My Best Friend's Wedding

Zett is engaged! Well, she has been since Halloween '09, but now the planning is in full swing. She has come to me for planning advice, and even if she didn't ask - I'd be offering my two cents! We're having fun coming up with the design, and I thought I'd start to journal our ideas.
I'll blog about this wedding planning from start to finish!It's a bit challenging to work on this together - she's in Houston and I'm in Philly, but luckily we know each other so well we can communicate through cryptic emails and strange phone messages, and still get our ideas across to each other. The real challenge is selling Bryan on all the ideas, but so far he's been pretty accommodating and enjoying the creativity! This wedding is also on a pretty strict budget, so we're looking to make a lot of the elements ourselves - not a problem for this crafter!
The details so far: The date has been set for May 30th 2010! It's a destination wedding - destination: Panama! Zett and her family travel there frequently, and it's a wonderful tropical setting for those fun-chasing lovebirds.
Ceremony and reception location: Gamboa Rainforest Resort, Panama
Ceremony location: Outdoor terrace overlooking the river.
Last night over the phone I think we settled on the color scheme: turquoise, burnt orange, and red. Here's the invitation from Wedding Paper Divas that I found that inspired the color combo decision:
What we discussed last night was making the invitations by hand utilizing a flower motif on rubber stamps with these bold colors. Sample photos coming soon!
