African American Weddings

A little drama and a BIG AW (flowers)

Why the drama?  Why me? I just mailed my wedding intivations on Tuesday.  FI's aunt just called to let me know she got it (that was fast!).  Well, apparently a cousin of FI's was over the aunt's house when she got the mail.  She made a comment about needing to get something to wear and the cousin hollers.... ME TOO!  Um.... dear cousin, your name is not on the invitation.  So, auntie calls me to let me know that cousin would like to come too.  Huh???  I was so glad that FI said no (this cousin has a sister and 3 brothers, and they all have a bunch of bad ass kids.... can you imagine the domino effect?)  Y'all better not start this ish!!

On a positive note, I just got the approval photos from my florist for my bouquets and altar arrangements.  I love them!!  Our colors are charcoal and yellow. My bouquet is designed with yellow and white callas, roses, lillies and snapgragons with hypericum berry accents.She will add a bling buckle to my stems after I approve everything.  My BMs are carrying yellow callas, lillies, snaps with a few berries. I am using Angel's Accents.  They are all real touch flowers.  She sent me some sample of the flowers months ago and I took them with me when I went dress shopping.... my sister thought they were real!

    Bouquet is gorgeous!!! I sent out invites last week and have started getting the drama and rsvp's back. Chile boo, tell cuz to quit playing. And sit down some where. I am frim on this list and rsvp'ing, there is no point in me backing out now, I stressed enough about the list to begin with. AND I still have a b list to contend with if I get any no's back (which I haven't YET). Hun dont stress aboutthat part, let em stew, lol. BUT those flowers DO look so real!!

    wow... there are great! The drama sucks... tell cousin to back off and tell auntie (respectfully) to keep her invitation tucked away and her closed (respectfully to your aunt)

    Very beautiful flowers! We tried to dodge your drama issue by mailing invitations to people instead of hand delivering but people still showed off the invitation. And my poor mom had to deal with people askinig if they could come too.
