My daughter Jamie and I attended a local Bridal Show yesterday. It’s just what we needed to start our minds racing about all the plans that need to be made.
Some of you may remember Dan proposed to Jamie at a Mystery Dinner “Titanic” party at her sister’s last October.
Miss Tessie Anderson said YES!
We sat through a lengthy but enjoyable style show. The dress shown below is ever so slightly similar to one of our favorite designs. I do believe my daughter’s face will look softer and happier than this model! Jamie likes the mermaid skirt and we really liked the one shoulder neckline. She has not tried any on yet so she may totally change her mind at that time. Soon we will have a mother/daughter (and her two sisters) shopping day to watch the Bride to Be model wedding gowns!
We sampled many, many wedding cakes. Funny that most vendors were serving chocolate. I just had to show you this wedding cake below. A family friend’s daughter was married last summer. The bride’s sister made this cake!! Isn’t it absolutely picture perfect beautiful? She is only twenty something and I can see a future in cake decorating for her if that’s what she chooses!
This is called Basket Weave
We have been talking about flowers. This will be a fall wedding and she is considering a burnt red/orange.
She likes callas, hydrangeas and roses. I am trying to decide if I want to tackle the flowers. I have been a floral arranger for twenty years but have not done wedding bouquets. This will be a destination wedding to Mexico and I may try doing the flowers since we won’t need so many.
Are any of you helping to plan a wedding this year?
