    Hi clayre, Yeah, as C0co suggests, you and hubby must like the flowers and the deco. For me, I did not use champagne roses because I don't really like them myself - guess Agnes will suggest that to most brides as older folks don't like a 'white' theme. Maybe you want to meet up with the...

    We had the stage at the centre. I'm not sure if these are their standard flowers, my hubby not that particular about flowers and I was more concerned about the color of them. I think they will use champagne roses most of the time, so you can let your co-ordinator know your preference...
