Straying away from the traditional wedding bouquets seem like a “no-no” for some, but others are more than willing to take the leap! If that’s you, why not try these beautiful brooch bouquets. This is something you will have forever! You can either use special pieces from your family or find antique pieces that you love, and in the end add them all together, creating a, truly, one-of-a-kind piece. Your guests will be in awe looking at the jaw dropping masterpiece! Take a look at these gorgeous ideas I found on Pinterest!
Your bouquet is just about the most important accessory on your wedding day. Once you have chosen your wedding colors and have an idea of what your style is going to be, choosing your bouquet and other wedding flowers is going to be a big decision! You probably have never realized just how many different types of flowers there are, until you visit a florist. One big money saving tip is, don’t choose a flower that isn’t in season. You will end up paying top dollar for these flowers and there are so many other flower choices you could go with!

Quite honestly I would have thought the baby would be here by now, but she’s just not ready yet! I found out two weeks ago that I was 1 cm. dilated, but have only reached about 2 cm. in the meantime. My due date is next Sunday… I am really hoping she will come before then though! Waiting is definitely the hardest part at the end of the pregnancy. My hands, feet and face are pretty swollen, making it more uncomfortable on top of everything else!
The good thing about her not being here yet, is that I can finish getting things prepared. I actually just ordered a round bassinet for her to sleep in, and I can’t wait to get it! It should be here by Saturday… It’s gorgeous and she will look gorgeous sleeping in it 🙂 I’m looking forward to dolling her up all the time! I’ve gotten some of the cutest clothes and can’t wait to see her in them!
I’m sure the next time I write, my little princess will be here!
So this week we got the very exciting news that we will be having a little GIRL! My best friend, Amanda went with me to the doctors and I think we were both shocked when the ultrasound technician told us 🙂
I’ve been so excited about this pregnancy and was really hoping it would be a girl, but I didn’t want to be disappointed if it was a boy, so I kept the chances 50/50. My husband and my four year old son were deteremined it was a boy, so they were both shocked to get the news!
I have been busy beginning the preparation of designing her bedroom! I can’t wait to start putting everything together! Of course with a girl comes a lot of pink, but I’m ok with that! I have found some great pieces that I really like and will look great together. I will start adding pics and websites of the great deals I find in the future 🙂
Since just having the wedding, we will be doing the babies room on a budget! But I am optimistic it will turn out gorgeous!
I had THE most amazing bridal shower ever!!
I absolutely loved the place it was at. It was at a place called Park Alley Tavern in Olde Town Pickerington. The upstairs, where the shower took place, was very rich in history, built in the late 1800’s. The ceiling was gorgeous, I don’t even know how to describe what it was made of, but it was very elegant, vintage… Right in tune with the theme I’m going after for the wedding! When I walked in, I had to go up these dark wood, super wide stairs and was met by my hostess and amazing maid of honor! Behind her was a gorgeous baby grand piano covered with glass vases filled with gorgeous ivory, garden roses and natural branches. There was also one enormous, gorgeous orange flower I have no clue what it was.
Amanda had customized fall leaves with mine and Reubens names and our wedding date. These aligned the tabels along with beautiful olive and orange candels and beaded holders. Everything just came together so amazingly! When I had first arrived, I had numerous people tell me to go and look at the cake.. It was a three- tier round cake that was decorated with my exact colors. It was an ivory cake with white detail and very detailed leaves and acorns. The three tiers consisted of pink champagne- with real strawberries between layers, banana (delishh) and lemon. This cake was to die for! Delicious 🙂
Everything was fabulous, I couldn’t have asked for more! My friend, and amazing photographer was there and took tons of pictures!! I can’t wait to post some on here 🙂
Check back soon for pictures!!!
I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting married so I notice it more, but I know so many people getting married! I absolutely love to see decor, setup and design ideas at other weddings. It just makes me super excited to see how all my ideas come to life the day of my wedding!
I’m just over two months from my wedding day 🙂
With everything pretty much done now, the waiting part is killer. I just want it to be here already!
The only problem that I seem to be having right now is deciding on a nail color. It’s petty, I know, but something like this is important to me! I’ve been apting for a plum color, so I tried Deeply in Love by Nicole OPI. It’s a gorgeous color! I’m going to try a natural color next time I go to the salon to see how I feel about it. I don’t want to choose something that later on, when I look back at my photos, I will wonder what I was thinking. But I want something that is unique and will look glamorous and stand out in pictures!
What are you guys’ thoughts on COLOR for your wedding day?
