Pink Saturday..Bridesmaid Bouquet



One thing I love about Beverly at How Sweet the Sound--she's consistent. No matter what is going on, I know that Pink Saturday will be ready for me and SO many others to join in and peek into on Saturday. Thanks Beverly! We're glad we can count on you!

If you read thoughtsfromovertherainbow at all, you probably know we have recently had a wedding. Our one and only daughter got married two weeks ago! These are the bridesmaids' bouquets filled with pink roses, white roses, green hydrangeas and bells of Ireland. I do not know why the picture is so small!




Here are two of the bridesmaids in the church before the wedding. You can see the bouquets just a little better. The dresses were a beautiful shantung silk in a color called "mermaid". Our daughter has always loved pastels. She's a pink kind of girl! Someone remarked that it looked like a Lily Pulitzer wedding, but that was not our intention. We just used the bride's favorite colors. Now I thought that once the wedding was over, I could put my feet up (or my body on a raft in the pool) and get back back Blogland on a more regular basis. Wrong! The past two weeks have been a blur of moving the bride in 100 degree weather into her new home, sorting and returning duplicate gifts, and transforming the house from a bachelor pad into a nest for two. I'm not complaining---they will still live just on the other side of town!


Thanks again to Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ for letting us into her pink world each Pink Saturday . Now click and see what everyone else has to offer!

  12. Beautiful bouquets! And the dresses are stunning - how nice to see a dress that doesn't scream Bridesmaid Dress! (I have about 10 in my closet that are still screaming!) Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. Hi Susan! So that's why I haven't heard from you! Been a little busy!!! The flowers are so pretty! Guess what?! A daughter of a friend of mine just got married last weekend at Gmtwn Presbyterian! I helped do the flowers! I made the bride's bouquet with green hydrangeas, white roses and cymbidium orchids with little pearls stuck here and there! We wrapped the stems in a french braid type effect with pearl pins at each knot in an ivory satin ribbon! We put some beautiful Southern Living at Home hurricanes in the church windows. It looked so pretty! That's such a beautiful church! Met Mrs. Russel...I can't think of her first name but her son Drew, the sexton, went to school with both my boys and played football with them at Briarcrest! It certainly is a small world after all! Look forward to our outing! Call me! Lauralu :)
