"I Do" love weddings!

Our pastor and his wife have 4 daughters. The oldest is getting married in May. I offered to help in any way I could and was asked to help with decorating the church and the ceremony flowers. This is what my dining room table will be looking like for the the next few weeks while I try to get everything done. Well it actually looks worse than this right now.

Here is the lovely bride. We we getting the designs finalized for bouquets and boutonnieres
The bride likes things a little out of the ordinary. The boutonnieres are going to be made with buttons. Here is one that I made to make sure the bride liked it.

I am very happy with how it turned out. The buttons all belong to the bride, her mom and her grandmother. These are so cheap to make. I estimate these cost about 50 cents each. Looking online, boutonnieres cost about $12 each, so I think this is a big money saver since we need about about 22 of them.
She has also chosen an unusual flower for a wedding, the magnolia. We just wanted small bouquets for the bridesmaids so this is our starting off point.

Did I mention her colors are white, cream, gold silver and zebra? We're still tweaking the bouquets. More to follow over the next few months as we prepare for the nuptials. Stay tuned.

I'm spending the weekend in JAX. Getting a chance to get a closer look at our new place and spending some family time. We're hoping to go to St.Augustine and take the boys to the pirate museum. Should be lots of fun.
