Beautiful Corsages

Before the wedding I simply ran out of time to fill you in on some of the last minute details that came together so I'm going to start catching you up!

My amazing mom who wore so many hats throughout the whole planning process made some beautiful corsages for the special ladies that would be at the wedding.

This beauty was for my Grandmother:

And this one was for my now mother-in-law:

And these were made for my now sisters-in-law:

Unfortunately I never got a picture of the one my mom made for herself however once I'm able to recaps you'll see it. Other corsages were also made for people who were doing us a huge favor by helping in various areas the day of the wedding. Those corsages were simpler featuring only one bloom but were still beautiful! I also found out later that the morning of the wedding my mom made another corsage for someone that had been forgotten!

All of the corsages were made with the same preserved orchid blooms that I used in the reception centerpieces.

Wedding Shower Pictures!

Today I bring you pictures from my wedding shower which was held back in February. I shared the shower invitations that I made here so if you haven't seen them, take a look.

I had a wonderful time and we got some amazing things for our home. However, I was feeling veryyy sick. I believe I ended up with a 24hr stomach virus...NOT FUN! In a number of the pictures you can tell I wasn't feeling bummed about that so please excuse how terrible I look.

My best friend and Matron of Honor, Lindsey made the 7hr drive into town to be there for the shower and that meant sooo much to me! In addition, she was able to come into town the day before the shower so we got some quality girl time in! We went lingerie shopping and had a blast and stayed up wayyy too late talking. It was awesome!

My mom, Javi my bridesmaid and some of my moms friends did a great job with the decor and I loved how it turned out! I'll let the pictures do the talking for the most part...
My mommy setting things up!
The spread!
Drinks and desserts!
My delicious cake! Just wish I had been able to eat more than two bites of it!
The guest book.
The tags for the shower gifts. I had a blast making them! The hearts were made by using a heart shaped whole punch and then gluing them to the tags.
Heart shaped cheddar cheese crackers my mom found, they were so cute and yummy!
My beautiful mom pining on the corsage she made me.
My Gram (grandmother) and I. She and my granddad (grandfather) made the 2 hour trip despite the fact that about a week before the shower my Gram had serious shoulder surgery.
Some of the most comfortable lingerie EVER!
Me and my ladies! Javi (left) and Lindsey (right).
