No, not mine. I had more of a black, dark red and ivory wedding. My cousin or my second cousin if you want to get technical.
Sunshine girl is getting married on May 15th. She and her groom are young, just starting out, with little money. As families do, we have rallied around them all working on parts to make the ceremony beautiful on a shoe string budget (my favorite!)
Her colors are pale blue, silver and white. Unfortunately an illness has kept her mother from being as involved in the planning as she wanted to be. I was thrilled to be asked to help out. They were impressed with my DIY...wedding. Super Frugal and very beautiful (if I am allowed to brag...)
She will be getting married in the same spot with the same arch that Fly Guy and I were married under nearly three years ago.
Yes...I rocked a red dress. More on that later.
I have been traveling to Cottonwood nearly every weekend for the past month in order to help get things ready for her wedding.
Thanks to a lovely friend who gave us several items from her daughters St. Patrick's Day wedding a few years back, we were able to save a bundle on bridal bouquets, center pieces, toasting glasses for the wedding party and misc items. Change out the green for some silver and blue and VOILA... a beautiful bouquet. Another cousins co-workers son got married three weeks ago, their colors were also light blue, silver and white. She has generously donated the wedding and reception decor from their wedding.
We are all re purposing items from our homes, vintage table clothes, crystal bowls, silver serving trays to may Sunshine Girl's wedding extraordinary. College Diva is doing Sunshine's hair and make up saving her a bundle at the beauty salon. Our goal is to have a gorgeous country wedding for less than $1200.00.
