far away, but it is the perfect time of year in Orlando!! and one of the few openings.

Priscilla of Boston is coming to Orlando! The awesome wedding dress shop will be opening soon in Dr. Phillips at the new Dellagio deveopment next to the market place. They will be located in suite 142. They are currently hiring for a team to open the store which means they must be opening very soon!

What do you think about this dress? My favorite dress shop in Orlando is having a sample sale and this Amy Kuschel dress I have been eyeing will be on sale!!!

Love Languages

Yesterday I read The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman. If you have not read this book, you should. Even if you don't have a mate, it's principles can be used in any loving relationship. Basically Dr. Chapman explains that everyone has a love tank that needs to be filled. To show love to someone you must use their love language, or they may not see your action as "love." The 5 Love Languages are as follows:

  1. Words of Affirmation

  2. Quality Time

  3. Receiving Gifts

  4. Acts of Service

  5. Physical Touch

I relayed all the important tidbits to Justin and then we took the quiz. Justin was almost equal in 4 areas. His highest scoring areas were Quality Time and Physical Touch. These were closely followed by Words of Affirmation and Receiving Gifts. He had zero points for Acts of Service.

I also took the quiz. I scored highest in Quality Time followed closely by Physical Touch. I shouldn't have been surprised that we had the same highest scoring love languages. It is rare that we don't "feel" loved by one another.
You can take the quiz for yourself:

Then I saw Bella Collina....

So I had finally decided on Case Feliz. Then today coming across a Orlando photographer's blog I saw Bella Collina clubhouse in Montverde, Fl. It is the most beautiful wedding location I have ever seen. Hmmm decisions decisions....

Back to Reality

After considering Key West as my destination wedding location, I had come back home to Orlando to plan my wedding. I am trying to decided between two beautiful locations. The first one in Casa Feliz a old spanish style home in Winter Park. It is so beautiful and I love the whole feeling of the place, but it cannot hold very many people. The second two pictures are of paradise cove in Lake Buena Vista. This place is in the key west style and is more relaxed. I need to decide by tomorrow!
