Yesterday I Put On My Event Planner Hat
Several ladies at church, including Becky at Hospitality Lane, are helping a friend at church with her upcoming wedding in October.
Becky is coordinating all the food, and I am doing my thing which is decorating and flowers.
Ruth is remarrying her ex-husband. I asked her how this all came to be and she said that after seeing the movie "War Room" she set up her own war room and began to pray for her family, and this is fruit that came out of it. Their adult son and daughter are their attendants and I believe this event is going to be huge in the lives of their family.
Yesterday I took Ruth to the wholesale flower place that I use for fresh cut flowers for events that I do. We looked at greenery, flowers, ribbons - talked about lots of choices, and made some decisions. There is nothing like a bride to be actually seeing the flowers and seeing how it will all go together.
I took a few pictures to help me remember.
We are not using these green buttons mums, but its a color she liked
I'm always fascinated by the choices that brides make in their flowers. They always reflect the brides personality - this bride is very traditional. She is using her original wedding colors, and while not using the same flowers (daisies and carnations), she definitely made traditional choices.
I believe it will be a beautiful wedding. White tablecloths, floating candles, a sweetheart table. I'm going to try a unique floral arrangement for the sanctuary, an idea I had as we don't have an alter or similar space to put a floral arrangement on. I'll let you know how that works out!
I'm using the glass cylinders that we purchased for Emma's wedding, to duplicate centerpieces that Ruth had found on Pinterest! It's going to be very pretty!
This is the space we'll be working with and rather than a buffet, which this reception was, Ruth's wedding will be a sit down dinner, with servers.
I'll take lots of pictures, and be sure to share them here with you all.
