If I can't show off my own dress yet, at least I can show off this pretty one!
Our flower girl, my friend Patty's daughter Sophia, will look adorable. Here she is below, "helping" us cut tulle.
I love baby's breath. Only by itself, of course. I agree with anyone who thinks it's tacky as a filler flower. Alone, it's gorgeous, ethereal, simple. But also, cheap. So when I called a florist to get quotes for baby's breath and daisies, I did not expect to hear it would be more than $500. This has led me to scour the internet for videos teaching me how to make my own bouquets and boutonnieres...and here is my first attempt!
Thoughts? I welcome any comments and criticisms...I want to get this right!
Isn't this alternative to a ring pillow beautiful?
I'm not sure if we'll have a ring bearer, never mind the need for something fancy to carry our rings on. But if we did this would be a strong contender. The combination of natural elements and pretty textiles does it for me. Doesn't get much more earthy-crunchy than this!
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I adore Etsy. I've spent hours browsing the many shops, but actually made my very first purchase(s) yesterday! I fell in love with this stamp months ago:
As I type, it's being made with our names across the top and our date across the bottom. I also ordered another one-of-a-kind, tiny, fantastic fish stamp for other stationary purposes...
Can't wait until they arrive and I can try them out!
