I don’t like the idea of the guests throwing confetti or rice, so I’d really like it if I could find petals instead. I’d prefer white wisteria or cherry blossoms, but sakura only bloom for a month or two depending on the climate. Plum blossoms would work too, but I’d be in the same boat as with cherry blossoms.
Apparently, there’s a new trend where guests would rather give the couple money than a gift. For that reason, I’ve set up a Dwolla account for those who’d prefer to give monetary gifts and I’ll be setting up an amazon registry. I’d go with Etsy, but I’ll save that til the eventual baby shower(cause etsy has great baby stuffs.)
so I’ve got the venue, which makes me happy, but it’s hard to choose between Spring and Hanami(cherry blossoms) and Fall with red maple leaves. Both are really pretty and I’m not sure if I want to go with pastels or deep rich colors.
anyhow, it’ll be at the Ft Worth Botanic Garden. That’s where all the pictures of the place are. I’m really happy about this decision.
