I know I said my next post was going to be about the reception decor, but I just realized that I forgot to show you the bouquets.
J & I each had white bouquets. I went back and forth for a while deciding if I wanted a dark wine colored rose & calla bouquet or if I should carry a white bouquet. In the end I decided to go light since I didn't want such a stark contrast between us. My bouquet consisted of white dahlias, scented geranium & white roses and J's was lily of the valley and white roses.
We both had charms hanging from our bouquets to remember our loved ones who had passed. I had 3 charms...one for my grandmother, one for my best friend, and another for J's father.
And J had two...one for her Dad and another for our best friend. It was a nice way to remember them.
Our attendants held wine colored bouquets. Honestly I didn't have a chance to see them until the wedding...for some reason they weren't included in our flower sample. I might have changed them somewhat if I had a chance to preview them but I guess they turned out ok.
And our flower girl had a flower hair wreath...her mother wanted her to wear one so we were sure to honor her wish. And she carried pink petals in a basket in memory of her mom.
Next up for real this time is reception decor!
