Wedding Prep - Flowers

My mom got married last Saturday and I was her "Wedding Planner." Just putting it out there - being a wedding planner for your own mother while a mom of 3 young children (one still nursing) is NOT a good idea. I had half a brain the entire time. Thank goodness for Misty (Ron's wife) helping me out the entire week before the wedding.
Anyway, so to save some money we decided to do our own flowers except for her actual bouquet and Jerry's boutineer. This is the first time I've done flowers and I think they turned out quite well. Misty's mom is a pro and she taught Misty and I how to do them. So, the top picture is the little girls bouquet (which is now a little squished and battered because they were using it like a bat) and then I have an example of the men's boutineer and then a women's corsage and finally the last picture is a picture of hair accessories that Misty and I made.
I really enjoyed making it all and feel quite accomplished because of it. :)


  1. Someday you will have to teach me. I liked the flower berets a lot. I doubt I will need to learn how to make the rest. They were all very pretty.

  2. I love the girls' bouquets. Beautiful! And I can't believe you agreed to wedding planning at all with three kids. You're much more brave and competent than I am!
