last minute details...
Some brides may (or may not yet) know that no matter how much planning you do ahead of time things some how slip off the radar & at the last minute, someone will get your back. BUT, that's why you have bridesmaids!
I was finishing Nicole & Josh's programs last week and asked if she ever ended up finding a guest book...she hadn't. While I would never claim to be a guest book extraordinare, I think it came out alright & the designer side of me was so pleased that I got to use some of the mountains of pretty paper I have laying around + match the book to the programs + play with some ribbon binding! Some of the other "maids" came to the rescue as well with the hand-crafted pens (pictured), a hand-sewn garter with a little something blue (sorry, no pics of it!) & it was a family affair putting together some georgous fall-inspired center peices!
The wedding was beautiful & came together perfectly. Even if the dress had to be re-fitted (again, last minute), they gave the groom the wrong tux, & the Unity Candle was lit...um...backwards for the ceremony...but, this couple is truly strong, they just laughed and rolled with the punches!
*Don't you love the orange calla lillies for a fall wedding! They looked amazing with the black ribbons and dresses!
please excuse the blurry photos on the guest book...I had to photograph it at the reception (with questionable lighting & after a glass of wine...) but the writing on the inside is the same Robert Frost poem from here.
