Ribbon, Paper Lanterns and MORE.....

Ribbon, ribbon and more overwhelming!!
Mom and I hit the road today looking for some supplies and ideas for some DIY projects for the wedding. I realized I was going to need ribbon for a few projects. What size? What color? What texture? Rolls and rolls from ceiling to how did I end up empty handed?
I am not a crafty person. I just can't visualize what the ribbon will look like around the bouquets without the bouquets in my hand. In the back of my mind, I know no one will notice and/or care; they are just flowers for crying out loud. 
Regardless of ending up empty handed, I still had a great time spending time with my mom.  She is good with crafts and probably better at putting ideas together than I am, so she will be pretty busy helping me out the next few months.
Every store had paper lanterns, just not the color I was looking for. They are probably going to blow away anyways but I still want to give it a shot. I ended up buying a few white ones from Michaels just to test out and see if my ideas work. Hopefully, I will get to this tomorrow afternoon.
