In the meantime, I was scrolling through my Reader this morning when I saw that today is
Show Us Your Life Day to show off my wedding party and wedding flowers!!! So exciting. I had my four beautiful bridesmaids pick out their own J. Crew bridesmaid dresses in chocolate or espresso brown. Our groomsmen wore black or charcoal suits, and Matt purchased them all a matching burnt orange striped tie. I thought that they looked absolutely lovely.
And here are the youngest members of our wedding party! I made the flower girl basket with silk flowers from Hobby Lobby. I had the florist do her little floral wreath, which I am totally in love with. So cute!
As for flowers, I had a really difficult time picking those out. So, so hard. And at the end, I really didn't have any idea what they were going to look like - but I was so pleased! My bouquet was lovely, filled with cymbidium orchids (I have no idea how to actually spell that) and, you know, some other stuff too. Matt's boutonniere was a big cymbidium orchid - so pretty. The bridesmaids and groomsmen had cream colored flowers. Here are some shots of my bouquet - I had my florist add my grandfather's tie pin to the top of my bouquet, and it looked so great. He also added a necklace of my grandmother's to the stem of the bouquet.
The flowers at the reception were also gorgeous! I wanted a different vibe for the reception - happy and sunny, full of sunflowers. Once again, I wasn't really sure how it would all come together, but I couldn't be happier.
