Off to Jamaica!!!

Patrick and I are off to Jamaica for a long weekend of wedding planning! I was hoping for some beach time but our lovely wedding coordinator has us booked solid our entire stay. So to make the most of it, I have packed all of my wedding essentials: my Smythson wedding planner, a huge binder of inspiration, my Moleskin sketchbook, camera, ribbons & stationery (for color), cocktail ideas and last but not least the calculator!

After seeing this image from Rebecca Thuss' website, I knew I wanted our wedding to have a lemon theme, so the first thing I picked out was our colors; yellow, gray and white. Whether the lemons become place card holders, the centerpieces ( I'm thinking of lemon wedges in the centerpiece's water), an ingredient in the cake or special cocktails, one thing is for sure, there will be lots of lemons!

The lemon is the symbol of purity, faithfulness and love.

Have a thoughtful rest of the week everyone!

I adore the lemons - I'm very into citrus lately too, I just blogged on orange. :)
