After being together for almost 3 years Dan and I have finally set a date. We are going to be getting married on September 16th, 2012. We are going to have a renaissance themed wedding. We are on a very tight budget so I'm doing all I can to keep the cost down. One thing I'm doing is make the decorations myself. To go with the theme I am working on making about 1000 ivy leaves to go on the pillars of the gazebo. I have about 30 done. I have a long way to go. On top of that I'm also writing the ceremony, making the invites, getting everything set up, and all om my own. I'm hoping I'm not getting over my head with this. On top of crocheting the ivy leaves I also have to find a way to make the flowers, and all of the other decorations needed for at the ceremony. Dan is doning whar most guys do and just agreeing with everything and only talks up when he really things he needs to. I have set the budget for the wedding and am doing all I can to stay in the budget. I did get the photographer set, so that's one less thing I have to do. I'm going to be gettin the clothing ordered here in the next month. So I have knocked off a few things on my list. I'm doing all I can to keep my head above water with this as I have no help to get things done. Wish me luck and I'll keep everyone updated about how things are going. Now back to make more leaves.

Thank you and as far as the advice. What flowers would be good for a renaissance wedding? I'm not sure what to make for myself and my daughters to carry.
