Clueless That is ME

I just feel so clueless at the moment. What colour do I want. What dress do I want. What kind of centrepieces do I want. I don't really know. There is a whole rainbow of colour and I am totally clueless.

I have some ideas and some vague sketches in my mind but than I go and see something else and than I like that.

Pink and Silver / Gold.
Yellow with Orange or Green and White.
Yellow is the colour trend for 2008 - hmmmm

I absolutely love Sunflowers and Gerbera's..... The Gerbera colours are stunning and would be so fresh for summer.

Options, Options and more Options - its all making me a bit dizzy.

I went and had a look at the venue that I won in the competition. I hated it. And what made it worse is the lady who is actually the owner was most unaccomodating and actually went as far as to say that she really didn't think that an Indian girl would win it. Her prize was catered more towards the "White" market. I was totally flabbergasted - Ummm Hello you are Indian yourself you cow. She was unaccomodating and her whole attitude just put me off.

Well so much for that - I really didn't like it and what she was offering was really beyond unreasonable. I was on the verge of tears on Sunday evening. I honestly thought that I wasn't going to find another venue. I went and saw 2 about 2 weeks ago and when I won the prize, I assumed that all my venue woes were over. I was stressing that those venues would be taken. Well I called on Tuesday and they are not taken. The one is really beautiful but it is not complete as in fully built. They still have to put in bathrooms and a roof. I am a bit skeptical about that as what happens if they don't finish in time. So it looks like it's going to be the one I saw first. It really is beautiful.

The rest of the prizes seem to be coming along nicely and everyone has been very accomodating and excited to get the ball rolling - except for The Cow who thinks she is Miss high and mighty.

I just wish I weren't so clueless about what colour I want??????

The yellow does sound like a lovely idea for your colour scheme, so vibrant and fun.
And I love Gerberas too - we have a flower/fruit shop downstairs from the office, and they make for the best cheer-upper flowers.

Hi, I'm sorry you're having trouble with the venue. It's really ridiculous that she's so rude, the STUPID cow! Yellow does sounds wonderful, but in the end it's what you want to give yourself time, and you'll come to a decision soon. :)

Hey Sleepy.

Thanks for the words of encouragement....

I think i will just let it go and stop stressing and I will eventually come up with something that I like. Hopefully.

oh my goodness how could that woman be such a snob!!!
gerberas are gawjiss and bright. i like sunflowers too, but they are very thirsty once cut and sadly do not last the duration of a wedding, especially in summer.
my advice on colours... hhmmm...
get flowers and such in each colour you like, keep them close and eliminate them one by one over a period of days.

Hi Angel.

Thanks for the brilliant idea. I was thinking that since I love Gerberas and I really want them for my wedding I am going to find a whole lot and pick the colour that I love best. but your idea is even better.

Mwah you are the best.
