Bows and Dresses

Since we're having an outside ceremony, we obviously won't be having pews. However I still wanted to incorporate something that could be put on the aisle side chairs at the ceremony site to jazz things up a little bit. In December of 2008 (I think) mom and I were at Sam's and found some beautiful wide ribbon that we decided would be perfect for making "pew" bows. I'm so glad I bought it when I saw it because it truly is perfect. My mom was a florist and is a master bow maker (she makes it look so easy). Because of her talent, I asked her to make the bows for me. This is what they will look like.....

We will attach them to the chairs that are along the inside of the "aisle" that my girls and myself will walk down. They are simple but elegant and I think they will look beautiful on the chairs!

That concludes the "bow" section of this post, now on to the dresses! I've already shared the dress options I gave my girls to choose from. Today, I present to you the dresses my maid of honor and bridesmaid picked out! My maid of honor Lindsey picked out this stunning dress and I just know it's going to look fabulous on her!

And my bridesmaid Javi picked out this beautiful halter dress that's going to look great on her!

I can't wait to see my girls in their dresses! The color they will both be in is called "Grape" and it is a beautiful deep yet bright purple!


  1. I love the halter dress in grape! It’s one we considered, too.
