1) I had my dress fitting!!
2) My mom picked out her Mother-of-the-Bride Dress
(Chris's mom got her Mother-of-the-Groom dress too!)
3) I picked up two of my bridesmaids dresses for them, and I LOVE them! This was the first time
I saw the actual dress in the right color in person. The lighting in this picture is HORRIBLE...this
is actually a gorgeous bright clover color:
our table numbers. Seriously, we went to about 5 different Dollar Trees around PA this weekend
to find the matching frames to the first batch I purchased around Christmas. Apparently, Dollar
Tree changed out their inventory around the new year. These frames are not in the black color
I want, but my dad is going to spray paint them black to match. More details on our table
5) And lastly, my mom and I learned how to make tissue paper flowers! I came across a how-to
for them on Dolly's Getting Married. The video was just pictures and I wanted to actually watch
a video of someone making them, so I found Arianna's video here, and this was also very helpful.
I really just wanted to know how to make these in general and wasn't entirely sure if, or how, I
would incorporate them into the wedding.
First, we practiced with some leftover Christmas tissue paper my mom had laying around:
|So cute and super easy!|
Then I tried incorporating some cream tissue paper as well. I forgot to cut the ends on this one, so it's not as nice and I would try and have the green in the middle instead of the cream. But this was a good practice!
I have a few ideas mulling around in my head of how I can incorporate these...mainly for our rehearsal night..not the actual wedding. Again, not entirely sure if I'm going to use them, but if not..I've got some great bows for presents now!
Any suggestions on how to use these?
