I wonder if the roses bloom because so many people get married in the month of June or so many people marry in June because the blooming roses make it so beautiful? Stephen and I chose June because it gave us enough time to plan and worked well with our families. We only have nine days to go! Here’s some roses I’ve seen recently, and they’ve given me peace during this time of wedding-ness:
On April 16th, 2015, my boyfriend and I will have dated for six months… On the topic of flowers, Mr. Boyfriend remembers what I tell him, and then surprises me when I don’t expect him to. He did it again!
On Monday night, I walked in to hang out a bit and saw these:
Wedding Lessons: Helpful Things to Know
Last week my sister married her best friend Danny!
Here’s some helpful and fun things that I learned from helping with my sister’s wedding:
-Ruth gave all of her bridesmaids a soft pink robe to wear as we were getting ready for the ceremony. It made us all feel special and beautiful. The dresses she had us pick from also looked great on all of us; a dusty mauve and we got to pick styles that fit us :).
-Make sure your parents get to the church! When we came down from our hotel room, my parents had missed the shuttle, so we all crowded into the limo, and we all made it to the church in time.
-At the ceremony in the church, just seeing how joyful and happy Ruth and Danny were made me beam! The Ave Maria made me tear up.
-Fresh flowers are worth the money. My sister chose roses, and their fragrance added to the beauty of the day.
-Donuts instead of wedding cake is a fun change of pace. My sister got The Donut Vault to drive their old-fashioned donut truck to the venue to serve amazing, moist cake donuts! Triple chocolate, chestnut, and wedding cake were among the options. My sister had two for everyone, and there were a lot left over.
-Live music and dancing added to the night. Danny and Ruth’s dance lessons paid off because they looked like they knew what they were doing. They are a handsome couple.
-Having over a year to plan gave my sister time to plan a gorgeous wedding. It also gave us time to get closer, so I’m thankful they took so long.
Congratulations, Ruth and Danny!
