pretty flower friday!

I just have to say, I found the cutest new blog!  I don't know if it's actually new, but it is new to me.  She is a floral designer, which it just so happens, I am too!  I love all of her unconventional ideas.  In fact, I think I know exactly what my boutonneire's will look like now!
I found these on her website.  I am completely obsessed.  Lately, I've been really into simple white and green arrangements. Succulents are always a plus.  I found this adorable bouquet on Brooklyn Bride.  I love the succulents, coxcomb and green roses!
I only wish I could have this exact bouquet!  I'm a little worried about my floral options in Kansas.  I'm sure most of you know how picky I am... and now I've become a flower snob!  I would love to make the bouquets and boutonnieres myself.  I'm going to do my best to do what I can!  Even though I change my mind constantly, I'm fairly certain this green and white combo is going to make it to the aisle!

location... check! one down... many, many more to go

So, Ben and I have been super lazy about wedding planning, as I've mentioned before.  I will tell you what our first official plan is... But first, here is our awesome new vase from CB2.  I found it on a recent trip to Trader Joe's.  They just happen to be right next to each other, which is good when I can find things for only 7 bucks! Yes, that's right, 7 bucks!
We decided on a location!!  The Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, Kansas.  Once we had the idea in our minds, it was the only place we could think of having our wedding.  We are getting a good deal and having both the ceremony and the reception there.  It's nice to have something set in stone!  

In other news, my mom is coming to visit this weekend!  Needless to say, I'm pretty pumped.  This means not only mother/daughter fun time, but also mother/daughter WEDDING fun time!  I have yet to try on an actual wedding dress.  Hopefully that will be something we can do.   I will post pictures of our weekend next week!
 Early Valentine's Day flowers from Ben!  So cute!

I wouldn't mind...

...seeing Ben in a suit.  You know, I'm fairly sure I never have.  I've spent so much time thinking about what I'm going to wear, and my bridesmaids, that I have barely thought about what Ben will wear.  Here are a few looks I like and hopefully Ben would like too!
I like this look because I can really see Ben in it.  I think he would love the vest.  He definitely needs to wear a vest!
I'm not too sure about the pinstripes... but I think Ben would like it.
Here it is, the main attraction!  I can see it now...
