FOR MY BOUQUET:
Yes my flowers aren't over the top like you may see on many wedding blogs, but obviously I'm my own bride, with my own taste and envision for my wedding and that's is what will make my wedding FABULOUS!!!!
Here are the roses after prepping them:
After sitting for a day they opened up nicely, making the following:
So here's some things that will be different:
1. The roses will be a hot pink to match my color scheme (these where only available for the trial)
2. The ribbon around the vase will be at the bottom, not the top like pictured, this way the stems won't show.
3. We will use 15 roses for the actual centerpiece to make it more lush, this was done with only 10 roses (all that was available)
OKAY HONESTLY MOTOWNETS I NEED YOUR HELP..YAY OR NAY FOR DIY'ING MY FLOWERS
*Note: I'm not worried about not having enough time to do them as my mom's and bm's have agreed to help arrange them; btw I timed my trial and it took 10 mins to do the bouquet (it was actually harder to wrap the ribbon haha) and my DOC (day of coordinator) will set them all up at the reception.

We sampled the following favors : Banana Infused, Double Chocolate, Lemon, Vanilla and Red Velvet. Also we tried several fillings: Baileys Chocolate Mousse, Cream Cheese, Butter Cream, Butterscotch Caramel and a Whipped Mousse.
I made sure to taste a piece of each favor, some where eaten a little more than others :)
So after lots of tasting and a few glasses of water we decided on a 3 layer cake with the following :
Bottom Layer : Vanilla Flavor with Butter Cream (the basic wedding cake flavor)
Middle Layer: Double Chocolate with Baileys (Liqueur) Chocolate Mousse
*Disclaimer : All guests are limited to only 2 slices and must show ID to eat (just kidding, it's really subtle but soo yummy)!
Top Layer: Red Velvet with Cream Cheese
We are so lucky to have a great baker, she is giving us a free cake on our 1 year anniversary so we don't have to worry about freezing the top layer (which imo is a little gross).
So we finished the specifics for the big day and she sent us on our way, with all the cupcakes of course!
What are your favorite cake flavors to eat at weddings? Which ones are hits or misses?

I made some really chic bows from a tutorial by Mrs. Emerald on Weddingbee. You can access her instructions here.
Next up: The accompaniments
Followed by: Envelopes
I really wanted to do something different from the regular printed labels, and calligraphy was just too expensive so I printed addresses on the envelopes using my trusted Canon Pixma. I used the same font on the envelopes as was used on the invitations.
Finally: The Entire Suite
Packed up and headed to the post office:
