Plan your flowers around what is blooming, lilacs, daffodils, crepe myrtles, roses, mums, zinnias, etc. You can buy a package of zinnia seeds for 99cents and get about 300 blooms....
I was thinking of just doing a single flower for the bigger girls, a little basket of petals for the little ones and a several flowers tied together for myself. Simple and tasteful.
My colours will be red and white...but I am ok with any colour flowers. I will not be doing any extras..just attendants and myself.
I just found out that there is no age minimum for witnesses so my plan is to have my oldest dd who is 17 be my witness and dh can have his best friend. Because we are not doing dance or anything I think we will just have my girls and his best friend and we don't have to have any other guys..though we could have my brother stand in as well since he will be attending.
Also..a suggestion I read on the officiant(the one I am leaning towards) was to have all the kids sign the registry...only the witness can sign the "official" document but each child after can sign on a "special" certificate to make them part of the ceremony. It would be a keepsake certificate.
So oldest daughter and best man would each sign the registry but oldest daughter would also sign the certificate. Then each girl from oldest to youngest would sign the certificate. Older girl could help the baby(who is only 2) Wouldn't that be cool? and how cool would the photos look after uh?
I am getting so excited.
And marriage licences in a town 30k away are only $80 compared to $110-$125 everywhere else. That town is on the way to another city we often visit so I think we will get it there...on our way one day.
