Like I said recently on zee Twittaire, the brand new site is freaking close as heck. The launch truly is fast approaching, and my excitement organ is going to burst soon (my excitement organ is next to my appendix, so a life-threatening, ricochet double explosion is possible).
I’m trying to keep calm, and carry on… and everything else those signs that start with “Keep Calm” end with these days. (And there are a lot of them, so all of those things.)
As you may have heard, we’ve been fine-tuning the s*** out of things for the past few days (err, past few weeks), pretty much straight through the night and into the next day, and then through the night again, and into the next day… and so on and so on and so on. Now, of course, this catches up with a person, and that ultimately means that, today, I needed to lessen the typically very high standards I typically place on myself. Just for today, though. I hope no one minds too much. So we’re gonna keep it short and sweet today, but don’t worry, I’m not slacking on quality, at least imho (that means in my humble opinion… I didn’t just call myself a ho).
In Caroline’s words:
My favorite detail of the day was the bride/bridesmaid bouquets. The flowers were grown for the wedding party in a field at a wild flower farm. Then, the girls all made their own bouquets.
People. Did you hear that? The flowers were grown *IN A FIELD, EXPRESSLY FOR THE BRIDAL PARTY.*
I imagine the lot of them merrily frolicking amidst the flowers, picking their personal favorites, pointing out beautiful ones to the other girls, all of them smiling and generally experiencing the zenith of all possible positive emotions, because, imho, THIS IS THE BEST IDEA IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
Seriously, isn’t it rad? Personalization is one of my favorite things, and this totally takes the cake.
Oh, and they had a bubble exit. Hearting that, obvs.

So, what do you think of this flower-pickin’ idea? Hot or not? :)

P.S. – We’re having a pretty hard time deciding whether to go with a smallish – but very common in the blogosphere – 11 pt font font, or a font that’s a bit larger/easier to read. So far, in the Twitter poll I’ve been conducting, you guys are split 50/50. Let’s keep this discussion going, right here if you don’t mind. :)
