My mother got married on August 29th and it was a glorious event. I flew to Georgia for a week to help with the festivities and to make her bouquet, boutonnieres, and corsages. We did a lot of shopping to pick out the perfect flowers and I did my best to make them look as real as possible. I think her bouquet turned out great and she really liked it. If you look closely you can see the two birds that she wanted in the bouquet too. I was up nights trying to figure out the best way to keep them from falling out and it all came together nicely.
No good wedding is without problems and hers topped mine with flying colors. The rain kept coming as well as the people, so some were turned away at the door because there was not enough room at the Inn. The groom was a bit late, which was a concern but he was just having a problem trying to tie his bow tie all by himself, and he lost track of time. There was a few mishaps with the wedding program and the photographer not getting the perfect shots, but to top it off the wedding coordinator waited until my mother had her wedding dress on to tell her that they did not do her wedding cake. They had promised and arranged to do her cake but she suddenly forgot all that just minutes before my mom was to walk down the aisle. There is a special hell for people like that...but moving right along. God provided and nobody even noticed the cake was a no show.
So I guess it is safe to say that I do weddings now. I made my own bouquet for my wedding 17 years ago and it turned out great too.
I my be bias but I think my mother looks beautiful in her wedding dress and all the fabulous trimming that came along with it. I wish her many years of wedded bliss and happiness. There was so much joy and love in the chapel, no one even noticed anything was missing.
