Wedding flowers and dresses

wedding dresses

My sister got married yesterday in an evening garden ceremony; for the occasion, my mom and I sewed flower girl dresses for my two youngest daughters, and a junior bridesmaid dress for my oldest daughter.  I used the opportunity to experiment with different embellishment techniques I learned from this class – it was fun to make each of the dresses complementary, but with different features and flair.  I think that they all looked beautiful!

I was also in charge of all of the flowers at the wedding, including the ceremony, table centerpieces, and all the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.  With the exception of some of the blue hydrangeas (from friends’ bushes at the coast – mine were too far gone already) and some supplemental green Annebelle hydrangea blooms from another friend, all of the plant material was cut from my garden.  I couldn’t have done it without the help and artistic expertise of my friends Genevieve and Carolyn – girls, you could do this professionally!

  1. Oh my gosh, the girls are so lovely, and I imagine it was exciting for them to be part of the wedding party. And the bouquets and arrangements are beautiful. What a wonderful gift you gave to Amanda. Love, Jenny
