Boston Maps

Fun BOSTON poster from Ork. My wedding planner Sarah blogged about these fun city posters a while back and when I was contemplating maps of Boston they came to mind. While they make a great decoration in an urban home I don't think they are very helpful to refer to for directions.
So, I kept looking, and I found FREE online maps at and at the website for the Freedom Trail I downloaded and saved the PDF files for printing and including in the welcome bags for our hotel guests. Hopefully the weather in October will be perfect for exploring the city on foot.

Emici Bridal

Gorgeous silk flower pomander featured in current Modern Bride Aug/Sept issue. I contacted Emici Bridal to check on cost (listed as $15 in MB article). I think these would be perfect to hang on the chairs of a few rows to line the aisle of our wedding ceremony (3 on one side, 3 on the other side). I have been pondering how to designate the aisle for quite some time and may have finally found what I am looking for. I think the silk flowers are a great idea, cheaper than the real thing, and then we can carry the look down the aisle and try to use a few similar looking blooms as part of the two boquets that will be displaced on pillars to mark the area where N and I and our bridal party will stand.
