My mom is so excited to help me with planning, as soon as I mention any idea I have she's off to her mini netbook researching and sending me emails with websites. Once she heard about the lavender she's been my neverending supply of ideas. My parents even bought some lavender plants to plant in the backyard which should be mature enough to pick for the wedding in a year. They found an herbal farm in the bay area and visited during a weekend trip to San Francisco. My mom sent me a care package with some of the loose lavender buds they sell.
