Martha to the Rescue!

Have you seen the new online wedding tools from Martha Stewart?

Just thinking about tackling our seating chart is enough to make me break into a cold sweat. Martha's seating chart tool has a drag-and-drop capability, allowing you to quickly organize (and reorganize) the seating arrangements for your reception. This will save me a lot of Post-Its!

Wedding blogs tempt me daily with photos of beautiful candy and cookie bars at weddings. Here are just a few that you will have you craving sugary sweets in pretty canisters.

And while I'm known for my love of all things sweet, I just wasn't into creating a candy/cookie bar for my own wedding.

Until a few days ago.

Mr. Bliss and I were talking about camping (we sadly have no time to go this summer). Camping, of course, led me to think about s'mores. S'mores! A favorite childhood treat. So fun and simple. And a perfect complement to our Adirondack wedding venue. So we are planning on treating our guests to a s'mores bar at the wedding, similar to the one below featured on the Knot.

Accoutrements - Check!

After another late night phone call with Christa, we both decided it was time to start really checking things off our lists. No more browsing, thinking about it, shopping around - we have weddings to plan and a summer to enjoy! To that end, I had a very successful online shopping spree last night.

The only other thing left on my accessory list is a flower for my hair. I'm planning on hanging up my veil after the ceremony and have always, always loved photos of brides with a beautiful flower tucked into their hair.

I can't decide if I should work with my florist to get a real flower or buy a beautiful flower from etsy seller Mikiye Creations.

Miss Tiramisu from WeddingBee recently posted about buying a Mikiye peony for her wedding. No worries about wilting edges, a forgotten flower or delicate petals falling to the dance floor. But is the same if the flower doesn't smell? I'll give myself until the end of the week to decide on this one!
